Quick question- exactly what is a wallflower? Answer: One who does not participate in activity at a social event due to shyness, unpopularity or a combination of the two. The origin of this figurative sense dates way back to 1820 in reference to unpartnered women sitting along the wall at a dance in a work by Mrs. Campbell Praed entitled County Ball. Although originally used to describe women at dances, these days the term can just as easily be applied to men as well and used in situations beyond just a ballroom. That's a good thing because in this context, we're talking about a psychotic teenage chick and modern day ugly duckling saga. But before we get ahead of ourselves here, let's take a look at the hard facts. Originally released by ADV Films, Funimation has recently acquired the rights to the show and has wasted little time in getting a Complete Series release out to the public. Coming in at a total runtime of 625 minutes, the Wallflower the Complete Series spans 4 discs (25 episodes) and comes packaged as a pair of thin packs within a cardboard slipcase. The show wears an appropriate TV 14 rating thanks to some drug innuendos, a little disturbing imagery (hallucinations and supernatural), and young adult themes. Nudity, graphic violence, or obscene language is pretty much nonexistent here. Language options are typical sub & dub meaning the option of original Japanese dialog track (stereo) or an English dub (5.1 Dolby Surround) and English subtitles available under either language choice. Extras are limited to clean opening and closing themes and a host of Funimation trailers.
