    not that bad, but not gonna be best anime this season.
    The animation style is unique, i personally like it a lot cuz its a change of pace from the regular animation style. The plot of this anime is really interesting if you like having you mind F***ed. i don't think there is going to be a middle ground for this anime, some people are going to really like it and some people are going to really hate it.Also i didn't read the manga, and its supposed to ...

    What is This? Why do I Kind of Like it?
    It was much slower than most shows of any genera I have seen. The protagonist has sucky friends, but that is cohesive with the rest of this poor kid's life. Throughout the whole first episode I was thinking "come on demon powers, I want some dragons and robots!" I think there is some kind of magic in here, but who knows? The animation style was fluid, but not detailed, probably because it was ...

    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.

  • Excellent realism anime
    Interesting concept art, very realist and stylized. Flowers of evil is an anime of the realism genre that tells the story about a timid high school teenager that wants to get rid of his fear, and to be beloved by a pretty student. He starts reading the Flowers of Evil written by the symbolist and French "poete maudit" Baudelaire. A classmate girl is helping him to free his emotions blackmailing ...

    Unusual Style, but it works to create a moody feel.
    Loved the feel of the anime.

    Some reviewers have stated that the style is significantly different from the manga. I understand the disappointment that can follow after your expectations are not met. However, having not read the manga beforehand, I have to say I enjoyed this anime. The backgrounds are superb and the animation, though lacking in detail, shows movement and expressions very ...

    I'm hopeful but unsure
    After one episode I found this anime to be disturbing enough to keep me from being bored, which is surprising because very little happens. I also dislike the way the people are drawn, and the way the backgrounds (although stunningly beautiful art) are static and repeated.
    However I am reading a different manga by the same author, Oshimi Shuuzou, and really enjoying the psychological pressure put ...

    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 ...

    The title of the show explains everything
    I first read the manga before to watch the anime, but there was a part where I couldn't take it anymore, so I stopped my reading. When I saw the anime is released on Chrunchyroll, I thought that maybe it's better so I watched it. The graphic is original. The characters' expression a bit ok. It's similar to the manga so I skipped some eps, but I've noticed that the anime is slower. They put longer ...

    I dont care about the animation, it is just too unrealistic.
    I love how they without too many words brought so much depths of emotions. I just never understood how he could run away from someone he once adored. I understand that maybe he was just in love with the idea of her. But this "im not worthy" idea is just overused and we all have dark secrets, but come on girls are practically and sometimes literally throwing themselves at you and you just run away ...

    A GREAT story with mediocre o poor exicution
    OK first this is a GREAT story and is worth wading thorough the problems to get through to the meaty gritty insides.
    Watch it for a well written story

    TRY to ignore --
    Poor rotoscopic animation ( rotoscoping is great but this is only a poor effort on a difficult process.)

    Black outs Yes this has many many minutes of nothing or barely nothing and only audio. This is fine for effect ...
