This music video is the visual realization of "Discovery", an album by Daft Punk. It tells the story of a band of four extraterrestrial musicians who are kidnapped and brought back to Earth by an evil manager. Their only hopes lie with a space pilot from their home planet who, after receiving a distress call broadcasted during the abduction, seeks out to rescue them.

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

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

Unlike most anime, there is no dialogue in this movie. The story is told by Daft Punk's album Discovery. I thought the film was great and had an awesome plot (though I think if there had been speaking parts it would've been AMAZING!!!) Having been a big fan of the parisian robot duo I had much respect for the work and tried to correlate the songs to the story. I think that if you have previous experience with their work, the movie is a slightly more enjoyable (well, more easy to understand if you're familiar with their odd film style), but the love read more

Interstella5555 is the collaboration work of a band with an anime legend: It all begins in the 90s, when music videos were original (no offense to the current works); Daft Punk, a techno group, made a music video for their song "One More Time," the video animation was done by an anime artist known as Leiji Matsumoto. The video featured a band of four extraterrestrial characters, looking human with blue skin. The video had them playing the song as the whole alien world was dancing to their beautiful music. While this is going on, some mysterious villain shows up and spies on them, soon after read more
