In a far-off galaxy, there exists a world much the same as Earth. Save for blue skin, the people are near identical - especially with their taste for rockin' dance music. When a strange alien abduction craft lands on the planet to steal their most popular band, however, all hope seems lost. With their story told entirely via Daft Punk's album Discovery, join The Crescendolls in a journey to rediscover both themselves and their music in a galaxy millions of light years away from home.
Four touching and intriguing stories are set to a backdrop of different songs: a futuristic cop patrols the streets to fight against crime; a girl experiences an out-of-this-world vision of the world after ingesting a variety of pills; a badass battling chick fights her way to happiness and manages to stoke the flame of love; and two lovers meet and exchange a beautiful rose.
Anime! And music! In one humungous music video!
Interstella and Amazing Nuts! Both have the feel of something new and revolutionary to the anime world, using both inspiration from the music and stunning visuals to tell a tale. The lack of dialogue is more than made up for by some awesome music. Fans of one (and Daft Punk) will definitely love the other!
Music and anime fans rejoice! These two music videos come with an anime story. Nuts! is a collection of four small music videos and Interstella is a 1h long music video presenting an entire Daft Punk album, both while telling short, dialogue-less stories to accompany the music well. If you liked the combination of a shallow, yet fun story and great music in one of these works, check out the other as well!
In futuristic Japan, a young boy is cleaning windows when the building he is working on begins to move. To his amazement, the skyscraper is actually a rocket that is blasting off on a mission to another planet. Before he knows it, the innocent lad finds himself swept up in a space adventure filled with intergalactic battles and clones of himself and the rest of the crew.
Both Interstella 5555 and Queen: Bohemian Rhapsody combine animation with music. Both have the same artsyle. Also, the both tell a story (though Interstella does this a bit better, in my opinion). While they contain different types of music and Interstella is alot longer, if you like one you will probably like the other.
Leiji Matsumoto lends his breathtaking space opera vision to very different but brilliant music classics.
In the year 2977, humanity has long passed its peak; machines are able to perform any task a human can, and people have succumbed to apathy. However, there remains one who refuses to accept such an existence: Captan Harlock, a pirate who sails the sea of stars aboard his ship, the Arcadia. He is feared and loathed by most inhabitants of Earth, and yet he is their only hope against the Mazones, a strange alien race of beautiful women that threatens humanity. Thus begins a lonely battle in which Harlock and the crew of Arcadia struggle to stay true to their ideals, while slowly unravelling the sad tale of the Mazones.
Harlock and Interstellar tell sci fi stories about aliens and the outer space that are simple yet effective. Their worlds slowly draw you in, while the beautifully drawn characters unfold before you. Connected in themes and in style, these shows go perfectly with each other.
A four-leaf clover is said to be a being that cannot belong to anyone; and if she learns to love someone, the world is in the palm of her love's hands. One such clover longs to leave her lonely captivity; and she has met a man, Kazuhiko, who she hopes can finally take her from this place. What lies in store for the clover and her love?
Both Clover and Interstellar 5555 relate a story with just the intense image flow on an intertaining background music; the plots also seem a bit similar, from the scenes at least, showing the hero as a girl being kidnapped, on an impossible love background.
Follow interstellar bounty hunters Spike Spiegel and Jet Black as they scour the galaxy for criminals with prices on their heads. Hoping to escape their past, they live on the spaceship Bebop, but it's a dangerous business and old enemies don't forget easily. Allies come from unlikely sources, however, as they find comrades in the beautiful swindler Faye Valentine, the genius child hacker Ed and the genetically engineered 'data dog' Ein. Will they be able to help each other though their respective struggles, or is their fate really inevitable?
When one talks about the synergy between anime and music, they are usually talking about Cowboy Bebop. Yoko Kanno with the brilliant assistance of many artists including Steve Conte, put together a beautiful score of blues and jazz tunes to harmonize with the action of the show and greatly heighten whatever atmosphere the show is existing in at any given moment. If what you enjoyed about Interstella 5555 was the way the music and the story moved together, then you may find you'd enjoy the way Shinichirow Watanabe and Yoko Kanno come together in the same way that Leiji Matsumoto and Daft Punk did.
