    FLCL is usually referred to that random anime in which people fight robots coming out of pimples with guitars.
    In making Fire Starter, I wanted to show another side of FLCL where the characters aren't the goofy figures/invincible fighting guitarists they're usually portrayed to be in the usual FLCL AMVs. Where they can be like normal human beings with fears and doubts.
    Fire Starter is about overcoming your fears knowing very well things won't always end with a happy ending.

    -+TECHNICAL STUFF+-

    This video took a lot longer to edit than I thought it would (an extra month or two) leading to a total of 100 to 200 hours of work. A lot of effects we're used in this video. There are a lot of them that might be hard to spot for those who haven't seen FLCL in a while (or not at all). Let me point them out.

    00:59-Naota's head (normally with eyes) was taken from another similar sequence. Why? because I preferred that one.
    01:25-The umbrella normally goes up before showing a smirking Naota.
    01:38-Lord Canti is removed from the top of the school.
    01:40-Mamimi's cigarette originally falls in front of a black background.
    01:53-Pictures falling not included in FLCL.
    01:55-Here Mamimi was taken from a different scene.
    02:19-Here the school is normally not on fire...
    02:21-Lord Canti is removed.
    02:35-Naota's bandage on the forhead was removed.
    02:35-Combo of three different scenes.
    02:48-Naota and Mamimi taken from a different scene and modified.

    ----+SONG LYRICS+----

    You can laugh, you can feel fine
    You can dance with a little twist
    Turn your pretty red-head babe, you forget that I exist
    Can you see yourself in my battered eye
    Would you leave me on the side of the road
    Would you wall crawl up to me, would you talk to me?

    I'm already asking, I'm down on my knees
    I'm already begging, begging you please
    Can you teach me how to fly? (Come on)
    'Cause see I'm scared to die (Come on)
    And I've only just begun to learn to crawl
    Can you teach me how to fight? (Come on)
    You can keep me up all night (Come on)
    Would you be there on the ground if I should fall?
    Fall for you

    Na na na na na na(8x)
    (Yeah)

    Can you teach me how to fly? (Come on)
    'Cause see I'm scared to die (Come on)
    'Cause I've only just begun to learn to crawl
    Can you teach me how to fight? (Come on)
    You can keep me up all night (Come on)
    Would you be there on the ground if I should fall?
    Fall for you (Na na na na na na)
    Fall for you (Na na na na na na)
    Fall for you

    ------+FUN FACTS+------
    Learn to Crawl by Black Lab was on my first self-bought CD - Spider-man the OriginalSoundTrack.
    Fista - Fire Starter is the actual title for the 2nd episode of FLCL. Since I used a lot of episode 2, I found it quite fitting and couldn't resist.
    No fighting scenes were used in the making of this video.
