Did You Know?

Trivia:
In the second episode, Naota tells Haruko that the reason his dad acts so strange is because "He wrote an 'EVA' book a while ago". (in the English version, "He wrote a book on the deep mysteries of 'EVA.'"). The show he's talking about is _"Shin seiki evangelion" (1995)_, a hit series made by the same animation studio with some of the same staff, and that line is a tounge-in-cheek reference to the confusion the final two episodes caused when they first aired. The director and writer of this show, Hideaki Anno, is also the uncredited voice of Naota's cat Miyu-Miyu.See more »

Puts You Back 90 Bucks- $89.99 Of It, 28 January 2005
Author: jinjos from United States

I stayed up late one night when my friend told me to "Change the channel to Cartoon Network, FLCL is on". I asked him what it was and he told me it was an anime show. I told him to die, but then he said that "You'll like it"...FINE.

Episode Four: Full Swing. An epic. from the opening to the closing of this slightly sexually over-toned episode to the end, I was GLUED to the television. For 30 minutes, moans and screams and...jeez. It was what I imagine an acid trip would be. I love it.

3 days later I had my money ready to buy all three dvds, which was gonna set me back ninety dollars. Psh. 2 episodes a DVD. So why is it worth only 89.99 of that ninety? The booklet and subtitles. The subtitles are the LITERAL translations from Japanese, while the actual dubbing is superb and fits well in overall. It would have been nice though to have the captions from what I was really hearing. The booklets are kinda hit and miss because they made a mistake in the first one and "made up" for it in the second one spending over 3 pages with some boring talking about stuff that people in general just don't care about.

I digress. Buy it. Love it. Pick up the Cd's too. The music is superb and is a great influence for rock and roll bands.
