    Intenso y cautivante!
    Esta serie tiene un tono de lastima hacia los personajes, pero los personajes son tan intensos y las situaciones tan inverosimiles, entre mas extraño se vuele todo mas se quiere ver lo que pasa. Es un momento de la vida que todos pasamos en la juventud, el no comprender, conocer quienes somos. Pero aqui el un marco extremo pero muy claro y sumamente entretenido. Enorme recomendacion!

    Flower of a another name
    When I first started watching this anime. I felt it was dry and a bit lifeless. But as the old saying goes you cant judge a book by its cover. Here you find that here. Its anime with lots of drama, twists and strangeness. It raise the question about the nature of evil and how that works. Also tugs at core of who we are and asks are we who we appear to be or is there some else lurking.

    I dont care about the animation, it is just too unrealistic.
    I love how they without too many words brought so much depths of emotions. I just never understood how he could run away from someone he once adored. I understand that maybe he was just in love with the idea of her. But this "im not worthy" idea is just overused and we all have dark secrets, but come on girls are practically and sometimes literally throwing themselves at you and you just run away ...

    Its a bit slow but something i like about it. And then some things i dont. How can explain with ought going into to much detail. It reminds me a bit about my self and then it doesn't.

    He is the big lover boy caught or maybe part of a triangle of drama created by his inquisitive nature into his growing need to have a main aqueez

    Brooding, Psychological, Unconventional
    In spite of being yet another anime / manga about grade school life, Flowers of Evil is far from a typical anime. It uses rotoscoped animation to develop characters through vivid, nuanced facial expressions, as well as a somber, slow pace of action that puts emphasis on setting and scenery. The result is remarkably true-to-life feeling, and well suited to the story, much of which takes place in ...

  • Fluid Animation; An Emotional Journey
    You'll be hooked after watching the first episode. The way the animation is done is like a fight in Naruto, with fluid movement and very little character detail. Except for when it's necessary to portray emotion, then a face suddenly appears so detailed, emotional, and fluid, that you understand exactly what the character is feeling. It's truly a one of a kind show, I have never witnessed such ...

    An anime so different, you start to wonder what all other anime is for
    There is no shortage of plot descriptions for this one, so I'll skip that. Instead let me just say that this is the best anime of the year so far, and one of the best ever in my book.

    Finally an anime with no fan service, realistic characters and no cute animals. I want that too on occasion, but different is refreshing sometimes.

    The atmosphere is dark and a bit gritty, and the pace can be ...

    evil is in the eye of the beholder
    Unique in it's realism, the mundane nature of these souls trapped in a rusted tin town. They seem to want to burst thru all of the "normal" behaviour, the expectations of those around them. Societal norms. Repression, conformity. All of the angst we all go thru at that age. Nothing is what is supposed to be. Wonderful story telling, atmosphere, music, artfully done.

    Atmosphere, Tension, Psychosis
    If I described the plot of this show to you, you might say, "What? That's it? That's all? That's the big deal?" Yes and no. The plot is only the surface of Flowers of Evil, and the trick to it is that it takes these seemingly mundane characters and situations ... and spins them into much, much more. I have never seen a show that relies so heavily on establishing a heavy, oppressive ...

    There is a lesson that can be learned
    It's worth investing your time into, though it has a slow pace. It's better if you start watching without a clue of what it's about. It's amazing and suspenseful, you really wonder just what could happen next, episode after episode.
