Hidomi Hibajiri is a dissilusioned young girl who never takes off her headphones. Her whole life consists of going to school, helping out at her mother's cafe, and listening to music. And with nothing else to break the crippling monotony, she keeps her headphones on at all times. That is, until she is run over by a mysterious guitar-wielding woman.

That same night, a robot barges into Hidomi’s room along with a boy from her class, Ko Ide, and the kids are chased around town together. They're saved by the guitar-wielding woman from before, but now Hidomi's got a horn growing from her forehead? Who knows where these robots are coming from, what kind of vespa woman this weird guitar woman is warning her about, or what this thing on her forehead is, but it doesn't look like Hidomi is going to be able to ignore all this with headphones!

Hi everybody, how are you?
Here is the most seriously ridiculous and ridiculously serious franchise I have ever seen.
To be brief, both this and the prequel touches on the subject of change and acceptance of it in adolescence, both in a way more related to puberty itself (as the original did) and the search for meaning and identity.
All this with a huge super over the top background subplot that has little to do with anything; and the continuation of Haruko's adventures to be with Atomsk.
It's basically the same old trusty FLCL with a fresher, more up-to-date style but with that message of wild youth, punk ...

Mixed Feelings
for a show naming itself 'progressive' after the rock genre of the same name, this show does shockingly little to progress the format of flcl past what it was in its original run. in fact, them even introducing a formula at ALL is a fundamental misunderstanding of flcl as a whole.

in japan it was even called flcl 2, but to reiterate i feel like they don't understand that the concept of not really having a story structure is what flcl is about. it just ends up feeling generic whenever the new characters (minus jinyu) are on screen and even the mecha fights felt uninteresting/uninspired at ...

This was a disappointment. Just finished my first rewatch after almost 3 years of first watching it and I didn't like it then and I don't like it now. The original FLCL was really just lightning in a bottle and they failed to capture it again. It feels like they go to the point of making fun of the fans of the original with how absurd the made Haruko, now don't get me wrong she was always crazy but they made her into some sort of cheap imitation of what they think Haruko is. The rest is also in the end just a copy of ...
