  • What, exactly, does Ninamori mean by expressing that "They're fake"?
    • Her finger is through the lens in that scene; Ergo, they're props.
    • It seemed to me to be a subversion of the standard "character learns an important lesson and so becomes more at ease with their self" plot. Usually said character would wear the glasses she'd kept secret, but Ninamori is still childish, if not more so - she keeps the lead in the play even after being called out on it and continues to wear contacts. In fact, maybe the glasses were never real in the first place and were just a way to trick Naota into thinking she's more grown-up than she actually is.

    • Nah. You can see the light reflecting off of the lenses when she's wearing them in Naota's house.
  • In the manga, when Naota and Ninamori run away, a shot of the city seems to show two Medical Mechanica buildings. There being more than one on Earth, and in the same city even, would significantly affect the plot, but this never shows up again. What was that about?
  • One thing that always baffled me from FLCL: What exactly led Kamon to come back to life in episode 4 when he was literally reduced to a corpse?
    • While the stock answer is, "It's FLCL; don't question it," a somewhat feasible one would be that since Haruko was the one who temporarily killed him while she was in the process of making his robot double, and she quite obviously has supernatural powers, her "killing" of him wasn't killing in the traditional sense, and was more just a really deep coma.
    • I understood it as Kamon being severely dehydrated due to being locked up in the closet (i think that we even see him in a bathtub a bit later). The corpse-like appearance can be attributed to the usual exaggeration of the series.
