FLCL also known as Furi Kuri in Japan or Fooly Cooly in English markets tells the story of a twelve-year-old boy named Naota Nandaba. Naota has a typically boring working-class existence in the city of Mabase. That all changes when he meets a young woman named Haruko Haruhara, and he discovers that the circumstances of his young life might be changed forever. Other characters include Mamimi Samejima, ex-girlfriend to Naota's older brother, who remains unseen in the series, as well as a robot named Canti which manifests itself from Naota's head.
The series was written by Yoji Enokido who has written many other popular anime series. It was also directed by Kazuya Tsurumaki, a long-time animator and director for Gainax. It was originally released as an OAV or original animated video for the home-video market, although it has since aired on multiple networks.
The show opens up with Naota walking home one day with Mamimi, when suddenly he's struck by Haruko on a Vespa scooter. After the accident he develops a mysterious bump on his forehead, and Haruko begins to follow him around. She even goes so far as to become a live-in housekeeper for his father. Soon after this Naota discovers that his bump is some sort of portal when two robots emerge from it and begin to battle. Throughout the remaining five episodes many similarly strange things continue to befall the baffled Naota.
The FLCL Production Committee which included Gainax, Production I.G and Starchild Records was responsible for producing the series. The series is in six parts each having a run-time of roughly twenty-three minutes. In the United States it airs intermittently as part of Cartoon Network's Adult Swim line-up, as well as on the FUNimation channel.
