What They Say
ABOUT THE BOOGIEPOP PHANTOM TV SERIES:
Since its initial release, the large underground popularity of the Boogiepop Phantom TV series has vaulted it to the rare status of legendary anime cult phenomenon. The series combines 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 are going on and the darkness is taking many forms. Something is out there. Are you safe?

ABOUT THE 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 AI / 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 death... is 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...
