Liberal comedians like Seth MacFarlane and Bill Maher being stunned and sad and wondering how casual misogyny and Islamophobia led to Trump getting elected POTUS is the greatest irony since Alanis bitched about rain on her wedding day.

Trailer Listed for FLCL Sequel's Anime Expo Panel

If you’re as eager as everyone else is to see what Production I.G is cooking up for its followups to 2003 anime FLCL, well, hopefully you plan on attending Anime Expo this year. An FLCL 2 & 3 panel is lined up for July 2, and the description lists a trailer as part of the programming.

In addition to the promised trailer, the panel will feature a poster giveaway and production announcements. Adult Swim’s Jason DeMarco will be on hand with Haruka voice actress Mayumi Shintani and FLCL creator and director Kazuya Tsurumaki.

Here’s the project description from the initial announcement:

Created in 2000, FLCL told the tale of Naota, a 12-year-old boy who met a woman that would forever change his life…whether he liked it or not.

In the new season of FLCL, many years have passed since Naota and Haruhara Haruko shared their adventure together. Meanwhile, the war between the two entities known as Medical Mechanica and Fraternity rages across the galaxy. Enter Hidomi, a young teenaged girl who believes there is nothing amazing to expect from her average life, until one day when a new teacher named Haruko arrives at her school. Soon enough, Medical Mechanica is attacking her town and Hidomi discovers a secret within her that could save everyone, a secret that only Haruko can unlock.

But why did Haruko return to Earth? What happened to her Rickenbacker 4001 she left with Naota? And where did the human-type robot ‘Canti’ go?
