Now that the Winter season is mostly over, this is where the anime ended up on my list. The Reader's Poll results will be announced later today.
Boogiepop wa Warawanai Episode 12 and 13 Review - Another arc closed, another slow build to very little, but at least this one seemed to be filling in a lot of the missing connections.
Boogiepop wa Warawanai Episode 11 Review - lots of talking in a hospital, and rat experimentation.
Boogiepop wa Warawanai episodes 9 and 10 wrap up the Imaginator arc and kick off the new story. However, as has become fairly customary we're left with more questions than answers and some fairly thin babble to try to close out one mystery. While there is a sense of forward momentum that was sadly lacking in the beginning, the overall experience of watching Boogiepop is still a pretty ordinary one.
Boogiepop wa Warawanai Episode 8 Review - After episodes of very little happening, this episode seemed to be in a rush to pack in a lot. That said, we don't seem all that much further along but at least while watching there was a sense of forward movement.
Boogiepop wa Warawanai Episode 7 Review - Well, conceptually this remains interesting and the execution remains incredibly dull. I actually did fall asleep during this episode and had to go back and watch again. As much as I'd love to know what is going on, I just find each and every character here completely flat.
While we aren't quite half-way through the Winter anime season, I'm just taking a moment to take stock, look at my watch list, and I'm trying to predict which of the shows I'm watching will actually hold out until the end of the season to be my favourite. In the meantime, I'd love to know what you are watching, what you've dropped, what you think will be anime of the season, and what you think is going to fall apart.
Boogiepop wa Warawanai Episode 6 Review:
Boogiepop wa Warawania Episode 5 review: While saying this is getting better is a positive, the problem is that even better there's still plenty of room for improvement. Shallow characterisation is making it difficult to care about any of the events unfolding and not caring is certainly death for a mystery.
