The Flowers of Evil Teaser Trailer

King records released the first teaser trailer for their newest TV anime project, The Flowers of Evil which is also known as Aku no Hana in Japanese. The Flowers of Evil is a light novel adaptation of Shūzō Oshimi’s Aku no Hana. You can take a look at the teaser trailer above.

Aku no Hana is about Kasuga Takao who is a boy who loves reading books, particularly Baudelaire’s Les Fleurs du Mal. A girl at his school, Saeki Nanako, is his muse and his Venus, and he admires her from a distance. One day, he forgets his copy of Les Fleurs du Mal in the classroom and runs back alone to pick it up. In the classroom, he finds not only his book, but Saeki’s gym uniform. On a mad impulse, he steals it.

Now everyone knows “some pervert” stole Saeki’s uniform, and Kasuga is dying with shame and guilt. Furthermore, the weird, creepy, and friendless girl of the class, Nakamura, saw him take the uniform. Instead of revealing it was him, she recognizes his kindred deviant spirit and uses her knowledge to take control of his life. Will it be possible for Kasuga to get closer to Saeki, despite Nakamura’s meddling and his dark secret? What exactly does Nakamura intend to do with him?

The Flowers of Evil will start airing on Japanese television on April 5th.
