    Lowdown:

    There is an urban legend that children tell one another about a shinigami that can release people from the pain they may be suffering. This "Angel of Death" has a name—Boogiepop. And the legends are true. Boogiepop is real.

    I'm pretty sure I won't be able to make head or tail of this for the first couple of episodes. It's been some time since I watched the 2000 series. But I remember that hospital and the doctor was highly suspicious.

    Will wait until it finishes airing, then I'll watch the previous series before getting into this one.

    Oh this is a remake? Is it scene for scene or something like ghost in the shell arise with a retelling of the basic story?

    It is definitely going in a different than i thought .
    i thought it was all going TO be psychological and nothing real was happening

    So long as it doesnt become an all out gore fest i think ill ll be happy with this one. So far two eps in im good with it.

    Nah, it isn't a remake. It's an adaptation of a new story from the source novel.


    I thought I'd jump right into it but I guess I'll start watching this once half of it has aired.

    Think Mob Psycho and Dororo would be alright to watch weekly.

    Apparently, as per the Blu-ray Disc and DVD home video release listing, the show's getting 18 episodes.

    18 ep?

    Wow ep 3 has a firm ending. I guess it will be interesting to see where they go with it. It also seemed like a mini movie with that story set. Its a bit gory but its generally done in shadows so i can handle it.

    I do like this. Its so odd. Its not a classic action seriesbut its not a straight psychological. and now we got a new character. It is interesting when they throw in those twists.

    News to you if you follow the light novel series:


    The anime will adapt the Boogiepop at Dawn novel (the sixth novel in the series) in the anime's 10th to 13th episodes. These episodes are scheduled to air together as a two-hour special.

    The anime is currently adapting the Boogiepop Returns: VS Imaginator novels (the second and third novels in the series) as of the fourth episode. The anime will also adapt Boogiepop Overdrive: The Piper (the fifth novel in the series), but it has not been specified when this story will debut. The anime adapted the first novel in its first three episodes.

    Thanks kuze. So that's why it feels just a little different.

    I'll start watching once the VS Imaginator episodes have aired. Which is prolly around the 9th episode.

    I had to reread that it will have 18 ep. Looks like this might be end of season one then. ep9 was really good . It really wrapped up the imginator arc nicely.

    Its weird its got the spectre of indecipherable gobbdlygook like durarara had (spectre not saying it wasnt understandabld it was just so all over the place that ig left your head spinning).

    Boogiepop isnt at the same level as durarara in terms of misdirecting you but you do keep wondering whats going on.

    Ill be looking forward to more.

    Also great news, they just released episodes 10-13 today in one go. Guess they're planning to end the 18 episode series by this winter season and save monies on airtime slot.
