Katsuhiro Otomo's comic serial premiered in December, 1982. For many, the 1988 movie based on the comic is THE one that got them hooked on anime. Katsuhiro Otomo started Akira the manga series circa 1982. The series went on for several years until Otomo decided to make a film out of it. He wrote the screenplay and directed the film which took 3 years in the making. The budget of 1,000 million yen back in 1988 was unprecedentedly high, particularly for an anime project. The result is a lush, creative, decadent near-futuristic sci-fi epic like no other. This 5.1ch DTS, low-priced release of the movie on DVD marks the 20th anniversary of the original comic's premiere. The bonus (second) disc of this limited-release edition includes about 2,500 production stills, about 100 stills taken from catalog(s), about 350 stills from the unused storyboard and early production material, teaser(s), trailer(s), & more.

      Greatest anime in History 5

      What could be said about this Anime. Only that it would be mind blowing if there would be an anime serie. It is a little diffrent from the Manga. But man this anime has everything. Drama, Action, little bit Comedy, somekind of sex appeal, best SciFi (not this overhyped space crap SciFi) by far the sound in this DVD Version is the best. the Videoquality is a little bit better in die US-Pioneer Version. also the music is just amazing. i wish there would be an dvd audio oder a blu-ray OST version. just buy this one! it is worth!!

      Really Good 5

      These DVD is special because of its design, the bonus disc is nothing one should not lose, but the sound is something to admire. Specially recommended for true fans of the movie or collectors.
