FLCL Manga & Anime

   Naota's life isn't simple: he lives with his eccentric father and grandfather in a two-story house above a family-owned bakery in a town marked by a gigantic factory at its heart. The factory looks suspiciously like a hand iron, replete with a steam release at the top -- not the most typical landmark. Life is already strange enough, but to top it off, his older brother's ex-girlfriend starts making extremely suggestive passes at him ... and an impish, playful alien smacks him in the head with a bass guitar and then infuses herself into his family.

 Naoto is a lonely boy in a lonely town living a lonely life amidst utter chaos. His father's a perv, his grandfather a nut, his brother ran off to seek riches in America, and his brother's dumb ex-girlfriend won't leave him alone. Now from beyond the stars drops an impish defender send forth to stop alien robots from destroying the Earth. Where do the alien robots come from? Well, from Naota's forehead for starters. From the twisted mind that brought us End of Evangelion comes his bizarre tale of adolescence in a world gone bad.
