Adult swim along with anime studio Production I.G. will produce season’s 2 and 3 of Fooly Cooly (FLCL). The two new seasons will feature 6 episodes each. For those who may not know, FLCL is about:
FLCL is a coming of age story and revolves around Naota Nandaba, a 12-year-old, working class boy living with his widowed father and grandfather. His life in the city of Mabase is interrupted by the arrival of Haruko Haruhara, who runs over Naota with her yellow Vespa 180 SS scooter, gives him CPR, then hits him on the head with a blue vintage Rickenbacker 4001 left-handed electric bass guitar. Naota discovers that the blow to his head created an “N.O.” portal, from which giant robots produced by a company known as Medical Mechanica emerge periodically.
Naota later finds Haruko working in his house as a live-in maid. It is later discovered that Haruko is an investigator for the Galactic Space Police Brotherhood. Haruko uses Naota for her search for the Pirate King, Atomsk. She is at odds with Medical Mechanica, a monolithic industrial corporation. Naota is being watched by Commander Amarao, a special agent of the Bureau of Interstellar Immigration, who believes that Medical Mechanica is out to conquer the galaxy. Naota is ultimately drawn into a three-way battle between Haruko, Amarao and Medical Mechanica. – Wikipedia
If the strange, but fun story and the animation are of equal or better quality to the original series, I’m all in. Let’s hope FLCL doesn’t get the DBZ (Super) treatment. Anyway, for more info on the original series and the new announcement check the links below:
