    August 4th, 2003.

    Adult Swim premieres a quirky little six-episode coming-of-age OVA series of giant robot fights, Western pop culture references, a memorable J-rock soundtrack, and an erratic, ever-changing animation style.

    Who would have guessed on that day fifteen years ago that they would be greenlighting two new seasons of it.

    Certainly not me. Certainly not any of us. And I'm willing to guess not the network either.

    The premiere of the first of these two new series, FLCL Progressive, debuts tonight.

    FLCL Progressive
    Episode 1 - "Re: Start"

    Medical Mechanica attacks Hidomi's town, and she discovers a secret within her that could save everyone, a secret that only the new teacher Haruko can unlock.

    Tonight, Kari Wahlgren's voice acting career comes full circle.

    I'm hoping it's gonna be good, but I'm not expecting much. I don't think the original FLCL holds up all that well. There's some decent stuff here and there, but it's kind of a mess, IMO. And I really couldn't stand Haruko. So, her returning doesn't fill me up with that much excitement.

    It's a very cult ova, that became trendy with hipster culture over time.

    The biggest event of the year outside of Infinity War is upon us.

    You've seen the classic OVA. Now, after much anticipation, at midnight it's time for FLCL: Progressive, the first of two original sequels born of collaboration between Adult Swim and Production I.G.!

    At long last, after fifteen years we get the anime sequel we all sort of wanted.

    And since this is FLCL Progressive, here's some prog rock for ya.

    Tune up the guitar and gas up the Vespa.

    Well, this is off to a cheery start.

    Uhh, you dropped your...hand...

    Uh, sweetie, you're kinda...falling apart there.

    So is this one of those things where they show us the end of the series at the start of it?

    Yes, say "good morning" or I'll cut you.

    That's her...mother?

    Anyone else reminded just a bit of Saitama’s “finally, a challenge!” Dream from One Punch Man there? Kind of the same impact there (though hers is not as triumphant, obviously)

    Naota's sure grown up.

    Equal opportunity fan service.

    Just because guys are wearing skirts now doesn't mean all of them should.

    I like the hot mom with the butcher knife who makes delicious food. Can she be my mom? I'll say "Good morning."

    Guys wearing skirts? Uh, in Scotland, maybe.

    And hey, I thought Japanese students had to wear uniforms.

    She makes her students watch porn? Why couldn't I have had this class in high school?!

    I guess this show won't have a title sequence either.
