An entertainMENt post wouldn't be complete without a bunch of quoted text from someone else to make it look big and fluffy, let's go to the tale of the tape and read the synopsis they have toasted on hAmazon.com:
When the three powerhouse creators of Eden of the East, Gurren Lagann and Neon Genesis Evangelion bumped heads, they spawned the series that broke all the rules - then broke the mold.That pretty much sums it up. Whoever wrote that should get a job summarizing movies. Did you know professional "writers" who summarize movies wrote about Ridley Scott's "Alien" (1979) that it was "Like Jaws, but in space"? Neat stuff. Can you believe that's a job? Shit, I can do that. Watch: Tyler Perry's "Madea Goes to Jail" is a movie about black people with black problems in silly circumstances that white people won't wanna go see. Bam, that'll be $5,000.00. Justin Bieber's "Never Say Never" is about... is that lesbian still around? Fuck, just go see Tron if its still playing. I'll take 2 Gs for that. Gene Shalit's got nothin' on me.
Naota is a detached sixth-grader afflicted by the pangs of puberty. He's fooling around with his brother's ex-girlfriend when a crazed girl on a motor scooter runs him over, brains him with a bass guitar, and moves into his house. This pink-haired girl, Haruko - who claims she's an alien - hurls Naota into the middle of a mega-corporation's secret agenda. Oh, and now giant battling robots shoot from his skull. Mix in mind-bending animation and tunes that echo through your cerebellum to top off the trip that will have you falling hard for FLCL.
