If you're looking for anime similar to Interstella 5555 - The 5tory of the 5ecret 5tar 5ystem, you might like these titles.
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.
Both are musical videos by the same producer, one with Daft Punk music, and the other with Queen.The main themes are spaceships, music and action.
Both of these music video style anime are wonderful space dramas. With a combination of great music and science fiction storylines, these two are very similar in style.
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!
Both are long music videos which try to tell a story through a dialogueless show. If this concept appeals to you and you liked one of them then you'll definitely enjoy the other.
Tetsuro was orphaned at a young age when his mother was killed by Count Mecha. He dreams of one day earning, or stealing enough money to board the Galaxy Express 999 - the intergalactic train that would take him to the robot planet, where he could cast away his humanity in his quest for vengeance against Count Mecha. Tetsuro soon finds a shortcut towards his desires when he meets the enchanting Maetel while running from the police. Tetsuro finds himself drawn towards this woman that eerily resembles his mother, especially when she offers to take him on the Galaxy Express 999 with her. So begins Tetsuro's intergalactic journey to fulfill his wishes, whatever those wishes may be in the end.
Both Galaxy Express 999 and Interstellar 5555 were made by Leigi Matsumoto. Beyond that, they are both whimsical, lighthearted fantasies disguised as science fiction stories. Both are simple and easy to understand, while conveying a strong message at the same time.
No longer held back within the confines of Earth, space exploration is now commonplace throughout the universe. These new colonies, which make up the "New Frontier", are now home to the masses, but the evil mastermind Nemesis and his Outriders spread destruction throughout these worlds. In order to protect the citizens, an organization called Calvary Command was created to bring justice to these outlaws. Saber Rider and the elite agents known as Star Sheriffs now stand between the renegades of the universe and total chaos. Power Stride... AND READY TO RIDE!
These two anime have a really matching animation style, and if you look deep enough at the plot, you might find similarities. They take place a bit in space, in other universes, and in Earth; both parties are threatened by an unknown evil and are made up of three boys (who are smart, silly and beautiful) and a girl; and both girls have a secret fan, who tries to win her heart and save her at all costs. Look closely and I think you'll understand why they're so similar. I think you'll enjoy both of them if you don't hate mecha anime, as "Saber Rider" has some of that in it.
The responsible Sophie led a relatively normal life, safe within the walls of the hat shop in which she works; for outside, it is rumored, the evil wizard Howl roams the land in his mobile black castle. After a chance and mystical encounter, poor Sophie finds herself transformed by a witch's spell which makes her appear to be an old woman, and thus embarks on an adventure to find Howl’s castle and put an end to her curse. A mystical world of talking flames, sentient scarecrows, and magic aplenty awaits those who seek the legendary Howl...
A touch of childhood innocence, a dash of cheesy storyline, then add in some excellent animation. Some would say these movies have very little in common, but I say those are the words of someone looking at them through the eyes of an adult. You have to embrace that little child inside of you to enjoy either one, and if you do that... you will enjoy the 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.
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. With only a chainsaw, one man will destroy families and lives for his own selfish gain, and the citizens of the forest will never be the same. 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.
