There is a recent thread discussing appearances the ocarina has made in video games, other than LoZ. I'm wondering; are there any anime or manga series out there where the ocarina has been featured, even briefly?

I think it'd be pretty cool if they did that!!

In Naruto, not Shippuden, there is one character who plays an ocarina. I'm pretty sure it's in like the second to last arc before Naruto goes to train with Jiraya.
I would narrow it down more but with 1500+ Naruto, Shippuden, One Piece, and Bleach episodes in the last six months its a bit fuzzy XD

Dragon Ball Z Movie 13: Tapion plays ocarina to seal the monster in his body.
My Neighbor Totoro: They played ocarina briefly.

Is the PokeFlute an ocarina? I dunno, it's been ages since I watched that cartoon.

EDIT: Hahaha! Never mind, I just saw a picture of it and it's clearly not. :blush:

There's this super old school anime called Captain Harlock, sort of a "Bad Mofo Space Pirate" anime, where one of the characters is a little girl named Mayu with an ocarina that she takes with her everywhere she goes.

This is her theme song, and you can see small clips of her actually playing it. Looks like a bass sized oc, considering the size of the holes to the size of the body, even though it sounds like a soprano, lol.

Oh geeze, and of course, our very own OcarinaDiva has ALREADY done a cover of it, wouldn't you know?? :rofl:

Also, there's another game that starred the ocarina a long time ago, almost at the same time Zelda 64 came out. It was an old Japanese RPG game on the Playstation 1 called Lunar: Silver Star Story, a reboot to the original Lunar from Sega CD. The main character was the oc musician, and in order to beat the final boss,

There was an episode of Bleach where an ocarina was behind the counter in a shop.

Also, Melody in Pokemon 2000 plays Lugia's Song.

And, Totoro plays ocarina in the trees with the kids during the music montage.

Ariana from Professor Layton and the Last Specter (DS) played an ocarina to calm her whale/seal, Loosha.
I know an ocarina was used in the movie Rango, though it never actually appeared in the film.

Interesting!! These are fantastic! :D

This made me all oodles of happy. Thank you for the answers, everyone. I must investigate!

@ Suki: Tee hee, I knew what you meant! I figured you were referencing Melody from Pokemon 2000 :)

I haven't seen anything that all of you haven't seen so sadly I can't bring much to this topic....... except I with they'd bring back the Ocarina in the Next Zelda and make that game more like Twilight Princess than Skyward Sword.

Bleach. I'm not sure of the exact episode number though. They all sort of blend together.

I think it's between the sword beast arc and the final battle in Karakura Town when Rangiku is on one of her shopping sprees.

In Fairy Tail, there's a character called Opiuchus who plays ocarina as weapon, controlling what she sees. Here's the link for the fandom wiki (minor spoiler alert):

Unfortunately I didn't find the exact episode again, it's in the last filler arc before the Tartaros arc starts (episode number around 212-217 or something like that).
