Love Hina is a much tamer love story that occationally has seens that are obsurd enough to be like FLCL, including giant turtle robots. Imagine the crazyness of FLCL stretched to fit over 32 eppisodes instead of condensed into six.

RahXephon

RahXephon

Ayato Kamina may seem like an average boy in a devastated world, but after being captured by TERRA, a military organization set on saving the world from the Mu, an alien race set on "tuning" the world, he realizes he is an instrument in deciding the fate of humanity and piloting RahXephon. Not only is Ayato the only person who can control the mecha, but he also has a terrible fate of his own. Holding onto memories of his old life and grasping to keep his own humanity, he must struggle in this new world and realize his true potential with RahXephon.

If FLCL's bizarre mecha and cool character concepts are what kept you watching and left you bitter that it was all over, you may want to delve into Rah Xephon, which delivers an amazing combination of action, interesting characters, and complex plot.

Read or Die

Read or Die

Secret agent for the British Libraries, Yomiko Readman, has an infatuation with books.

Read or Die oozes style from every pore, but when I think of anime with style, the first title to pop into my head is FLCL just because it's so unique. Fans of RoD's action ought to enjoy the twisted mecha battles in FLCL; fans of RoD's ultra-campy world ought to find something to like in FLCL's juxtaposition of the real and unreal.

Princess Tutu

Princess Tutu

Once there lived an eccentric author called Drosselmeyer who wrote grand tragedies - one of them was the tale of a prince who sealed away an evil raven by breaking his own heart into tiny pieces. However, before the story could be completed, the author died and the tale took on a life of its own. Now, in a town where fiction and reality meet, the story continues on its tragic course with Ahiru, a duck who transforms into the beautiful Princess Tutu in order to restore the prince's heart. But will Ahiru's act of love be enough to defy the story's terrible destiny and lead to a happy ending?

Kind of a wierd jump into fairy tales. I first watched it because someone told me it looked very FLCL-ish (hard to say what it is, but it does, kind of) and whatever it is, I've been a fan of it ever since.

Golden Boy

Golden Boy

Having recently dropped out of law school, where he had finished the graduation requirements but didn't actually graduate, Kintaro Oe is on a new self-driven quest for knowledge. His adventures will lead him to a variety of workplaces including a computer firm, noodle shop, and even an animation studio, where his seemingly perverse attitude always tends to get him into trouble with the opposite sex. The moral of the story? Study! Study! Study!
