In addition to these new releases, Seven Seas announced that they will be the Boogiepop light novels with additional volumes! They will be printed as 2 omnibus editions and will be available as of October 1, 2018. They will also be available digitally as single volume releases.

Seven Seas describes the story of Boogiepop as follows:

There’s an urban legend that children tell about a shinigami that can release people from the pain they are suffering. This “Angel of Death” has a name: Boogiepop. And the legends are true. Boogiepop is real. Told in a non-linear fashion that asks the reader to piece together the sequence of events to solve the mysteries alongside the characters, Kouhei Kadono‘s first Boogiepop novel took First Place in Media Works’ Dengeki Game Novel Contest in 1997 and ignited the Japanese “light novel” trend.
