Looks like this is going to be one of those series that when you go back to rewatch episodes you get more info that changes the story... again and again.
Interesting so far. I wonder if it'll stay that way though.

Alright, watched 1 episode so far.

The mention of "split personalties" and that guy looking up MPD triggers me so hard I can't even talk about it :' ) Since not-Touka mentioned it was the closest thing to describe it, but not actual Dissociative Identity Disorder, I hope it's not going to be mentioned anymore.
Would be interesting to see what the actual explaination of her (seemingly sudden) dual personality is


Giiiirrrrl. What is up with the hat? WHY


I do think it could potentially be an interesting story. I like mysterious happenings and the murder does raise my interest. It just feels a bit bland so far (just like the art, tbh), nothing very special. But who knows, it might spark my interest more in future.
Let's give it a try

Btw this series is the one what started the LN craze in Japan.

Basically every LN you see ranging from Monogatari to Re Zero was done because of this.

Second episodes is better you say @Arjuna ... how much better?

I mean, I watched the first one and was honestly not feeling it. It had a dark atmosphere and looked visually good but the characters and premise just did nothing for me. Is that going to change?

Less of the dull boring dude. :nrr More interesting chara... women. Explains the first episode a bit more..... think this might be more of a series more to Lambu or Vandred then you. :nod Still a bit bland but it’s got some elements introduced in the second episode that might be really interesting.

I'm liking this renewal of the series so far, but Boogiepop Phantom is going to be hard to beat. This is a non linear story that can be hard for most people to follow, and I hazard a guess that many people won't appreciate what this story has to offer. Something this unique can't really be shown on a screen as well as in words.

That storyline ended fast. :derp Still the episode was interesting. The stuff with Echoes was kind of a weak. And I liked his character too. It explained everything too quickly as well... kind of had been thinking we were going a Baccano route but we didn’t :XD.

I especially like the closing music in this series.
Is the guy who can visualize people's plants an Imaginator too or just some guy with an ability?

I like the OST but that simply wasn't enough. Dropped the show because I really don't want to deal with this storytelling.

Let's see what happens.

Why do I get the feeling that this show could easily be taking place in the same world as Toaru Majutsu no Index?

I am also getting the feeling that I wouldn't recognize 'closure' in this series if it bit me in the.... well... you get the idea.
Still hanging on the fence because the show interests me and the music is good... i just feel unsatisfied so far.

Episodes 10 to 13 will air back to back (2 hours special) in 23 February will cover the "Yoake no Boogiepop" arc.
The anime will also adapt the "Overdrive Waikyoku-ou" arc

Seems this will end in One Cour

Well the problem I personally find is they should explain things more and avoid non linear storyline here.

Episode 6:
I'm hoping I'm going to see an episode where everything comes together and it all makes sense... looks like today just isn't it.
