Boogiepop Phantom

Show Summary

It all started with a bright light in the sky, followed by a strange aura. After that event, gruesome and horrible murders have occurred. Each character tells of their own connection to the event and to a similar murder spree that occurred five years ago. All of the different stories are slowly tied together by seemingly minute similarities and the mystery of Boogiepop Phantom is unraveled. Boogiepop Phantom or Boogiepop Never Laughs () is based on the novel "Boogiepop and Others" written by Kouhei Kadono and illustrated by Kouji Ogata. The first novel, Boogiepop and Others, won the Fourth Dengeki Game Novel Contest in 1997. It was later adapted into a live action movie and a two-volume manga. Boogiepop and Others: The movie, represented as episode 13 in this guide, is a live action adaptation of the novel “Boogiepop and Others”. It was released in Japan on March 11, 2000 and was directed by Ryu Kaneda, and stared Sayaka Yoshino as Miyashita/Boogiepop.moreless

  • this show sucked

    i believed this show was as bad as majesco. It was very hard to follow and watch only 10 minutes of the film before i returned the dvd. Dont waist your time on this one. It hadd a odd story and at times was very boring. They need to make a horror flick anime with suspense and horror not with boredom and nonunderstanding. they should clive barker make a film in anime. It would rockmoreless
  • A strange show but I loved it!

    Boogiepop Phantom was the first anime show that I thought was weird. I've never seen anyone with a spider that was over his or her heart. That was in episode two: Light in the Darkness. You don't find many anime shows that had a sort of weird darkness to it and still come out great.
  • It's not a bad show if you actually paid attention to it.

    Boogiepop Phantom is more than weirdness, blood and gore. It actually delves into the lives of many characters that seem to be undergoing pressures caused by society and their over-expectant parents.



    Most people classify anime to be mostly about cute love stories, awesome fight scenes and kewl hair. Boogiepop Phantom is the opposite. Their hair is not fancy, there's little fight scenes and most stories are tragic.



    Give it a chance, it might make you think because that's what it's all about.moreless
  • Insane following of ghost in a sci-fi setting.

    Good for anyone willing to sit down and watch the whole thing. It is very thought provoking. Though at times it might seem like gibberish, it is always leading somewhere. I have seen the show many a time and would recommemend it to anyone with an absurd sense of humor.
