The Melody of Oblivion DVD Review

The Melody of Oblivion DVD Review is now available in the reviews section and here. Since I pretty much summed up everything I deemed important in the review here’s some light trivia about the series:

  • The mechanical baby dolls shown in the series are “duplicates” of Kewpei – the famous mascot for a Japanese Mayonnaise company by the same name.
  • The names of the attacks used by the Melos Warriors are all names of winning hand in Poker.
  • Some characters in the series are named after a single English letter. For example, one girl is called Q, while another woman is called P.
  • Sayoko’s chain was designed to have the same ability as Haruko’s chain (from FLCL). However, unlike Haruko’s chain Sayoko’s chain actually functions from time to time.
  • All the women in the world of the Melody of Oblivion possess large breasts. This is presented as a fact of nature. Coco, the only woman with real proportioned breasts, is said to still be a child.
  • The Melody of Oblivion is one of the rare series in which Japanese money bills are depicted in realistic detail.
