    This Show ... This Show ...
    I cannot explain my love of this show. There are entire episodes in which nothing happens and yet I can't stop watching. I love the rotoscope and the beautiful backgrounds ... and the ending theme is like the worst acid trip ever. Definitely not for everybody. Also, YAMADA!!!!!!!

    The art style is the best part of this anime
    The art of this anime is the best component. It paints a setting with run-down buildings and old infrastructures. It is realistic. It's symbolic and a representation of the decaying and unsightly human heart.

    The characters are very developed. This is a very artistic show, not for audience who only seek superficial entertainment.

    It's also refreshing to see an anime that doesn't have random ...

    An anime so different, you start to wonder what all other anime is for
    There is no shortage of plot descriptions for this one, so I'll skip that. Instead let me just say that this is the best anime of the year so far, and one of the best ever in my book.

    Finally an anime with no fan service, realistic characters and no cute animals. I want that too on occasion, but different is refreshing sometimes.

    The atmosphere is dark and a bit gritty, and the pace can be ...

    Amazing show! Definitely worth checking out!
    I randomly stumbled across this show and nearly instantly became hooked on it. It's very unique, atmospheric, and deals with some very interesting themes and characters. There are some incredibly tense moments and the relationships between the characters is very intense.

    Top notch anime- rotoscoping or not.
    In spite of, or perhaps because of the rotoscoping, FLOWERS is one of the best series so far this season. The animation style lends a "real but not real" air to things that increase the feeling of dread and... existential ennui? that permeates the show. Character behaviors are nuanced, even for supporting characters. Characters that would be flat in other shows feel more real in FLOWERS. It's an ...

    Unusual Style, but it works to create a moody feel.
    Loved the feel of the anime.

    Some reviewers have stated that the style is significantly different from the manga. I understand the disappointment that can follow after your expectations are not met. However, having not read the manga beforehand, I have to say I enjoyed this anime. The backgrounds are superb and the animation, though lacking in detail, shows movement and expressions very ...

    This is one of the five best shows on crunchyroll, without a doubt.
    If you're searching for something truly great, artistic, with some self-aware intellectual and social value, you've come to the right place. This is one of my ten favorite TV series, animated or not, of all time. I recommend it in the highest terms and I guarantee you will be provoked in some way.

    The main two reasons I give this high praise, and my recommendation, is because of two things: ...

    Compelling and extraordinary
    This series was different than anything I'd ever watched before. The animation fit the story perfectly and was as unique as the characters. However, sometimes "different" animation can get tiresome or annoying after a couple of episodes, but that was not the case with this series. This story presents an extremely engaging plot that is relentless and truly keeps the viewer on their toes. The themes ...

    An absolute masterpiece!
    This has to be one of the most amazing shows I have ever watched. It is pure art. First of all, the animation is absolutely beautiful. I love what they did with the rotoscoping, it made the show look almost lifelike. Also on top of that the backgrounds were absolutely breathtaking. The characters were also amazing. Really engaging and interesting personalities. The story honestly made me stressed ...

    few people can relate, those who do will treasure it
    I was just looking for a fresh anime to watch, randomly find this. The art style was the first thing that struck me, I don't think any other style would suit it though, the facial expressions convey emotion like a normal anime couldn't, this had me cringing to watch certain scenes as they were very awkward to watch...

    the speed of the anime is very "all over the place", they go from slow ...
