Ultimate production controversy anime Aku no Hana is still proving as incendiary as ever, with the rotoscope treatment of the original’s “reverse rape” scene setting hearts aflutter for the eventual sex scenes present in the manga, and “fans” generally of the opinion that series could have dominated the season had it been animated properly…

































The original:





The series is proving so provocative it seems nobody has thought to stop watching it:

“Best episode yet!”

“I don’t get why the protagonist is so upset about being assaulted like that!”

“If only this was properly made it would have been awesome. I really wanted to see the art from the original…”

“The scene where she stripped and changed him got me excited. Am I a pervert?”

“I wish they could have at least synced the dialogue to the mouth movements.”

“The rotoscoping worked really well for the reverse rape scene. Really fresh…”

“If they do the sex like this it will be good!”

“Considering how difficult it is to strip someone’s clothes off like that, he pretty much must have consented.”

“Their eyebrows keep disappearing from scene to scene, the guys animating this are totally inconsistent.”

“At this pace they will get to his deflowering soon. If this had used the original’s character designs it would have dominated the season, wouldn’t it?”

    the protagonist is the only one that look decent, the "mental girl" look like a dude, while the heroine that suppose to be a beautiful, is not that good looking..

    So? Do you need to beat off to every anime you watch?

    I'm trying, but I can't get into it. Would've been a great anime otherwise.

    Agreed, if this had been done from a manga/source material that somewhat rezembeled it. This series would have been most liekly well recieved. However, it's based on something that noware near resembles it. Thus gaining an instant hate/ strong dislike as a result.

    I could put up with the style if Nakamura was at least attractive. Being both ugly and creepy just makes her a completely unappealing character.

    Judging by the screens of the first episode, I agree with you. This episode however makes her look slightly less down syndromey, so I'll give it a shot.

    She's not meant to be appealing.

    She's one of the most unappealing characters ever invented. I was waiting the whole manga for her to be tortured to death or something, but the creator was too much of a pussy to do something like that

    Grr Ok I was used to the rotoscope but now I feel a bit ripped off for this
    Then again doubt they could get away with airing it if not for that rotoscoping

    You get used to the design. I was able to fap to the red haired gal after adapting to her appearance.

    man, i am FUCKING loving this, three episodes in. Story is disturbing and the soundtrack - especially the end credits ghost/robot thing - is mindblowing. My favourite thing about it, is that it's causing entitled moetard otaku, across the land, to piss their panties in rage because "BAWWWWWW, it doesm't look how WE expect it to look! Bawwwwww wahhh wahhhh !". I mean, god forbid the makers follow their own vision. They should be creating something that fits absolutely within the paper thin vision of whining fucktards on internet message boards :D Thank GOD the internet is here, otherwise a billion neckbeaded, basement dwelling pseudo-intellectual artists, with "worthwhile" ideas might NEVER get to tell every other person in the world whats good and what isn't :) Moe has it's rightful place. But so do every other kind of animation style. They're not spending your money on making it so please give it up. You wouldn't even pay money for it, even if you loved it, you'd only torrent the fucking thing anyway :)

    I find it fascinating that your favorite thing about this is that other people don't like it. If the majority starts liking it will you start hating on it?

    More like rotoscope of Down Syndrome patients. If you've seen other rotoscoped material, you'll realize that this one is far uglier than the average person.

    Go ahead and cry. I'll be over here enjoying this along with the other anime airing, because I'm not a child who whines about things not always being easy to watch.

    Could have been the best show this season....but they had to go with the "fresh" feeling to appeal to the masochistic retards that like watching this abomination

    The whole story is masochistic. You just don't have any nice-looking straws to grasp at, so you're seeing it for what it really is. Too bad that's too much for you.

    You hardcore otaku think the worth of an anime comes down to the fucking discs it sales! As expected of your kind, always shallowly looking at supremacy for your fav series in disc sales.!

    “The rotoscoping worked really well for the reverse rape scene. Really fresh…”

    Well duh, that is THE kind of scene you use rotoscoping for. Basic animation direction 101. Has been done to great effect in countless traditionally manga-styled anime.

    Just checked it out earlier...

    Is it just me or did they do it on purpose? Because other rotoscopped works like King of the Hills show on TV here every week, and they're not remotely this ugly.

    They did not rotoscope a normal person. Those facial features are classic positive diagnosis for Down Syndrome.
