I came across this:

Is the dark, depressing, mindf-ck of Boogiepop Phantom about to get a redo or an update?

Actually, this looks more like an action anime than the psychological breakdown that was the classic Boogiepop Phantom. First of all, the images are obviously brighter.

I was disappointed, though not surprised, with the two FLCL sequels. I hope not to be disappointed with the new Boogiepop. But quite frankly, the wonderful dark depression of Boggiepop Phantom will be hard to replicate.
