winter15-foshHoly cow this episode! THIS EPISODE was flappin amazing! If you aren’t completely sold on this series yet then you have a couple of screws loose, but at the same time I totally understand if this was the final nail in the coffin for dropping it; however me and Skylion are having the time of our lives with this series.

    I’m really enjoying this series. Every now and then you need an anime where the creators just cut loose and let their imaginations run wild.

    • skylion says:

      Yeah, I agree. I had to rave about it. Just from this episode, it looks like, if they can keep the through-line of a nice overplot and then no waver with Kokona’s emotional narrative tying in and at the nearly the same pace, then they can do whatever “weirdness of the week” thing they want. Just as long as it has some grounding, right?

    • Foshizzel says:

      AGREED! That is the biggest selling point for me on Flip Flappers with the animators getting to be damn creative!

      I can’t believe some people find this series to be meh and boring? Ya’ll crazy! Why can’t you find enjoyment in something visually stunning without being sooooooo worried about story ? Ah well can’t win everyone over I suppose.

    And that’s what makes this series work: the fact that it can do whatever it wants but then it uses characters like cocona to anchor the story and prevent it from being void of characterization. I also like how this ep gave us context about what happened at the end of ep 1 without outright explaining it. When papika enters the portal yayaka created, we see familiar looking robots. This implies that they were the ones that attacked them in ep one and that their attack may have only been a warning of sorts to subdue papika and cocona and that’s it; perhaps even to steal the fragment they obtained at the end of that ep. Again, we are made to piece things together and i like that about flip flappers. This is definitely in my top 5 shows of the season right now

    • Foshizzel says:

      Yeah it did explain a few things without hitting you over the head, but at the same time there is a huge majority that need to be bonked over the head over and over and over again just to understand things! Yeah I don’t claim to know EVERYTHING that is going on but come on? Would knowing the entire plot NOW really help? That would be like knowing whats in Erens basement in the first episode of Attack on Titan.

      Flip Flappers is my #1 <3 SO GOOD.

      • sonicsenryaku says:

        hahaha exactly; there’s this instant gratification thing that some viewers of media just have. It’s like “i have to know everything now”…where’s your sense of discovery you know. Sure there are some plot details your average viewer doesnt mind knowing, but that’s only when the plot makes it clear that it’s keeping that a secret (like eren’s basement). Storytelling should want invoke viewers to put a story together based on what they are being shown, not just what they are being told and i think many people have gotten used to the latter

    Nah, It’s More like uh…This One, I Mean Really!

    And also, I was thinking of this show is more of like this…Well, Except for More Magical and more Girly
    That is!

      Fist of the North Star was heavily influenced by Mad Max, and as I said in the podcast, Mad Max was heavily influenced by Westerns…

      Yeah, 3hz pretty much got everyone that worked on Dandy to work on FliFla, so it’s gonna get the comparison.

    • Foshizzel says:

      Indeed! Skylion is right a lot of movies, tv series and even anime have been influenced by Mad Max~

      Yeppers! A lot of people that created Space Dandy have their hands on Flip Flappers even some Trigger and PA Works animators are working on it.
