I finished watching aku no hana and read the manga too in less than a day.
I'll have to say the anime was much better than the manga because of the art-style and the addition of music. I'm disappointed the story devolved into a normal love story after the time-skip. It was like a 20-chapters long epilogue. No need for it.
First two episodes of the anime are 10/10 but it goes down-hill from there. The very last chapter was a strong way to end though.
This. The anime is the biggest pleb-filter there is.
I watched up until around episode 7 and dropped, this shit was going nowhere and the main characters were dumb fucks with special snowflake complex getting worked up over nothing. The only way I can think of someone enjoying this is if they somehow relate to the pathetic excuse for a person that is the MC, which is kinda depressing.

The manga is a 10/10. The anime just stops in the middle, it didn't even get to the real climax of the story.
>I'll have to say the anime was much better than the manga because of the art-style Stopped reading there
>dumb fucks with special snowflake complex getting worked up over nothing Why are you describing Evangelion?
How could you not laugh when this scene popped up?
Or the one just before it where he's wailing like an autistic toddler while riding his bike?
Having to pilot a mech that causes you both physical and psychological pain is definitely something more understandable to get worked up over than fucking stolen gym clothes. The thing with Aku no Hana is that it has no stakes and the silly stuff that causes most of the "psychological" drama in the series almost make it feel like it's some kind of parody, but it isn't.
What makes you think that I want reals in my escapist entertainment?
This. If only there had been a second season with Saeki's arc and the festival
I reread the last chapter a week ago and I completely lost it in this page. I cried a river.
