  • Mystery Science Theater Presents Boogiepop
    This show is definitely not for everyone. I would have to say feels a lot like Ghost in the Shell or Psycho Pass with how it tries to focus on dialogue over action. Each arc delves into a different aspect of human existence and the philosophical questions surrounding. Sometimes the concepts aren't really broken down and still require some homework.

    I went into this show having never seen the ...

  • Seemed promising, but.....
    The anime seemed promising and with potential at the start. The "kira" like villain at the start of the series seemed to be a very interesting character. Was extremely disappointed at how quickly and effortlessly he was disposed of. The rest of the characters seemed shallow. Boggie Pop herself seemed interesting at the start. Her cool, overpowered character seemed cool at the start. I quickly grew ...

    Boogiepop is a Masterpiece
    The last Boogiepop anime aired back in 2000. We've had to wait 18 years for the new show. I for one, think it was well worth the wait, and that it's even better than the original.

    It's easily one of the most recognizable titles in anime, and I'm not surprised that all the more impatient people on CR don't like it, or feel like they can't understand it. Let's face it, for people who feel this ...

  • Good anime. Not enough action though.
    Anyone watching this show, has to really pay attention. The show becomes complex when it goes back & forth on the timelines. I will need to rewatch this to grasp a better understanding. That is the only reason I gave the show a 4-star rating. Besides that, BoogiPop is a good anime to watch.

    A taste of ages past
    Boogiepop and others is an adaptation of a light novel series that began in the 90s and it retains much of the flavor that made titles of that era so distinct. Much like Evangelion or Serial Experiments Lain, Boogiepop isn't afraid of doing its own thing, marching to its own drumbeat, even if that does lead to some people decrying it as being 'pretentious' or 'confusing.' Boogiepop provides the ...

    #264. Waste of time, just being honest.
    Let me say this right now, I have never seen or read any of the past material for Boogiepop. This series very well could be better if you have seen it's predecessor beforehand. However since this is a review about this 2019 version and nothing else, my opinions will continue to carry weight regardless. Usually I start my review with a small introduction to the anime, for those that are reading ...

  • Ignore everone trying to scare you off.
    It's not "hard to understand" ...it's not even that complex. It follows a set of rules and once you know them that is it. So I'll review this as someone watching anime (not someone looking for the meaning of life)

    Storytelling: Very good
    Animation: not terrible but I've seen better
    Character Development: pretty good considering the setup

    Overall: A great anime that takes about 2 episodes ...

  • Intriguing, strange and beautiful
    I just wanted to give it 5 stars, I don’t have a well thought out review. I like how unique and strange the show feels, and I appreciate that not everything is clear right away (I like slow buildups that take patience but then are rewarding). And I find the visuals and music beautiful.

  • Well I can't understand a thing but whatever.
    This series is very hard to understand. Be it psychological and philosophical elements it contains or even remembering names of characters, It is very hard to watch and understand.(English isn't my mother language maybe that's also a factor.) However I watched 16 episodes so far and I loved series. I already saved a few quotes to my favorite anime quotes list so I will give it 9/10. I will ...
