Long story short, FLCL is simply a masterpiece. The animation isnt bad and varies quite often for great effect (particular the manga-style scenes which are superb). The Pillows (who perform all music in the show) are a fantastic band who I have listened to extensively since watching this show for the first time. Each character is unique, and Naota's voice overs are extremely good at gaguing story progress and character development. The biggest let down of this series for me is its length. There was so much development in the 6 episodes that is is truly a shame, though well concluded.
