I.G. and Khara seem to have a good relationship since the former's animators have been contributing to the Rebuild movies so Khara could help out in any new FLCL project. Not sure about Trigger though.

Problem is, that they will try to make it 13 episodes. Even if people try to deny it, one of FLCL's reasons success is because of how much budget was put into each episode.

The industry in its current state will try to just cash in from it, spending just a fraction of what the original series was made for.

I dunno. I, for one, am ready for our remake overlords.

Just imagine how much better it will be now that all that dumb rock music by The Pillows is replaced by nano.ripe.

Just imagine how amazing it will be when the theme of "being comfortable with who you are and trying to understand who you are is what maturity means," is replaced with "hikki-NEETS are da REAL MVP!"

Just imagine how amazing it will be when Haruko is re-envisioned as a mild, meek, complacent waifu whose only expression of her own sexuality are panty shots for the audience, because anything else is just so scary for our gentle otaku friends.

Just imagine how amazing an anime classic will be when it has to be completely re-imagined to be compatible with the modern anime market and culture.

FLCL2 is going to be a shitty 12 episodes series full of QUALITY and a mediocre soundtrack by Sawano, I don't know why would they pick a show like this one if it's literally impossible to make justice to the original OVAs.

Are you guys just joking? This could be great.

Have you forgotten what FLCL even is? It's an excuse for animators and directors to do their own shit within the confinements of the script.

As long as I.G. don't forget this, this will serve as a nice reference point to how animators and directors have changed in the past 10 years, the same way Diebuster did to Gunbuster (granted, with a larger time frame and greater technological advancement).

this pisses me off. im gonna hate to say it, but im going into this unhappy

@Gigastrength
That FLCL is kind of like Abenobashi, or Space Dandy - though the latter is episodic which is a bit different.

It's an animator/director playground where the staff aren't restricted by one certain style that they must follow. The shows aren't stylistically consistent. Some episodes might not even be stylistically consistent between two cuts, especially in FLCL, where in one cut the style is suddenly straight out of South Park, while in the next it's all out Ohira style.

While we have an FLCL thread going, can someone explain what the fuck is up with the manga?
