    According to Anime News Network and TechTV, the following series will be in the rotation starting June 24th:

    * The SoulTaker (Premieres June 24th)
    * Gatekeepers 21 (Premieres July 16th)
    * Boogiepop Phantom (Premieres July 28th)

    I have no comment about Soultaker or Gatekeepers, but I can comment on Boogiepop Phantom. I picked up the series on DVD a few months ago as part of a Right Stuf special.

    Boogiepop Phantom is, like Lain, extremely wierd and slightly depressing. While on the surface, it appears that it's 12 individual stories with a Twilight Zone feeling, there is a common thread that runs through the 12 episodes.

    Thread bump. It appears that they are running a single episode at midnight ET/PT, and repeat the episodes as a block on Friday evenings. So, the schedule appears to be:

    midnight: Soul Taker/Gate Keepers 21
    12:30 AM: Silent Morbious

    Much better schedule, and avoids burning up episodes on what is already short-run series.
