TOKYO, JAPAN (GaeaTimes.com)- There are a number of Japanese animation series in the market and FLCL or Fooly Cooly is one of the popular ones. It was not available in the market for a long time. However, the series got a fresh lease of life after Funimation Entertainment said it will bring out a series in Blu-Ray and DVD version in January this year. The series is also known by the name Furi Kuri. The storyline of the series is rather complicated and not everyone is attracted by it. It starts when an alien girl arrives driving a scooter and hits the adolescent boy protagonist with a bass guitar in his head. The Fooly Cooly details are perplexing enough for the viewers who are not acquainted with Japanese anime.
The hyperactive and crazy nature of the series can confuse the viewers. There are a number of metaphorical plots and hidden meanings beneath what is shown on the surface. The series has got its share of criticism for including a liberal dose of sexual metaphors. The situations and dialogue in this series focus on the awkwardness and confusion adolescents go through. The Fooly Cooly details bring out the uniqueness of Japanese anime series.
The plot depicts a truly unconventional love story. It also has a number of references to other popular anime. The Fooly Cooly details may not be much exciting but its music is really appealing. The background music was done by a band known as The Pillows. There is a thriving FLCL community in the web and it reportedly gets updated quite often.
