Moving to YMMV.
* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: This series is almost completely unknown in Japan, even amongst otaku of the time. American anime fans, however, love it. That Creator/AdultSwim pushed it relentlessly (see above) didn't hurt. Creator/{{Funimation}}'s decision to bring the show back into print was treated as a Very Big Deal.

** Mamimi for Creator/StephanieSheh (which would be solidified with her roles as [[Manga/{{Naruto}} Hinata]], [[Anime/EurekaSeven Eureka]], [[Manga/{{Bleach}}, and to some 2010s audiences, [[Manga/SailorMoon Usagi Tsukino/Sailor Moon]]), to a lesser extent – before this, her only VA credits were bit parts.

* ColbertBump: Music/ThePillows. Oh, so much...much… * DoingItForTheArt: Tsurumaki stated that the reason FLCL exists was because he and his staff had become burnt out from making ''[[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion End of Evangelion]]'', so they wanted to do something to help them blow off steam.

*** Creator/MelissaFahn as Eri Ninamori * KeepCirculatingTheTapes: Not the case anymore, but the show fell into this in North America for a few years due to a combination of its continuing popularity and the licensor (Synch-Point) folding not long after releasing a [[UpdatedRerelease complete boxset with additional extras]].

*** Creator/MelissaFahn as Eri Ninamori * KeepCirculatingTheTapes: Not the case anymore, but the show fell into The English dub for this in North America for a few years due to a combination of its continuing popularity and the licensor (Synch-Point) folding not long after releasing a [[UpdatedRerelease complete boxset with additional extras]].

Luckily, Creator/{{Funimation}} decided to re-release the series may be the only one ''not'' set in pre-Meiji times to keep characters' names in Eastern style. This threw off the voice actors a lot, as shown in the outtakes. The manga flips their names to Western style, as does this site. * There was one animation director at Gainax who, for whatever reason, absolutely ''loved'' Eri Ninamori. He insisted he be allowed to helm every scene where Ninamori appears. This is why the times she's on a single DVD screen look and give it feel similar to each other, even if the entire rest of an episode is made in a completely different style. ** He wrote some notes (that were translated for the US DVD) for Episode 3's back cover. It's… kinda disturbing. ** This helps to explain why "Full Swing" – the only episode where Ninamori is absent – feels so "off" compared to everything else, even considering its first ever (American) UsefulNotes/BluRay release. Similarly, after Creator/{{Tokyopop}} shut down its American division, Creator/DarkHorseComics released an omnibus edition of the manga.

Creator/HideakiAnno himself provided the cat's voice. ** Given some wonderful {{Lampshading}} in the series itself, when Naota's talking about the school play: --->'''Naota:''' All I play is a cat. * The enormous "animated" hand in Ep 5 is actually a digitally altered video of the director's hand.

** In tree English dub, there are several examples that range from the obvious to the obscure. For instance: *** [[http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0329361/ Barbara Goodson]] as Naota
