Default Akira




Akira (1988)


Another classic from the old days. This movie set the bar for anime and it still looks awesome today and still rivals many current anime shows in existence even with CG technology backing their quality.

The Plot: This movie follows a cyberpunk era shortly after World War 3 ravaged Tokyo and was rebuilt into Neo-Tokyo. The city has its problems with protesters constantly each day, with kids attacking and how the city budget should be spent.
A group secretly escorts a mysterious child away from the clutches of the government. Kaneda's friend Tetsuo runs into the child and begans to realize that something has awakened within him from his contact with the mysterious child. What has awakened within Tetsuo to have the Japanese government snatch him away and run tests on him?

I loved this movie when I saw it long ago, and somewhat wish I could get the BD release for free as well since the quality of the show itself is just superb for its time.
Also one may note, that the manga series for this movie, is being adapted into a live action version which looks to be ready in 2009. I'm excited and this has brought me to recall this great classic.

The plot sounds odd but it can be so much more from the talk when Kei was possessed and started that long discussion to explain everything about energy. I really feel they could have made another movie or two with it, but the costs probably stopped them, or just because of the massive long-ass script that the first movie took up.

The Super Mario Bros live action was awesome and funny (everybody being afreid of the tiny bombbomb, lol). Now I'll say the Salor Moon live action was bad (still having nightmares after having watched a 5 min. clip of them transforming)

On-Topic:
I do want to watch it and currently looking for a place to rent it to copy it.
