Overview
1: portraits from memory
Within the light and within the city is death, and when the power failed the world changed. In the air is flux. Within the night is Boogiepop Phantom ... if you meet her one dark night with a dark soul ... no one has ever lived to tell.

Within Boogiepop Phantom is your salvation ... or your end ... or perhaps ... both.

2: portraits in darkness
Jonouchi is cursed with vision: he sees the world's evil that no one else can. Powerless to avoid it, crushed by the burden, and pushed beyond his limits, his existance has a single purpose: change. He travels the city removing the pain in others ... but it carries a price.

How complete can a life be if it is without pain?

3: life can be so nice
Misuzu lives a terrible lie ... and a lie that conveniently serves something quite malevolent. Her life changed some years ago in many ways: some subtle and others less so. By adopting an alien philosophy, her world changed.

One way or another, many of us serve another who holds power. Some fail to recognize it until too late, though.
