I just watched Megazone 23 part 2 and I swear I saw the squiddies from Matrix
No, it just ripped off GITS.

I don't know about ripped off but I know that the Wachowski brothers claimed Megazone 23 as an influence at least.

The Matrix ripped off everything, basically. Good movie (singular, not plural) though.
Yeah, the Matrix did a good job of finding some excellent things from Anime and translating them into live-action... ripoff, homage, whatever you want to call it, the Wachowski brothers sure as hell didn't create that movie from scratch.
But anywho, I got Megazone 23 on a whim last year, and I have to admit that I was very pleasantly surprised by it... the changes in animation style between the Parts was a bit odd, and the third Part having a whole different set of characters was weird... but overall a very enjoyable series.
