Kinda wierd how Eh people are about this, a Anime Studio is working with a Western TV Network, whatever you wanna call Toonami , to make a sequel to an Anime, that is unheard of apart from the Netflix thing done like a month ago. Pretty important shit. The fact that its FLCL too is incredible im so excited about this.

Must check this out. Started but never finished the series though it was kinda weird it was also quirky and fun. Hope main character is as awesome as Naota.

If IMAISHI is not directing it, it's going to be absolute shit.

Even if he was, the idea of replacing Naota with a high school girl is the worst idea ever. I hate it when shows do this.

This is pretty great, hope the Americans don't screw it up. More collaborations are needed.

Tsurumaki directed it, should've stayed that way.
Don't bother if you don't know how special effects were done without computers.

YEEEEAAAHH!!!

0K, jokes aside, I'll hope that it'll be the same situation as with Gunbuster, where sequel comes years later and oh dear Lord how much more better it was.

Just don't bring The Pillows back. Seriously, it wasn't just unfitting - it was cringeworthy unfitting, almost on ruining everything level.

0h, and since you're having two girls, one of whom is teenager, instead of a boy and a girl - how about some slight beautiful shoujo-ai undertones?

Imaishi is just one of the key animators of the original FLCL anime, Imaishi never directed that FLCL

Really, why does this exist? The original FLCL was great and doesn't need to be milked anymore. And in terms of reboots Production I.G should just be working on the reanimation of Legend of the Galactic Heroes and making sure it's fucking awesome.

Not really promising for me tbh. This series doesn't need a sequel because it knew when to actually end. So there's no need for one.

Idk how to feel about this honestly. I mean, FLCL was good as it was but eh....

At least it's by one of my favorite studios, Production I.G. Quite a surprise though.

I'll watch it regardless, but I hope it turns out decent. I just hope it somehow captures the charm and quirkiness of the original.

I'm super excited for this, considering they have the creator and the Pillows returning. FLCL is a classic and one of my favorite animes ever. Production IG is a top notch studio, but I wonder if they can recreate that toony, liberal style that gainax put into the original.

Very happy, but I'm also scared it might flop.

The original OVA was just good as it is and I don't think it necessarily need more season. But since this is FLCL, I still eagerly looking forward to see it, and the premise sounds quite interesting for me, lets see how this one will turn out to be. I wonder if Naota will make an appearance and meet with Haruko back in this new season. And I hope the soundtrack will as good as the Pillow though, or make the Pillow to do it again. Whether it would be a good or flop, I am going to watch it through the end regardless.

I couldn't agree more.

I will still watch this new FLCL nevertheless, unless they make it radically different than the original, which would probably make me puke onto my monitor.

+1 are The Pillows back into this?

Don't you worry, it's just your nostalgia talking. You'll get over it when you grow up.
The Pillows are good band, Thank you, my twilight, for example, is a brilliant masterpiece, but still.

While I'm skeptical and FLCL certainly didn't need a sequel, I'm fucking excited. They plan to bring the Pillows back and key members of the staff are returning! It's going to be a long wait.

^ This, I really don't know how to feel about this. FLCL does not by any means need a sequel at all. I am very nervous how this 'adaption' will turn out, but I'm excited at the same time because I loved the original, but this is SO UNEXPECTED. Crossing my fingers they don't royally screw it up, they have pretty big expectations to meet.

I loved the original (obviously given my avatar) but I hate how many shows and movies (not just anime) are coming back for more. If they can deliver than by all means go for it but it comes at somewhat compromising the fanhood. I don't want to look back and say "ugh, I wish they just would've left it alone." The original season will always be great no matter what but it will have a blemish to go along with it. How often do things go on hiatus for this long and come back good? I have mixed feelings about this hopefully it delivers because more GOOD FLCL is good for everyone. Long live Hideaki Anno the cat!

There was no need to really have anymore seasons. I mean the first one was perfect imo, but if they think they can pull it off more power to them.

Why?

Come on now, it was not popular in Japan where the sales matter.


There are more anime being made now that seem to cater to the western market. Which is smarter in the opinion since theres more money to be made that way.

Mixed feelings. 1 FLCL is one of my favorite things in the world, hype for more. 2. the original was perfect and didn't need to continue, i've been hurt before.

I dunno. For me FLCL is a sacred piece of my childhood. I think i have to watch it, but I don't want to hate it.

There are "Perfect Bones" anime later. It's produced by NETFLIX and also Production I.G.

By the way I heard news that The Pillows and the original cast will come back for this sequels. Also Tsurumaki and Sadamoto (GAINAX Co-Founder) on board. Now I'm a little bit optimistic.

Unnecessary. Don't get me wrong, I like FLCL a lot. But I can't stand it when a show, which ended pefectly fine, gets an unnecessary new season just for the sake of nostalgia. And the fact that barely anyone from the original staff is involved doesn't make shit look any better.
Eh, will obviously watch it, but I'll also remain very skeptical.

Hoooboy. When even the synopsis outright Misses the point of the show already you know it will be a trainwreck...

There are a lot of old shows that could have new stories to be told.
FLCL had a very fitting and final ending. It is not one of those shows.

I have to agree with all of this. Oh, well. I'm still a little optimistic as the key staff and musicians are there. And the studio doing it is a good one.

Production I.G. worked on FLCL, EoE and NGE: D&R, amongst other things. They're not exactly n00bz at animating stuff, and they're kinda used to Gainax's style too.
