FLCL by Yōji Enokido was released April 26, 2000.
FLCL is a coming of age tale which follows 12 year old Naota aka Takkun in a small city called Mabase. Everything changes once he meets Haruka Haruhara. His sense of normalcy is flipped upside down in the course of 6 episode series..
I’ve watched FLCL tons of times. One of my things being Lord Canti (use to think it was Ponti); such a cool robot. And Naota himself; he interacted with everyone in his the life the same way; generally uninterested.
Something that always bugged me, was how Naota’s family allowed grown a** Haruka to stay in Naota’s bedroom. She openly flirted with every single member in the household including Naota. Any if you can truly answer that, you are the true MVP.
This anime is clever. Funny and has pretty great fight scenes. Worth, looking into if you haven’t. And if you have already. What did you think?
