  • 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!

  • Fluid Animation; An Emotional Journey
    You'll be hooked after watching the first episode. The way the animation is done is like a fight in Naruto, with fluid movement and very little character detail. Except for when it's necessary to portray emotion, then a face suddenly appears so detailed, emotional, and fluid, that you understand exactly what the character is feeling. It's truly a one of a kind show, I have never witnessed such ...

    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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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.

    Amazing-Fresh-New-*Must-watch*
    Amazing anime in terms of story and art. It reminds me so much of Japanese cities and their people. I can't wait to go back. This anime is certainly for a more adult crowd who love a psychological thriller that is full of reality, suspense, and drama. Sadly, I'm certain that most individuals who rated this anime badly, were expecting quite the opposite...maybe less realistic art, big eyes, ...
