    A modern psychological roller coaster.
    Getting past the art is completely worth it. I appreciate the animation style, but if you get used to it, you get to enjoy one of the best psychological thrillers of anime produced in a long time. It's gripping, mocks japanese culture and society, all while creating an original atmosphere to anyone who's ever experienced the angst and pressure of the common teenager. The character development is a ...

    Very good, suspensful and traumatic
    The show started out slow, but as you REALLY get into it, you realize its very deep and scary. The amount of stress and anxiety this show gives when you watch it is crazy. Mental trauma should be a notable side-effect to watching this.

  • Dark and atmospheric
    Flowers of evil is nothing less than a masterpiece. The storytelling reminds me of Natsuo Kirino's best work. Enter it with an open mind even if you don't like the animation at first. The bleak colors and rotorscoping are deliberate artistic choices and really ad to the atmosphere of the story. The pacing may be slow but the characters are real personalities that grow on you. This gives some ...

    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 ...

    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!!

    Watch this show!!!!!
    It may not be action packed, but this is one of the best anime I have ever seen. The art style is something to get used to, but once you do, you realize that it matches the story perfectly. I was hesitant at first because of the art, but by the end of the first episode I literally had chills because of what Takao Kasuga had done and the reaction of the dark, twisted Sawa Nakamura.

    In ...

  • Flowers of Evil is a breath of fresh air
    Flowers of Evil is incredibly unique. Give it a chance! A lot of people are turned off by the rotoscoping, but after a few episodes you realize why this art style is chosen- it synchronizes great with the dark, tense atmosphere and greatly adds to climactic moments throughout the storyline.

    This is a very unique anime and a lot of anime viewers are turned off simply because they are too young ...

  • Heavy and Twisted but Still Realistic
    Despite the mediocre ratings I'm glad I gave Flowers of Evil a chance. The story is heavy, mature, and a bit twisted; brave and far-fetched but not unrealistic. You know what you want to see, but understand from real life experience why it's not so easy. The art direction and music is on point as well.

    I was really going to quit but..
    I was totally going to quit this anime but
    . Rotoscoping works here and the characters look great. I don't know the whole story but this could really be the best of the season for me.

    I look forward to every new episode
    I'm new to watching anime, so I don't have a lot to compare this to yet. I absolutely love this though. It seems people either love this or hate it without much in-between. It leaves me feeling a bit creeped out after every episode, but wanting more! For that reason I love it. The music is scary and adds a great touch to this twisted story.
