Early Reader Review: FLCL Omnibus by Gainax

FLCL (Omnibus)FLCL Omnibus by Hajime Ueda
Available: May 16th, 2012
Publisher: Dark Horse Comics

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Background: From the Publisher “The complete FLCL manga adaptation--now with bonus color illustrations and remastered story pages! In this surreal sci-fi romp, a sullen Japanese boy finds himself in the middle of an interstellar conspiracy. As his home life unravels, a sexy space assassin becomes his family maid, and his own head becomes a portal for armed robots. Life as he knows it is quickly falling apart, and Ueda doesn’t know who’s friend or foe! One thing’s for certain--he has to grow up quick and save his hometown, whether he wants to or not!”

Review: I absolutely LOVE FLCL (Fooly Cooly)! I watched the Anime/ Adult Swim versions, and this complete set of the manga series with illustrations and color pictures is amazing. The story line is so funny, a random girl on a Vespa runs over a kid (Naota), then becomes his family maid and all hell breaks loose around him. Not to mention Mamimi, who is a pyromaniac and animal collector who is obsessed with Naota’s brother and never leave Naota alone. The armed robots plot line is great just because it is so random and funny. If you haven’t read these or seen the show…please do it!
