    Recently a new anime called Aku No Hana has hit the air waves in japan. The reaction from the fans has been a lot of bawing and drama because it's so fucking ugly to the point it can't even be considered to be called anime. Why am I bringing this up? It just seems to me to be lazy in terms of character design, it doesn't even look good. Some people are saying however the landscapes are, but it brings to light of what Japan is really like underneath all that sparkly kawaii-desu weeb-shit.

    AHHHHHHH! BURN IT WITH FIRE!!

    Maybe that one's shopped...

    As said from both the show's creator and the original artist:


    Apparently it's better to make a bad impression than none at all and that's why they went with it. It sounds like they're making excuses for someone's fuck up really, who knows the truth as to what really happened. That being said I never seen the manga, and given how the anime looks I don't want to now.

    I'm sure people noticed that, sure, maybe some of the characters have no detail inside their mouths, or no skin tones between their bangs, maybe they do have the same kinda empty grin stare that gives one the chills and the characters look lazy while everything else looks great. Atleast it made an impact! I mean that means something, I'm writing about it aren't I?

    That's akin to saying "Well I might not be famous, but at least I have an ED article on me and that means I made an impact!" Yikes.

    I just watched it. I think the real-ish animation adds to the creepy school drama.

    Looks awesome, imo, at least they have facial expressions, unlike 98% of animu. Otakus are raging only because they can't masturbate to it.

    I'm not really upset because they used a different style, I'm upset because it looks crappy.

    So people are upset that the characters look like actual people, instead of same-face? Seems legit.

    That would kill the purpose, this is what a common Japanese high school looks like, using models would be stupid and kill the seriousness of the anime.

    I hope it tanks like Girls Und Panzer hasn't.


    I felt more when Mami-san got her head ripped off and Lego Bricked. Anyway. Fuck this and fuck whoever thought it was a good idea. Let's hope some good studio and director gets the manga rights. Fuck.

    Apparently some of the viewers there are already starting to believe it's pushing it. Honestly, the art for the animation reminds me of something from Tom Preston.

    It's Japan, they have the lowest creativity scores in the world. They lack the ability to do anything independently, ask them what their favorite color is and before answering they will fucking ask their friends what the correct answer is. Nothing in their culture is even remotely original, it's always been just a rip off of the west and the rest. The only thing more pathetic than this is the way they glorify such socially-enforced autism. They are the jews of asia.

    The manga is really fucked up (in a good way). I think this shitty rotoscoped animation just makes the whole thing look retarded. It should have been done in the original style or with live actors. I can't wait to see how this animation completely destroys all the intense moments because it will just be human shaped blobs instead of characters.

    Saw the first episode with English subtitles. I don't mind the rotoscope cause I guess I never read the manga. Are the kids going to go crazy and kill each other or some shit, or is there an 'evil flower' monster thing?
