Ride on, shooting stars. A new saga in this wacky world is about to begin.
Anime Expo recently published their event schedule for this year’s event. The schedule currently includes a “FLCL 2 & 3 Panel”, slated for July 2 at 3:00PM (6:00PM Eastern). The panel description describes the event as:
Showing trailer, poster giveaway, production announcements, etc.
In March 2016, Adult Swim’s Toonami Block announced that they’re producing two new seasons of the FLCL anime. The new seasons are currently slated to be a sequel to the original FLCL.
Turner Media describes the new seasons as:
In the new season of FLCL, many years have passed since Naota and Haruhara Haruko shared their adventure together. Meanwhile, the war between the two entities known as Medical Mechanica and Fraternity rages across the galaxy. Enter Hidomi, a young teenaged girl who believes there is nothing amazing to expect from her average life, until one day when a new teacher named Haruko arrives at her school. Soon enough, Medical Mechanica is attacking her town and Hidomi discovers a secret within her that could save everyone, a secret that only Haruko can unlock.
But why did Haruko return to Earth?
What happened to her Rickenbacker 4001 she left with Naota?
And where did the human-type robot ‘Canti’ go?
FLCL director Kazuya Tsurumaki will supervise the project, with Katsuyuki Motohiro (Psycho-Pass) directing at Production I.G. Yoshiyuki Sadamoto (Neon Genesis Evangelion, FLCL) will return to provide character designs on the project, as Hideto Iwai (Last Dinner) pens the screenplay.
The Pillows, who provided the iconic soundtrack for the original FLCL, is returning to score the soundtrack on the new project.
