    Absolutely Amazing!!!
    This has to be one of the most intriguing anime series I have ever watched. Being both dark and twisted with the added effect of the rotorscoping, it all mixes together to create an atmosphere that will send chills down your spine. An excellent series so far and cannot wait for the coming episodes.
    I recommend anyone looking for an anime that is different from others to watch Flowers of Evil!!

    Watch this show!!!!!
    It may not be action packed, but this is one of the best anime I have ever seen. The art style is something to get used to, but once you do, you realize that it matches the story perfectly. I was hesitant at first because of the art, but by the end of the first episode I literally had chills because of what Takao Kasuga had done and the reaction of the dark, twisted Sawa Nakamura.

  • Flowers of Evil is a breath of fresh air
    Flowers of Evil is incredibly unique. Give it a chance! A lot of people are turned off by the rotoscoping, but after a few episodes you realize why this art style is chosen- it synchronizes great with the dark, tense atmosphere and greatly adds to climactic moments throughout the storyline.

    This is a very unique anime and a lot of anime viewers are turned off simply because they are too young ...

  • Heavy and Twisted but Still Realistic
    Despite the mediocre ratings I'm glad I gave Flowers of Evil a chance. The story is heavy, mature, and a bit twisted; brave and far-fetched but not unrealistic. The whole time you know what you want to see, but understand from real life why it's not so easy. The art direction and music is on point as well.

    The art style is the best part of this anime
    The art of this anime is the best component. It paints a setting with run-down buildings and old infrastructures. It is realistic. It's symbolic and a representation of the decaying and unsightly human heart.

    The characters are very developed. This is a very artistic show, not for audience who only seek superficial entertainment.

    It's also refreshing to see an anime that doesn't have random ...

    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.

    I look forward to every new episode
    I'm new to watching anime, so I don't have a lot to compare this to yet. I absolutely love this though. It seems people either love this or hate it without much in-between. It leaves me feeling a bit creeped out after every episode, but wanting more! For that reason I love it. The music is scary and adds a great touch to this twisted story.

    Amazing-Fresh-New-*Must-watch*
    Amazing anime in terms of story and art. It reminds me so much of Japanese cities and their people. I can't wait to go back. This anime is certainly for a more adult crowd who love a psychological thriller that is full of reality, suspense, and drama. Sadly, I'm certain that most individuals who rated this anime badly, were expecting quite the opposite...maybe less realistic art, big eyes, ...

    Painfully interesting
    I saw this anime at first and figured it would be just another supernatural one. I was wrong. I sat through the first episode through its realism. It strangely horrified me. The combo of the art style followed up by the soundtrack puts a sense of dread within me. No anime has ever done that. Ever. I can't sit through the second episode now because I feel sick inside from the entire premise of the ...

    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 ...
