Synopses & Reviews
Naota goes from high school nothing to mutant warrior in the blink of any eye. But what does it all mean? The town stirs with gossip when the Mayor's adulterous affair makes headlines. But his daughter, Ninamori, the class president and Naota's friend, is having a hard time of it. So hard, in fact, that she turns into a giant balloon to challenge Naota in battle. And Haruko is closing in on the interplanetary foes she was dispatched to dispatch. And is there any saving Mamimi from he downwardly spiraling descent into madness. Plunge deeper into the dreamscape with "FLCL" Volume 2.
From the mind of Hideaki Anno (Evangelion) comes this bizarre tale of adolescence in a world that hardly makes sense. Naota's life isn't simple. He lives with his eccentric father and grandfather in a city marked by a gigantic hand-iron shaped factory perched on a hill. So the last thing he needs is for his brother's ex-girlfriend to make passes at him or for an impish, playful alien to smack him in the head with a bass guitar and then insinuate herself into his family.
FLCL (pronounced Fooly Cooly) was published in graphic novel form in 2000 by Kodansha in Japan. There was also a hit FLCL anime series from Gainax and Hideaki Anno (creators of Neon Genesis Evangelion).
