    Super Cocona Sisters??
    Just the first episode in, but here's what I came away with...

    Flip Flappers seems to fit in the same kind of niche of "headtrip" anime that FLCL does or did, even down to that same kind of bright, deceptively simple art style. Underneath of that apparent simplicity is a strong focus on action and movement over detailed still shots, which lends the whole thing a very 'living', visceral, 'alive' ...

    A Superlative Magical Girl Show that Deserves to be a Luminary of the Genre
    Food for thought: how does a show survive the test of time? Franchises inspire remembrance, as do genre staples, but what about shows that are neither? What makes them stand tall? I bring this up because I have the sense that Flip Flappers will be a show that is remembered by Magical Girl fans long after ending. I can't say it'll be one of the greats, but Flip Flappers is downright great and it ...

    Wait what genre is this again?
    If FLCL had a love child with Madoka Magicka, that child learned to draw by watching One Punch Man, and learns sexuality through watching Kill la Kill you would end up with FLIP FLAPPERS. Honestly I had a hard time figuring out what kind of story it would tell (I'm at episode 4), and honestly it's so refreshing. I didn't feel lost or have a hard time following the story, but it doesn't just throw ...

    Pure Illusion! True Love?
    The implications of imminent Shoujo Ai are not just tasteful, but remarkably beautiful as well. The characters are developing in ways that inspire me to my very core. Everything is colorful and animated with love. The voice actresses compel me as if this bizarre story is reality. The music is more than just a background, making the emotions I feel while witnessing this anime more intense in all ...

    An crazy, amazing ride
    Flip flappers is a wonderfully strange anime detailing the adventures of two girls, Cocona and Papika, in the alternate dimension of "Pure Illusion". This show first caught my interest because of its beautiful art and fluid animation. And on that front it 100% delivered. Each episode had its own style, ranging from the surreal alice-in-wonderland world of episode 2 to the exciting mad max world ...

    A superb anime, somewhat trippy examination of different realities, good character development, excellent animation and story.
    This anime examines the relationship"s" between two girls (Cocona, the straight solidly grounded honor student, and, Papika, a wild, touchey-feeley, strong emotional girl) as the move through alternate realities (called "pure illusion"). You get the feeling that both girls represent different sides if the same person. The realities each test the girl's sanity and in episode 7 examines the ...

    Yup, I'm that kind of guy.
    Literally just making a review to give it five stars.

    At best I can say that the atmosphere is what really brings this together for me; and that includes the opening and ending. The cheeriness of the show is wonderful, but when you couple that with the sometimes creepy imagery and concepts, you get an unerving feeling in the back of your head when watching. And I love it.

    The Perfect Anime Exist
    If anyone has ever seen Gigguk's video, you will understand the title.

    This anime is perfect when it comes to visual storytelling, and even nails dialogue a lot too. There is a lot of people that will be able to not only relate to the characters, but be able to feel this anime, and no words can describe that. The deep themes ...

    This show is LEGENDARY
    Sweetest show I've seen in years. I love the art style and the events that take place are extremely entertaining. This show is for people who like anime with good story yet a lot of mystery to it. The two main characters, Papika and Cocona have really odd yet cute interactions with the outside world and how they cope with issues is more than unique. 10/10 Legendary
