    Uglification is seldom an improvement
    And it's not in this case either.

    The manga and the collection of poems that this story comes from are both titled "FLOWERS of Evil." That title suggests that for some people beauty has a fascination that outweighs any perceived evil in the heart of its possessor. Search out the manga of this story. Notice that Nakamura-san, the woman who ensnares the MC early on, is very pretty--and very ...

    "Unique" doesn't translate as "good"
    If the animators were going for unique and different, they nailed it. But, that doesn't mean that it is good. And in the case of this anime, it is REALLY NOT GOOD.

    Being a fan of the Aku No Hana manga, I tried to watch and enjoy this adaptation. I really, truly tried. But, when you get right down to it, this anime is just plain terrible and ultimately unwatchable. From the horrible ...

    aku no hana not an good adaptation
    rotoscoping is bad for anime and the way it is written so dark gives it a Stephen King to the tenth power feel not anything like the magna. In the magna from the start you get a troubled youth feel to it, just a love triangle of three broken kids. there is the Japanese culture aspect of one bad mistake and your life is over in the story that's hard to get thru but its a good story. but the anime ...

    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
