    Sir_Jamesalot's seal of approval.
    This show is incomplete but still very good.

    I thought the visual art was refreshing and the music was insane.
    Every episode is loaded with suspense, for a couple of episodes the tension got to the point where I needed to force myself to watch it.

    By far one of the most memorable animes I have seen in a long time

    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 ...

    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

    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!

    A breath of fresh air
    In an era of anime where slice of life and goofy 'moe' influenced shows dominate the market, we're truly entering an age in which everything blends together. Looking at a list of anime to watch, or manga to read, it's easy to find a sense of deja vu when watching an "episode 1".

    Enter Aku no Hana.
    Rotoscoping is nothing new. It's been done, and quite frankly, done better. But for a serialized ...

    Realistic and artistic without being pretentious, exceptional anime.
    I haven't seen a show with such an accurate and real-feeling portrayal of humanity since The Wire.

    I guess it's too pretentious for many people and if you aren't yet sick of endless Shonen/Harem shows then I'd stay clear, but if you're looking for something unique this is it. And the ending theme for this show is amazing.

    Social taboo's and great drama
    Great art style and i love the attack on the social hive mind in this show. Give you a real look at what people really think and what they want to deny in there own minds because everyone is so judgmental in our society. Must watch if you're into physiology or what goes threw peoples minds.

    Absolutely Amazing!!!
    This has to be one of the most intriguing anime series I have ever watched. Being both dark and twisted with the added effect of the rotorscoping, it all mixes together to create an atmosphere that will send chills down your spine. An excellent series so far and cannot wait for the coming episodes.
    I recommend anyone looking for an anime that is different from others to watch Flowers of Evil!!

    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 ...

    Amazing work of art.
    I haven't been so excited about a show since Breaking Bad. Flowers of Evil is an atmospheric examination of the dark side of humanity. The rotoscoping style of the series does take a little bit to warm up to, but during scenes of intense emotion it becomes clear why this style of animation suits the story of Flowers of Evil.

    I highly recommend Flowers of Evil if you are looking for something ...
