A great war occurred in the 20th century between humans and monsters. Since that time, the monsters rule the world in fear but keep relatively hidden from public view. A boy named Bokka ponders the past and wonders what became of the Meros Warriors who defended the world so bravely against the demons. He soon meets Kurofune and learns of the power of the Meros and the I-bar machines they ride in battle. Warriors are the only ones who can see and hear the Melody of Oblivion, a phantom girl hidden away waiting to be rescued and be the savior of mankind. During a battle between Kurofune and a demon, Bokka discovers something only his wildest dreams could possibly imagine...he too can hear that melody. Throughout his journeys, Bokka meets many monsters and their agents, friends, and companions as he discovers the true extent of his new powers. He must continue to battle evil in the hope of releasing Boukyaku no Senritsu and free a world that has forgotten its once beautiful melody.
Während des 20. Jahrhunderts erlebte die Welt einen großen Krieg. Ein Krieg zwischen den Menschen und den Monstern. Mit Worten lassen sich die Verbrechen, die in diesen Krieg begangen wurden, nicht beschreiben. Am Ende sollten die Monster diesen Krieg gewinnen. Einige Zeit ist seitdem vergangen und ein neues Jahrhundert hat begonnen. Und die Menschheit hat diese Melodie vergessen...
Das Leben an sich verläuft wie bisher, außer das in gewissen Abständen Kinder den Monstern geopfert werden müssen. Bocca, der dies als ungerecht empfindet, hört eines Tages von den Melos-Kriegern, Krieger die weiterhin gegen die Monster kämpfen, und entschließt ebenfalls ein Melos-Krieger zu werden. Aber der Weg, den Bocca einschlägt, ist mühsam und er muss noch viel über die "Melody of Oblivion" lernen.

Original Uploader's Comments (Hideki):
Well........ Not much I can say about this one, except it was probably one of the most blah (and disturbing IMO) animes I have ever forced myself to watch. I will now sit back and wait for the rant about how I missed the point of the anime and how I have to be intelligent to understand it and other rants such as that, as I have heard them all, and frankly dont care. It was blah, but I am sharing because others out ther like it, and its not about what I like heh but about what everyone else likes. I coulda sworn it was uploaded to ADC b4 tho, but I searched and found naught. Volumes 2 and 3 are source dvd5, while the remaining volumes are BARELY dvd9. You can easily edit them tho to fit a dvd5 im certain... Anyway these were ripped from retail dvds by a friend of mine and uploaded to my server, so I thot I would see how they do here.
