Did You Know?

Trivia:
Hideaki Anno made the Daicon III and IV animations while he was in college thus was born Gainax. For this reason Haruko appears in a scene with the bunny suit flying in a guitar while she screams that she is Daicon V.See more »
Goofs:
Continuity: In the under-the-bridge sequence in FLCLimax, two goofs are made regarding Mamimi's cigarette. When the small robot (terminal core) tries to take her cellular phone, she drops her cigarette. When she crouches on the balls of her feet, however, it can be seen that the cigarette is gone and not on the ground. After that, a cigarette appears in her mouth, lit and glowing... but in the next shot it isn't glowing any more.See more »

Animation unlike any you have seen before, 2 September 2005

I don't give out high grades to just anything, and I've watched an enormous amount of animation, both US, European and Asian. That being said, FLCL is the most interesting, eye-catching and exciting animation I've ever seen.

It's always difficult to capture a masterpiece in words. Instead of even attempting this, I'll just say what's already been said: The anime is incredibly hard to follow - some would say that it's full of infinitely deep philosophical implications, others would say it's just nuts. I for one have watched it many, many times, and can safely say that it IS coherent... but also very complex. It's like a lighthearted David Lynch anime.

The animation in itself is stunningly beautiful, both the visual- and sound-side. The vast amount of locations, characters, difficult angles and huge total-shots is more awesome than many top-level animated movies. As for the soundtrack, there has been released almost two hours of fabulous, original music for this series, despite that it is only 6x25=150 minutes long! That almost makes it a 6-episode music video, and still they pull it off.

There aren't any cons to this anime. It may be a bit much for the uninitiated or casual watcher, but just watching it, without really following it is a magnificent journey in it self. The voice acting, the character design, the setting, everything just comes together to form an anime unlike any you have seen before.
