Everyone knows about Boogiepop: meet her one dark night and you are taken. People tell each other the stories and laugh: no one believes that she exists in this day and age. Still, there are some strange things that appear to be going on just below the surface. Five years ago, there was a string of grisly murders that shook the city to its core ... and in the present, psychic echoes reverberate.
