Boogiepop wa Warawanai (light novel) is getting a TV anime adaptation for 2018.

Premise

There is an urban legend that children tell one another about a shinigami that can release people from the pain they may be suffering. This "Angel of Death" has a name: Boogiepop. And the legends are true. Boogiepop is real.
When a rash of disappearances involving female students breaks out at Shinyo Academy, the police and faculty assume they just have a bunch of runaways on their hands. But Nagi Kirima knows better. Something mysterious and foul is afoot. Is it Boogiepop, or something more sinister...?
(Seven Seas Entertainment)

Looks like this is going to be a reboot of Boogiepop Phantom.

Directed by Shingo Natsume? Now that's a plus.

If it's an adaptation of the LN then I think it'll be prequel to the 2000 anime.
