Just finished whatching this. Really, what the fuck did I just whatched?
puberty, more or less
the best way to look at FLCL is to imagine there's a different anime called "Haruko and the Pirate King", and that anime has a 6 episode arc that takes place on earth. FLCL is that arc from the perspective of one of the side characters, Naota.
The manga was better.
Naota killed his dad.
Who cares when he watched it? I really don't get this kind of attitude.
People have different experiences, better late than never.
The puberty imagery is easy to get, but the show leave a lot of things without answer, like a lot regarding Medical Mechanica and Haruko past.
I think it was when Naota an her hit each other heads earlier, part of his potential went to her.
Truly best girl.
>the show leave a lot of things without answer
That's what makes it great. It gives the impression that there's a much larger world beyond the tiny, humdrum town that Naota is trapped in, and it's why he wants to leave.
That is the point.
>I like him better then day old bread.
I swear to god if the remake isn't like this I'll cry.
Why even a Remake? It isn't even that old.
They could just explore morena he world, but I doubt that it would be as good without then Gainax crew.
What would you like to see anons?
Honestly I don't want any new FLCL at all. My opinion of the original OVA is pretty absurdly high so I feel like IG trying to replicate the same magic will only end poorly. Everything about Naota's story is perfect and complete to me. There's nothing else to be said about it that I want to hear. For me, the ideal amount of connection between FLCL and whatever new material IG will produce would be something on the level of Diebuster's connection to Gunbuster.
Reminder that Production IG bought the FLCL rights from Gainax and a remake is coming
