An essential missing piece of the puzzle.
11 September 2004 | by (Wales, UK) – See all my reviews

If Your a fan of the Anime Boogiepop Phantom and was left confused then You must get a hold of this movie since it covers the events leading up to the pillar of light and explains some of the unexplained elements in the Anime, actually a feeling I got from this movie is that the original idea was to release a series of movies but instead it continued in its Anime form.

Overall Boogiepop & Others (based on the original novel) is very similar to the Anime in which events are told out of order from different characters view points, the acting is strong and the plot is very well paced with a great cast of unique characters.

My only real complaints are that I think the relationship between Saotome and the Manticore is under developed and could have used some extra time spent on it and I think that Boogiepop and Echoes are both under used considering their importance, but overall this is a solid movie well worth checking out.
