The coming-of-age story FLCL Alternative began airing in September of 2018. This original Japanese series is created by Kazuya Tsurumaki. The second Season is called FLCL Progressive while the third Season is called FLCL Alternative. FLCL Alternative, as well as Progressive, aired this year only on Adult Swim’s Toonami block.
The first Season is more than a decade old; it aired last in 2003 on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim. FLCL deals with Robots coming out of children’s heads, e.g., protagonist Kana’s head. Alternative, as the name suggests, was a different take on the series. It deals with Kana and his group of friends and the story of Noata, the aloof boy.
It is known that Noata is the story of show Creator Tsurumaki himself, Noata was born due to Tsurumaki’s childhood experiences. FLCL alternative is a perfect ending to the FLCL series. The sixth episode aired just three days ago, on October 13th. Full Flat as episode 6 was called, is the last of Season 3 to FLCL. Alternative was supposed to be a six-episode series to FLCL.
FLCL Alternative: Will Episode 7 Happen?
As of now, there is no confirmation on it. Season 3 or FLCL Alternative was supposed to be a six-episode one. From FLCL classic to Progressive to Alternative, we saw a sea of change in Kana and her friends Mossan, Hijiri, and Pets life. Full Flat is created by Yutaka Uemura and Hideto Iwai. Given how Season 3 or the finale episode ended, it is safe to say that FLCl is over for now. Neither the showrunners or the voice artists have confirmed anything in regard to an episode 7 or Season 4 coming out anytime soon. Guess we’ll just have to wait for things to unfold eventually.
