In the far future, a war breaks out between humans and monsters, and humans lose-see Wartime Anime for details! After many years, the defeat has almost been forgotten and humans have accepted subordinate status because the monsters keep largely out of sight and rule the world through fear. A few Melos warriors like Kurofune still keep up the fight in the mighty Aiba Machines. High school boy Bokka has always been fascinated by the legends of the brave Melos Warriors; he meets Kurofune and hears the legend of the Melody of Oblivion. This is a legendary girl, seen and heard only by Warriors, who is waiting to be rescued so that she in turn can save mankind. Bokka finds he too can hear her and joins the fight to bring the beauty of melody back to the world. Based on the manga written by GJK and illustrated by Shinji Katakura, MoO is an often surreal show that recalls some of the strange transformations of Utena or Jojo's Bizarre Adventures, with the motorcycle road trip of Kino's Journey. In a plot point seemingly ripped wholesale from Pete Docter's Monsters Inc. (2001), the monsters feed on the life energy of children in order to create mayhem, leading to some strange contrasts of everyday life and alien attack. Sound plays an important part in the show-there is a conspicuous amount of voice-over and inner monologue which removes the need for lip sync, and the score, as befits a show that foregrounds music itself, is one of the most impressive elements.
