    i'm not really getting this series...it's so freakin' random, hard to grasp (if there is anything to grasp) and nothing seems to be making sense. yet i continue watching it for something i can't explain.

    i like the songs though. :big grin:

    okay, i just watched all 6 episodes and it seems like this anime is like what seinfeld is to sitcoms. a show about nothing but making fun of other shows of its genre.

    edit: googling through different interpretations and it's supposed to show Naota's transformation from child to manhood? wtf? i gotta watch this shit again.

    That might be the best description of FLCL I've ever seen. Haruhi might be the only show I've seen that's more random. :o

    There really is a whole lot of stuff buried under all the seemingly random nonsense.

    To extend the FLCL is like seinfeld comment:

    In terms of movies FLCL is, for me, like Donnie Darko. You watch it for the first time, understand nothing, and at the end you say WTF?

    Only after watching it in its entirety 2 or more times plus reading about it on the internet are you able to understand the substory, buried so deeply that it confounds the large majority of viewers.
