Anime Fashion Accessory Review

If you've been reading these pages for any length of time, you'd know we're nuts over FLCL. Gainax's madcap 6-episode masterpiece ranks highly in anime canon. And any chick that beats up a Vespa with a baseball bat as part of the closing credits gets our vote.

FLCL (Fooly Cooly) IllustrationAs such, we highly recommend this Haruko Messenger Bag, in bright red -- to be visible, even at night, so you'll be safe in traffic when riding your broken-down scooter. Just be careful who you whack in the head with your Rickenbacker -- or be prepared to pull out alien robots and fight to the death.

Loaded with pockets and places to put stuff, this bag is stylish and functional. Everybody needs a place to put their stuff, and this is it. And remember, the sour drinks don't taste so bad after all...

FLCL (Fooly Cooly) - Vol. 1
Anime DVD Review

FuriKuri pokes fun at everything in a bizarre self-referential way, while being absolutely the most intentionally obtuse series since Excel Saga. Created by Studio Gainax, this set of 6 episodes contains enough character, storyline and wit to have actually been 4 times as long. You're going to need to watch every frame, because, believe us, some of it goes by so fast it'll make your head spin.

FLCLFor those of you living on chaos theory, you'll learn a thing or two about yourself in the complete and total madness of this show's slice-of-life, stylistically-intense, coming-of-age screwball-comedy. Combined with the most awesome rockin' soundtrack we've ever heard, this is 6 episodes that may be the greatest anime ever. Get all the DVDs.

Anime Soundtrack Review

This release by Pioneer/Geneon is simply rockin'! The soundtrack to one of the most awesome anime mini-series ever is hard-rocking bass and guitar goodness. The Pillows, a Japanese rock-group, combining head-banging, edgy punk rock with some soulful guitar, the garage-band sound here is somewhere between The Ramones and Nirvana, which ain't such dusty company. The ever popular "Ride on Shooting Star" is right there as track 2, but deeper into the album are some of the more interesting tracks (our fave, track 20, is Naota's "head banging" transformation theme).

Get this, get this, get this is all we can say. Incredible music from an awesome anime. If this album doesn't get you to air-guitar (and/or drive really, really fast), then you just aren't an anime fan.
