* {{Shotacon}}: Eventually subverted. Mamimi gets over Naota as a sign of both her maturation, as she no longer needs to rely on her perceived relationship with Tasuku; and his maturity, as he no longer wants to be in what seems to him an adult relationship with her to express that he isn't just a kid. She sums this up by calling him "Naota" instead of "Ta-kun" at the end of the series, recognizing his independence and individuality. Haruko leaves Naota behind after telling him he's still only a kid in the last episode, admitting that as he has begun to grow as his own person, she can no longer use him as an N.O. channel. This is a [[GagSeries certain kind of series]], after all, so nothing really comes across as FanService.

Added DiffLines:

* IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming: They're all four-[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mora_(linguistics)#Japanese mora]] abbreviations of a significant phrase. The English version just renders the full phrase--for example, the second episode's Japanese title is "''Fai-Suta''" and the English title is "Fire Starter".

''FLCL'' ([[ItsPronouncedTroPay pronounced "Fooly Cooly"]], [[NoPronunciationGuide not "Eff-ell-see-ell"]]) is a 6-episode {{OVA}} that follows the story of Naota, a young Japanese boy who lives with his father and grandfather. Naota has become annoyed at the inappropriate attention from his brother's ex-girlfriend Mamimi, and he thinks his life and his hometown are boring. His entire life changes when Haruko Haruhara, a [[ManicPixieDreamGirl manic older girl]] runs over Naota with her Vespa. Haruko claims she's an intergalactic police officer, but she wields a Rickenbacker bass guitar with a [[ChainsawGood chainsaw-like]] pullstring motor on the back as a [[StealthPun blunt instrument]] and physically and sexually harasses Naota, making it clear something is weird about her. After his initial contact with Haruko, Naota's forehead begins spawning giant robots, and the insanity increases exponentially from there.

* AdaptationDistillation: One useful fan theory states that the entire plot is just ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' boiled down to six episodes and served hyperactive on a bed of heartwarming comedy. It's a deconstruction ''[[{{Reconstruction}} of a deconstruction]]'', with the MindScrew left intact, and not a single [[FreudWasRight phallic symbol]] removed.

** This might also explain Naota's [[FreudWasRight attraction to Haruko.]] The moment where he embraces her in his room after she returns during episode six can easily be interpreted as Haruko functioning as a stand in for some one else who is no longer in Naota's life.
