Nightmare Fuel: Aku no Hana
From the get go, an anime based in the Uncanny Valley
is sure to have its fair share of Nightmare Fuel
- Nakamura breaking Kasuga's father's kneecaps when he tried to stop her from taking Kasuga. Jeez, woman.
- This doozy,◊ when Nakamura forces Kasuga to wear Saeki's gym clothes under his clothes when he and Saeki go on a date.
- The ending song. Probably a good representation of someone slowly descending into madness.
- That moment when you realize that Saeki has completely gone off the deep end.
- The final chapter, which goes all the way back to the start of the story from Nakamura's perspective. To wit, every other person to her, even her own father, are nothing more than indescribable masses of miasma from which flies constantly escape from their mouths. Not enough for you? Over the course of until she confronts Kasuga with his secret, she takes the time to see the miasma slowly creep along her own body as well, with her helplessly trying to will it to stop. Makes you think that she had it as bad as Fuminori.
