Don’t miss the brand-new anime based on the light novels: Boogiepop and Others!
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.
Told in a non-linear fashion that asks the reader to piece together the sequence of events to solve the mysteries alongside the characters, Kouhei Kadono’s first Boogiepop novel took First Place in Media Works’ Dengeki Game Novel Contest in 1997 and ignited the Japanese “light novel” trend. Today, there are millions of Boogiepop novels in print, a feature film, multiple manga series, and the anime series Boogiepop Phantom and Boogiepop and Others.
