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!^_^

Just finished ep 3 of this FLCL Alt... that rap bit was very well done.... this series is better than Progressive I think, as it's more in line with the original, but it does seem more family friendly like Progressive was... high school based, whereas the original was jr high wasn't it? but most of the time was spent out of school... I just think a few words here and there would push the plot, the setup etc.... that isn't given any explanation.... what happened to that first kid? what happened to that last girl et al? All of this could be explained with a few words here and there.... What happened to her search for 'Adam' or whatever it was called? though 'he' seemed more non-gender IMO..... but nothing is explained... as if each series is a standalone... the first... and it really wouldn't take but a few words here and there....

Oh well... this series has less characters, more basic high school stuff, so easier to plot around... less clutter... in some ways better, in other ways worse than Progressive... but there are moments in this, like that rap scene that reminded me of the original that was total wacko.... the team doing this really needs to focus on that.... 3 eps left... I wonder if they will just end this like the others... no real ending, no explanation... which points to another series anytime they want... if the ratings/sales etc are there to finance it.... It's always hard to recapture the magic of an original series... but are they really trying to? most of the sexual stuff is gone in both of the new cours... and most of the quirkiness is gone too... no more Vespa... I forgot what happened to it last time..... time has passed... characters age.... Oh well.... could be better written on all fronts, but still entertaining..... just not edgy at all... .like the original. The H.S. setting does that... the cast of friends etc... hmmm.. I think they are trying to be mainstream too much... at least there are a few hints here and there in this Alt cour so far... I'd like to see more.

What this reminds me of is the Disney redo of Lucas's Star Wars franchise.... a pale redo... nothing more.... and even Lucas went too family friendly by the 3rd one... .so no surprise. This seems to be the case with FLCL redo... I wonder if the original creators of it are involved or not?

Finished it.... ep 4 was pretty good... but it continued the same to the end... IF that was the end... the girls's (Hana) speech on love, friendship etc was a little lame, don't you think? and that symbol on her forehead wasn't setup in the plotline earlier... .so little effect when we see it.... as it isn't explained, like everything else... you can't continue a story like this without enough background info.... you have to foreshadow things as well.... weakness in the script... .ok otherwise.... but like the original, we still don't know WTF is really going on.... we assume it's us vs them, but 'them' isn't explained.... so that makes it hard to get into that action much.... a weak ending... which doesn't really seem like an ending.... same as always.... still no exposition on the setup.... why some people (kids mostly) are able to produce stuff from their minds and others aren't.... etc.

Oh well.... kind of glad it's over... imagine if it went for another 6 eps with the same result. <_<

i think it's mild' to not be censored in CN Adult Swim, Toonami or whatever?... still seems i'm not missing much, so no hurry for me until they end subbing!:P

Watching that YT vid on FLCL production... at IG... new staff that knew nothing about the original?.... then it seems those they choose did love the original.... THe original creator said he did what was in his mind at that time... a zeitgeist thing it seems... and he couldn't do it now.... or something like that..... This explains the problem with the new cours.... lacks that vibe... this always happens when times change and new staff take up an old project.... especially if they fail to understand why it worked... even, or especiallly if they liked/loved it... it's obviously a different vibe... Oh well... it's over. Thanks for the vid ... explains it.

Looks like this was part of the same interview... and same problem... was that the same director as the original? Wasn't it the writer they couldn't get on board for this new series? Wasn't it the writer that didn't think he could connect with that aspect of himself again? If the director didn't understand it, nor the producer etc, then it was the writer that was responsible for the original being 'crazy cool'... as the new ones aren't.... not bad, but lacks that feeling.. they don't explain things left vacant in the original... the 3rd doesn't explain what happened after the 2nd ... as being 3rd implies it comes after the 2nd... even if they are traveling in time, from an experience/consciousness aspect, it comes later.....

 

Oh well, to be expected when they don't understand why something worked... how can they even try to replicate it? -_-

:/ so sad knowing, both sequel series got the same band from S1·soundtrack... with their return i hoped it to feel alike, hearing again that kind of music :huh:

it has moments, but the band lacks that feel from the past as well as the directors etc.... but that's to be expected as time passes and people get older, mature, deal with their issues etc... they lose that 'angst'.. they lose that sexual fascination/frustration etc.... the writer of the original was honest at least.... maybe he didn't need the money, didn't want to 'sell out'... or just wanted to stay true to himself etc.

 

The new stuff is still pretty good, but not the original... and what surprises me the most is how they fail to see it.... especially that producer from the production company... of course they fail to achieve the original's feel, because they never felt it. :rolleyes:

just found Progressive subbed into a 2·hour, 15 min movie (only one OP/ED)... I must agree with most you have pointed, at least glad i skipped dubs :unsure:
