    Clearly not for every Anime fan...
    This Anime is not for everyone. It has a very specific target audience. It is for the most part, a real life drama with a LOT of sprinkled metaphor in the series. If you read a lot of books, and prefer social outcast or other points of view story lines you're going to love this series. The whole point of this series the "abnormal", or for everyone to not be the same. The Anime delivers that ...

  • Dark and atmospheric
    Flowers of evil is nothing less than a masterpiece. The storytelling reminds me of Natsuo Kirino's best work. Enter it with an open mind even if you don't like the animation at first. The bleak colors and rotorscoping are deliberate artistic choices and really ad to the atmosphere of the story. The pacing may be slow but the characters are real personalities that grow on you. This gives some ...

    Very good, suspensful and traumatic
    The show started out slow, but as you REALLY get into it, you realize its very deep and scary. The amount of stress and anxiety this show gives when you watch it is crazy. Mental trauma should be a notable side-effect to watching this.

    A modern psychological roller coaster.
    Getting past the art is completely worth it. I appreciate the animation style, but if you get used to it, you get to enjoy one of the best psychological thrillers of anime produced in a long time. It's gripping, mocks japanese culture and society, all while creating an original atmosphere to anyone who's ever experienced the angst and pressure of the common teenager. The character development is a ...

    Unique, but not for everyone.
    This anime is not for everyone, because it is not your usual anime. the Story line makes a big deal out of a small event, and in a beautiful way. Instead of the anime following a protagonist that finds acceptance of everyone and ends up with the best possible situation, this anime follows a social inept who goes from being shy into a complete maniac, and taking you in a journey with him. The ...

    Great Potential, but...
    When I started to watch the first two episodes, I thought it was lame and slow, but I decided to push forward. I decided to read further in its manga counterpart and I am hooked.
    Note: This is something you may not want to show in an anime club due to content and not everyone may enjoy it.

    Not for Everyone But Exceptional None the Less
    Yes yes, i know the art style is mediocre in some peoples mind, and some question the idea that it is even anime, and i know it is a dramatic change from the manga, i happen to think this art style fits the plot much better than the original. After watching the first few episodes of this anime i took a look at the manga and was confused due to the very moe esk style it presented. I did not read ...

    Social taboo's and great drama
    Great art style and i love the attack on the social hive mind in this show. Give you a real look at what people really think and what they want to deny in there own minds because everyone is so judgmental in our society. Must watch if you're into physiology or what goes threw peoples minds.

    soamazinglybeautiful
    So far, so good. I, personally have not read the manga. I have nothing to compare to, but I prefer it that way. This way I can enjoy this as a piece of art standing on its own, and from what I've seen so far, its beautiful. The art style, though different from what anime viewers are used to adds a realistic and incredibly emotional effect to the story. Its different. But its done so perfectly. On ...
