  1. some original & interesting trivia, i hope.
    incidentally, "Tokyo Melody ..."
    contains a blue tinted sequence of a block of flats
    ( mark 13'30" - 14'09" )
    - inside with a warnining sign 'no safety net above',
    a pan of the complex
    & a shot of a playing grounds w/ children -
    that depicts the very place that
    comic's "Domu - a child's dream" (1981, by OTOMO katsuhiro)
    action of takes place.
