    FLCL (otherwise known as Fooly Cooly or Furi Kuri) has turned into quite a cult classic anime since it was first released in 2000. Fans of the show, myself included, love the art style, the zany and whacky animation, the nostalgic soundtrack, and the incomprehensible plot. It is difficult to explain just because of how nonsensical it seems -- with all its jokes and sexual innuendo -- but it is actually a show full of metaphors and symbolism.

    Around midnight, Grin contacted me on Skype and sent me some news. Just a few hours ago, 13 years after it aired on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim for the first time, Toonami and Adult Swim have announced a co-production with anime studio Production I.G. for 12 new episodes of FLCL that will be divided into two seasons. Production I.G. was involved in the production of the original six-episode OVA as well.

    Let's wait to see whether this is not just a huge April Fools set up. I'm pretty fucking stoked, though. Here's to hoping the Pillows come back for the soundtrack.

    One of my favourite scenes from the show and a piece of soundtrack:

    I guess it's not a secret you'd be excited when you have that Mamimi avatar, lol. I'm just sad it's not the third season of Haruhi. I'll enjoy this as well.

    And I guess it's not a surprise you'd be the only person to reply to this thread.

    I'm pretty excited to see how this turns out!
    It'd be pathetic if they were playing an April Fools joke with a cult classic, so hopefully this is legit. Either way, they'll be able to see how interested people still are in the show.
    as if anyone actually comes to this subforum ;( lol

    Well this post slipped past me entirely. March is over, April 1st came, April is over, May is over. It wasn't an April Fools joke after all! Now to wait two years.

    Sigh. This could be such a good subforum, you know.

    FLCL made me a fan of the pillow, hopefully the soundtrack of the new seasons are as good as the first one.
