    C&C - FLCL - Series Talkback

    Like This Thread!

    I didn't see one put up yet, so I decided to. It's the Toonami premiere after all, and a little past the tenth anniversary of its first American airing.

    Episode 1: Fooly Cooly
    Naota's ordinary life is interrupted when Haruka hits him on the head with her guitar. Crazy s*** happens.

    Stephanie Sheh as Mamimi, playing a girl who kept showing her panties before moving on to big breasts on Bleach.

    Bullet time!

    And Steven Blum in a minor role.

    MANGA SCENE!

    Keep in mind folks... Naota is voiced by Rita Replusa.

    And here's Lucca talking to a cat. So meta.

    So Haruko plays bass, it looks like.

    So who "never knows best" anyway?

    First Mamimi panty shot.

    "NO. I MuSTre-spect his BROther's privacy!"

    And Kari Whalgren is channeling Capt. Kirk here.

    Nothing happens here.

    Only in Japan a giant robot and a violent alien is considered normal.

    And TV Boy is part of the family.

    Ride on Shooting Star!

    And Haruka talks about the many incarnations of Game Boy, long before 3DS hit the scene.

    Since this is coming directly off the heels of Sword Art Online, I can't help but think that Haruko would break that game in two if she was ever a player.

    ...Yeah, still one of my favorites of all time. It's easy to latch onto the animation, which is indeed unique and impressive, but I also just love the atmosphere of the whole thing. I dare say the story's more told by the mood of the more dramatic moments than the actual dialogue. Speaking of which, I love how the dialogue has this surreal, almost dreamlike quality to it.

    I'm not really sure how to describe what I just saw. I knew a bit about this series going in and heard how strange it was, but this might be too bizarre and surreal for my tastes. It's clearly trying to be wacky and all over the place with its humor and animation, which does at least make the art style stand out, but I was mostly confused and relieved when the commercial break came. That's not really a good sign, especially for a first episode. I might give it another episode to see if it is more appealing, but I might just decided to go to sleep a bit earlier instead of trying to watch the rest of the series. That does sound rather tempting right now.

    I just wanna say that this show's really better on repeat viewings, as the gags and intensity can be really overwhelming on a first viewing. Episode 2 is a bit better in that regard, though episodes 4 & 5 are particularly crazy and often uncomfortable. And this is coming from a big fan of the series.

    That would make sense. I think one reason why I was relieved when the commercial break came on was because the gags were just overwhelming me since it felt like that there was too much going on all at once. I can like bizarre humor, but it's usually better if it's more evened out and put in small doses, rather than twenty some minutes of nothing but bizarre gags that make it difficult to get into the show when I'm just starring at the screen and constantly asking myself "What the heck is going on?" I might give the second episode a bit more of a chance, but the idea of just going to sleep until they put another show on this slot still sounds tempting.

    Well it is obvuois whoever wrote this was high on something. The girls from Eureka Seven, though kind of role reversal, this time Kari Wahlgren is the alien, while Stephanie Sheh is the earthling, though Kari is still the crazy one.

    I love Haruka, she defenetely makes my list, Anemone is still number one for now, but Haruka might past Charmcaster for number two, and creeping it as number one. While Anemone is one kind of crazy, Haruka is a whole other type of crazy.

    It is nice to see Stephanie voice a character with a deep voice, I don't see too many of those, most of the Stephanie characters I know has a higher pitch voice, and I have heard talk in interviews and commentaries, Mamimi that is her real voice. Haruka is crazy, but Mamimi she has issues, not very real adjusted. Naota has some crazy women in his life, not to mention his family is crazy, his dad reminds me of Isshin Kurosaki.

    The second episode takes a step back from the rapid pace a bit. It's not as confusing or has as many eyeball kicks, though it still energetic. And it does make sense as the series goes on - even the robots coming out of Not-Rita Repulsa's forehead.

    The context of FLCL is that the originally this was released as an OVA - each episode was released (back then) in single DVD's. Gainax, I suppose, was trying to create a massive first impression to get attention. That way, the anime could begin with telling the actual tale.

    (Where was this talkback last night?!)

    Those of you who liked Anemone in Eureka Seven will LOVE Haruko. You know, same voice actress and all.
    This show will certainly give you a general idea of Kari Wahlgren's vocal range.

    "STAY RIGHT THERE!! I'M GONNA MAKE YOU FEEL ALL BETTER!" is my favorite part of the episode.

    And since its new licensors at Funimation have uploaded the subbed episodes to YouTube, I thought I'd translate the Japanese text for you all since Adult Swim never thought to.

    Below red X on screen during slow motion sequence: It's wrong.
    "Vespa" definition flashed on screen: Ves-pa 1. wasp, hornet
    Sign outside hospital: MM Branch Hospital: Brain Surgery, Respiratory Medicine, Internal Medicine, Neurology
    Lettering on hospital following Nurse Haruko's rampage: Medical Mechanica Branch Hospital
    Naota's shop sign: Shikeguni Bread
    Sign on window before manga scene: Due to circumstances, closed for the time being. -Management
    Manga scene dialogue: Come on, do you really need me for that?
    Writing on postcard when we find out Naota's brother has an American girlfriend: I got me a blonde gal!
    Sign on window in final scene: Store reopened as of today. -Management
    End credits: Sorry, you're on your own

    She certainly wouldn't take TWO YEARS to beat it because of COMPLACENCY.

    Yeah I know, as big of fan I am or her, vocal range is not something I think of when I think of her talent, just like Johnny Yong Bosch, I love him, but vocal range is not his forte either, how he is the voice of Renton in the original series is still unbeliveable, Which is okay, a lot of great voice actors can get by with just a certain voice type.

    But yeah, if I wasn't told Haruko was Kari, I wouldn't know.

    Haruko is crazy, you know she reminds of Mashiro from Bleach. If those two ever meet, OMG the world couldn't survive that.

    Episode 1 was pretty sweet/bizarre/hilarious,

    The highlights:
    Both Naota/Mamimi are the best cutest couple ever after Kenshin/Kaoru, Naruto/Hinata, Renton/Eureka, Ichigo/Orihime, and Kirito/Asuna(their relationship rocks).
    I love Haruko who's cute/awesome/wacky/hilarious with all of her best epic scenes, hahahahahaha, she looks like a taller Sakura Haruno who's more epic and reminds me of Haruhi Suzumiya/Rebecca(Becky),Ichijo,and Himeko(Pani Poni Dash!)/Lucy,Erza,and Juvia(Fairy Tail) among cool wacky hilarious female characters.
    Haruko running over poor Naota with her Vespa scooter was hilarious.
    The 4th wall breaking scene with Naota/Mamimi/Haruko watching was priceless.
    The large horn-like bump on Naota's head was so bizarre/weird.
    Junko the crazy eccentric female teacher is so hilarious.
    Gaku & Masashi were funny which they're like Keigo, hehehe.
    Eri Ninamori is also cute/awesome.
    Haruko the nurse scaring Naota, hahahahahaha.
    The whole manga-like scenes with Naota/Haruko/Kamon/Shigekuni while mentioning "fooly cooly" was random/wacky/hilarious, hahahahaha, with Haruko enjoying the craziness, even Naota's family are just as crazy as Mamimi/Haruko, hahahahaha.
    Kamon is another great hilarious idiot dad next to Isshin, Spirit(Maka's dad), and Sojiro(Konata's dad from Lucky Star), hahahahaha.
    Haruko as Naota's live-in maid, sweet/funny.
    Poor Mamimi is poor, how sad.
    The scene with Naota/Mamimi at the bridge was SO CUTE.
    Mamimi likes Tasuka(Naota's older brother), interesting.
    A TV-headed robot/giant detached piece of a giant robot coming out of poor Naota's head was so weird/bizarre.
    The TV-headed robot is so awesome.
    Haruko crushing the detached piece of a giant robot was awesome, she can use her bass guitar as a weapon, cool.
    The TV-headed robot joins Naota's crazy family, sweet.
    Both Haruko/Mamimi/Eri Ninamori are epic likable female characters more better than the horrible unlikable female characters Iris(Pokemon Black & White)/Sakura & Ino/Aquarius/Tokine.

    FLCL
    is was one of my top favorite epic wacky funny bizarre series ever while Haruko brings out the comedy as well, hehehe, I do love this Toonami having Tenchi Muyo! GXP/Cowboy Bebop/IGPX/One Piece/Samurai 7/Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood/Bleach/Soul Eater/Deadman Wonderland/Casshern Sins and now FLCL, epic, welcome to Toonami FLCL!!!!!
    Barbara "Rita Repulsa" Goodson as Naota was fantastic, Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers actors voicing anime characters is sweet.
    Kari Wahlgren was funny/awesome as Haruko as much as I loved her other sweet roles as Luca(IGPX), Arisa(Stellvia of the Universe), Lavie(Last Exile), Anemone(I love her next to Haruko, she rocks), Saya/Diva(Blood+), and Kagami(Lucky Star), go Kari!!!!!
    Stephanie Sheh was amazing as Mamimi next to Hinata/Eureka/Orihime/Akira(Lucky Star,her psychotic voice rocks)/Kinon(Gurren Lagann), I do enjoy both Steven Blum/Derek Prince/Johnny Bosch/Kari Wahlgren/Stephanie Sheh/Monica Rial's epic voice acting roles in the world of anime.

    I'm still surprised that Mamimi is voiced by Sheh. Seriously, after ten years, and I never knew that until recently.

    Episode 2: Firestarter
    Fires are being started (hence the title) in town, but by whom? Could a video game be responsible?

    Guess the dub was made before American Idol.

    You should hear some of Stephanie's previous roles she did for Funimation. I didn't even know that was her voice when I watched a bit of Strike Witches (she plays Gertrud Barkhorn in that series).

    Either that's Naota's X-ray or that of a Sword Art Online episode writer.

    I'm not telling you what HARUKO's nametag says.
