Boogiepop wa Warawanai (2019) Review — C

It took me about ten episodes before I realized it was Boogiepop, not Boogiepoop.

Boogiepoop would have been better. I prefer shit to this pop psychology mumbo jumbo.

I feel like this is something I would have enjoyed much more when I was younger. Now, I:

  1. Can’t be bothered actually think about this and try to figure out what’s going on, since I don’t care enough.
  2. Can’t be bothered to even remember who half the characters are between episodes. This is way more complicated than it needs to be.
  3. Think that all of the characters just need to get over themselves. Seriously kids, just chill.
  4. Think the whole show takes itself way too seriously. The main character is named after boogers and poop, what is with all this depressing philosophical bullshit?

Basically, it feels to me like something written by an edgy teenager. It has this constant moody tone and the characters are always giving lengthy articulate speeches about some silly philosophical thing that nobody actually cares about but that somehow defines their entire existence. I really do not miss middle school.

Maybe I’m just grumpy and old. Oh well. I don’t have the patience for this kind of stuff anymore.

One thing we can all agree on though: Boogiepop’s voice acting is damn sexy.

  • Storytelling – D – Complicated and confusing.
  • Voice – C – Unique voice. I didn’t like it one bit.
  • Characters – C – Maybe they’d be good if I could remember them.
  • Attention Grab – C – Struggled to keep my attention.
  • Production – C – Looks like it was made in the 90s. I assume that was the intention.
  • Overall – C
