To fully understand it, watch it 5-6 times

Exactly, since there are so many in-jokes and references, both visual and verbal. Or check it out on Wikipedia, too. Has some interesting information, there.

You know this anime had absolutely posotively lost me in the first three episodes... then I stopped watching. I couldn't get to sleep because I was always wondering "What in the name of 1999 just transpired" and I just kept on thinking of the insane storyline... in the words of Dave Chappelle: WHAT? (then later) OKAY!
That is my summary of this show: Confusion, Acceptance, Addiction.
(Still good anime)

Awesome anime yet I think the storyline was meant to let viewers never knowing exactly whats going on with a clear definition.Its like a weird rollercoaster where you just participate in its madness.

I believe this anime is the perfect solution for anyone who just needs a dose of pure confusion and chaos. Whenever i feel like the world is too chaotic for me or i'm in true need of something to rattle my brain, to wake me up from my dull surroundings, or just to make my day i watch FLCL.

I sorta have a hard time understanding it as well, but even though it's confusing i still watch it from time-2-time. All i can tell you is that it is one of those anime that you watch mainly for the madness that is in it, like Kemeko Deluxe or Macademi Wasshoi. That is the reason why i watch it...FOR THE MADNESS XD

I think the whole point of this anime is to teach one how to SMASH OTHER PEOPLE AND FIGHT EVIL ALIEN THINGS WITH ROCK GUITARS! BOOYA! GODDNIGHT AND PEACE OUT MINA-SAN! :pacman:

But in all seriousness

Its very very true...
So get onboard and ride the chaos into the late hours of the night! XD

A moment bound in eternity.

FLCL is a lot of stuff. Mostly confusing, but its technically a metaphor for puberty and maturity. If you watch it and think about it that way it starts to make more sense.

FLCL is the stuff of legends (while I know there are people that exist that think the exact opposite). It's a series that really made jumping into the new millennium worthwhile. Anyway, enough with my ranting.

Here is a 9-page essay (yes, nine pages, not a typo) that goes into depth about the different aspects you see in the series. I really found it beautiful and eye-opening while reading it (did that a couple of years ago, so don't remember all the stuff in it). It's an interpretation nevertheless that might answer many questions you may have and bring up newer ones, or perhaps change the way you view the series making you view it again and get a different interpretation after that, or make you go "Furi....Kura?" ^_^

Anyways, here is the link to the essay: http://peachcreek02.tripod.com/peachcreek/id17.html

FLCL---I finally saw this insane anime when my hall mates decided to watch it. And...yeah...it was very confusing. From what I got from it:

1) You're supposed to be confused.
2) Love or hate the randomness---you choose.
3) "Smoooooooooooch!"
4) The only thing that makes sense in FLCL is nothing.
5) Eyebrows.

"If everyone cared and nobody cried, if everyone loved and nobody lied, if everyone shared and swallowed their pride, then we'd see the day...when nobody died. I'm singing amen I, amen I, I'm alive." - Nickelback: "If Everyone Cared."

If only, if only, the world were like this. If only, if only, it only existed.

There is no storyline, at least I don't think so.
It is just an awesome anime, with a whole bunch of randomness.

FlCL is awesome the way it is
