Storyline

Naota is a normal student living with his abnormal father and grandfather. One day, a seemingly insane girl named Haruko blazes in from out of nowhere on her Vespa, wielding an electric guitar with a buzzsaw! Haruko moves in with Naota under the pretense of being a housekeeper, but Naota knows there's something obviously strange about her. To make matters worse, large shapes are growing out of his head, hatching into large monsters that Haruko makes her mission to kill. Who is Haruko really, and what is she after? You won't find out until the end of this bizarre story. Written by Anonymous

Attitude with a bass
9 August 2003 | by (Queens, NY) – See all my reviews

My all time favorite anime series. It's difficult to explain and must be seen to enjoy its creativity and cleverness. This is one of best ways to show the strides GAINAX is making as well as other greats like Evangelion, Gunbuster, and others.

Almost everyone in this series undergoes change especially Naota. I finally watched episode 5 and 6 and I never picked up on the role of Naota's brother. How about lefties, sour and sweet, or mild or spicy?? "Brittle Bullet" may be my new favorite...how can you not be amazed by its final scene and the rich color schemes. Haruko is epitome of female anime coolness and she looks so creepy with that smile and no eyes! Mamimi's manic self always brings a laugh and who wouldn't want their own Canti? Great secondary characters who just add more to the richness of the story. And a heavy emphasis on EYEBROWS. The show is linear but tangents are strewn throughout which makes this a great series and repeated viewings. I probably still won't get it, but I think it's meant to kick back, relax, and enjoy the show. Also, FLCL would not be the same without the Pillows soundtrack which fits perfect with the show. The end credit sequence makes you want to get a vespa.

For those who enjoy originality, terrific tunes, and just so bizarre it's tasty anime to munch up.
