Synopsis: While the two six-episode installments were previously slated for late 2017 to early 2018, the staff announced at the panel that they are both slated for 2018 with a break in the middle. The two seasons will have completely separate stories. The staff previously announced that the 12 episodes will be a sequel to the 2000-2001 original video anime.

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?

There won't be a sequel to FLCL and a remake would be kinda pointless. A lot of FLCL seemed to be playing around with random ideas and various drawing styles. There a bunch of different styles in just those 6 episodes so a remake I think would be kinda pointless. It's animation is part of what makes it unique.

finally after 17 years like DBS, but dubbed first as CN did with Space Dandy -_-

It'll get most of us rewatching the original at least... and wondering if the new production team has anything as nearly creative up their sleeves.... which is the hard thing to do when doing a project like this... you are competing against the expectations of the original... after a rewatch, we should consider if it was as good as we thought it was... before criticizing this continued storyline or parallel one or whatever?

also i find interesting it's aired first on Adult·swim, being more popular in US... as Big·0 was, ep.3 will be dubbed tomorrow but I'll wait for subs like Alter#1 :)

Yeah, I usually watch anime over there... they added so many popups lately that it's rather tedious.... <_< Ah, the troubles we face to watch some anime... could go with one of the pay sites, but last time I checked they don't have older stuff or certain other stuff... so you are stuck doing the same thing half the time... 

 

Is this one done yet? How is it compared to the original?

Just finished FLCL Progressive, after first watching the original anime again... which is definitely unique.... this sequel sort of picks up years later, the kid is gone and unexplained, so a new story that is pretty good, just not as good, which is what the comments I read said.... so they were right... but still fun to watch... but after rewatching the original first, the difference really sticks out. Progressive is sort of 'watered-down'.... is it  a different city? perhaps so, as this is supposed to be happening all over, right? Not that it matters.... like the end song... well the music more than the vocals. It wasn't as weirdly wonderful/crazy as the first... though I read some comments that said Alternative is better?

:/ in that case I'm glad to still wait instead of watching both dubbed, because I was kinda disappointed at trying ep'1... comparing S1 of course! just 2 eps left in Alternative, so hopefully they release them all subbed right after it ends <_<

I watched/rewatched both in dub form.... no problem with it.... waiting on the next, "Alternative".... I think Progressive was setup well with the girl and all, but too many others got in the way, unlike the original... just that kid for the most part.. the others were mostly background... except his brothers old 'girlfriend'? who became trouble at the end.. and went off to become a photographer... why didn't they use one of them in this new series? Oh well...

 

The girl in Progressive was setup well I thought, but after all the others got in the way, she became background for the most part.... like all the rest.... ALL of them, including our Vespa driver from the original... I didn't like the whole concept of this.... good elements here and there but too much attention paid to each character.. ok in general, but it detracts from the main storyline... which kept expanding in scope to include the whole damn city/school etc.... this happens in many of these type of 'superhero' storylines... at least on tv... .everyone starts to show some type of power... too much..... hopefully the writers in the next, "Alternative" can control themselves better... even if they can't get back to the original glory... which was mostly just crazy cool.. and still is...

As already posted above Alternative is currently airing, dubbed up to ep.5 so 1 more·left this upcoming saturday... usually i don't enjoy crazy stuff just for the sake of madness, but yes S1 got an unique style that hooked me back then!^_^
