NSK 2D Club: Aku no Hana part 1

aku-no-hana

It’s been a while since the last show!

As we wrapped up discussion on both seasons of AKB0048 we wondered when we would come across an anime compelling enough for us to watch and discuss; then Aku no Hana happened, a show that we couldn’t shut up about.

In this episode we talk about the first six episodes of Aku no Hana, discussing the controversial art style, music, characters, story, our predictions and more! Note that this is a spoiler-cast, where we bring up and talk about key plot and character developments up to episode six. Also note that we all jumped into the show fresh, not having read the manga.

If you’ve been keeping up, or just don’t care about spoilers, jump right into our discussion! We would love to hear your opinions in the comments.
