August 27, 2017 : New FLCL Teaser Trailer

A few weeks back, a teaser came out for the new seasons of FLCL. It isn’t long, and much like the original show, it is fast paced and tough to decipher on first watch; but it was still great:

The best part of the teaser for me? Without a doubt hearing The Pillows.

The 12-episode revival will get split into two six episode seasons – the first debuting next year (although not sure when in 2018). Below is Adult Swim’s earlier release describing what to expect:

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?

I can’t think of an anime I’m more stoked is coming back with new episodes. Bebop is my favorite anime, but they need to leave well enough alone with that series – it ended masterfully. With FLCL, the door was left open for more. Who thought it would take nearly two decades to finally do something about it?
