Heyhey /a/, did you enjoy Akira by Katsuhiro Otomo?
What are your opinions on the books/film/other works?
The manga was recommended to me several years ago and I couldn't take my eyes off. I was fascinated by the unique dystopian setting, great drawing style, the rebelling characters and their relationships. Oh my and the motorcycles!
The movie was a masterpiece too, greatly detailed animation. Maybe I should rewatch it in the next time. They announced an anime series in 2019, so let's hope for the best.

I love the movie. It's great and has aged like fine wine. I love how well animated it is. Another thing I love is how little of the story is explained, you're left to figure most of it out by yourself which adds a lot of integrity to the work. The music is great as well.
Fun fact: The movie consists of 2,212 shots and 160,000 single pictures, 2-3 times more than usual, using 327 different colors (another record in animation film), 50 of which were exclusively created for the film.


i like how open the story is with morality, the main character isn't exactly the best person in the world and the antagonist isn't exactly evil.


The movie is a tad bit overrated but, everyone should watch it.
