      SUMMARY
      Naota's life isn't simple: he lives with his eccentric father and grandfather in a two-story house above a family-owned bakery in a town marked by a gigantic factory at its heart. The factory looks suspiciously like a hand iron, complete with a steam release at the top--not the most typical landmark. Life is already strange enough, but to top it off, his older brother's ex-girlfriend starts making extremely suggestive passes at him... and an impish, playful alien smacks him in the head with a bass guitar and then infuses herself into his family.

      It is up to you of you would like to join reading FLCL, good thing is though is that there are only 2volumes to this one so I guess you don't need to read them online if you can borrow them



      I read a chapter last night, it's just as random as the anime, but I think I it's probably a bit too strange if you haven't watched the anime. I love the illustration style it's very different from anything I've read before

      Re: MBC: FLCL - Discussion thread

      I read the first chapter and a half, and I can honestly say I have no idea what I'm reading.

      I'm also not sure how I feel about the art style. It's definitely not what I'm used to <_<

      I've seen the Anime so many times but never got around the reading the mangas. I tried to read the first one in the bookstore but didn't get to finish it.

      Re: MBC: FLCL - Discussion thread

      I read a few chapters and it is a bit harder to follow than the anime. But I still like it. And I enjoy the art. It's a little rough but that's what makes me like it.

      Re: MBC: FLCL - Discussion thread

      I'm interested to see how it differs. Even though I only vaguely remember the anime, and then I found it so-so.

      But we'll see, this weekend when I have some time.

      Earl Douglas Haig, Order to the British Army, 12 April 1918

      So death, the most terrifying of ills, is nothing to us, since so long as we exist, death is not with us; but when death comes, then we do not exist. It does not then concern either the living or the dead, since the former it is not, and the latter are no more.

      Re: MBC: FLCL - Discussion thread

      I'll give you that, the art style is pretty different. Less refined than the manga I'm used to reading at least. It might be because I haven't seen the anime, but its a bit hard to follow. So far I'm on the fence about it.

      Re: MBC: FLCL - Discussion thread

      Was a bit shocked at how sketchy it looked. Wasn't a major distraction though, as the plot is distracting enough. I feel that the bizzare and difficult-to-follow nature of the story works well with the art, far more than the polished nature of the anime. I found the cleaner nature of the series something a little distracting, and so far, enjoying the manga than I ever did the anime.

      Re: MBC: FLCL - Discussion thread

      I actually like the anime better. Not that the manga is bad. It's just confusing. Perhaps I should have read this one before watching it 100's of times?
