    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 ...

    Approach this with an open mind.
    I'm finding that generally speaking, fans of the manga dislike this anime. That is because though the stories are similar(of course), the rotoscoping is the only the only thing separating this adaption from it's source material. Frankly put:

    -The pacing is different(the anime being a lot more slowly and oddly paced that than the manga)
    -The anime is A LOT darker overall
    -The manga better ...

    Macaulay Culkin in "The Good Son".
    The Home Alone franchise consisted of movies that made Macaulay Culkin a superstar but have you watched the infamous movie, "The Good Son"? It stars an older torcherous Culkin and ironically reflects the torcher of Macaulay's career and life.

    Flowers of Evil is The Good Son's twin sister.

    The Good Son features your favorite childhood star, Culkin, doing very mean things to ...

    Didn't like the animation at first, but it has grown on me
    Having greatly enjoyed the manga, I was really looking forward to this anime. The first episode however made me think that everything was ruined forever. I hated the animation style, it reminded me of cheesy 80s animation like Fire and Ice and Heavy Metal, which while not at all bad, I did not think had a place in anime. 4 episodes in however I have changed my mind, and I actually think that if ...

    When emotion, story and details in movement TRUMP the usual anime character design
    This is NOTHING like the manga. If you can't get past the manga, stop reading.

    This anime adaptation is on an Edgar Allen Poe level. The beauty is in the uglyness of the art - in the movement of the characters - where plain meets breakthrough in movement, and grasps of the concept of reading subtle emotion through simplistic rotoscope art. The beauty is in the story line and the poetry ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    It a weird show but i like it
    i dont know why but i feel as if this anime is going to get somewhere.
    Different type of animation style but it adds on to how much of a different anime this is.
    I think that the anime is not going to be one of the best animation's i saw but i think it will be ok.
