Phantom (ブギーポップは笑わない Boogiepop Phantom, Bugīpoppu wa Warawanai Boogiepop
Boogiepop
Phantom, literally " Boogiepop
Boogiepop
Never Laughs: Boogiepop
Boogiepop
Phantom") is a twelve-episode anime television series produced by Madhouse Studios, based on the Boogiepop light novel series by Kouhei Kadono, particularly that of Boogiepop and Others and Boogiepop
Boogiepop
At Dawn. The series is directed by Takashi Watanabe, from a screenplay by Sadayuki Murai, with original character designs by novel illustrator Kouji Ogata, and sound direction by Yota Tsuruoka. The story takes place in an unnamed Japanese city, a month after a pillar of light appeared in the night sky and five years after a string of serial killings. Boogiepop
Boogiepop
Phantom follows an ensemble cast of characters, mostly high school students, who are witnesses to the incident and its consequences. At the time of the series, high school students have started to disappear again and the blame is placed on Boogiepop, an urban legend who is said to be the personification of Death. Each episode centers on different characters who sometimes have just a short involvement in the major events of the series. For this reason, many scenes are seen twice, from different perspectives, and some episodes are out of sequence, although there is a slow general time progression. An unusual visual style is employed wherein, for all but the last episode, a much reduced color palette is used in conjunction with a vignette effect. The sound design consists of synthesized avant-garde music carried by a leitmotif in the form of an active sonar pulse.[1] Through the non-linear style of the series, the characters are used to develop the central themes of the series: Change, Escapism, Memory, and Relationships. Boogiepop
Boogiepop
Phantom aired from January 5, 2000, to March 22, 2000, on TV Tokyo. The series is licensed and distributed in North America

Summary[edit] See also: Boogiepop
Boogiepop
and Others Five years before the events of Boogiepop
Boogiepop
Phantom, Nagi Kirima met and befriended Shinpei Kuroda, an undercover agent of the Towa organization, at the local prefecture's 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) and the psychological trauma from seeing the dying man (after being hit by More Murder) created her Boogiepop
Boogiepop
persona. The Boogiepop
Boogiepop
at Dawn light novel describes how Dr Kisugi witnessed Nagi's remarkable recovery and, through experimentation on rats, learned of the drug's powers to grant superhuman abilities, before administering it to herself. The drug changed the doctor into a composite human, granting her the vast increase in physical and mental attributes shared with all composite humans and allowing her to sense the hormones that produce fear and develop a craving for them. At first terrorizing her patients and sampling their blood, she then murdered a number of strong-willed girls to consume the fear they produced at the moment of their death.[2] Boogiepop
Boogiepop
Phantom shows how Dr Kisugi gave the drug to her patients, claiming it could heal them, and how it worsened their problems and resulted in their evolution. Kirima investigated the murders, and discovered Dr Kisugi was the serial killer. Nagi and Dr Kisugi confronted each other at the hospital, where The Fire Witch was initially overwhelmed by the doctor’s power, but managed to kill her with Boogiepop's help. The Boogiepop and Others
Boogiepop and Others
novel tells of Manticore, an imperfect clone of the alien entity Echoes, created by the Towa Organization five years later. Escaping the laboratory, Manticore
Manticore
killed Minako Yurihara with the intention of assuming her form when it was found by Masami Saotome. Instead of killing Masami, Manticore
Manticore
struck a deal with him. Manticore
Manticore
(as Minako) and Masami experimented with production of Type S, a highly addictive drug that would enslave all its users to their will, while killing students for Manticore's consumption.[3] Meanwhile, Echoes escaped from the Towa laboratory in chase of Manticore. The alien met up with Nagi Kirima, who was investigating the recent student disappearances. Learning they were being pursued, Masami and Manticore
Manticore
set a trap for Echoes and Nagi. Events culminated one evening at Shinyo Academy, when Masami crippled Echoes with poison and killed Nagi, who did not expect Manticore
Manticore
to have a human ally. Manticore
Manticore
chased Echoes as he attempted to escape with Nagi's body, and beat him to the verge of death. Manticore
Manticore
and Masami were attacked by Boogiepop, who held Manticore
Manticore
in place while Echoes turned himself into light. The light pierced the sky and destroyed Manticore, with Masami committing suicide by flying into the pillar. Nagi was revived by Echoes before he left the planet. Boogiepop
Boogiepop
Phantom is set one month later and revolves around the consequences of the pillar of light. Echoes' light inadvertently allowed the memories of that night to continue as holograms, giving rise to a mixed reality where past and present co-exist,[4] and forced the evolution of the citizens, including those who were administered the Towa drug by Dr Kisugi. The series is concerned with these evolved individuals, how evolution affected their lives, and their disappearance after meeting Boogiepop
Boogiepop
Phantom. The Phantom explains it hid them below the city to save them,[5] and that although their bodies no longer function, their nerves extend across the city so they will keep dreaming until the day the rest of humanity catches up to them.[6] Characters[edit] See also: Characters of the Boogiepop

Boogiepop
(ブギーポップ, Bugīpoppu) is the urban legend whispered of among the female students of Shinyo Academy. Reputed to be an "Angel of Death" with the appearance of a beautiful boy dressed all in black, who comes with a whistle to take girls away before they turn ugly. Few people know that Boogiepop

actually exists, and is the dormant alter ego of Touka Miyashita who rises to the surface when enemies of the world appear. The androgynous reaper hides beneath its signature black cloak and hat, and acts in a mechanical and automatic fashion. Straight-faced and to the point, it speaks in an archaic manner, and seems fond of whistling the overture to Wagner's

Boogiepop
Phantom (ブギーポップ・ファントム, Bugīpoppu Fantomu) is an entity born in the electromagnetic field the moment Echoes' light appeared in the sky. Amongst the memories scattered by the light it could only find Boogiepop's attire, but not his face, and so chose the appearance of Minako Yurihara at random. He claims to be Boogiepop, but later renames himself Boogiepop

and the Fire Witch put a stop to the killings. With the knowledge that her life had been in danger, she developed a fascination for criminal and abnormal psychology, and a desire to not let anything occur around her without her knowing. She desperately seeks the truth behind the unexplained happenings in the city, and meddles with forces best left untouched. Kazuko longs to be closer to Nagi Kirima, who seems to know the answers she seeks. Voiced by: Kyo Nagasawa (Japanese); Anne Benkovitz (English) Manaka Kisaragi (如月真名花, Kisaragi Manaka) is a highly evolved being with the ability to draw memories from her surroundings in the form of butterflies of light. She was given the Towa drug by Dr Kisugi as an unborn child, which caused her abilities to develop. The "devil's child", as she was known, was killed by her dying grandmother. Echoes' light brought Manaka back to life and caused accelerated aging. Her grandmother died soon after. Her insight into people's memories makes her aware of Echoes, whom she emulates.

takes over to do battle. Touka is not aware this is happening, as she deletes her memories of being Boogiepop, and carries all of Boogiepop's effects in a Spalding sports bag without realizing it. Voiced by: Kaori Shimizu (Japanese), Debora Rabbai (English) Themes[edit] Boogiepop
Boogiepop
Phantom is a story that primarily deals with change[7] and how perceptions change as people grow older.[8] The theme of change is represented not only by the ongoing struggle between the Towa organization and the evolved humans, but also by the way the look of the city is changing and through the growth of children into adults.[7] Similar to the theme of change, the concept of moving on and not being stuck in the past is integral to the story as both Boogiepop
Boogiepop
and Boogiepop
Boogiepop
Phantom confront Manaka for what they perceive as keeping people stuck in the past.[9] However, the series' view on change is presented ambiguously, as while the Towa organization seeks to prevent change in the world,[10] it has world domination as its agenda.[11] Boogiepop
Boogiepop
parallels this dualism as he encourages people to move forward with their lives[12] while hunting down evolved humans thus preventing the possible transformation of society.[13] Retreat from reality and the consequences of escapism are important themes that play a major role in the series.[13] The image of burning memories to forget them and so escape them is used throughout the latter half of the series to symbolize the theme of escapism.[14] For the characters Misuzu and Yoji, their retreat from reality has devastating consequences: Misuzu enters a despairing insanity after being forced to realize the truth of her reality, while Yoji goes through a mental breakdown as his reality is no longer the fantasy he believed it to be.[13] However, the question as to how people should live their lives goes unanswered by the series.[15] Later on in the series, retreat from reality is revisited in the form of Poom Poom, who represents the ultimate escape from reality into childhood.[13] Relationships, and the tragedy of loss and misunderstanding inherent within them, are major themes in Boogiepop
Boogiepop
Phantom.[16][17] The relationships that the characters Mamoru, Manaka, and Shizue have with their parents highlights the lack of support that children receive from parents who are otherwise busy, and the resulting disconnection between parents and children.[13] With the actions of Poom Poom later in the series the theme of the Pied Piper is explored, as Poom Poom takes away the children because the parents have broken their promise.[18] The message the show leaves the viewer however is positive, as both Manaka and Shizue reconcile with their mothers, and so the parent-child relationship can be saved by open communication and understanding.[13] Another form of relationship is explored through the interaction between Moto and Manticore
Manticore
Phantom, where the physical surrender of Moto, who harbored feelings for Masami, associates the sexual relationship with death.[19] Boogiepop
Boogiepop
Phantom is also a series that is about memory and how memories help define who we are.[16] For most of the characters, their memories of the past and background are crucially important in determining the direction their lives have taken.[19] Production[edit]

Boogiepop
Boogiepop
Phantom was conceived as an original story taking place after the events of the novels Boogiepop and Others
Boogiepop and Others
and Boogiepop
Boogiepop
at Dawn. Sadayuki Murai developed the series concept and wrote the screenplay for both the anime and the live-action prequel Boogiepop and Others, having previously worked on the script for Perfect Blue, a feature film that explored many similar themes.[20] The character designer and key animator Shigeyuki Suga had been a key animator for Serial Experiments Lain, a series with which Boogiepop
Boogiepop
Phantom is often compared.[1] The reduced brightness and sepia color palette for most of the episodes, added to the anxieties and depressions of the characters, were designed to make the series play like a psychological horror. Production staff later commented that the color scheme was more effective than they had originally intended, and were surprised by how bleak the series turned out. A mixed media campaign was planned which would have had the live action prequel Boogiepop and Others
Boogiepop and Others
released before the anime series, with the idea that people would watch the anime after seeing the movie, but the release of the film was delayed until after the series had neared the end of its original run, and so this strategy failed. Artistic homages[edit] Many homages are made to other works throughout Boogiepop
Boogiepop
Phantom. In particular, musical references are a characteristic trait of the Boogiepop
Boogiepop
novels, such as the character Echoes being an allusion to the Pink Floyd
Pink Floyd
song of the same name, which itself is a possible allusion to 2001: A Space Odyssey with its themes of evolution and transcendence. Another possible allusion comes in the form of a sonar-ping sound effect utilized throughout the series. The intro to Echoes was devised from an experiment where the band tried to recreate that particular sound on a grand piano. Further, Towa agent Spooky Electric is a homage to a personality Prince claims to have that encouraged him to write The Black Album.[21] The trend of referencing music was carried over to the anime as well. Episode five, which is one of the few episodes not to focus on a specific character, is named "Interlude" after a break in a musical play. "She's So Unusual" was the name of Cyndi Lauper's debut album, while "My Fair Lady" was the title of a popular musical made in 1956. "Until Ure in My Arms Again" and Poom Poom are Prince singles, and AC/DC
AC/DC
released the single Snake Eye. Mythology also plays a large part in Boogiepop
Boogiepop
Phantom. Two of the main protagonists are said to be Shinigami,[22][23] death deities of Japanese folklore
Japanese folklore
who can take on many forms. Kitsune
Kitsune
are fox spirits of Japanese folklore, they possess magical powers that increase with age and are capable of assuming human form, with Boogiepop
Boogiepop
being described as a kitsune by Touka Miyashita's parents.[24] The Manticore is named after the man-eater of Persian mythology,[25] sometimes described as being a chimera with the face of a beautiful women, or to inhabit the forests of Asia and kill with a single scratch or bite, before devouring the entire body leaving no evidence. The title of episode eleven "Under the Gravity's Rainbow" is a homage to the novel Gravity's Rainbow
Gravity's Rainbow
by Thomas Pynchon, which is known for ripping the normal rules of narrative and character development wide open and covering specialist knowledge from many fields, and is subsequently criticized for being "difficult" and "unreadable". The famous quote by philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche
Friedrich Nietzsche
"God is Dead" was used as the title of the CD given to Panuru, who didn't believe in the existence of God. Music[edit]

media

Yota Tsuruoka was the sound and music director for Boogiepop
Boogiepop
Phantom. The soundtrack for the series featured many artists and various styles, ranging from Gregorian to electronic.[1] The opening theme song "Evening Shower" (夕立ち, Yuudachi), which was also used as the ending theme for the live action prequel Boogiepop
Boogiepop
and Others, was composed, arranged, and performed by Shikao Suga. Kyoko composed and performed the ending song "Future Century Secret Club" (未来世紀㊙クラブ, Mirai Seiki Maruhi Club). The Boogiepop Phantom soundtrack was published by AnimeTrax and released by The Right Stuf International as a two-disc CD on 30 April 2002.[26] The songs "Evening Shower" and "Future Century Secret Club" were not included on the OST with the rest of the soundtrack, but were instead released separately by the artists. "Evening Shower" was published on 8 September 1999, prior to the initial airing of the series, on Shikao Suga’s album Sweet,[27] while Kyoko’s "Future Century Secret Club" was initially released as a single of the same name on 9 February 2000, and later as part of an album titled Under The Silk Tree on 8 November 2000.[28] Releases[edit]

later announced that they would also broadcast the series with the premiere on 28 July 2003.[38] Since then, the rights to broadcast the series have been acquired by Funimation Channel, and the series aired in early 2007.[39] Critical reception[edit] Boogiepop
Boogiepop
Phantom was a hit.[40] The "spooky sepia puzzle"[41] juggles an ensemble cast of characters, each with unique point of view, while revealing tidbits about the larger plot in a nonlinear fashion.[42] Christopher Macdonald of Anime
Anime
News Network gives special mention to Sadayuki Murai's skill as a screenwriter,[43] for being able to keep the viewer engrossed as well as tying all elements and plot threads by the final episode.[44] But the series' intricate nature is counterproductive.[42] Its increasingly convoluted plot can discourage people from watching,[43] and viewers not familiar with the Boogiepop universe will leave with "more questions than answers".[45][46] The reduced color palette was applauded for highlighting the sense of "mental disease" and "emotional malaise" that affected most of the characters,[41] while the vignette effect allowed the viewer to observe inside the series rather than just watch it.[42] Character designs have been criticized as "bland"[43] but also "realistic"[44] since none of the characters have "outrageous hair styles or colors".[47] Reviews also recognized that "astute viewers may notice some rather interesting, although not very blatant, differences between the various characters",[43] and that the "realistic" character designs created a degree of "normalcy" that was important to the story[44] while also helping to draw in the viewer.[47] The audio of the series has been described as "unique"[1] and "incredible",[42] going beyond what is expected of normal sound design and enhancing the "creepy" atmosphere of the show.[47] Also noted was that the opening and ending songs don't appear to fit in well with the mood of the series.[44] The English language track was not as well received as its Japanese counterpart, but still reviewed favorably.[43] In particular, the performance of Jessica Calvello in the English dub was singled out and praised as being her best performance to date.[19] References[edit]
