If you liked the FLCL anime, the Anime-Planet community thinks you'd like:
$10 can not only buy you a cute hamster; it also get you a devoted housekeeper who will cook, clean, put on suntan lotion, and cheer you on when your relationships get stale! Does it seem like a dream? Then picture what life would be like if anybody who calls your house gets to know the contents of your underwear drawer! If you can’t imagine what rodents and ecchi have to do with each other, then enter the life of the hamster Ebichu, her sexy master, and the good-for-nothing boyfriend Kaishounachi, and see why a talking hamster can be such a bother!
A similar sense of humor is present in both FLCL and Ebichu. If you liked one, you might like the other.
Same kind of drawing, voice acting, japanese pun, non sense, violence. Both are short series. Ebichu is more realistic and the content is more explicit (sex scenes/ecchi stuff). FLCL has more action and futuristic aspects. The art is better and the soundtrack is really cool.
In a world where reality series are in high demand, an experiment was concocted: take regular folks who have dropped through the cracks in society, brainwash them to believe they are a real family, and see how they function as a family unit. The regular populace was so interested in the idea that this family was put in their own reality series, of course! Living in a closed environment and unaware of the outside world, this dysfunctional bunch do everything they can to remain sane... that is, until they accidentally escape!
The humor and feel of these two animes are very similar. While pulls guitars out of peoples heads the other has people flushing virtually everything down toilets. They both have off the wall plots and insane creativity.
Before starting to watch either FLCL or Eternal Family, mentally prepare yourself for a visual and mental rollercoaster. Not always making sense, these two shows are wrapped up pretty quickly.
After wading through the garish animated exterior, the actual grit of the shows is fascinating. FLCL studies the chaos brought to a boys life when a guitar whielding maniac crashes into his life. Eternal Family shows the struggle of a test tube family, and the "father's" realisation that lack of blood ties does not mean lack of parental feelings.
If you enjoy the psychological experimentation of one, I think you'll enjoy the other.
Sousuke Sagara is far from the average high school student - not only is he highly trained in military tactics, he puts his knowledge to use in every single applicable situation (and even those nonapplicable ones.) So, when confronted with high school, he tends to turn average high school experiences into off-the-wall adventures. Love letters become terrorist threats and field trips become commando operations; his survival depends on the watchful eye of his best friend and classmate, Kaname. Together, they may just make it out of high school alive...
if you enjoyed the random humor in FLCL then the slightly more slapstick Fumoffu may be something you would enjoy. Both stories center around the impact that the sudden arrival of a person makes to your life.
Both FMP? Fumoffu and FLCL are off the wall, random, hyper and hilarious. FLCL is shorter and less character driven than Fumoffu and Fumoffu isn't quite as 'out there' as FLCL, but they're both totally silly and irreverent send-ups of anime action and drama.
Fumiko, a timid school girl, shyly confesses her feelings for a boy named Takeshi. But rather than return the sentiments, he apologetically explains he needs to focus on baseball instead! Crying and embarrassed, Fumiko runs away down a hill – but she goes so fast, she can’t stop!
Fumiko no Kokuhaku and Furi Kuri both have chaotic humour, fast action and same silly atmosphere
both Furi Kuri and Fumiko no Kokuhaku are weird, fast and funny. i can easily imagine FnK series - silly, meaningless and it would end the same way as it would've started. no need to imagine FLCL, cause it's already been serialized, and it's just as i said above. both can blow your mind up and leave you with a 'what it was?' feeling ~
Rentarou has been running the Futaba Detective Agency with the help of his twin assistants Sara and Soujyu since the previous man in charge, his father, died. To top it off most people in the neighborhood refer to him as Nidaime, a second generation man who lives in his father's shadow. His late father was a great man that was looked up to by everyone good or bad including Rentarou. With problems from his father's legacy presenting themselves, Yakuza that sometimes want him dead, a workplace/home that keeps getting destroyed and Sara and Soujyu's growing feelings for him, will he ever live up to his father?
Both animes offer a bunch of random comedy throughout the series. While FLCL's was put up in 6 episodes, Futakoi Alternative's was spread out over 13. They both had me laughing and they both had very climatic final episodes.
If you like those super crazy comedies, than you'll feel at home with both FLCL and Futakoi Alternative. While the style of humor is similar in both series Futakoi Alternative doesn't go as far as FLCL did and it even has a little bit of drama. Well, FLCL was suppose to have some drama too, but it's really hard to spot behind all the other madness.
