Fooly Cooly, Fooly Coola, Fooly Cooly, Fooly Coola…
The FLCL Hype Train is building to critical mass, as Toonami wraps up its reairing of the original six episodes by airing them back to back to back (to back to back to back) over Memorial Day weekend. For those counting down from the airing of Episode 1, this was likely expected, as the placement of the re-airings left the week before the premiere a blank spot and primed for a marathon.
The fooly festivities begin on May 26th at 10:30 PM, and go to 1:45, it all starts over from the beginning. Relive the Rickenbacker hit and runs, holy arsons, chandeliers eating spicy curry, interstellar home runs, Gibson EB-0s, giant irons, and all the robots popping out of teenage heads before the final countdown to the new season. Perfect timing to invite newcomers over to throw it at them all at once, or a good way to wind down after walking around at San Jose’s Fanimecon, which will be going on around then.
