Interstella 5555 & Galaxy Express 999 (銀河鉄道999)
Sakti: “As killtherichguy rightfully pointed out this morning, it’s obvious the similarity between Daft Punk’s Interstella 5555 and the classic 70’s anime Galaxy Express 999. Because, in fact, creator of GE999 Leiji Matsumoto supervised the creation of Interstella 5555.
Also, in Galaxy Express 999 there’s a train named 555, or the Orion Great Loop Line, a limited express train that covers the entire GE line. You can find more about the trains here.
Well played Daft Punk, you chose one of the best manga artists ever for making your animation with the Discovery album.”
