Mixed up in this is an all-powerful force known as "ATOMSK," a gorgeous vintage car… and a certain Vespa Scooter.

An English-subtitled simulcast of the Japanese version will stream on Adult Swim's website.

FLCL Alternative, the second new series, is slated for September. In Japan, the anime will debut in theatrical screenings, with FLCL Alternative opening first on September 7, and FLCL Progressive opening on September 29.
