Fooly Cooly (FLCL)

Couldn't find the thread that undoubtedly already exists so I have made my own. Feel free to discuss the show and the spin off series Alternative and Progressive too! https://i.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/original/001/097/598/7b3.jpg

I want 20 grams of whatever the writers of this show were smoking
FLCL has 3 parts. Alternative and Progressive are the sequels of the original. Though they are not long they are all equally insane. It's the music that hooks most fans. I personally own the soundtrack. Haruko is more or less the antagonist of each. She's there to challenge the protagonists' world view through a twisted musical based lense. If that made any sense?

And! She's a little perverse with a child! Yippee! Well, preteen-ish. Wasn't it explained the FLC was just a euphemism for sex? Weird show, but great music.
Hey man I watched this when I was in middle school. Either way I do own the album. As for meaning behind the story it was mostly left to interpretation by the viewers. It was created as a pallet cleanser from the studio that worked on Evangelion. A popular theory is that it was the perspective of a kid growing up with depression and neglect. However it devolved into a comedy spectacle with wacky over the top battles against random alien monsters set to rock music! https://ap2hyc.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/FLCL-768x432.png

Yeah... It had things eluding to the awkwardness of puberty, too.. It was all over the place, but good.

Progressive was a little boring but Alternative was decent. The original of course is iconic and it's a fun watch.
@kuharido I agree. Progressive without Flo just isn't the same. Lacked the same level of coverage I needed. Not to mention that the pacing didn't move at a rate I preferred! https://static.wikia.nocookie.net/super-smash-flash-3/images/7/77/Flo_2.jpg https://light-in-the-attic.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/release_image/24849/image/large_550_tmp_2F1570038400971-kity8sopwy-3a99942c15b6bc5b6fb88f19218a46bf_2FFLCL_LP_Cover_RGB300_900px.jpg

I finished watching it. FLCL Alternative was my favourite seasons. It was the least confusing one and it was kinda like a Slice of life which I love
@amir_bahram I can agree to that perspective as you're someone watching the series years after their release. At least you didn't say Progressive which most have agreed had the weakest narrative (parroting themes from the first season) and music soundtrack. Glad you took the time to check it out. We won't agree on Haruko, but she is a character who's very existence is meant to be confrontational. As I said, she is the antagonist.
