  • A Show that has Mastered Suspense
    I went into Flowers of Evil not knowing what to expect- the blurb sounds like a typical ecchi anime, but the roto-scoped style does nothing to support that impression. I would like to start by saying I am very glad that the show creators decided to opt for this style, instead of the manga's. It may seem a bit odd at first, but it plays a huge part in providing an atmosphere of sinister ...

    Decent by itself, but compared to the manga, not so good.
    Here's the thing. I read the manga first, so my opinion of the show might be bias. However, I must say, the Manga is a MUCH better interpretation of the story IMO. The pacing of the anime is just all over the place, and it ends about a quarter of the way through the story. The ending of the anime shows flashes of things that Kasuga and Nakamura have yet to do, things that are very important in the ...

  • I very much enjoyed this series
    What captivated me about this series is the style and mood of this anime. It is very different from most series that are put out and although I still like them, it is a refreshing change. Sometimes I want him to do the right thing but I root for destruction and inner turmoil at the same time. The music is great as well. I would love to actually read the Flowers of Evil poem to be able to better ...

  • Atmospheric trhiller about everyday insecurities
    Schoolboys little mistake eats him inside and leaves him insecure about everything he has ever known.
    Story is in slice of life style and there are no supernatural elements in horror side. Series manages to create hopeless and lonely atrmosphere which is even more effective because of the realistic portrail of school life. Atmosphere is more even uderlined by uncanny artstyle and haunting ending ...

    Wow blew my mind away
    So I basically watched all 13 episodes in one sitting. Talk about very different yet very interesting. I had know idea what to expect next. Really gets your mind thinking. The ending song is really creepy but you want to keep listening to it. I just kept watching episode after episode, now waiting for the second season. Totally wasn't what I expected and really took a huge liking to it.

  • Dragged Out, Intense
    I enjoy the different areas the Anime genre can explore; the stories to be told in this medium can be anything from a cutesy love story to introspective psychological mind game.

    Flowers of Evil is the latter, bringing up true desires and feelings compared to what is expected from the world. I wanted to stop watching this anime due to the amount of emotional turmoil it causes but that was ...

  • Looking for a show that makes you question your own humanity? well step right up
    First of all, Thank you Crunchyroll for taking this show into your loving arms. Second of all, thanks for introducing me to an amazing manga from this great show. Thirdly, I forgot this was a review so i'll stop gushing. To put it simply, give this show a try, just for the experience alone. You may hate it, you may love it, hell you may be hating it from the first episode, but keep going, not ...

  • Smashing the boundaries of conventional, saturated anime.
    This anime is what the market needs. In a time of saturation and being satisfied with the average, 'Flowers of Evil' raises the bar with a unique, rotoscoped style, and a dark, yet real plot. Rather than character development, this anime allows you to get to know the characters, with your opinions on the two main protagonists, Sawa and Takao completely evolving as Takao is pushed by the self ...

    This is one of the five best shows on crunchyroll, without a doubt.
    If you're searching for something truly great, artistic, with some self-aware intellectual and social value, you've come to the right place. This is one of my ten favorite TV series, animated or not, of all time. I recommend it in the highest terms and I guarantee you will be provoked in some way.

    The main two reasons I give this high praise, and my recommendation, is because of two things: ...

  • Emotionally Taxing..
    This is the only anime I could even be bothered to review to be honest. It took the second episode to really understand what I was getting into, and by the sixth... Wow.

    There are scenes beyond anything ever in anime to this date, emotionally taxing
