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.!

In the new season of FLCL, many years have passed since Naota and Haruhara Haruko shared their adventure together. Meanwhile, the war between the two entities known as Medical Mechanica and Fraternity rages across the galaxy. Enter Hidomi, a young teenaged girl who believes there is nothing amazing to expect from her average life, until one day when a new teacher named Haruko arrives at her school. Soon enough, Medical Mechanica is attacking her town and Hidomi discovers a secret within her that could save everyone, a secret that only Haruko can unlock.

But why did Haruko return to Earth? What happened to her Rickenbacker 4001 she left with Naota? And where did the human-type robot ‘Canti’ go?

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?

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?!
