The Delve: Dallos

Posted on 02 July 2012 by VinnieAve

This week I decided to take a look at a piece of anime that I hadn’t heard of until recently when, while browsing Wikipedia, I discovered this was the very first OAV produced. Also Mike Toole mentioned this piece yesterday in his column over at Anime News Network. I already mentioned why this work piqued my interest in the first place and the other is the director of this work is none other than Mamoru Oshii. When I found this out I had to go to Amazon on find a copy of this OAV, I was able to find a VHS tape. Dallos was originally released in 1983 as 4 episodes. There is also compilation movie that was made in 1985, that is what is being discussed here today.

The action of Dallos takes place on the moon which has been colonized for a generation now and increasingly oppressed by the Earth elites (this sounds kind of like UC Gundam) who want the valuable minerals that can be found there. Also on the moon is the ancient Fortress and God who is worshipped by the Lunarians. Meanwhile, there is Paptimus Scirroco looking guy is trying to suppress the resistance to the earthers. His main method of attack is to use dogs or robot dogs. There are a few nice mecha battle scenes which are set to such out of place 80s pop music it seems ridiculous.
