Other Info:
Like all Tokyopop manga, the two books are the standard tankoban size.  Each volume is printed right to left and contain no colour pages.  The first volume is 176 pages long, and the second is 208 pages long.

Both volumes of the FLCL manga are available from bookshops, comic shops, online stores and sci-fi retailers.  If your local bookshop hasn't got the manga in stock, you can always ask them to order it in for you.  The best help you can give a bookshop employee to find titles you want to order is the ISBN number.  The ISBN is an international cataloguing code given to each new book on publishing, and makes

tracking down and ordering books a doddle for book shop staff.  The ISBN numbers for FLCL are as follows:

Vol 1: 1-5918-2396-X
Vol 2: 1-5918-2397-8

Expect to pay 6.99 per volume.  One of the best places to buy manga is online, and Amazon, Anime-On-Line and Play.Com stock both volumes of FLCL for prices below the usual RRP.

In recent years public libraries have been increasing their stocks of manga, and there's a good possibility that they might have FLCL at your local library.  Manga is often found in the Young Adult or Sci-Fi sections, and catalogue computer systems in the library will show you if they have it or not.  Hiring books from a library is free, and registering at a library is also free so it is by far the most economical way to read manga.  If the your local library doesn't have it you can order it from another library in the same district or from a different district.  The cost of this service varies from district to district, but is usually no more than 2.  Ask at your local library for further details.
