There was news earlier last year about a sequel to the beloved anime classic FLCL, which is an anime that many older anime fans above the age of 25 will very fondly remember from the early 2000s on Cartoon Network. It has now been revived by Cartoon Network's Adult Swim division in collaboration with Production IG, who worked with anime studio Gainax for the original FLCL.
The band The Pillows are back with their iconic music that gave the original FLCL its amazing soundtrack beloved by many anime fans. Supervising director for the series is Katsuyuki Tomohiro from Production IG, who was Chief Director for Psycho-Pass season 1 and did planning supervision for Psycho-Pass season 2.
There will be 12 episodes of this new FLCL and will be divided into FLCL 2 and FLCL 3, which will come out next year in 2018.
While this trailer looks intriguing and is exciting many FLCL fans, I'm a bit wary of the the whole endeavor since most of the people who made the original aren't involved anymore. I know I am not alone in wondering if such a classic like FLCL even needs a sequel.
I'm just happy there's going to be more songs from The Pillows.
