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 »

Quotes:
Naota:When you're in a town like this all covered with smoke, you forget that there's a world outside. Nothing amazing happens here. And you get used to that, used to a world where everything is ordinary. Every day we spend here is like a whole lifetime of dying slowly. But now Haruko is here. That's how I know there really is a world outside.See more »

Once is not enough, 14 October 2004
Author: Belinda Blackrose from Blue Island Illinois

When I was watching FLCL for the first time, I had no idea what was going on. I'd never seen anything like it. So, the movie started switching gears from sweet and tragic to insane and funny, it really took me by surprise. Basically, I was holding on 'till the end because I wanted to know what it was all about. But even without that, it rocked. You may not be entirely sure at some moments why or how, but it rocks. The story starts off in a town that reminds one of one's own home town. The kid's are depressed, bored, and pretty much just drag themselves out of bed in the mourning. The adults are hyper, child-like and very annoying to the children of the town. But then she shows up. Like some kind of pop-metal not quite evil not quite good bubble gum haired goddess shows up and turns reality into chicken soup. This woman and the main character are somehow tied together through a story that involves sex, baseball, aliens, robots, secret government organizations and an underlying message about growing up and finding who you are.

The first time you watch it, you will not get it. I didn't, and most other people don't. When it's over, you only think about the crazy parts that made no sense, and you don't remember the deeper and sometimes creepy moments that kind of puts everything together. And even if you were able to get it the first time (*cough* not gonna happen.) this movie moves you more every time you watch it. It's the kind of thing you want to see again. It's extroadinarilly good. If you have an open mind, a little time, and feel like your out of place with the world (I'm betting you do. Everybody else does) then you will love this movie. Whether or not you understand it
