The spring anime season has a new addition as Flowers of Evil takes root in Crunchyroll’s lineup!


Flowers of Evil (known in Japanese as "Aku no Hana") is set to broadcast every Monday starting on April 8, at 9:30 a.m. Pacific Time for its premium members. Free members will be able to view this series one (1) week after initial Crunchyroll broadcast. 



Background and story:


Based on the manga by Shuzo Oshimi, FLOWERS OF EVIL anime will feature the voice talents of Mariya Ise (in the role of Sawa Nakamura) and Yoko Hikasa (in the role of Nanako Saeki). Ms. Ise is notably known for her performances in hit series such as Hunter x Hunter, Bodacious Space Pirates, and Durarara!!, while Ms. Hikasa has a similar list of accolades with majors roles in Dog Days, K-ON!, and Inu X Boku Secret Service.  This show will also mark the inaugural appearance of Shinichiro Ueda, as our other protagonist: Takao Kasuga.


FLOWERS OF EVIL revolves around Takao Kasuga, who is caught stealing Nanako Saeki's gym clothes by Sawa Nakamura whose cold attitude makes her generally disliked by everyone. In exchange for her silence, he makes a ‘contract’ with her, in which he must abide by all of her unreasonable demands. Initially torturous, Kasuga wants out until one day when things start to change between them...”


FLOWERS OF EVIL will be available in the following territories: U.S.A, Canada, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Denmark, Finland, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, and Central & South America.
