    FUNimation license rescue of GAINAX Studio OVA series (FLCL)

    Grumble Grumble Grumble

    After announcing the license of several live-action features this week, FUNimation today announced the license rescue of a long out of print GAINAX Studio OVA series...


    Fooly Cooly - The Official Anime Website from FUNimation
    FLCL Lands at FUNimation - Mania.com
    Funimation Adds Gainax, I.G's FLCL Anime on Blu-ray/DVD - Anime News Network

    I missed this series during it's over-priced original release. It looks like I can finally pick this up at a reasonable price towards the end of the year...

    Finally. I have been searching for the third DVD of the original run for years. Looks like I will likely have to re-buy the whole thing, but at least I will finally have it all on DVD.
    Who needs a signature.

    YAY! *does a dance*

    I've been wanting a factory press of this for ages.

    Thanks so much for posting this info up, Len! You've made me a happy girl. ^.^

    I'm also excited for it to be at a decent price. V.V;;

    Awesome. I wish they would rescue other series. Kudos to you for wanting to acquire the series the right way other than piracy.

    Indeed. ^.^

    That was the only way I was able to see FLCL - My old roomie downloaded it. I never had the illegal copy of it. I remember seeing it on DVD a while ago, but it was sooooo expensive it wasn't worth it all. ((HHmmm... FLCL... or rent...)) LOL!

    I own factory press of all the series that I really love. ^.^

    YES!!! No more searching for the two episodes I'm missing on the internet!! Goodbye .avi files and hello box-set!! ^_^

    I'm a long time fan of FLCL and The Pillows. The anime and the band work so well together. It was like animated, musical greatness of massive proportions! ^_^
    Were it not for FLCL, I'd probably have stopped watching [adult swim] a long time ago. Now I watch [AS] in hopes of them airing an anime series almost just as great as FLCL but longer.

    The same GAINAX Studio production team and director went on to make 'Gunbuster 2', and the award winning 'Gurren Lagann', and both series exhibit the same chaotic animation style that first pioneered in 'FLCL'
