I read a post from Borderline Hikikomori about episode four of FLCL. I commented:
I was in elementary school when FLCL aired on Cartoon Network. I remember I used a ‘tape recorder’ to record each episode.
I was in sixth grade just as Naota was in FLCL. Obviously this show wasn’t designed for children in mind, but at the time, it was exactly what I wanted.
Seriously, all of these high level topics mixed in with humor that a sixth grader to appreciate. That’s pretty neat. Looking back on old high quality anime like that, ten years ago now, is interesting. back then, I thought it was visually stunning but now it’s just a blur of it’s former beauty.
