I know a lot of times numbers are made into verbal puns in Japanese. For example, in the anime series Soul Easter, Death's phone number is 42 42 564, which can translate into shini-shini-koroshi (die, die, kill).
The number 189277 is the phone number for an anti-hero who has lost his memory in a series called Ergo Proxy. Is there a "hidden meaning" in the number? The series is packed with symbolism and I'm sure this number has a meaning too. Any ideas?
