Back in April of last year, we reported that Adult Swim was bringing new seasons of the anime fan-faavorite FLCL back to TV! Well, at this year’s Anime Expo, the Anime Gods have graced us with a first trailer!
Check it out below!
In the new season of FLCL, many years have passed since Naota and Haruhara Haruko shared their adventure together. Meanwhile, the war between the two entities known as Medical Mechanica and Fraternity rages across the galaxy. Enter Hidomi, a young teenaged girl who believes there is nothing amazing to expect from her average life, until one day when a new teacher named Haruko arrives at her school. Soon enough, Medical Mechanica is attacking her town and Hidomi discovers a secret within her that could save everyone, a secret that only Haruko can unlock.
But why did Haruko return to Earth? What happened to her Rickenbacker 4001 she left with Naota? And where did the human-type robot ‘Canti’ go?
All of these questions and more will be answered in the new season of the series, which is set to premiere in late 2017/early 2018 on Adult Swim.
For myself, FLCL is by far one of my favorite anime… and it’s a short ass list. Though I have mixed emotions about a follow-up… I am also SUPER EXCITED for it too! I definitely have a lot of questions about what happens next in this world. But the trailer definitely gave me all the poppy, fun feels from the original!
I’ll definitely be eagerly waiting for this in late 2017!
