Boogie pop and others is the 2019 anime adaptation of a very old script in the dark fantasy and horror genre. Originally based on a light novel written by Kouhei Kadono, the story has been adapted into many manga and TV productions. The 2019 anime series directed by Shingo Natsume (director of One-Punch Man) was created by the Madhouse studio. We know the studio, which has been drawing under many successful anime since 2000, with Death Note anime. More recently, we took a look at the studio’s productions such as: One Punch Man and No guns live† The anime, licensed by crunchy rolls and Funimationoriginally aired on AT-X, Tokyo MX, TV Aichi, KBS, SUN, BS11 from January 4, 2019 to March 29, 2019. After the first season of 18 episodes in total, fans are raving about the second season† Will there be a second season of the series?
What was the storyline of Boogiepop and others?
There is an urban legend that children tell each other; about a shinigami who can save people from their misery. This is the name of the “Angel of Death”: Boogiepop, and what is said about it is true. Boogiepop and its talent do exist. When schoolgirls at Shinyo Academy disappear one by one, the police and faculty have to admit they have a lot of refugee cases. However, Nagi Kirima knows the truth better than anyone who thinks these events are due to a creature called Boogiepop; he’s looking for it but can’t find it anywhere. Something too mysterious and sinister things are about to begin. Is it Boogiepop or more devils doing this?
Will there be a second season of the series?
The anime series has not renewed yet for a second season. Neither Madhouse neither the broadcasters mentioned an extension for the series’ second season. It can take years for anime to be renewed for a new season. Here we can make some predictions.
As we mentioned before, the anime is an adaptation of a light novel series that aired in 1998. As you can see from the list below, there are many main books and many side stories that are not written here. The anime only includes a few books from the long list below. (It includes 5 of the first 6 novels. The 4th novel is omitted.) There are plenty of resources for the second and even a third season of the anime.

When is the release date of Boogiepop and others season 2?
The anime hasn’t been updated yet, but plenty of source material is available. Popularity is going well. We think the anime, which is also a great advertising opportunity in the sale of its books, will continue for a second season. The anime started running a year after its announcement. Based on this information, we can consider the average production time as one year. If there is an extension, we can expect a new season of the anime in 2021, but there isn’t one Boogie Pop and Others Season 2 not yet in Madhouse’s plan for 2021.
Old Anime Adaptation (Boogiepop Phantom)
Boogie pop and others is not the only anime in the story released in 2019. In the early 2000s, the anime adaptation was released with the first books. Viewers waiting for the second season can also watch this adaptation to pass the time. Madhouse created the anime series Boogiepop Phantom just like the new version. It consists of 12 episodes in total. You can watch the trailer below:
