A lot of the new anime fans like to brag about computer-generated animation, but I miss the old days of grainy, low-resolution video. The Boogiepop Phantom opening is like a trip through memory lane, taking people back to the days when grainy video made horror look realistic and strangely terrifying.
The opening song was what really drew the old fans into this intro. Shikao Suga’s smooth tenor voice just sounds so cool and enchanting, especially when it’s juxtaposed with montages of the city at night. So cool.
