It tells the story of a band of four extraterrestrial musicians who are kidnapped and brought back to Earth by an evil manager.

So here we are with another anime review! This time around, it seems that I'm reviewing not so much a series, but a single one shot movie.

This movie in question is called Interstellar 5555(which I found out of luck), and I have to say that it was something very unexpected.

Story: While this movie is really a visual representation of the Daft Punk album Discovery, it actually had a pretty good story. The basis of the story involves four extraterrestrial musicians who get kidnapped from their home world and brought to Earth. They end up having to be rescued by a read more

The story is a fairly normal thing. Several musicians get kidnapped and brain washed by an evil doer.
The most interesting thing about this story is the fact that said musicians are aliens.
Which makes things very interesting.
The story moves along quickly but doesn't skim things either.
And if you like AMVs you'll find this to be very much the best one you'll ever see as things make sense!
An 8 on story from me.

While the movie aired in 2003, the art looks very much like something from the late 80s.
That is not to say it isn't well animated. It's very smooth, but looks like cleaned up 80s read more

Also by iconic anime and manga creator, Leiji Matsumoto. Rich characters and stories with a signature look and feel. Frequent "cross pollination" of characters between series.
bother robot carnival and interstella are music oriented. Even though robot carnival has some segments with dialog, interstella does not. they both have an 80's feel to them and are both very enjoyable.
