T-Meter Title | Year
100% FLCL: FLCL (TV, 2003-2018) It's got an incredible Japanese alt-rock soundtrack from the band The Pillows. Its editing is frenetic. Its characters interact in extremes of manic, moody, or forlorn. Its plot kinda doesn't matter. - Paste Magazine EDIT

Its duels and characters are beautifully animated. But Champloo's music is scary good. - Paste Magazine EDIT
