Cartoon Central: Boogiepop Phantom

Post  Admin on Wed Oct 13, 2010 11:26 am

Five Years Before The Events Of Boogiepop Phantom, Nagi Kirima Met And Befriended Shinpei Kuroda, An Undercover Agent Of The Towa Organization, At The Local Prefectural Hospital. Nagi Was Hospitalized Because She Was Dying As Her Body Was Evolving. Shinpei, Upon Learning The Truth Behind Nagi's Sickness, Betrayed The Towa Organization And Administered A Stolen Towa Drug To Nagi That Saved Her Life. He Was Mortally Wounded By Towa Agents As He Fled From The Hospital, Leaving The Drug Behind In The Process. Touka Miyashita Came Across Shinpei (As The Towa Agent Scarecrow) & The Psychological Trauma From Seeing The Dying Man (After Being Hit By More Murder) Created Her Boogiepop Persona.
Boogiepop Phantom Aired In Japan From January Thru March Of The Year 2000, But How Would One Describe It? That Is A Very Good Question. In My Humble (And Not Always Accurate) Opinion, I Find This Anime Dark & Foreboding....Containing A Considerable Amount Of Teenage Angst & Symbolism. (Be Warned...Some Scenes Are Quite Gruesome.)
A Powerful Beam Of Light Brightens The Sky One Evening Setting The Stage For The Strange Events That Follow. Young, High School Students Begin To Mysteriously Disappear Or Worse...Are Found Murdered. Some Believed It Is The Fault Of The Unusually Cloaked Women Referred To As Boogiepop. Just Who Is She? Many Think She's The Angel Of Death, But Are They Misunderstanding Her True Intentions? And Just What Is This Secret Organization Observing Our World?
I Found Each Episode To Be A Bit Confusing Yet Interesting. It Spans A Five Year Period. Every Episode (Except The Very Last) Is Depicted In Dark, Gloomy, Monotone Colors. It's Almost As If You're Watching In Black & White. The Last Episode Represents An Uplifting & Is Bright & Colorful. If Your Anime Preference Is Mecha Or Humor, This One Probably Won't Suit You. However, Watch The First Episode & Judge For Yourself. If Anything, Watch It Just To Hear The Opening Theme Entitled "Evening Shower"....It's A Soulful, Jazzy Tune That I Truly Loved.

The Past Will Often Attack The Present With The Pain Of Your Memories. (Seiichi Kirima)
