    not that bad, but not gonna be best anime this season.
    The animation style is unique, i personally like it a lot cuz its a change of pace from the regular animation style. The plot of this anime is really interesting if you like having you mind F***ed. i don't think there is going to be a middle ground for this anime, some people are going to really like it and some people are going to really hate it.Also i didn't read the manga, and its supposed to ...

    What is This? Why do I Kind of Like it?
    It was much slower than most shows of any genera I have seen. The protagonist has sucky friends, but that is cohesive with the rest of this poor kid's life. Throughout the whole first episode I was thinking "come on demon powers, I want some dragons and robots!" I think there is some kind of magic in here, but who knows? The animation style was fluid, but not detailed, probably because it was ...

    I'm confused is this good or shit?
    The review is only of the first episode and I’m intrigued. The art style is really unusual it’s not good by any means of imagination. I fell like everything they do is the opposite of any other anime I’ve seen. It’s slow but I actually want to keep watching. It’s so creepy that I actually like it but it’s so bad that you have to be a masochist like me to watch and like this anime.

  • Excellent realism anime
    Interesting concept art, very realist and stylized. Flowers of evil is an anime of the realism genre that tells the story about a timid high school teenager that wants to get rid of his fear, and to be beloved by a pretty student. He starts reading the Flowers of Evil written by the symbolist and French "poete maudit" Baudelaire. A classmate girl is helping him to free his emotions blackmailing ...

    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 ...

    Unusual Style, but it works to create a moody feel.
    Loved the feel of the anime.

    Some reviewers have stated that the style is significantly different from the manga. I understand the disappointment that can follow after your expectations are not met. However, having not read the manga beforehand, I have to say I enjoyed this anime. The backgrounds are superb and the animation, though lacking in detail, shows movement and expressions very ...

    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.

    I'm hopeful but unsure
    After one episode I found this anime to be disturbing enough to keep me from being bored, which is surprising because very little happens. I also dislike the way the people are drawn, and the way the backgrounds (although stunningly beautiful art) are static and repeated.
    However I am reading a different manga by the same author, Oshimi Shuuzou, and really enjoying the psychological pressure put ...
