    This is just stupid...
    Ok, I'm not even gonna beat around the bush about the awful character designs in the anime adaptation. Let's get to the crux of things and examine the story itself...

    I decided to play the critic and marathoned 20+ chapters of this in the manga out of morbid curiosity to see what Aku no Hana fans were fussing about. After all that, I can confirm that this series is just stupid. Insanely stupid. ...

    not my cup of tea due to sloppy animation
    I have read the manga, and i was actually looking forward to this anime, since i was particularly intrigued by the psychological theme that was being repeatedly emphesised. So as far as the story goes, it is definitely something worth taking a look at, either through the manga or the anime.

    This topic is where we will have the big polarization of opinions, because there are some that argue that ...

    I just can't watch this
    I got through episode 1, not thoroughly impressed mind you. But, since I was able to watch the entire episode I figured I'd give the series a chance. Like many have already stated, they use rotoscoping (drawing over filmed video to make it look animated), so that will definitely throw you off at first. I can get past that, especially since it creates one of the few accurate portrayals of Japan ...

    Just a little story please.
    I am not sure what to say about this. I can live with The graphics though it takes getting used to, but I won't watch anymore because quite frankly they gave you no story at all in the the first episode. You could literally start at episode 2 and not have missed a thing.

    Completely Distorted
    The character design style is completely different from the manga. First of all the story itself is kind of screwed up that you sometimes wonder why you are reading this but using this not so appealing character design makes the anime alot worse. I might be wrong but if you ask me this change in the anime probably cause a complete money down the drain for the production company. This character ...

    Flowers of evil is good story, real
    A lot of people are people so anal about the animation, but I honestly like it. It could have used some shadows and seamless lines but it look like real time, which I admire

    Flowers of evil is good story, real

    Just give it some time
    I will say it's very different but I like very different.That what got me reading the Flowers of Evil. In the first place. My recommendation would be to read the Manga first then watch the anime and gave it some time. Yes it's slow and completely different from manga,But you see the flower's starting to bloom and that thing's going get really screw up for everyone next episode.So just gave it ...

    You know how you hope the manga translates well to anime?
    So, you know how you hope that the manga translates well to anime, and usually they do a pretty decent job? Well, sadly, that is not the case with Flowers of Evil. Rotoscoping can be done really well, or it can, well... turn out like this. Aside from that, it just didn't ... work. I don't know if I'll bother watching more of this, which is sad, because the manga is interesting!

    And I was looking foreward to this...
    I read the manga for this and enjoyed it a lot, and was really looking foreward to the anime and was excited to see it rotoscoped. I was disappointed after watching the first episode. It had low production value, the voices weren't well synced to the animation, it looked awful (in my opinion) and they used the same backgrounds way too many times. This anime could've been really good but they ...
