Subtitled Version of FLCL 2 and 3 Delayed Until November

Subtitled Version of FLCL 2 and 3 Delayed Until NovemberThe first episode of FLCL Progressive just hit Adult Swim in English-dubbed form—but if you’re holding out to see the series in Japanese, prepare to wait a while.

Seasons 2 and 3, aka Progressive and Alternative, were originally slated to stream subbed online while the dubbed version aired on TV, but those plans seem to have been nixed.

Sayeth Toonami:

Out of respect for our Japanese partners, we are pushing back the release of FLCL : Progressive and Alternative English subs to November to align with the release of the Japanese language versions. At that time the English subs for all episodes of FLCL Progressive and Alternative will be made available in the US on all adult swim platforms. Sorry for the change of plans! International releases often have lots of moving parts, and we want to remain good partners to our friends in Japan. For now, we hope you enjoy the English language premiere of FLCL : Progressive tonight at midnight on Toonami.

FLCL Progressive and Alternative are set to hit Japan in September as theatrical events.
