18 Anime-Inspired Music Videos For Music-Loving Otaku

It would be blasphemous to kick off this list with anything other than one of the most instantly recognizable anime-inspired music videos ever: Daft Punk’s “One More Time,” the French electronic duo’s 2000 dancefloor opus. The psychedelic clip, which shows a blue-skinned alien pop group performing on their home planet, was crafted under the visual supervision of Leiji Matsumoto, one of anime and manga’s most prolific figures. It’s no wonder, then, that “One More Time” and the 2003 animated sci-fi film it was later included on (Interstella 5555) bears a striking resemblance to Matsumoto’s iconic ‘70s series, Galaxy Express 999.
