FLCL or Fooley Cooley 

New DVD release

No matter how old you are, there's something cool about a cartoon robot battle. These days, the thought of robot battles reeks of Michael Bay but even he can't make the original animated Transformers uncool. But when compared to the epic, visceral robot duels of beloved anime series FLCL, even Transformers is kid stuff.

Created in 2001, FLCL (pronounced Fooly Cooly) gained a strong fan base with its amazing visuals: robots erupting from a young boy's skull battled a pink haired girl with a bass guitar. The story--with all the oddness unique to classic anime--is a coming-of-age tale and touches on all of the awkwardness and pain of growing up. After being unavailable for four years, the essential DVD collection is now for sale.
