  • 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 ...

    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

    Great Potential, but...
    When I started to watch the first two episodes, I thought it was lame and slow, but I decided to push forward. I decided to read further in its manga counterpart and I am hooked.
    Note: This is something you may not want to show in an anime club due to content and not everyone may enjoy it.

    I was really going to quit but..
    I was totally going to quit this anime but
    . Rotoscoping works here and the characters look great. I don't know the whole story but this could really be the best of the season for me.

    The first anime I've been able to sit through and enjoy in a long time
    I'd been completely turned off with the anime fare that's been available the past couple of years (legit translations) and had completely dropped watching any of it, until this one came along. I can see where the problem is where otaku haven't been taking to it: it's a very subtle and complex story of psychological sadomasochism, with extremely mature content that whooshes over the heads of a ...

    Fresh and heavy, an oddly perfect combo!
    I remember picking up a copy of the manga at a Barnes & Noble a few years back and thinking "how... why... what?!" It was such a disturbing account of adolescent tribulation that I could barely get through the first volume without grimacing. Of course I wanted more.

    Now that the anime is out, I await every Monday with a newfound enthusiasm. The atmosphere carried over well from paper to pixels ...

    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!

    Amazing! Must try if you want something different!
    I've just watched episode 1. It was fantastic!
    Ignore people telling you not to watch it, give it a go.
    It ditches typical anime direction for something new and unique. The episode has a pervasive feeling of dread which is reflected extremely well in the art direction and the music.
    The rotoscope style is unusual and off-kilter, but it's animated well and brings the mundanity of the setting ...
