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.
Set to Tchaikovsky's Fourth Symphony, Legend of the Forest is a voiceless tale of human encroachment into the forests and its furry and feathered inhabitants.

Join the varied cast of birds, trees, squirrels, gnomes and fairy folk as they struggle to survive in their dying homeland...
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.
Naota Nanbada is a boring young boy who leads a boring life in a boring town. His older brother has left for America, and the closest he comes to any excitement is when his deadbeat dad has too much sake. But things change one day when a bizarre girl zooms up to him on a scooter and smacks him in the face with her guitar. What's more, once Naoto returns home he discovers that this strange woman has arrived ahead of him and moved in! Not only does she constantly engage in perverted activities with Naota's father and flirt with the young man himself, but she also claims to be an alien who is searching for the ‘Pirate King.' Now, Naota must learn to live with this new intruder, deal with an odd government agent who sports exceptionally large eyebrows and the mysterious Medical Mechanica, and come to terms with the fact that there are a variety of robots and weapons emerging out of his head - amongst other things. Perhaps boring wasn't so bad after all...
On one level, Interstella and FLCL are basically extended music videos with a sci-fi theme. There's admittedly a lot more to FLCL than just its music video status - while Interstella has nothing else to it. Also, I find FLCL absolutely amazing while Interstella is merely okay. Still, if you like the music these should prove pretty satisfactory viewing experiences.
