@AURON570: I agree that Flowers of Evil does not have the exaggerated animation that most cartoons have but I think the reason some people do not like the show's look is that it does make the viewer "think twice about the animation." Rotoscoped animation in general looks really strange and creates an uncanny valley effect that is very distracting. The animation may be a tracing of "real life" yet it also feels very odd and awkward. I think that feeling adds a lot to Flowers of Evil's atmosphere but I can understand why it would turn a lot of people off. But that is okay, it is healthy for a medium like anime to have different shows for different tastes.
