I'd honestly rather watch the pre-animated footage instead. I stick with the "ugly characters for an ugly story" point of view.

i wish they'd just remake the anime in a style that's actually like the manga

i personally prefer the anime style ,it give the story more depth and make it give it more realistic feeling +the characters look more like a highschool student

Dramas seem to work out better than big-budget superpower stories that require massive VFX.

So it's going to be shit. Just because Aku no Hana and Prison School both focus on sex that doesn't mean that they are the same

NO!! Just give me that second season...


a live action adaptation seems pointless given that the rotoscoped series is most of the way there anyway

it surprises me that they keep investing in things like this where it's not new enough to be on people's mind or vintage enough for a new generation to look forward to

I wonder if they'll get actors that actually look like high school teenagers this time.

Very nice, looking forward to this.

I do feel like this author's works will work better in live action style then in anime.

So just reusing the footage that they rotoscoped? :^)

Strange that they're still investing in this series. I thought the anime wasn't well received though I personally did enjoy it.

The anime, no, but the manga was.
