Right.

Back to topic.

Akira is one of the best anime ever made, but is surpassed by "Ghost in the Shell", and "Wings of Honeamise" in both art and story...

My opinon, anyway...

Re: Good or Bad?

While movies may surpass it in plot and art, you have to remember that it is a fairl old movie, and that it was loosely based on a series of mangas, that, in my opinion, greatly incresed the storyline and made it easier to understand (not much easier, mind you, but a little).

If you want the DVD, but not the special edition, check Wal-Mart. They have it for $15. When I saw it there, it was in with the non-animated movies. Most of the anime at walmart is usually thrown in with the kiddie movies, which is really stupid. They have movies like Vampire Hunter D, which is rated R or 16 and Up or something, next to Disney movies.

I couldn't believe it when I saw Akira at Wal-Mart. There's just something weird about it. lol.

EDIT - Forgot to add, check your local Suncoast and/or Best Buy. Both places have an anime section. Borders Books and Music and other places also have anime, but you'll find the best prices at Best Buy if you have one.

Exclamation Everyone is always looking for Akira

When i first entered this page i was asking where i could find akira too. finally i got off my fat ass and went to walmart and found the damn movie. I still watch the movie to this day. It never gets old. When i first saw the movie i didnt like it because the stroy line was a little to hard to get into. But now i do understand the storyline and the movie just kicks ass more and more. Just like roses addition MORE AND MORE!!!!!!!!

Re: Good or Bad?

Very very good. Possibly the best cartoon movie I've ever seen. I didn't quite nkow what to expect when I first saw it, but I was n't expecting it to be just like a 'real' film only drawn. I'm used to cartoons being a bit more ... well ... cartoon-y.

If there's anyone who's not seen it - buy it, rent it, steal it, mug someone for the money to buy or rent it! Now! Please?

Wierd, I watched it on the 22nd...

I was left with two lasting impressions:

1) Thats one of the coolest things I've ever seen.

2) What the ****?

I understood it right from the start...don't get the ending though. But it's an amazing ending anyway.
