The first combined edition of The Flowers of Evil features volumes 1-3 of this best-selling and acclaimed series. It follows the adventures of a lonely bookish teen struggling to find his identity through Baudelaire’s poetry, until two girls—a beauty and a bully—help him find true love and friendship. Edgy, intense, and romantic, this new edition will give fans a chance to reconnect with Kasuga, Saeki, and Nakamura as it explores the issues of bullying, loneliness, individuality, and identity.
“It is often darkly funny, with Oshimi delivering what would be ‘jokes’ in other manga with a straightforward sincerity that may or may not be deadpan. It’s an uncomfortable funny, akin to the funny parts in, say, David Lynch movies.” –Every Day Is Like Wednesday
