    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.

    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 ...

    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.

    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 ...
