Everyone below me is mistaken. The manga did come after the anime, and the fact that it has a differing storyline is completely intentional. If you've already seen and loved the series, why would you want the same exact thing rehashed in comic form? Enjoy the creative liberties-both with story and art- taken with the FLCL manga.

Don't listen to negative reviews complaining that it's hard to follow. It is something that should be read while fully awake as it can be abstract at times, so because of this you should avoid any kind of fan translation.  This manga is a good addition to FLCL. It's not exactly a re-telling but not exactly a new story either.  With that said the plot is still interesting. I think they made a good decision to take liberties to tell an altered story. The art is very unique and it convey's the action clearly.  This edition has some color pages, but the majority of the story is in traditional black & white. Lots of additional pages with portraits, character sketches and other bonus stuff is awesome. It's a total love-letter to FLCL fans. If you have 20 dollars, this book is probably  better than getting the first few volumes of something else.

If you liked the anime, you will love this. The art style is crazy, but it is beautiful. This manga is not a rehash of the same story in the anime. It is a unique story based off the original that takes the plot to new levels unexplored in the show. The manga is truly a treat for lovers of FLCL.

Bizarre manga that made absolutely no sense at all. I have no idea what the hell I just read. Robots popping out of the boy's head. The boy killed his father or not? Just strange.

I'm going to have to agree with the 1 star rating titled Rubbish. I couldn't help but read the other reviewers, and to my amazement, they all seem to have rated this book out of principle and personal taste, instead of giving legitimate reasons as to why it is a good book or not. His review states in his opinions clearly why the book was not a good story. If someone wanted an honest review about a book, they would ask someone who read it, and they would hopefully receive an answer other than, "it's good...". This book was poorly thought out (as was it's reviewers thoughts), and left me with more questions than I knew what to do with. Every page was an absolute mess. Childlike lighting and shape, alongside lazy panel-layouts made for a catastrophe of image and non-sequential, unintelligible garbage. This blindly written story excluded answers for events, characters, and overall story! After turning the last page, I felt like a child lost in the translation of some weird adult conversation. I will also agree that the book was unnecessary, and that it was not ok to take it an veer away from the original structure. If you're going to make a comic/manga adaptation of something that once was, make sure to do it right and accurately... Not just that, but to attempt to justify it's messy miscommunication with the original story by saying, " If you've already seen and loved the series, why would you want the same exact thing rehashed in comic form?", is not going to excuse this book, if you asked me. If the story continued from anime to manga, that would have been fine, but if it's an adaptation, there is little excuse to mutilate the original story. Look at book-to-movie adaptations like Watchmen; they butchered the story, no argument about it. There's no room to justify it when it's the other way around; movie-to-book. The main bullet-point of this review, is that this book is far from anything I would ever indulge in ever again; far from anything I would recommend to anyone. This book is hard to look at, hard to follow, and its story is confusing and horribly misconstrued. I feel that blindly liking something, just because it's manga, is an opinion based in principle alone. Give this book some real reasons as to why it's good, or why it's bad. That's the point of a book review. Also, some grammatical correction should always come into play. If you can't think critically about the way you write, then you can't think critically about the way you read either.

I don't have very much to say about this book, other than the fact that it completely differs from the TV series. The panel layout is simply terrible in the sense that it's just a jumble of images that poorly connect or even remain consistent. It's really easy to get lost in the pages, and not in the good way that draws the reader into the story, but in the bad way that makes it hard to discern or understand the pictures. Many of the characters from the show are gone... it's as if they never happened, and the events that take place don't make sense! I don't understand why they would have released this after the TV show aired, because the show was perfect the way it was. It didn't need a manga, or rather, one that has nothing to do with anything. This book is hardly entertaining, and could have used a much better writer/artist to give it an actual consistent story; one that shared the same story as its television series.
