  • A Good but Very Unusual Ride
    i saw Melody of Oblivion some time ago and i enjoyed it most of the way through, the show is unusual as all hell and at times it is borderline nonsensical but it was never especially bad, it kept things interesting enough that i just had to see it to the end which, was fairly satisfying.

    the main character starts off as an otherwise ordinary person with a fairly typical life, he goes to school, ...

  • A very surreal show,
    I have been looking for this anime for a long time, mostly due to my finding a clip of it on youtube, the scenes in reference are in episodes 23 & 24... the milk is indeed great today! XD

    just check it out its definitely a trip to remember!

  • Watchable but it finishes weak.
    Will keep this short since other reviews have been very thorough.

    Just in case you missed it this was made in 2004, so it does have a somewhat dated look to the art. The story is halfway decent despite a need for better depth and character development through about episode 19/20. Then it seems they just started throwing random scenery and lots of fan service in until the last episode. ...

    good start, terrible ending
    also to add on to the fact nothing made much sense and felt like an attempt at making pure fanservice.

    Worth the watch , kinda weird
    I guess I will put a little review here cause there are only 5 at the time. I liked this , but not loved it. I am glad I watched it , as it is no where as bad as one review states. It is just a little weird. Kinda in the melancholy of haruhi suzumiya way. Some of the scenes were a little over the top , but all in all a good story that kept me engaged until the end. The main character Bocca , ...

    Brilliant ? I think so
    It took me till the middle of the series to get a grasp on this. It really is a love story especially from the male point of view. All the characters are symbols of what's going on in Boccas head. He meets his love in the first episode and they decide to travel together. Everything from then on is dealing with things that can derail a relationship. OK , The melody girl is the manifestation of ...

    The Melody of Oblivion needs some work.
    I found it to be an enjoyable anime but it constantly feels like its not well funded animations are used over and over and just feel under thought at the end. Plus you feel as though you missed a chapter several time throughout the anime. The music was great, the storyline is different, and the characters were appealing. It also got a little weird at the end.

    what a waste of time
    the other 2 reviews were way too nice and sugar coated for my tastes so i'm just gonna say this anime sucked. "a true gem"? YEAH RIGHT.
    this has got to be one of the worst animes ive ever seen in my life and its the first one i've seen that i would put on a least favorite list. also the first review said "it kind of fun trying to decipher the symbols and metaphors which are thrown at you ...

    Confusing? I'd call it being extremely clever
    Having a look at the other review, I'd disagree with a fair bit of it. I liked it alot more than most people probably would but I still think it is extremely enjoyable.

    The story seems to focus on a war that is thought to have ended in the twentieth century. In the twentieth century, a war was waged between monsters and humans, of which the humans lost. However, while other people moved on and ...

    Pretty good..... I guess.
    Overall, I think I'm gonna say that I enjoyed this anime. I really like how it ties in Mythology, the Chinese Zodiac, classical music and weirdness all into one, haha. The stories behind some of the agents of the Monster Union are really dramatic, interesting and somewhat relatable. There were also some pretty awesome plot twists during the middle and end of the story. I think that some guys might ...
