Ordinarily it takes me a little while to learn everybody's names when I'm watching an anime for the first time, especially if it's one with a huge cast like Bleach or Naruto or My Hero Academia. So let me see if I've got these names down...

The ditzy girl who had the flower coming out of her forehead was named Kana...

The one with the Chie Satonaka jacket and the Peppermint Patty fringe had a weird name...Pets, was it? Is that a nickname?

The one with the interest in engineering and--I'm trying to be as polite as I can here--the low metabolism was named Mossan...

Hijiri was easy, she's the designated "pretty one"...

And as for the one with the guitar...

Ummm...crap, I've forgotten...ohh, I heard it last week...it was...

Uggh.

Oh well, I'm sure we'll see her again.


FLCL Alternative
Episode 2 - "Grown-Up Wannabe"

Kana and her besties witness Hijiri kissing a college student, Toshio, inside his car. Acting more mature than any of her classmates, Hijiri suggests Kana and her besties do a photo shoot with Toshio.

So the boy's name is Toshio?

(FYI, in case you missed them, they showed music videos last week for the themes from Alternative and Progressive.)

Correct.
The one with the Chie Satonaka jacket and the Peppermint Patty fringe had a weird name...Pets, was it? Is that a nickname?
Yes, it's a nickname. Her full name is Tomomi Hetada.
The one with the interest in engineering and--I'm trying to be as polite as I can here--the low metabolism was named Mossan...
Also a nickname. Her full name is Man Matoyama.
Hijiri was easy, she's the designated "pretty one"...
Not a nickname.
And as for the one with the guitar...

Uggh.

Amarao calls her Haruha Raharu.

It's not known whether that's her real name or conjecture used by Amarao and Jinyu in the show. Also, her hair color in Alternative also seems to imply she fused back with Jinyu and is listed as Haruhara Haruko in the castlists.

It was a poor attempt at a joke. My bad.

Previously on FLCL: Girls just wanna have fun. And...not be attacked by robots and have an alien pull things out of their heads.

And here's another alternative rock song from the band Built to Spill
