From the publisher
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.
FLCL (Furi Kuri) was published in tankoubon (graphic novel) form in 2000 by Kodansha in Japan. There was also a hit FLCL anime series from Gainax and Hideaki Anno (who also teamed up on Neon Genesis Evangelion) and several fascinatingly enigmatic FLCL text novels by scenarist Yoji Enokido.
