Boogiepop Phantom is one of my favorite anime series, and also one of the creepiest. Boogiepop and Others proves to be, surprisingly, an incredibly worthwhile addition to the Boogiepop universe, with one caveat. This movie is purely for fans of the television show; this will not provide an easy entry point to new viewers.
The show featured 13 mostly standalone stories, that were all connected in manners both slight, such as characters glimpsed or mentioned in the background, and major. Each story pivoted around a mysterious event that had happened five years earlier, and while the show never does more than hint olbiquely at what that event was, the movie takes us back in time to delve more deeply into the cause of the strange and horrific events.
