FLCL: Ohhh Pirates are birds?


The Facts are These:

Fooly Cooly revolves around a twelve year old named Naota Nadaba and his interaction with Haruko Haruhara a girl who is an investigator for the Galactic Space Police Brotherhood. Haruka plans to use Naota to find the Pirate king, Atomsk. With Commander Amarao of the Bureau of Interstellar Immigration and the Medical Machina out to conquer the galaxy. With Naota in the middle of this feud who will win and how is Naota involved.


This show is one of the most balls to the walls crazy experience of an anime you will ever watch. It is energetic and takes whatever turn it wants in any way be it story, sound or animation, for example the infamous South Park scene. This shows does whatever they want however they want to do it and it results in a fun show to watch and enjoy. Things change in a blink weird stuff happens out of nowhere it is a great watch.



Behind the Scenes:

The series is an original work directed by Kazuya Tsurumaki and written by Kayzuya Tsurumaki and Yoji Enokido. Both have worked together before on Neon Genesis Evangelion. Where Kazuya was the assistant director and protege of anime veteran Hideaki Anno the director and writer of the series. While Yoji was the script writer on Neon Genesis Evangelion and several other show, for example Raxephon, Star Driver and Ouran High School Hosts Club. The series is was produced by the studios Gainax and Production I.G. Gainax’s previous works include Neon Genesis Evangelion (God this is the third time in a paragraph that I have mentioned that show) and Mahoromatic, with Production I.G.’s prominent works being the Ghost in the Shell Franchise and the Blood series. The soundtrack was done by the band The Pillows with several different opening songs and one ending theme so I will talks about the ending song Ride on a Shooting Star by The Pillows. It is a cool song and does not match the energy of this show, but it some how works really well. Here is the ending song…



A Brief View of the World:

The world is similar to out own with the exception of guitars being powerful weapons, Medical Machina trying to take over the world and space pirates, space police brotherhood and interstellar immigration, other than that everything is completely normal… Holy shit everything in this show is not normal. Talking about horns being normal for when boys grow up creatures that appear out of peoples heads.


This show is a blast to watch and it is just a great experience overall. Watch it with friends and they won’t understand what is going on, because not even the show knows what is going on.


This show is incredibly rewatchable with only six episodes you can burn through it easy. It is fun and you want to try and understand it.


7/10 – Its Good
