So first Khara buys full Eva right, now this.

At this point I'm starting to think that Yamaga is having a firesale on all the old Gainax licenses so that he can get some kind of funding for Aoki Uru.

Maybe Panty & Stocking license will be sold to Trigger next and they'll make the 2nd season we all need? D:

A good question to think about might me whether or not Gainax is pulling a Marvel-- selling off their rights when they need cash, but may regret it later if they recover and realize that they want their rights back. Of course, this assumes that Gainax is actually going to recover, and that they would produce quality content in the future, but we can't know anything about that...

Is there really anything left of Gainax except Yamaga managing the various licenses? I'm fairly sure they've left their long time headquarters back when Trigger people moved out.

What the heck are they going to do with it? Create a whole new series? That would be tarnishing the originals legacy somewhat wouldn't it?

Maybe they could make something longer with a story-line more like the manga. That would be interesting wouldn't it?

^I'd rather not see FLCL get subjected to the franchise zombie treatment, or even a terrible remaster like what happened with Sailor Moon Crystal. It deserves to remain untouched.

I wouldn't say it deserves to remain untouched. Currently the OVA is only available in SD, given it's a digital production from 2000. The BDs are absolutely atrocious Q-TEC'd garbage. If they somehow dig up all the original, higher res digital elements and properly recomposite them in 1440x1080 instead of 640x480 that would be a great benefit to humanity.

Imaishi & Studio Trigger should buy Gurren Lagann to keep it safe.

I mean we can all agree Gainax is dead? The studio was a wonderful thing that delivered some real magic but is now just a former shell of itself.

I think there's nothing wrong with exploring the FLCL universe. We don't need a direct sequel or reboot, but different characters in a similar setting (with similar sensibilities) could work.

-the only English language novel actually being developed in parallel to its Japanese version involving a pan-human Soviet in a galactic struggle to survive and to export the communist utopia/revolution to all the down trodden alien class and race- one of the premise being that Khrushchev remains and has abandoned Lysenko stupidity

I see no point in that. FLCL was pretty much a mess of allegories and metaphores. I don't think we need another one of those since it would be annoying repetition.

I love FLCL, and I think the 4:3 aspect ratio and DVD quality video even enhance the experience. It's like looking at old VHS tapes from my childhood. So I'm not really interested in a shot for shot remake, especially since apart from the video quality FLCL's look has aged remarkably well. Then again, if Tsurumaki feels like there is still some room for another story in the universe, then why not?

FLCL's my fave anime series.I don't really think there'd be a point in a retelling or anything like that but, if they do make a sequal to it, I would prefer something that has very little to do with the original, in other words I would prefer a diebuster over a rebuild.If they do something that's in the same universe but not directly related I think that could be cool.

Will be interesting to see how this goes from here, given the majority of the FLCL staff are at Trigger and khara.

Press releaseeeeeeeee

https://www.turner.com/pressroom/turner ... eries-flcl

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.

Back for the new season is FLCL series creator Kazuya Tsurumaki, serving as supervisor with director Katsuyuki Motohiro (Psycho-Pass) and character designer Yoshiyuki Sadamoto (Neon Genesis Evangelion). Also joining this season is writer Hideto Iwai (Last Dinner).


Kazuya Tsurumaki is back is some form at least all we need is The Pillows and fucking god dang we are ready to goooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

Tsurumaki being back as "supervisor" is very interesting but in the end my optimism level for this is low.

Now I finally feel how Gunbuster fans felt about Diebuster. This is a story that repeats - Anno was supervisor for Diebuster as well.
