Boogiepop and Others Title changing

Postby sven7 » Mon Feb 11, 2019 8:23 am

The title for Boogiepop and Others keeps getting changed to Boogiepop Never Laughs. While the direct translation of 'Boogiepop wa waranai' is that and the novel was "Boogiepop Never Laughs - Boogiepop and Others -- ANN and Crunchyroll have it as Boogiepop and Others. Is it possible to lock it or is that still not possible?

It's not possible to lock JUST the title. If we do that, it's going to lock the entire series.
But yes, it's definitely Boogiepop and Others, and it should stay that way. It has always been Boogiepop and Others in English ever since the first announcement (NB: this is the Japanese Kadokawa channel), there should be no ambiguity here at all.

Thanks for the refresher/reminder. It seems to have stayed for now...

Yep - no ambiguity there.

Happened again. Guess we can't see who is doing it, right?
