    not my cup of tea due to sloppy animation
    I have read the manga, and i was actually looking forward to this anime, since i was particularly intrigued by the psychological theme that was being repeatedly emphesised. So as far as the story goes, it is definitely something worth taking a look at, either through the manga or the anime.

    This topic is where we will have the big polarization of opinions, because there are some that argue that ...

    Just give it some time
    I will say it's very different but I like very different.That what got me reading the Flowers of Evil. In the first place. My recommendation would be to read the Manga first then watch the anime and gave it some time. Yes it's slow and completely different from manga,But you see the flower's starting to bloom and that thing's going get really screw up for everyone next episode.So just gave it ...

    I dont care about the animation, it is just too unrealistic.
    I love how they without too many words brought so much depths of emotions. I just never understood how he could run away from someone he once adored. I understand that maybe he was just in love with the idea of her. But this "im not worthy" idea is just overused and we all have dark secrets, but come on girls are practically and sometimes literally throwing themselves at you and you just run away ...

    A GREAT story with mediocre o poor exicution
    OK first this is a GREAT story and is worth wading thorough the problems to get through to the meaty gritty insides.
    Watch it for a well written story

    TRY to ignore --
    Poor rotoscopic animation ( rotoscoping is great but this is only a poor effort on a difficult process.)

    Black outs Yes this has many many minutes of nothing or barely nothing and only audio. This is fine for effect ...

    aku no hana not an good adaptation
    rotoscoping is bad for anime and the way it is written so dark gives it a Stephen King to the tenth power feel not anything like the magna. In the magna from the start you get a troubled youth feel to it, just a love triangle of three broken kids. there is the Japanese culture aspect of one bad mistake and your life is over in the story that's hard to get thru but its a good story. but the anime ...

    The title of the show explains everything
    I first read the manga before to watch the anime, but there was a part where I couldn't take it anymore, so I stopped my reading. When I saw the anime is released on Chrunchyroll, I thought that maybe it's better so I watched it. The graphic is original. The characters' expression a bit ok. It's similar to the manga so I skipped some eps, but I've noticed that the anime is slower. They put longer ...

    What Have They Done?
    As a fan of the manga, I'm extremely disappointed with this. What they were trying for is really beyond me. Trying to take the seriousness of the story and follow suit making the characters more realistic? Absolute failure. They don't even come close to Shuzo Oshimi's original design. In fact it appears they forgot how to animate. I would have no real issue with making the characters slightly more ...

    Uglification is seldom an improvement
    And it's not in this case either.

    The manga and the collection of poems that this story comes from are both titled "FLOWERS of Evil." That title suggests that for some people beauty has a fascination that outweighs any perceived evil in the heart of its possessor. Search out the manga of this story. Notice that Nakamura-san, the woman who ensnares the MC early on, is very pretty--and very ...

    Just a little story please.
    I am not sure what to say about this. I can live with The graphics though it takes getting used to, but I won't watch anymore because quite frankly they gave you no story at all in the the first episode. You could literally start at episode 2 and not have missed a thing.
