The one and only FLCL,
This review is from: FLCL Vol 1-3 [DVD] (DVD)The reviewers above have pretty much hit the nail on the head so I can't really expand too much on what has been said and I don't want to spoil anything.
Basically all I will say is just don't come into FLCL expecting anything coherent like any other anime series. It is six episodes of random craziness with a tenuous continuity. The charm of Fooly Cooly is in it's fleetingness, you watch it and draw your own conclusions, it's not meant to be totally 'understood' I don't really think, it just happens and you deal with it from there. Even the two manga books don't expand in any great detail really worth mentioning.
It is just one of those experiences in life where you can tick the box and say, yes I've watched FLCL.
Honestly I think FLCL is a prime example of the Marmite experience, your either going to watch it and kind of 'get it' and love it or hate it and feel conned and wonder why you bothered so really it's on you no matter what we reviewers ultimately say as I think it's clear most of us here loved it.
The only outright downside I can really put is the price, 24.99 for the six episodes of FLCL as I type this review, really in this day age is bordering criminal no matter how much I loved the show, it's not really worth that price, especially when you can get great deals and buy full 26 episode Animes for the same or less on Amazon currently. I will say though Anime fans should see it at least once in there life if at all possible.
