Boogiepop wa Warawanai, ChäoS;HEAd Recommendations
The storylines are completely different but the 2 animes deal with some strange phenomena. Boogiepop Phantom is a really dark anime, the episodes don't seem to be linked but in fact they tell the same story from different points of view. The graphics of Chaos;Head may not seem quite serious but it doesn't matter because the plot is unusual and the story is interesting and breathtaking.
Two very good animes!
Based on illusions, but while Boogiepop Phantom is more "Phantom", Chaos;Head is more "Phantasm" instead.
Both dark shows with a large cast and the viewer is not entirely sure if everyone is crazy or there is a hidden conspiracy.
Aside from the fact that Boogiepop Phantom is much more a cult-series than Chaos;Head, and the latter is definitely easier to digest, Chaos;Head and Boogiepop share their feeling of creepiness and thriller-like mystery surrounding a certain "untouchable person". If anything, Chaos;Head is like Boogiepop, but made accessible for a larger audience. Fans of either that are looking for something similar, but different on the heaviness, give this one a try.
