    Original and intense
    This one falls on both sides of the line between art and entertainment. A lot of people seem to be sensitive to its dark subject matter and style, though I can't say I relate at all. If you want to see a deeply original and mind-bending specimen of animation, be sure to put it in your queue.

    This is a rotoscoped drama. The story is very psychological.
    If you are expecting giant robots, fancy boys wearing gloves, or swords that turn into big breasted females or something, this show lacks that.

    It is actors that has been rotoscoped/drawn over. I like it. I want to make something like this someday.

    Incredible story that is very deep. A bit too much teenage angst for me at times as I am too old for this, but otherwise it is very ...

    Amazing! A Masterpiece that has become one of my all-time favorites!
    I had absolutely no expectations going into this one. I hadn't read, or even heard of the manga. The title and posters were intruiging as well as the quick plot synopsis. After the first episode I had to see where it was going. After the second episode I was hooked. I love the animation; the style fits perfecly with the mood the creators were trying to set. The music and pacing were spot on as ...

    Intense, compelling, and artistic
    I didn't quite know what to expect going into the show; rotoscoping has always been really hit or miss in animation (Ralph Bakshi on Line One), but in this case, I think it was the right choice given the subject matter. The awkwardness and heightened drama in the script really popped because of the naturalistic acting and realistic look, foregoing the usual "too pretty for real life" character ...

    dont be quick to judge
    I found myself going wtf at the artwork but the story was nice for a day marathon - not sure if I would have kept up on it if I watched weekly. Story doesnt seem to have ended by the last episode. Foreshadowing teasers. 4/5

    F.o.E. - Unique and Disturbing
    Flowers of Evil is an anime unlike any other. It is so far removed from the typical that it almost becomes an important anime to bear the discomfort of watching. There aren't any of the things one comes to expect from an anime, even in the animation- which is incredible even if you grow to dislike the storyline. It is both a refreshing and shocking experience.
    I won't lie, it's tough to ...

    Intenso y cautivante!
    Esta serie tiene un tono de lastima hacia los personajes, pero los personajes son tan intensos y las situaciones tan inverosimiles, entre mas extraño se vuele todo mas se quiere ver lo que pasa. Es un momento de la vida que todos pasamos en la juventud, el no comprender, conocer quienes somos. Pero aqui el un marco extremo pero muy claro y sumamente entretenido. Enorme recomendacion!

    Flower of a another name
    When I first started watching this anime. I felt it was dry and a bit lifeless. But as the old saying goes you cant judge a book by its cover. Here you find that here. Its anime with lots of drama, twists and strangeness. It raise the question about the nature of evil and how that works. Also tugs at core of who we are and asks are we who we appear to be or is there some else lurking.

    Brooding, Psychological, Unconventional
    In spite of being yet another anime / manga about grade school life, Flowers of Evil is far from a typical anime. It uses rotoscoped animation to develop characters through vivid, nuanced facial expressions, as well as a somber, slow pace of action that puts emphasis on setting and scenery. The result is remarkably true-to-life feeling, and well suited to the story, much of which takes place in ...
