This batch is the shows I dropped during this winter season. I didn’t pick up all this time, but I think I gave the majority available in Sweden on Wakanim and Crunchyroll (combined) a try.
Boogiepop and Others
An urban legends tells that Boogiepop will relieve you from life, but few knows the truth. One who does know though, is Keiji Takeda (CV: Chiaki Kobayashi) because it turns out his girlfriend has Boogiepop (CV: Aoi Yuuki) sleeping in her subconsciousness, waiting for the abnormalities to show up and to remove them from this world.

I… can’t… even… I don’t know. What did I watch? I don’t know. This film is an adaptation of the game made by QuinRose with the same name, which is the first game in the Alice series.
