I just watched episode 1 of FLCL and it was extremely hard to sit through. Does it get better? Is the first episode just really bad compared to the others? Because this was just random for the sake of random nonsense with zero likable characters.
I can't imagine this is a classic for other than the reason that it's fucking insane but that's it. Absolute drivel.

its one of the best animes ever made so yes

>>160934760
It's not my fault you're retarded, OP. The plot isn't even complicated, you have to be literally braindead or not paying attention to not understand FLCL. I personally found FLCL to be mediocre and I understood it.
>>
>>160934760
No, it's basically like that the whole way through.

all the characters in FLCL are great but it doesn't follow that they have to be "likable". they're all odd and flawed

It's shit. New season looks pretty promising tho.
>>
>>160934760
Look, anon, if you didn't like the first episode then you should probably just stop watching; It's not going to get any "better" - it's hard to improve on perfection.

If you don't like the characters, there isn't much I can say regarding your personal opinion. But you're wrong about one thing: it's not "random." This isn't Nichijou (which is great, BTW.);there are no non sequiturs in FLCL. It's very tightly paced and directed and everything has a purpose.

The problem is that it's difficult to understand what happening beyond the basic themes the first time around. You'll probably need to go back and watch it a second time to fully appreciate what you are seeing. If you aren't OK with that - with things not being immediately clear on first viewing - then this isn't the anime for you.
>>
I'm legitimately worried about not being able to identify with the new season's direction. I was Takkun's age when FLCL was made so I loved it. I'm afraid that I'm too detached from the culture they're going for now.

FLCL tells more in six episodes than most animes would if they got a third season.
>>
>>160934760
If you think FLCL is random you're a brainlet.
>>
>>160934760
OP, you need a better brain.
>>
>>160934760
Go and watch some shit animes if you don't like FLCL
>>
I will say that the first episode is definitely the weakest. In fact I'd say they're from worst to best in order, though I like episode 5 more than episode 6.
>>
>>160934760
7/10 show, nothing more.
>>
>>160934760
The oav? its not getting much better, but it does get a bit more into everything across the 6 episodes, but lol random is a fairly big part of it.

look at the manga its based off of and fucking hell, its shocking something as good as the oav came out of that dumpster fire.

That said, I still love flcl, but watched it so many times I cant bring myself to do it again.
>>
>>160937969
no, it tells shockingly little, with a bit of a story for each episode that is thin as fuck at best.

You can either roll with it, or you can't, those are the options you have.
>>
>>160943561
>Story is the only thing a show tells
I feel sorry for brainlets
>>
>>160944021
without looking up anything, tell me why the show happened, not the overarching shit that plot which has some modicum of consistency that is explained in the last episode, though poorly, tell me why each episode happened and why it was a thing.

the anime goes out of its way to make a real ending to a manga that was shit, I just looked it up, my mistake, apparently flc had a manga and oav happen concurrently, by the production house, but at least the anime has something going for it unlike the manga. The only place for flcl to go with only the original anime and manga to go on is a completely shit direction, but I haven't read the novels so there may be something good in there that never made it to anime or manga.

oh, and bonus points if you don't use anything that screams 'we looked into this way to deep' as its all bullshit.
>>
>>160944640
Is that even fucking english? Stop expecting other people to spoonfeed you just because you're retarded.
>>
>>160943510
It's not based on the manga. It's the other way around.
>>
>>160948601
yea, after looking it up for the second post, they made an anime that's good but no one can justify the story, they made a manga dumpster fire, and 3 novels at the same time.

And for the record, it wasn't me calling you out that was my reason for not spoon feeding you. It was the me calling you a retard that was the cited reason.

idiot tier opinion: flcl is just pretentious and lolrandum xDDd

dunning kruger idiot tier opinion: FLCL is a multi-layered literary masterpiece. you just don't get it.

enlightened tier opinion: FLCL is good. it's a nice moving coming of age story wrapped up in fun stylistic experiments and dumb comedy

>>160934760
flcl is shit, will be that shit as it started
>>
>>160934760
No you're right it is absolute shit. There's no deeper meaning to it. It's just screeching about boners for 6 episodes.
The only people who like it are Toonami babbys.

>"thin" story

All the mock-space opera sci-fi stuff is pure decoration. Kind of similar to how NGE is really about Shinji, despite how autists on the internet are more concerned about the mythology, the elder races/angels, all that stuff.

FLCL is about the relationships between the characters, and it packs a LOT of character development into those 6 episodes. A lot of it's visual development; the distant shadowy depictions of Naota's brother suggesting their relationship dynamic, how we learn about his American gf through a random photo, the way we're shown (rather than told) that something is slightly "off" in Mamimi's head, the constant visual suggestions of sexual tension, etc. Shittier, longer shows would feed us this information through dull prosaic infodumps.
