Irene Salzmann from Splashcomics.de writes that the series takes up well-known conflicts from school and is primarily aimed at young audiences. The story is spiced up with the fantastic element of boogie pop . The characters are personable and the conflicts are understandable. In the further course, however, the characters flattened to clichés and the plot lacked background information, so that some parts would be incomprehensible and the tension suffered. The language is kept very simple and the series would hardly be able to meet the demands of the readers. The recommended reading age from 13 years is set too low in view of the many deaths, especially the repeated loss of people who are popular.
According to Irene Salzmann from Splashcomics.de, Boogiepop Dual has a confusing plot, since a lot of background information is not given and the protagonists are difficult to distinguish. The characters are interesting, but quite flat. The illustrations are appealing and support the mysterious atmosphere.
