Kana’s life was rather mundane until the day a Mecha fell from the sky, along with a strange woman named Haruko. Haruko’s plans for Kana and her friends involve the force known as “ATOMSK”. Kana will have to risk everything to decide whether she should help, but she doesn’t really have a choice. Both FLCL: Alternative and FLCL: Progressive are co-produced by anime studio – Production I.G (the same studio behind the original FLCL series) and Adult Swim.

On 31st March this year, Toonami unexpectedly premiered the first episode of FLCL Alternative in a sneak preview in Japanese audio with English subtitles as part of this year’s Japanese dub April Fools’ Day prank.
