This could be a thread killer, but the series has already run by anyway, right?

Ninamori Eri:

Better with short hair, or long hair?

I vote long hair.

The Mayor's Daughter, who is the center of Episode 3. She's also seen later during Episodes 5 and 6, in the truck with the rest of Naota's classmates.

But I preferred her with shorter hair. Oh well.

FLCL is making another two week run on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim.  It starts off tonight (Oct. 20) at 12:00 AM.  Right after Futurama!

I nearly missed the first episode of FLCL tonight. I really really really wish they had made more episodes of this. I mean, I love it how it is, but there's just something about FLCL that makes me want to have more of it. Is there a serialized manga for it?

There's a FLCL manga available at Borders bookstore, but it looked like it just follows the story that's already there.  I don't know if they will go past the telling of the stuff that's already out there after they finish the original story.  It would be cool if they did though.

I saw FLCL last night.  This will be my third time through the series.  It's amazing how much better that series gets everytime you watch through it.

Never.

This is going to sound odd, but these are the things that FLCL reminds me of.
-the smell of ocean water
-the sun setting on an autumn night
-falling in love
-brisk air in the big city
-meeting someone for the very first time and connecting
-travel

Okay, this was a weird post, and it probably didn't make any sense. I just had to say what was on my mind, in Beat poetry style.

Just saw Episode 2 again for the first time...In english anyway...I've seen it about 10 times in the Japanese version.

I've figured this episode out by the way:

Got to love that rip on "End of Evanglion" segment.  I sure as hell do.

^ Maybe that means Mamini is a psychopath. (see Melllvar's post in an old test thread.)

Pitt, just out of curiousity, how many times have you seen FLCL? Is this your first time, seeing it through the English version?

Oh, and The Pillows, the band thad does the music for FLCL, is really really good. Right up there with Bebop for "Best Anime Music."

/edit -- Is it just me, but do the things that come out of Naota's head remind anyone else of an Eva and an Angel, respectively?

I think "OMGWTF!!!" would've been a much better title for the series.

I really like the soundtrack for this anime, so I bought the vol. 1 soundtrack from CDJapan.  I listen to it all the time.  There are a bunch of Pillows CDs available at CDJapan as well, I'd like to pick one up eventually.  The third FLCL DVD has a video for "Ride On Shooting Star", too.

A bunch.  I discovered it early in 2003, and I'd seen the whole thing before college got out.  I was watching it like mad, because I wanted to catch every little detail.  (Believe me there are alot).  Check out the sequence in the fourth episode when Naota comes back home late at night, look at all the heads that pop up out of nowhere.  Creepy.

Crazy sunshine, Beautiful morning with you, One life, I think I can.

Oh my, YES!  I hope futurama fans all over the states are staying tuned in for this work of animated and rock-and-roll brilliance.

The fight between Red-Canti and the Robot hand in ep. 1 is quite clearly taken from the climactic scene in End of Evangelion: Air, in which Asuka rips apart the Eva series while Bach's "Air on the G-string" plays in the background.

I need to get Vols. 2 and 3 for FLCL. Unfortunately I gotta pay off my monitor with the credit card before I can use it for anything else.

In the origonal Japanese it was even more of a rip of End of Eva, Anno (the guy behind Eva) plays the voice of the cat who has a line at the end of the segment.

If I broke up with a girl, and found out that she missed me so much she became an arsonist, to fill the void.  I don't know how I'd feel.


Maybe creeped out to the very max, but yeah, at least a little flattered.

Edit: Props to the dub.  Ninamori was WAY more spoiled rotten in the english, and I liked it.

Wow, Evan, that's a good question.  I'd never even considered that possibility.

To change the subject completely; I have a question about episode three.  When Ninamori sleeps over at Naota's house, where exactly does she sleep?  I mean, Haruko was sleeping in the top bunk, right?  So did Ninamori and Naota sleep in the same bed together, or what?
