A Nice Supernatural Anime

on 12/12/2012

I have seen a lot of good anime this one is no exception. This anime is very dark and mysterious but entertaining. This series may seem random, but, trust me, it will all make sense in the end. It also has a hidden meaning in it as well. My only advise to you is pay careful attention when watching this anime. It is confusing and sometimes it won't make sense to you at all, but if you keep watching the episodes you'll get it.

Product Overview

The ground breaking horror series returns! Based on the best-selling Boogiepop novels by Kouhei Kadono, Boogiepop is a brilliant masterpiece of a psycho-thriller that delves into the darkest depths of the human condition and exposes it.

This new Boogiepop Thinpak Collection contains both the original 12-episode anime cult phenomenon Boogiepop Phantom TV series as well as its live-action counterpart movie Boogiepop and Others to form a perfect package for horror fans.

Boogiepop Phantom TV Series: Combining the amazing animation techniques of Studio Madhouse (Trinity Blood, Texhnolyze, Death Note, Ninja Scroll, Vampire Hunter D) with direction by Watanabe Takashi (Slayers, Ikki Tousen, Shakugan no Shana) and screenplays by Sadayuki Murai (Millennium Actress, Perfect Blue, Steamboy) to produce a mind-bending story combining the stylistic nature of Serial Experiments Lain or Texhnolyze with the episodic nature and dark twisting plotlines of Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction.

Five years ago, a string of grisly murders shook the city to its core and now the rumors have begun once more. Boogiepop...Everyone knows about Boogiepop: meet her one dark night and you are taken. People tell each other the stories and laugh: no one believes that she can possibly exist in this day and age. Still, strange things appear to be going on just and the darkness is taking on many forms. Something is out there. Are you safe?

Boogiepop and Others Live-Action Movie: With scenario work by Sadayuki Murai (Boogiepop Phantom, Perfect Blue, Cowboy Bebop) and directed by Ryu Kaneda (Video Girl A.I., Shenmue), Boogiepop and Others is the quietly chilling tale of ten high school students whose lives are all intertwined in a twisted and deadly web of secrets.

The cold dead of night is a dangerous time to be near the Shinyo Academy. Girls have begun to mysteriously disappear without a trace, and the school is alive with rumors. Some say the girls are just runaways, but with each new disappearance, a lingering fear grows ever stronger - fear that a shinigami...the very spirit of prowling through the streets of the city. They say you never see it coming...a lone whistle splits the dark silence, and it suddenly appears behind you to steal your soul...

ReviewSource MovieRapture
Review [Phantom] Takashi Watanabe's twelve episode animated television series Boogiepop Phantom is both atmospheric and visually distinctive...Each episode of Boogiepop Phantom tells a separate story, although all of these are loosely but intricately interrelated. The character around whom a given story revolves may not be the focus of any other, but it is almost certain that the viewer will see that character again in different episodes...Boogiepop Phantom is among the most inventive television series I have encountered. It is visually distinctive, narratively creative, and thematically daring.
