    Decent by itself, but compared to the manga, not so good.
    Here's the thing. I read the manga first, so my opinion of the show might be bias. However, I must say, the Manga is a MUCH better interpretation of the story IMO. The pacing of the anime is just all over the place, and it ends about a quarter of the way through the story. The ending of the anime shows flashes of things that Kasuga and Nakamura have yet to do, things that are very important in the ...

  • Dragged Out, Intense
    I enjoy the different areas the Anime genre can explore; the stories to be told in this medium can be anything from a cutesy love story to introspective psychological mind game.

    Flowers of Evil is the latter, bringing up true desires and feelings compared to what is expected from the world. I wanted to stop watching this anime due to the amount of emotional turmoil it causes but that was ...

  • Looking for a show that makes you question your own humanity? well step right up
    First of all, Thank you Crunchyroll for taking this show into your loving arms. Second of all, thanks for introducing me to an amazing manga from this great show. Thirdly, I forgot this was a review so i'll stop gushing. To put it simply, give this show a try, just for the experience alone. You may hate it, you may love it, hell you may be hating it from the first episode, but keep going, not ...

  • Smashing the boundaries of conventional, saturated anime.
    This anime is what the market needs. In a time of saturation and being satisfied with the average, 'Flowers of Evil' raises the bar with a unique, rotoscoped style, and a dark, yet real plot. Rather than character development, this anime allows you to get to know the characters, with your opinions on the two main protagonists, Sawa and Takao completely evolving as Takao is pushed by the self ...

  • Emotionally Taxing..
    This is the only anime I could even be bothered to review to be honest. It took the second episode to really understand what I was getting into, and by the sixth... Wow.

    There are scenes beyond anything ever in anime to this date, emotionally taxing

  • Deeply and disturbingly human!
    Aku no Hana is an absolutely thrillingly realistic series, so dark and uncomfortably true its humanity is off-putting to some. I've yet to come across a coming of age series deal with the more negative emotional and complicated aspects of adolescence as well as Aku no Hana.

  • Different but amazing
    Before watching this anime, I hadn't watched anything with rotoscoping in it, but I think it turned out great in Flowers of Evil.

    The whole anime has this eerie thing about it. The characters are great too - they are nothing like each other and they really react to things in their own ways.

    The fact that it doesn't have too many characters in it is a plus for me - if there are too many names ...

    The manga was better
    The art style was the first thing i think anyone sees to want to watch this and i did too. And it's overall very interesting and mind bending! But after just the first episode of almost having a headache from the way they animated it kinda struck me for a loss. So instead of just watching this great story with a constant bored look on my face i just read the manga and listened to the noise of the ...

    This is freaking epic!! 10/10
    I was just expecting to watch a new kind of animation!
    The drama and the suspense was sometimes too much for me, that when the ED song came up sometimes i jumped from my chair.
    The manga is really nice as well and has a twist really interesting, if you like Drama and Psyco stuff this is one of those animes you will want to watch!
