If you haven't heard of 'FLCL' (aka Fooly Cooly), you're so missing out on a super fun and oddly colorful anime experience. You may remember the original six-episode series on Adult Swim back in the early 2000's, which, like most anime, has garnered a significant cult following. It was also accompanied by a novel and a manga (comic/graphic novel), just adding to its popularity and desire for more. The second season, aptly named 'FLCL Progressive,' came back to Adult Swim 15 years after season one aired, followed by 'FLCL Alternative' that same year. A total of 12 episodes rounded out the final two seasons and now, they have been put together in one set for your viewing pleasure and it is not just the two discs you will love; there is so much more to the collection.
As always, with Blu-ray, there are special features and this is my favorite part of getting discs over streaming. The special little nuggets diehard fans will go crazy for and there's not a shortage here. Inside you get the chance to meet the creators so the people who brought your fave 'FLCL' characters to life; a BTS look at the making of the final two seasons; BTS of the production for the series; and the voices for the English actors. We often wonder who they are and how they translate these characters so well that they span the continents and create such a connection. Now, you can find out. And, both Japanese and English audio are included to get the full impact!
