Flip Flappers! contains episodes 1-13 of the anime series which was directed by Kiyotaka Oshiyama. The Premium Edition includes a Chipboard Box, Hardcover Booklet, Lenticular 3D Depth Bookmark, and Art Cards.
As a middle school student, Cocona has been trying to decide what to do with her life. Magical Girl, however, wasn't a career path that she'd ever considered. When suddenly a strange girl named Papika thrusts her into a secret organization called Flip Flap, Cocona's outlook does a radical flip-flop. Her views start to change when she is dragged into an alternate dimension called Pure Illusion where she's charged with gathering crystal shards and fighting strange creatures.
Now, between running missions and facing off against a rival organization, Cocona doesn't have much time to consider alternate career choices. What are these shards, and why is gathering them so important? There's a mystery to be solved and multiple worlds to be saved!

Ratings & Reviews
My Favorite PBS to Date
by Andrew D
I have several Sentai PBS. This one I feel, is the best.
Unlike some of the others, it's not overly large or demands too much shelf space. I have no need for DVDs when BDs are included, so that exclusion saves some space as well.
The chipboard box is beautiful eye candy. The guidebook is thick, very well-made, and full of production details and storyboards. The artcards are also snazzy, nothing lewd or weird.
The series itself is like a whimsical hallucinogenic adventure that fell through an art class. Each episode is dense, and seems to have it's own unique aesthetic. It's a colorful mix of action, goofy comedy, psychological drama, and homages to iconic anime.
The English adaptation was also handled very well with top-notch performances by veterans Luci Christian and Brittney Karbowski.
One of my top 5 animes
by Gerardo Z.
This anime brings a sense of originality back into anime story telling. This Premium box set comes with a beautiful matte shiny finish which shows the lovely colors of the 2 main characters of this show. This show is very fun to watch and family friendly to a point.
Let's Flip Flapping!
by Magic -
I was so happy to hear Flip Flappers would be getting this premium release, and pre-ordered pretty much as soon as it went on sale. Flip Flappers is one of the most original and interesting anime series I've seen in a long time, thick with references and metaphors, and with a delightful coming of age storyline holding it all together. Everything in this special release is beautifully presented, capturing the unique style of the show. The art cards are gorgeous, the book is nice and thick, the bookmarks are whimsical, the box art is colorful and stylish. A must for my magical girl collection.
Lovingly Crafted Experience
Absolutely wonderful. Do yourself a favor and watch this series.
After you do, you won't be able to resist this beautiful box set. Well worth the money; you might as well cut to the chase and just buy it before seeing the series, it's that good!
A great box set for a great series
by Zeta -
Flip Flappers is an overwhelmingly energetic (if often nonsensical) romp through strange dreamscapes, and it's worth watching for the animation alone, whether or not you think the narrative and character arcs are ultimately meaningful or even coherent. (Also, FWIW, the dub is really solid.)
It's immediately obvious that the creators put their hearts and souls into this show, and this premium box set is a fine shrine to their passionate work! The first highlight is the holofoily box: of dubious durability, but VERY pretty. Inside the box is the real treasure, though: the comprehensive, hardcover production booklet! Filled to the brim with pages upon pages of concept art, storyboards, director's notes, and interviews, the booklet provides a stunning amount of insight into the creation of Flip Flappers. It's one of the best extras I've seen, period. Is it worth the $80 increase in MSRP? Hard to say, but if you were already on the fence, then go for it; you won't be disappointed.
A Lovely Shelf Piece and Great Series
by Cosmic Elucidator -
I was a bit skeptical about picking up this LE (vs just the regular BD), I went through with it in the holiday sale and am very impressed with the look and quality of everything.
While the fantastic case design is a great exterior, I think the star of this set is definitely the nearly-300-page hard cover book packed full of concept art, storyboards, production notes, and interviews translated into English. If you are a fan of these kind of insightful material, this is a must-have set!
