Vertical Adds Flowers of Evil Manga
By Joseph Luster
Anime series weren't the only pickups announced at this past weekend's Anime Weekend Atlanta convention. Manga publisher Vertical Inc. let its latest acquisition be known, as well: Flowers of Evil (Aku no Hana).
Flowers of Evil is an ongoing series by Shuzou Oshimi, and has been serialized in Bessatsu Shonen Magazine since 2009. Vertical plans to release Oshimi's series every other month, starting in May 2012.
The story concerns Takao Kusuga, a boy who steals the gym clothes of a girl he likes. However, the girl in question saw everything, and threatens to tell if he doesn't form a "contract" with her.
