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 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...
