FLCL: Complete Collection

A young boy gets hit on the head by a bass guitar-wielding girl who says she’s an alien from another planet. That’s weird enough. When the bump on his head grows into a giant robot that acts as a household servant (when it’s not engaged in fights with other giant creatures), you know you are entering a realm that few stories — even anime stories — ever go. You know you are in for a wild ride when even the characters admit directly to the viewer that even they don’t know where the story is taking them. Like a lot of great trips, though, its the journey and not the destination that makes this one worthwhile.
