Seemingly unconnected citizens of Tokyo are targeted for bludgeoning by a boy with a golden baseball bat. As detectives try to link the victims, they discover that following the assaults, the victims' lives have improved in some way.
Naota is a normal student living with his abnormal father and grandfather. One day, a seemingly insane girl named Haruko blazes in from out of nowhere on her Vespa, wielding an electric guitar with a buzzsaw! Haruko moves in with Naota under the pretense of being a housekeeper, but Naota knows there's something obviously strange about her. To make matters worse, large shapes are growing out of his head, hatching into large monsters that Haruko makes her mission to kill. Who is Haruko really, and what is she after? You won't find out until the end of this bizarre story.Written by

I stayed up late one night when my friend told me to "Change the channel to Cartoon Network, FLCL is on". I asked him what it was and he told me it was an anime show. I told him to die, but then he said that "You'll like it"...FINE.
Episode Four: Full Swing. An epic. from the opening to the closing of this slightly sexually over-toned episode to the end, I was GLUED to the television. For 30 minutes, moans and screams and...jeez. It was what I imagine an acid trip would be. I love it.
3 days later I had my money ready to buy all three dvds, which was gonna set me back ninety dollars. Psh. 2 episodes a DVD. So why is it worth only 89.99 of that ninety? The booklet and subtitles. The subtitles are the LITERAL translations from Japanese, while the actual dubbing is superb and fits well in overall. It would have been nice though to have the captions from what I was really hearing. The booklets are kinda hit and miss because they made a mistake in the first one and "made up" for it in the second one spending over 3 pages with some boring talking about stuff that people in general just don't care about.
I digress. Buy it. Love it. Pick up the Cd's too. The music is superb and is a great influence for rock and roll bands.
