I showed the FLCL dub, to my 8 year old male cousin when I was on vacation. I went to him and was like, "Hey, want to watch something cool?"

He agreed and we sat down and watched it from start to finish. He really fucking enjoyed it.

At the time I was in love with Haruko (and I still am). I wasn't acting weird or anything... I was just laying on the couch watching and he was reclining in the chair...

During the Ride on Shooting Star of what must have been the 4th or 5th episode out of nowhere he hits me with, "Do you like her?"

"Do I like who?"
"That girl."
"Oh, her? Uh, yeah. Sure. She's pretty awesome."
He sort of slyly grins and I'm like, "Wait, what? What do you mean? I like the character. Don't you?"

And he says yes. Then we continue watching. I figure he was developing a crush on her himself and sort of wanted to affirm in his own way that this was alright... It's in the family genes, I guess.

That or he has some sort of fucking mystic eyes of waifu perception.
