Would anybody recommend Bamboo Blade? I was curious if it was any good or not.

Yeah, I loved that one. And I'm (not) alone here. Even the series Tentai Senshi Sunred, which started airing a month after Bamboo Blade finished, did a full episode hommage to it.

That's because FLCL is probably the worst piece of garbage spewed out by gainax after Shikabane Hime.

"Often I get the feeling that deep down, your little girl is struggling with your embrace of filmfaggotry and your loldeep fixations, and the conflict that arises from such a contradiction is embodied pretty well in Kureha's character. But obviously it's not any sort of internal conflict that makes the analogy work. It's the pigtails." - Merridian

What?! FLCL is awesome! besides, I thought it was fairly well received with critics. If FLCL is one of Gainax's worst shows, then uh..err.. (cant think of anything good to say) they must have some really good shows. :P

I just assumed in a forum full of people who enjoy finding the meanings in shows like nge (that are worth picking apart) would find interest in FLCL also considering it stands up better than nge probably when you try to dissect it, as it wasn't made as they went along. Even if what its trying to convey is much less.."deep"

So I take it you've never seen He is My Master or Magical Shopping Arcade Abenobashi.

You forgot This Ugly Yet Beautiful World. That one was pretty much a stinker too.

^you took FLCL waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too srsly

FLCL was an experimental anime for GAINAX, its main purpose was to use of bunch of untested animation sequences with very little concern for the plot or characterization

I'm might get killed for saying this, but it's like the Fantasia of GAINAX, all its madness was deliberate

I just don't see how anyone could hate FLCL. Just... why? ;_;

And don't forget to wear the Ran mask.

Nice, Xard. That's nice.

fun thing being FLCL can stand to quite large extent of "serious study" - it hasn't earned the status as one of GAINAX's definitive masterpieces (it's alongside Gunbuster & Honneamise practically only work that ever gets put above Eva. Well, until TTGL came out...) for nothing

Try snorting cocaine and watching FLCL. You'll love the show then.
