Synopsis

Cocona, a cautious middle school girl, encounters an eccentric and headstrong girl named Papika. Together, they end up traveling to strange worlds known as Pure Illusion, where they must retrieve mysterious, amorphous fragments said to grant wishes. As Cocona and Papika gather these fragments for the Flip Flap organization, they come up against Cocona's childhood friend Yayaka, who is seeking the fragments for Flip Flap's rival, Asclepius, allegedly bent on world conquest. As both organizations collide, Cocona learns more about the world than she thought possible.

To be honest Flip Flappers should-be more popular. I felt that it had all the material needed to engage with audiences regardless of their preferences, and most importantly sell great merchandise. The only thing that stopped me from giving the incredible piece of art a solid 10 was the strange and often times confusing story; which I'll get into in a moment so please keep sitting in your chair, or levitating above, you wizards.

So what is Flip Flappers about? Why should you be watching it? Can you eat it? Only two of the three questions above will be answered.

Flip Flappers is the textbook definition of a hidden gem. A short, artistic original anime by a relatively unknown studio, and also an anime which is quite difficult to explain. This is partially because of its symbolic themes, but also because the execution itself is very unorthodox. It is like the anime equivalent of an LSD trip; something I can only describe as a crossover of FLCL and Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita. But somehow, Studio 3Hz actually made it work, resulting in what I would probably have to consider my favorite anime of Fall 2016.

The story follows two girls who meet each other by coincidence: read more

This one hell of a trippy dimension-jumping anime!

It's beautiful, imaginative, action-packed, and mysterious~
diverse, unique, immersive, and, most importantly, it's (*cough*cough* mostly *cough*) coherent!

Flip Flappers will take you on a relatively unpredictable journey with two middle school girls named Papika and Cocona as they travel to another dimension called "Pure Illusion". The story begins mysteriously as it follows the warm and simple-minded Papika as she escapes from what looks like a lab and flies off into the night sky on her hoverboard. It then switches to the perspective of the visibly depressed or kuudere Cocona and briefly gives insight into her struggles to figure who she read more

Originality is not an easy thing to accomplish. The sheer amount of content out there at our disposal makes it immensely difficult to stand out. You can either attempt to create something completely new, or you can try to do something different with what’s already there. A fresh perspective can go a long way, breathing life into a tried concept or even gaining a new audience altogether.

Flip Flappers doesn’t really try to be anything new, and it doesn’t have to. The story follows two middle school girls as they embark in wonderful journeys in a different reality known as Pure read more
