According to our source, the animation studio Production I.G. has, “acquired the rights to the 2000-2001 original video anime FLCL from Gainax, with whom I.G co-produced the anime. It added that it will take advantage of those rights for a ‘new anime remake’ and other ventures.” Are you looking forward to this remake? Let us know in the comments below.
If you’ve never heard of FLCL, be sure to check out the synopsis and trailer below:
Naota is a detached sixth-grader afflicted by the pangs of puberty. He’s fooling around with his brother’s ex-girlfriend when a crazed girl on a motor scooter runs him over, brains him with a bass guitar, and moves into his house. This pink-haired girl, Haruko—who claims she’s an alien—hurls Naota into the middle of a mega-corporation’s secret agenda. Oh, and now giant battling robots shoot from his skull.
