    I wasn't sure this was for me...
    The premise sounded ok...but I wasn't sure it was really what I wanted to watch...my tastes in anime tend to gravitate toward the lighter side...as an escape from the daily grind...

    Having finished watching 5 of 13...it is starting to gow on me...I am liking the characters and the artwork is unique among anime today...the animation style is reminiscent of the animated classic "Heavy ...

    Reminds me of the film work of Andrei Tarkovsky
    Per my review title: I love that this anime takes it's time. It enjoys the long shot (long sequences without much action or talking). It goes about it's business much in the way a lot of foreign art house moves of the 50-70s did.

    The sound design is brilliant. I cannot stress this enough. The art, as I am sure you have read by now, is done via a rotoscoping process. I really like it. I've ...

    Give The Flowers of Evil a Chance
    I'll admit that the rotoscoping took a little time to get used to initially, I've grown to enjoy it. In fact, it does make more sense as far as the story.

    In the manga version, Nakamura is cute. Even if she was socially awkward, the boys would ignore that based on appearance alone. In the anime version, you get a more realistic look at the characters and its easier to see why she is considered ...

    I really like it. Different and unique
    This is my first time watching an anime with a different animation. I have to disagree with most people and I must say, it's great that they did this type of animation. Because this anime involves on a teenagers life in school. By making it realistic, they made the animation much more mature. As you can see yourself. Many people has given low ratings only because of animation which shouldn't be ...

    I'm confused is this good or shit?
    The review is only of the first episode and I’m intrigued. The art style is really unusual it’s not good by any means of imagination. I fell like everything they do is the opposite of any other anime I’ve seen. It’s slow but I actually want to keep watching. It’s so creepy that I actually like it but it’s so bad that you have to be a masochist like me to watch and like this anime.

    Expectations expectations.
    I watched this without reading the manga and I really liked the ambient and rotoscoping technique and I thought it fits that ominous and creepy feeling to that story. However, people were hating this probably because they read the manga, which is shoujo style, and expecting the show to be animated purely based on the manga. You might think the anime is low budget but if you pause and look at the ...

  • Why is smth called "the flowers of evil" so utterly pointless
    Should've been a live action movie instead. This has no right to be as long as it is. Chars motivations vague & in the shadows. It tries to talk about sexuality and teen-angst, but only goes midway and then stops. Eerie atmosphere is fitting and draws you in, but gets boring after you get used to it. Many shots & even scenes linger way too long. I bet I atleast skipped 20 minutes of nothing ...

  • Lord, this anime....
    I was not sure about this anime after the first episode. I was a bit put off by the style and the pace. But, something happened. I was infected by the story and the characters and the tension as I continued to watch each episode with anticipation and anxiety. I've heard that the manga is different and, most say, better. Although I'll definitely check that out, the anime itself is a piece of art, ...
