Ongoing Investigations: Case #233
  The Flowers of Evil was a series that seemed to either be on peoples best anime of 2013 list or something you acknowledged existed but had a strong reason it was absent. Quite a few people just could not watch because they hated the look of the rotoscoping. In their defense it is rotoscoping. It is...

12 Days of Anime #10: Why Flowers of Evil Was So Hit-Or-Miss
 I wasn’t writing (yet) for OASG when I came across Flowers of Evil this spring. There are usually one or two shows every season that are so captivating that I can’t wait to acquire the newest episode and watch it as soon as possible. This spring there were two: besides this little gem, the...

Some Quick First Impressions: Strike the Blood
  Sekai de Ichiban Tsuyoku Naritai! Short Synopsis: Our lead character “wrestles” in public. What can I say? This show is just outright porn. Karuta gets Chihayafuru, Go gets Hikaru no Go, Football gets Giant Killing, Shougi gets Shion no OU. And then wresling gets to do with this vapid...

Review: Flowers of Evil
  There always has to be that show every few years, doesn’t there? You know, that show. The one that somehow manages to gain the ire of nearly everyone in existence even though there are other, much more terrible shows that deserve that hatred? Yep, it’s time to talk about Flowers of Evil....

While I appreciate the effort, Flowers of Evil is crap
  (I know Shinmaru blogged the whole show, but I want my say on this thing) I appreciate anime trying something a little different when it’s appropriate. Flowers of Evil is a pretty good example of the kind of manga you should be doing this with. A teenage boy idolises a pretty girl in his class...

Chihayafuru S1 + S2 Review — B-
  A group of friends plays Karuta together. The best way I can think of to describe Chihayafuru is as a combination of a sports show, a show focusing on school life, and a shoujo romance. It’s the combination that makes Chihayafuru so engaging. We get the characterizations of a romance combined...

The Flowers of Evil – Review
  Darkness lurks everywhere, in every human heart, and sometimes it takes just a second of weakness for it to take root. For Kasuga Takao, that germination begins when his obsession with his beautiful classmate Nanako meets the opportunity to borrow her used gym clothes. Unfortunately, his loathsome act...

The Flowers of Evil Episode 12 – Meet the Parents
 Recap: Kasuga tries to apologize to Nakamura, but she refuses to talk to him. As a last resort, he pays a visit to her house. The Flowers of Evil has always skirted the line between a morose, atmospherical use of slow pacing and straight-up padding, but in the first half of this episode, I do []

Flowers of Evil 12 – Understanding
  I hope many of you stood alongside me shouting as if we were watching a janky horror movie at a deserted theater at like 3 a.m. NO DON’T GO IN THERE KASUGA WHAT ARE YOU DOING THIS IS A TERRIBLE IDEAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!! The power of silence and the looming threat of a sure-to-be angry Nakamura coming...

Flowers of Evil 11 – Nightmare
  An easy way to win me over: make your backgrounds look like impressionist hell. It’s really not difficult to please me visually at all. The end result of that ride to the police station is a bit curious to me. I’m surprised the rumors didn’t spread like wildfire afterward. Surely...

The Flowers of Evil Episode 9 – Fedoras of Evil
 Recap: Saeki does not want to break up with Kasuga despite the truths that have been revealed to her. More confused than ever, Kasuga takes a day off school, providing Nakamura with ample opportunity to toy with Saeki. One of the things I love about The Flowers of Evil is how it sparks discussion. With...

The Flowers of Evil Episode 8 – The Decompression Loops
 Recap: Kasuga and Nakamura walk home for what seems like forever. How do you turn two pages of manga into eight minutes of animation? I admit, I am a big fan of decompression. It gives comics a feel of realistic length, creates tension and allows a writer to visually accentuate any crucial points. The...
