FLCL cover boy on vespa

"Nothing amazing ever happens here", so starts Fooly Cooly or FLCL, written by Gainax with art by Hajime Ueda.  Of course nothing does, the end. Well, actually quite a bit happens from a girl using a guitar as a weapon to odd objects coming out of the main character's head to the just plain strange.  I first saw the animation on Adult Swim back in 2003.  Funny quirky characters, simple block art that allows for the lacy aspect of the characters to clearly convey their emotions.  I don't know if you'd call it a plot so much as a stream of consciousness.  In library land we'd call it a bildungsroman (a coming of age story) but you'll have to check it ourself, its short just two volumes or complete in the omnibus volume.  Enjoy!
