I was dissapointed by this movie. I mean visuals and Score are amazing, but the story is what bothers me, I dont sympathize with any character what so ever, for me they all are kinda weak and at times even irritating, for example those "ghost children" or Tetsuo himself, in someways I despise these characters. The story it self dosen't hook me it goes all over the place and can't really take a focus on one specific idea or theme. I dont know... It just doesn't work for me.

I don't care what anyone says, my preferred way to watch this movie is the original 1988 English dub. The voice acting isn't great, but it's charming as hell and really brings the characters to life.

I rented 'Akira' from the video store back in the 90s as a small kid thinking I would watch just a cartoon. What a mistake, I was so tripped out and disgusted with the weirdness and just psycho stuff. I watched it again a few years ago to see what I feel and think as an adult and it has a lot of deep psychological and philosophical themes, it can go deep into the abstract but that's it makes interesting.

The motorcycle slide has been reference in so many anime and movie at this point, calling this movie influential would be undercutting it. I think this is also what a lot of people would reference for the 180 camera rule.

I actually threw up the first time I saw Akira. I'd seen gore before but somehow the animation style makes it more vivid. It was like visual indigestion to me because I had never seen something so rich.

It is my favourite movie that I have memories of seeing it on VHS and being awe stuck. It is the exception to subs over dubs. Particularly the original dub with Cam Clarke

It's so funny that Chris talks about his mom blocking his anime rentals as a kid. I can remember going to this sort of mom and pop video store as a kid in the sense that it wasn't a big chain and them having a "Japanamation" section. Unlike Chris I could get there on my bike and probably at around the age of 12 or 13 I started renting these movies. This store didn't let kids rent Rated R movies without a parent being present but for some reason, despite having a whole Japanamation section, they let kids rent these titles. My guess is that someone younger was buying these for the store and the owner jus t didn't care. I can even remember some Hentai titles being mixed in with stuff like Ghost in the Shell. I'm so surprised that parents never complained about this but I guess they never looked in that section anyway so they didn't know. All in all I credit this video store with introducing me to anime and I'm still a fan today. So thank you loose-moraled video store owner. You made a fan out of me. 😆

This is absolutely my favorite movie of all time, no competition. There's so much bts details that make it so much better. The movie was animated around the soundtrack which other movies do the other way. SPOILERS the sequence at the end with the Akira explosion mixed with the soundtrack filled with a terrifying organ piece playing makes it feel like an apocalyptic event, it is the most awe inspiring show of raw power in an anime. Every detail makes this movie absolutely perfect to me.

Used to LOVE this movie, visually stunning in every which way. First watch it when I was in Puerto Rico 🇵🇷 and it was SO cool. But, THEN, then years later they re-released the original manga and read it all...90 percent of what’s in the manga is NOT in the movie. As I re watched it, I couldn’t help but feel unfulfilled. It’s still a great visual landmark. But, the mangas better. Please, watch the film and form your own opinion.

The only complaint i have with the Anime is that the whole Manga doesnt fit into one Movie. Damn... the creator should remake the WHOLE story on that original level of detail and with modern tech as a series! I liked the Anime plottwist but the expanded story is really cool and leaves more room for the characters to grow (what Chris was critisizing)

The manga is far better than the movie, and this is coming from someone who loves the movie. The characters are far more developed in the manga.

I’m so happy you have gotten to a place to be able to do what you love and be who you are. Yours is the first channel I go to after I see any movie, to find a review because I love the way you appreciate films and movies and I respect your opinions. I hope for good things in your pursuits; I don’t think anything can stop you. I hope your family still embraces you and communicates with you but if they won’t, there are tons of people in your life, some you haven’t even met yet,that will love you like family. All the best to you.

I remember the first time I watcher Akira, it was the extended cut, and half way through, my sister came downstairs and watched it with me... then I put it again and watch it all over again. It was one of the most epic movie experiences I've had to date. I mean it was like 6 straight hours.

No lie I recently watched Akira sometime last year for my first time ever and about an hour and I was like oh we only got like an hour left in this movie I wasn't bored of it or anything but I'm like damn it's coming to an ending so soon just to find out that movie was 3 hours long but I enjoyed every minute of it

Chris, I always thought you already reviewed Akira lol Akira was a manga first which had more story and characters fleshed out in the books but had to be squeezed into a movie. Even still, it was epic on its own. The bike, the jacket, the story, the message. Anime

I will say this about Akira, the problem with a lot of movies and movie reviewers is that the "audience", movie goers and the like, have been accustomed to perceive the story as being subservient to the the character/characters. In reality the characters should be subservient to the story. Akira is a perfect example of characters being subservient to the story. Also, Akira only represents a third of the story written in the manga. Before I get the "the movie should stand on its own" argument, let me say that the movie story does stand on its own, but if you read the manga, you will understand that character development eventually shifts towards a third character that will play a mayor roll in the outcome of the story. That being said, my point is, characterization sometimes detracts from world building and constructing a deep mythology... my humble opinion.

Sadly, I suspect I may never entirely comprehend the full staggering scope of Otomo Katsuhiro's masterpiece, even after so many revisits of the OAV* as well as the six volumes of the manga, which is so many orders of magnitude more dense than the anime that even light itself cannot escape and is inevitably consumed by the azimuth of artistry that is Akira. *First seen at age 11 in 1995, as the third round in the all day triple header which saw Vampire Hunter D & Ninja Scroll played on the VERY first day I experienced the artistic medium which profoundly altered the course of my future and, after about three years, a Wizard magazine article would inform me was referred to by the Japanese word for animation, anime, resulting in the immediate and eternal banishment of that most cringe inducing of labels... ugh... japanimation.
