Flcl Alternative: Episode 6
The conundrum hanging over both Flcl sequel series was what, indeed, could define a Flcl sequel? How do you extend a series characterized by a fleeting and unpredictable uniqueness? What makes Flcl Flcl? Is it about robots coming out of kids’ heads? Is it about Haruko trying to get with a giant bird (it’s not)? Is it more just about a feeling, or a style, or is it, like, a thematic thing… or something?
Progressive and Alternative attempted to solve this conundrum by doing a bit of everything. Haruko was all over each season (a choice I still question for both series) and robots still came out of kids’ heads. However, both also told new stories that veered massively away from the events of FLCLassic.
