Brad Rice: Happy Tuesday, readers! It’s another week of light releases, but I do have one recommendation for you: FLCL the manga.
While the anime was so profoundly visual and exclusive to the format of animation, the manga captures a different set of sensibilities about teenage life that warrants a read. I picked up these volumes a while back at a garage sale, and idly read them on a rainy day. They didn’t prove to be my absolute favorite volumes, but I don’t think I’ll ever get rid of them. I’ll crack them open on other rainy days, like today, and see if the story has any new meaning for me.
