    Clearly not for every Anime fan...
    This Anime is not for everyone. It has a very specific target audience. It is for the most part, a real life drama with a LOT of sprinkled metaphor in the series. If you read a lot of books, and prefer social outcast or other points of view story lines you're going to love this series. The whole point of this series the "abnormal", or for everyone to not be the same. The Anime delivers that ...

    Painfully interesting
    I saw this anime at first and figured it would be just another supernatural one. I was wrong. I sat through the first episode through its realism. It strangely horrified me. The combo of the art style followed up by the soundtrack puts a sense of dread within me. No anime has ever done that. Ever. I can't sit through the second episode now because I feel sick inside from the entire premise of the ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    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.

    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 ...

    Wow blew my mind away
    So I basically watched all 13 episodes in one sitting. Talk about very different yet very interesting. I had know idea what to expect next. Really gets your mind thinking. The ending song is really creepy but you want to keep listening to it. I just kept watching episode after episode, now waiting for the second season. Totally wasn't what I expected and really took a huge liking to it.

    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 ...

    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 ...
