Synopsis

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.

Background

Seven Seas Entertainment published the first three and the sixth volume of the series in English from January 14, 2006 to August 5, 2008, before dropping the series due to low sales. The publisher later re-released these volumes digitally with new copy-editing. The publisher has licensed the fourth and fifth volume, and plans to release the first six volumes in two omnibus volumes.

“I am automatic. When I detect adversity approaching, I float to the surface. That’s why I am Boogiepop—phantasmal, like bubbles.”

Boogiepop is a light novel series written by Kouhei Kadona and drawn by Ogata Kouji. The premise revolves around the character Boogiepop. A Shinigami that takes over the body of Miyashita Touka and tends to deal with certain characters and creatures that post danger to the world. Most of the review will focus on the first story ‘Boogiepop and Others’ as that is probably the most well read more
