the art is strange, and the anime have some problems, especially on the first episode the constrution and the way the things happen dont make much sense, but not like the nosense of the original flcl,the things just dont work, but ep 2 and 3 are really good, i think thats not really bad or good, but its underrated, the points of view are really nice, the ost (the pillows never fail) and caracters are good too

i wish that FLCL shoegaze can be FLCL in a better way
