Quick Summary
The Wallflower is about Sunako Nakahara a high school student who shuns trying to be beautiful or feminine and enjoys such morbid hobbies as watching banned horror movies while hanging out with preserved body parts and creepy anatomical models. Why does Sunako act as she does? She was turned down and called ugly by her first love and she decided to stop caring about how she looks if the end result is that she will always be considered ugly. Sunako’s aunt is concerned for her niece and this lifestyle change. Her aunt is the owner of a beautiful mansion where four very handsome students are her tenants.
