- Fantastic Edition of an Anime Classic- December 12, 2016
I grew up with the old Streamline Pictures VHS of this movie, and it was great to see that old dub included with the more recent dub of the film when it got released on DVD in the 2000s. Tons of features and a great HD transfer of this perennial classic. As for the film itself, what can I say that hasn't been said already. This movie defined anime for a generation, and its influence is still felt today. It isn't perfect, but its strengths far out weigh its flaws. If you haven't seen it then you are missing out. If your on the fence, i would say get this now as if it ever goes out of print you might end up paying a king's ransom later.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Classic Anime!!- March 3, 2020
Akira is ALWAYS a good view. Saw it back n the 80s in Japanese and loved it. Saw it in the early 90s with the first English dub. Loved it. Saw it in the late 90s with the second English dub. Loved it. The art style is, by today's standards, very analogue. Hand draw cells. No CG. Large Bright colors throughout. Lots of violence. Some excellent voice acting and amazing scripting for its day. While today, thought provoking scripting is kinda the norm for anime, back then, most of it was He-Man styled fluff. THIS IS NOT HE-MAN STYLE FLUFF. It is very deep. It is thought provoking. It is simply amazing!Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Come on, this is AKIRA!- July 19, 2014
This blu-ray of AKIRA was beyond my expectations; the picture quality was outstanding, as was the quality of the sound. The massive amount of work that went into every frame of this masterpiece is mind-boggling. This is Anime perfection. It's not exactly a happy, feel-good movie but it's an adventure that inspired countless other stories. If you haven't seen this, GET IT NOW. If you have seen it but not on blu-ray, GET IT NOW. Yes, I bought it on VHS and then again on the collector's edition DVD and it was worth every penny to purchase even again on this new high definition release.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
