post FLCL wallpapers.
>>2108079Does everyone agree Progressive and Alternative were awful and unworthy?
>>2109294>progresive Literal cancer >alternative Was OK. Simply unremarkable
>>2109451Is that an edit or was it always that lewd?
Is FLCL fandom really this dead?
>>2112719FLCL was 15 years ago. It was only 3 hours total, half the people that watched it back in the day thought it sucked, and be honest, it aged horribly. I don't understand why any fanbase still remains
>>2111711That's the full original image. The poster in Japan seemed less lewd because of the text
to keep this thread alive
>>2108079Thank you OP! This is a beautiful thread. https://youtu.be/gyD8kdOiAOMAlso, Thought I'd add the Sexy Vespa to the bunch. ʕ•ٹ•ʔ
>>2112721>it aged horriblyI watched in 2018 and thought it looks great. In what aspects has it aged horribly?
Mobile version of >>2108209
>>2113504that looks so bad
>>2113504Cheap tattoo detected.
>>2113504my condolences.seriously though, if you're gonna have weeb shit done, save your money, go to LA, and have a real artist do it.
>>2113504It looks pretty good actually, nice choice
>>2113504you're supposed to hate her not love her
>>2113504It doesn't look bad Anon, don't let the haters get to you
>>2113504idk why people hating, looks good anon!
>>2112721To be fair, FLCL is also a case of the manga being different (imo better) than the anime.
>>2115765>>2115767I'm not saying it looks bad, is just that he'll regret it
>>2115949So? I doubt he will, but even if he does, it's not that big a deal. Just cover it or something, don't get more done, and in a few decades it will be forgotten, like all of us.
I have nothing to contribute but since this anime imo was aesthetic as hell someone gotta have a really aesthetic wallpaper not aesthetic as in that vaporwave shit, just some chill ones
black wallpaper for the eggy boys
Watched this recently. Not sure if I’m missing something but I didn’t like it all that much. There wasn’t a single point where I understood what was going on. Is it supposed to be like that or am I retarded?
>>2119560Give it another shot, it'll be less dense/overwhelming.
>>2119560Are you sure you saw the original and not the stupid Progressive or Alternative?
>>2119560If you're talking about the original, same here. I had to watch it 3 times before I got the idea of it. I loved it immediately though. Great music, too.
>>2120664>>2120691Yea it was the original. I’ll probably give it another shot
>>2109294I liked them. I think it would be interesting to get more of these FLCL story arcs done by different people. I like the coming of age stories they do.
>>2120774That is a bit to far.
>>2121722I like it
>>2113504tattoo looks fine but why the fuck is it in this thread
>>2113270Is there one where the robot's right foot and arm are not cut off? I like this wallpaper but the way the robot is cropped ruins it.
>>2119560You aren't stupid. Tsurumaki, after the events of Evangelion, wanted to make a series that were incoherently meaningless and you didn't have to analyze it. The original is a series where you "literally turn your brain off". It's a very idiosyncratic coming of age story, that's all.
>>2113504Pretty well done desu, where did you get it done?
>>2123730His name is canti
>>2119560I didn't understand it either but I loved every second of it. I've watched it probably 10-15 times now since it came out and it really does make sense, under all the craziness.Give it another shot. Look up some videos/articles that break it down if you really want to know what you're seeing on your next watch. it's worth it.
/r/ing the pape of just mamimi's cig that says "never knows best"
>>2118198All the girls are good, but Ninamori is the best
>>2108079r/ing a wallpaper of Naota right before he hits the asteroid
>>2109314I think you got those two reversed m8. Progressive was alright while alternative was complete shit.
>>2126996no glasses, thanks socialism
>>2119560Realize it's an artsy anime done by (at the time) unknown newbie animators trying to make a name for themselves in the business trying to get recognized. The anime is full of symbolism and is about the MC hitting puberty. It does have a bit of the early 2000's "lel so randum XD" sprinkled through-out it that was popular at the time (Excel Saga, Puni Poemi etc) so keep that in mind. Then watch it again another 1 or 2 times and it'll all make more sense.
>>2127783it seems if you like one you hate the other... i liked progressive
>>2130331Hidomi was a shit protagonist even by standard anime series.
>>2130331Whichever had the fat chick was worthless.
>>2119560The plot basically doesn't matter in the original. It's about the confusion of coming into adolescence and is driven much more by its themes. This is a good video that I think captures the series well.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=foulx-DTsrc
>>2133425N: You've also got your "One Piece" spinoff series, which you're working on. Could you tell us why you started this with a single title (other than your own "One Piece", "Hakuoki", "Jinsei-san"? ) and in what fashion the idea of one "Two Piece" came to you? Would you say it was because one of your stories is a remake of "One Piece"?E: I started with the two titles that I do and developed this new story and that's why everyone asked. After all they already told "Bubbles," "Ginyu Bougetsu," "Hyouka." They already said "Itachi Uchiha," but I didn't realize "Aoi-chan" and "Yonkou." "Ginyu Bougetsu" is what started the chain of events. In the case of "Hakuoki" there was a new main character and it was a good idea "to give more room for people who like both of those." I thought after thinking what "Hakuoki" fans want, I should also put "N: I will give you a chance to tell me what you mean by saying "I can put you in the position of a character in different time and situations and what would you like to do about it?"E: I want to answer what you're saying directly by telling you more about the "Kami no Sho" setting. When the story begins, we will have a story of the three main characters of the main story, of two of the main characters of the main story, of the protagonist of the main story and of a character ...
>>2133930is there a version without that filter
>>2134004I found this on iqdb, best I can come up with quickly.
>>2108079are there any other animes like flcl?
>>2134004I found the exact image, no filter.
>>2134122Diebuster and Luluco
>>2113504i think it looks sick man
>>2137060Yeah I'm sick just from looking at it
>>2133550>The huge Iron is actually big Rei's who's naked because she's ironing her clothesIT ALL FITS TOGETHER NOW
i know this isn't /a/ but the symbolism and characterization in this show are extremely coherent, just difficult to parse and understand at firstonce you comprehend it it's easily one of the most poignant anime in existence
>>2116156>for the eggy boysI just find darker screens strain my already awful eyes a lot less than bright ones. Though I do tend to favor cool, dark shades (midnight blue, darker purples, that kind of thing) over straight black.
>>2119560watch it again man and look for the subtle things
>>2109294I just finished FLCL Progressive literally 5 minutes ago. It's been a while since I saw FLCL so it's a little hard to compare... If my memory serves correctly I liked FLCL quite a bit more. There was nothing wrong with Progresive but it seemed to miss some of the energy and intrigue the original had for me.I really like things with a suburban setting and I like FLCL's mix of over-the-top anime action and "slice of life".Even though I dislike their settings and themes more I still prefer Evangelion and Gurren Lagann better... getting into why I prefer them would be way too long a post.In the end I'm just glad we got more FLCL that let me see a glimpse of the original's magic.I'll probably watch FLCL Alternative tomorrow or the day after and update my opinions in this thread if its still alive.
>>2109451Where uh... Where's her belly button
>>2113269The artist did a re-colored version, here.
>>2113373I came here for papes, not to cry.
Here you go, mate
>>2142119The thing about the original one was that it had so much style that it was practically dripping off the pages. The creator had so many references to both american and japanese culture that it was at home in both countries. The problem with the new one is that it seems to just be a reference to the old series and has very little of its own charm. In an anime that is all about style and cultural references, they have very little of both. So I'm forced to think "what the hell was even the point?". Like we could have litterally just gotten a prequil about mamimi and takuns older brother growing up and just roll back the nostalgia to the 80's and it would have worked perfectly. But no, we got that.... at least the music was good
>>2112721>>2113408I rewatched it last month and still love it. Nothing about it has aged poorly. The animation still looks fantastic.
>>2119560I didn't like it much the first time I watched it, but then I rewatched it with the director's commentary and being able to see it for what it is without being constantly confused allowed me to appreciate it much more.
>>2113269here is a phone version
>>2142119Progressive and Alternative are awful.
>>2126995does anyone have the higher res version?
have a bump
>>2148206May I have another?
>>2150271That was my last one
I really need a wallpaper of the ending of flcl alternative, so if anyone hace some pls share
>>2150836That show was unworthy of the FLCL title.
the yellow one op posted is literally the perfect phone wallpaper. its simple, minimalist, meaningful and pleasant. fucking rad been using it for years
>>2154295Be careful around girls who carry baseball bats
Guys, does anyone have that wallpaper of this exact same scene? I've been trying for YEARS looking for that picture but I haven't see it never and my old computer that had it died and can't remember the site, it's this exact scene but it was really beautiful, it wasn't just a copy paste of the scene, it was drawn
>>2113504it doesn't look bad at all wtf even matches the og style
>>2113504dont listen to the retards calling it bad. its decent
>>2161093anyone know the artist mayhaps?that's all i got
>>2161095try sarah lasater
>>2112721I recently watched it for the first time so there is no nostalgia making my judgement fuzzy. I absolutely loved the show. The music is so good and that kind of music is timeless imo the animation is still very good and overall the whole story and the characters made this instantly one of my favourite anime
>>2165041Watching the "sequels" will only reveal the original as that much more awesome.
>>2142133Aliens dont have belly buttons
>>2126996>>2118198Only two so far?
>>2167101Color ver.Anyone has some backgrounds?
>>2134119"Your hair smells like cigarettes"
>>2125958Same thing with yellow
>>2113408I'm sorry you didnt get it....
>>2112721It's dated for sure but it did not age terribly.
>>2113373whats with the random quote?
>>2134122keep your hands off eizouken
>>2167100is there a colored version?
>>2113504 It looks pretty good but low quality
>>2175877looked good enough to me
>>2173240Looking forward to FLCL Rebuild.
>>2113504I've wanted a FLCL tatoo since i was like 13
>>2178035I used to too but then for some reason I decided to go into reddit's flcl discord.I don't recommend.
>>2112721It's literally timeless, how can you say it aged horribly? Looks better than most anime today
>>2112721i loved it so much man its my favorite anime
>>2139177completely agreed people act like flcl is more open ended and abstract than it actually is
Shut up and post wallpapers, nerds
>>2109451It was always that lewd, but the blu-ray box didn't really show it off for obvious reasons.
>>2180051This anon understands.
>>2181939hmmm, I think if you add in a crowd you take out the vespa
>>2113504Cringe sorry dude
>>2112721Showed it to my teenage nephews last year and they loved it and it helped me mature when I was a teen a year ago.
>>2188760a decade* ago
Kuaah..You did you say seifu my ikigai while piloting the Nazi's mecha?
good thread, scooped whatever i didnt havewish there was more FLCL stuff
>>2109314>>2109294The one with the cat ears girl was meh, the one with the group of friends was more comfy.
I made this into a gif with animated stars. Use the gif live wallpaper app if you want to use it as your background on AndroidEnjoy frens
>>2109294Well, getting everyone to agree is not an actual thing. I agree with you. Both were garbage and had me cringing. However, I utterly despised Life Is Strange, yet according to Steam reviews/users, it's one of the best games ever made. So I'm use to feeling like the outsider when it comes to whatever pop culture garbage is considered "good". It's noteworthy that both Progressive and Alternative have been almost completely forgotten.
Terminal Dog is best
>>2113504Anyone have FLCL tattoos or art that would make a nice tattoo? personally I think this shot from the manga would look great!
>>2192163I recommend looking through the manga or art book for something you like
Someone have this image but bigger?
>>2193132that is what we have waifu2x for
>>2155916Came here after watching this same scene on youtube, I'm guessing since this ask is a year old that it's a "no."
Great show desu
does the anime cover all the manga?I only read manga but "one life" has made me think about watching the anime
>>2113504don't listen to them anon, it turned out rly good
>>2195724the anime came first and differs a lot from the mangawatch the anime
>>2194815who the fuck is that
>>2196028Watched the animeHonestlyMamimi was broken, I'm glad she's out of there making a life of herselfShe was my fav. The protagonist was a victim but learned from this experienceNice anime overall
>>2196060i think shes one of the characters from the dog shit new flcl
>>2112721op drinkin a full glass of fucking stupid
>>2161090I loved this image but it needed a Lock Screen and as much as I like the P! I sort of wanted just him without it but I thought I’d post in case someone wanted them even with the change
>>2115556Then I don't wanna be right!
>>2125021You have no idea what happen in the series do you?
>>2119560It takes most people about three watch throughs to really figure out what all is happening in the show.
>>2113461That’s not a mobile version, wtf did you do to it
>>2196147basedi love mamimi too anoni'm still sad i never had a high school gf to abuse me when i was a kid
>>2199990What's so funny?
>>2112721this is the epitome of edgy/pessimistic/nihilistic 4chan opinions on something you personally don't like.>I don't like it, therefore I can't fathom why anyone else could possibly ever like it. It must be complete trash and totally irrelevant.
>>2119560It's kind of like Evangelion where it makes no sense unless you analyze the shit out of it and pay attention to every detail and rewatch it a few times and put everything together
>>2112721>it aged horribly.u aged horribly
>>2155916nah but I feel you this shot is kinda iconic.
Got a Scott Pilgrim style wallpaper
>>2205931Got a few more. Will post them here
>>2205932Think this is the last one I got that hasn't been posted already
>>2205934Nvm found one more. This one's the last I got
>>2145211Do you have the director's commentary, anon? Preferably with subs
>>2145657>>2136918Anyone know the source for this?
>>2109314No,you're wrong.There's no such thing as "Ok"It either is good,or not good.
>>2112721i only got around to watching FLCL a couple years ago because coming of age stories usually suckI like FLCL a lot
heres more https://archive.org/details/flcl-art-book-01_202108
I recommended FLCL to someone who liked Howl. It bombed with her.
>>2167098Absolutely nothing about this gag works in English.
I am quite literally the only active fan that thinks both Progressive and Alternative are good but not at the same level as the og
>>2213665You're not completely alone, there's a few of us. Just not many.
Made this a year or two ago
>>2208288Why did she have that shirt anyway?
>>2112721i agree, but I like rubbing my peen to haruko. Specially after the vore episode in the shity sequal.
Does anyone have one of where the whole cast is on a road trip or something like that? I just know that everyone is in a car.
>>2109314Made me cryBecause it was so bad
>>2109294Yes, absolute Netflix tier trash
FLCL was based as hell. Shame the follow ups are both about being a lesbian or something.FLCL did a good job of contrasting female sexuality against male sexuality. It was a very redpilling anime if you were a young teen or preteen and didn't understand the rules of the game. Men just want the gratification of "knocking it out of the park" successfully do the deed and little else. Women want to lure you in and wrap you up into a twister submission and suck you dry. The moment you're all tapped out of that virile energy, you're discarded, like agent eyebrows- who despite his damaged ego is no worse for wear but lives with a chip on his shoulder that blinds him to the successes in his life.
>>2213875I used to think there was an ironic appreciation for failure and misery. Probably was true then. Now idiot millennials praise the oppression and murderous regime in earnest. Did I mention they are idiots?
>>2113504i genuinely don't know why everyone is shitting on this tattoo i see nothing wrong with it
>>2217674Cuz its quality is really bad. Linework is utter shit and watercolor-like designs age like shit too. subop will end up regretting it in a couple years and cover it with something else/get it removedtl;dr it's shitty tat and a waste of money
>>2199700I changed up the background for visibility reasons on my phone. tell me what you think
>>2218488Just set this as my mobile pape, looks fucking amazing anon
>>2117060upscaled to 4k
>>2186493upscaled to 4k
>>2218764Good job anon
>>2109294Never watched them.Never will.>It is not Kazuya Tsurumaki's story>It is not Naota's storyIt is not FLCL.Shin Eva is more FLCL than prog and Alt will ever be. Buying the property behind the backs of the creators and making something against their wishes without them, bastardizing the main character into a cheap predictable mascot... These are the exact kinds of rotten practices that killed animation in the west.
>>2208289it's on nyaa as "the ultimate correct version"
>>2213875not sure. like i'm sure you could read into it real deeply and metaphorically, like much of the series. i have always thought it was just an interesting visual, and it shows that she wants to be seen as mature, and referencing something historical and/or political is "mature"
>>2113408i really don't think it's aged poorly desu. like its not some crazy complex masterpiece, but its got some nice animation, good music, captures a vibe really well too.
>>2218908>Shin Eva is more FLCLDetails?
>>2112721The writing unironically is more fun than current animes.
>>2112721Rewatched it yesterday after the hype that Sonny Boy made and was claimed by people to be this masterpiece coming of age. Sonny Boy was eh okay. but FLCL gre more on me and reached the rank of a masterpiece in my esteem
>>2113504It looks good dude, don't mind the trannies in this thread who say it's bad, they are just really nazi larpers
>>2217683Lmao, are you retarded? are you taking so much estrogen that shit is fucking your eyes?Shut the fuck up holy shitFucking tranny ass nigger
>>2223269The insecurity reeking in this post.
>>2167097does flcl really have an official pantone color? i can't find anything about it apart from this image
>>2216150>contrasting female sexuality against male sexualitylol how do you miss the mark this hard, shame you missed out on something great
This thread has absolutely gone off the rails in the past few years.
Did you guys hear about the 2 new seasons grunge and shoegaze?
>>2119560 The anime specifically is one of those gems that is both really dense and informative, but also very whacky and pointless. Give it another watch and don't worry about the over arching plot, there is a space opera going on somewhere in the background with Med-Mechanica, Atomos and whatever else. Focus on Naota maturing from a petulant kid to someone who is willing to "swing the bat" (it's sex, they're talking about sex). By the end he asserts himself to Mamimi and Haruko but it's clear he still has a lot of growing up to do. Humor me a bit I have a story to tell.I was an incel many years ago with no personality of my own, I was cultured or at least knowledgeable about things and friends had dragged me to several concerts but I never did anything with that and still wallowed in self pity about being a 22 year old virgin. One day I befriended a slightly older woman on /soc/. By some fucking miracle she agreed to hang out with me for a night in a nearby big city and it was a life changing few hours, I was enamored. This person was brimming with humor, wit and charm and they were fine as fuck to boot. But at every step of the evening from a museum to restaurant to bar, I couldn't keep up, I had no jokes, no stories, nothing to contribute and I realized that I had to change, that I had to stop blaming women and others for me not getting laid or being able to make new friends. She very graciously turned me down a few weeks later. But I wasn't hurt because I knew I had work to do. I'm 28 now and I've been living with my current GF for a few years and things are fantastic. My GF always remarks how cool she though I was when we first met since I was fit as fuck and going to concerts and partying regularly, and I always tells her if it weren't for some QT redhead teaching me how boring I was we wouldn't be dating.I think we're all Naota at some point in our lives but we always have to try and be a better version of ourselves.
>>2225855If you're willing to give it another shot take a look at the tv tropes page for the anime, it clears things up and explains a lot of stuff you may have missed. https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Anime/FLCL
>>2217674Is that completed work or will more colors be added?
>>2225855really cool story. i'm a little like how you were years ago. i just try to be normal i guess. being myself (quiet and not talking to anyone) somehow made me a friend at a previous job so i'm doing something right i guess. your story makes me want to imprpve on myself more so thanks for sharing
from old dogwhistle thread
>>2112721>it aged horriblyThis doesn't mean anything of value.
