Cant get that animated music video out of my mind!

I am looking for the title/artist/director of a 90s animated music video that takes place in space.

The video features a cigar smoking hero and a gorgeous heroine. I believe a 'space' motorcycle or car of some sort was involved and that there was a fighting of the bad guys mixed in with a love story. I havent seen the video in ages and cant seem to remmember much more.

The artists name would be great, a link to the video would be awesome!

Probably not, but maybe one of the Daft Punk videos from Discovery (2001)? They did a series of very cool space anime vids which make up the movie Interstella 5555: The 5tory of the 5ecret 5tar 5ystem (imdb).

Here is the link to the official site of the author of the original manga, Terasawa Buichi.

Yeah, that definitely sounds like the video for Matthew Sweet's "Girlfriend" (the cd, IIRC, has recently been rereleased for its anniversary).

I loved that video when it came out and had no idea it was based on actual manga--thanks for the links, misozaki!

WooHoo! Thank you, very very much. I didn't even realize that the animated footage was taken from an anime!
