#Anime Vice Discussion Threads » Fate/Stay Night 2014 Discussion

I haven't seen any of the other adaptations of Fate/Stay Night and in fact my only experience with the series (besides trying to play the game once) is Fate/Zero. So I have no idea how the first episode compares to anything else but, as a fan of Fate/Zero, I'm liking the show so far. The story is still being set up but as long as the rest of Unlimited Blade Works is this well executed then I'll keep coming back every week to see more!

#Anime Vice Discussion Threads » Aku no Hana Series Discussion

@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.

#Anime Vice Discussion Threads » Aku no Hana Series Discussion

I saw the first episode of Flowers of Evil last night and I have not been this excited about an anime in a long time. I have a feeling that this could be the beginning of a really special show. It almost feels like Flowers of Evil is purposefully trying to be the polar opposite of modern anime. The show takes place in a high school setting yet school life is shown as a depressing and crushing environment instead of the fun youthful playground it is often portrayed as. The show's rotoscoped visuals are also very unmarketable and seem focused on creating a mood rather than selling merchandise. Every about Flowers of Evil feels very atypical and, whether the show fails or succeeds, it is going to be an interesting watch.
