    After producing a long line of sad and depressing drama videos, I really wanted to create something different. My fifth video was a step in the right direction, but it didn't turn out exactly the way I had planned. So I had to try to do comedy once again.

    Of all my works, I probably had the most fun with this one. FLCL is such a great anime! The animation is pleasure to the eye and the soundtrack performed by The Pillows kicks ass. I read that the music of The Pixies was one of their main inspirations. Hell, they even have a song named after The Pixies' bassist. And a good one it is! :D

    The idea should be quite clear: seeing what's happening around him, Naota is questioning his sanity. Aliens riding Vespas, robots coming out of his head, suddenly growing cat ears, government officials with giant eyebrows... Enough to drive anyone mad!

    I hope you like the video, I put quite an amount of effort into it. If you have the time, leave some comments so that I can try to improve as an editor.
