An anime adaptation of Shūzō Oshimi's The Flowers of Evil (Aku no Hana) manga has been green-lit. Hiroshi Nagahama (Mushishi, Detroit Metal City) will helm the project, but no other details have been announced.

The "corrupt pure-love story" revolves around Takao Kasuga, a bookish boy who loves the poems of Charles Baudelaire (the original author of the poetry collection Les Fleurs du mal or Flowers of Evil). One day after school, he discovers and steals the gym clothes of Nanako Saeki, the girl he has a crush on. However, he learns that Sawa Nakamura, a girl he loathes, happens to catch him in the act. Nakamura blackmails Kasuga into a "contract," or else she will reveal his secret.

Oshimi launched the manga in the inaugural issue of Kodansha's Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine in 2009, and Kodansha published the sixth book volume in June. Vertical will publish the fourth volume in North America in October.
