Synopsis



First Impressions

Okay I just finished watching this and it was VERY weird and a bit out of space. The animation is really strange like something from the 1990s. There's also this weird feeling of nostologia somehow along with the smooth music.

Everything felt like slow for some reason to me also for the first episode. Overall, I have very mixed feelings for the show now. The characters' designs looks a bit different compared to the manga imo. It seems to lack any real flavor imo.


Some screenshots:

Hmm, looks like a very similar style to summer wars. I'll check it out at some point though

ZEXCS should make a time machine and air this series on 1970-1990s instead. The animation is a "failure" by anime standard now, it is even worse if it is compared with the manga art.

Edit: After reading the interviews between the manga author and the anime director, apparently the character visuals are intentional and the author approves it.

It felt like a life action TV drama. I wonder how the voice acting will work. Ise Mariya (Nakamura) and Hikasa Youko (Saeki) didn't appear in the ending credits.

I can see a lot of people being disappointed with this, I can see why but I rather liked it, the pace was slow but I enjoyed it and might carry on watching it, the animation was new and at least it was animated well.
Music was amazing.

If you've read the manga, you'll know why this show is going to be one of the best this season.

I LOVE the manga! When I saw that there was going to be an adaptation to it it was like "EHHHH?? This is going to be good!" Little did I know they were going to use rotoscopy for the character design (which looks horrible). The backgrounds though....are amazing, they are really good looking. And I found Nakamura's face in the "anime" so derpy I made it my pic!

The thing you need to remember is that the art style was intentional. It's not like they were trying something different and then epically failed, they wanted to make the show like this.

I don't think its bad. I think it is just eerily different.

I believe it is still ongoing. I also believe it's more appropriate to call it The Flowers of Evil instead of just Flowers of Evil because there is a manwha with the same name, which focuses on incest. Well then again they both reference the same poem so I guess it can't really be helped.
