By all the things that you said you'd do.
You're much concerned but not involved by
Decisions that are made by you
But we are sick and tired of hearing your song,
Telling us how you are going to change right from wrong,
'Cause if you really want to hear our views,
You haven't done nothin'.

Call me what you will, I don't like Fooly Cooly. Give me good ol' Bebop or Trigun any day over FLCL. Rurouni Kenshin is pretty good, too. FLCL is confusing and pointless, kind of like Big O. IMHO, anyway.

Fools. I go away for three days and this is what happens.
FlCL, Furi Kuri, or Fooly Cooly, is show about growing up, Gainax style. Its meaning is mutli fold, one being foolishly cool, the other being a Japanese sound effect for breast tweaking.
This is the down side of the television of anime. N00bs who don't get Gainax. Gainax does coming of age anime with many differant takes.

Oh come on, you old stiff. IMAGE(Spiderweb Software Boards What does FLCL mean, anyway_files/tongue.gif) They don't actually show anything. (Although when you think about it, they sorta went out of their way to do so. Shinji's entire groin area is at least six inches below where it should be on a normal human.)

Regardless TM, it's really pushing the boundary of what's acceptable here, nor is it really necessary. Come on now.

There is plenty of Weird anime out there. Like Excel Saga and Jungle wa Itsumo Hare Nochi Guu. I can't stand ES, but I like Guu.

Does it really matter? The difference between Hale and Hare is the difference between Kirara and Kilala.

But yeah, Jungle wa Itsumo Hale Nochi Guu is friggin' hilarious. And it's free, unlicensed and subbed. Go get it.

Somehow the prospect of yuri involving the works of what amounts to a fount of bleakness and despair is not attractive to me.

FCLC... I look at this in a similar light as Seinfeld - it's an anime about nothing. It's the kind of anime no one understands because you're -not- supposed to understand it. Sure, there's some sort of background plot that ties everything together somehow, but that isn't really the point- it isn't meant to be one of these hardcore serious plot revolving animes and that's meant to be watched for a story. FCLC is meant to be watched because it's so weird, so utterly insane it's entertaining.

I loved fooly cooly. It was confusing and not understandable. I like that in a show. It was also funny. The only thing that I hated is I didn't know the names...
