School life, with an added unnerving edge rarely seen in fiction. Until the latter stages of The Flowers of Evil's manga, I had thought of it as a sort of fictional suicide note where the normality of life would eventually crush its lead. And the anime amplified that feeling tenfold with the realism added by its rotoscoping (both titles are low-budget yet artistic) and its ambient soundtrack. The execution just gives off a feeling of undefined dread. Flowers and King of Pigs are different and the same. The emptiness and bleak school life is an obvious linking factor but Flowers relied far more on atmosphere and  read more

Nihilism presented as animation. Both are by the same South Korean director & studio, and the themes explored are very similar. Sadly, the animation is limited to stiff (though expressive) low-budget CG. In 'The King of Pigs', two former friends sinking in despair meet for the first time in 15 years and find themselves reminiscing over their middle school experiences. Typically violent Korean school culture (as depicted in fiction, at least!) gets injected with the struggles of trying to rise above a social hierarchy where the rich have free reign to intimidate and abuse those without money.

The main character had a terrible experience in the school/institution they were in and getting called derogatory names. The main character made friends in the school/institution environment while the story progresses but an unwanted event happened that broke the friendship.

Both shows are dubbed as edgy shock value dependent shows, but tell the effects of bullying to the victims in a hard way. Both  read more

While the plot of both anime may be different, both have a similar tone and deal with disturbing and taboo themes. Both anime have a lot of violence and murder, and focus on characters who have suffered a lot during their childhoods. Both anime have characters with nihilistic views on life, who, in order to survive the violence and torture in their childhood, decide to become "monsters". So, becoming evil (or monster) is a key element in both anime, which is what makes the two similar.

Violent and gore-filled films that feature heavy uses of 3D CG. Both are dark stories about people being driven to extremes by revenge.

- 3D animation - Dark and at times gorey, violent - Lots of action, fast paced - Explores themes of social isolation and persecution
