  • 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

    A Thrilling And Unconventional Work Of Art
    Aku no Hana is a psychological and deeply disturbing take on the anxiety, loneliness, and madness of everyday interpersonal relations. A sensitive male middle school bookworm becomes involved with his reclusive, devious and sharply clever female classmate who blackmails him into committing a progressively perverse series of acts, all while he attempts to conceal his deeds from his love ...

  • Deeply and disturbingly human!
    Aku no Hana is an absolutely thrillingly realistic series, so dark and uncomfortably true its humanity is off-putting to some. I've yet to come across a coming of age series deal with the more negative emotional and complicated aspects of adolescence as well as Aku no Hana.

    Fantastic piece of Intellectual Art
    This anime is a wonderful piece of art and feels like an homage to Baudelaire’s “Les fleurs du mal” (The evil flowers). Flowers of Evil draws upon Baudelaire’s poetry and ideas to expose the viewer to an apparent paradox in life; that the ideal and sinful must co-exist. Following Baudelaire’s work, this paradox is symbolized through two female characters. Nanako is introduced as the pure ...

  • Different but amazing
    Before watching this anime, I hadn't watched anything with rotoscoping in it, but I think it turned out great in Flowers of Evil.

    The whole anime has this eerie thing about it. The characters are great too - they are nothing like each other and they really react to things in their own ways.

    The fact that it doesn't have too many characters in it is a plus for me - if there are too many names ...
