  • [ – ] slyofwar reply Wait hold on a second I'm still confused why was Tetsuo wearing that silly little red cape?
    • [ – ] theoldsparrow parent reply It's in the contract for becoming superhuman.
      • [ – ] slyofwar parent reply Guess that makes Spiderman a rebel lol
        • [ – ] theoldsparrow parent reply I can't remember which Spiderman continuity it was but even Spiderman had that cape like webbing between his upper arms and torso. Personally I blame Anicent Roman legionnaire officers for being so bad ass that they were emulated as the peak of fashion for bad asses.
          • slyofwar parent reply Well shoot guess every hero worth there salt does or should wear a cape even though there quite the hazard
  • GaryTurbo reply When I first saw it, it was confusing as hell
  • Fighting_Zenith reply My thoughts on Akira succinctly compiled: I. The animation still holds up well. It's solidly drawn, with lots of weight, secondary motion, overlapping action, etc. Props must be given to Otomo and his animators. 2. This film had too many English dubs. I have only saw the Streamline dub, which while good for the time, hasn't aged well. 3. The original manga has way too much story for a feature film to handle, even though this film only covered the first third. My rating: 3.5/5
  • DragonSkunk reply This would be way less distracting without the stuffed toy not meant to be a puppet use as a puppet to explain that Akira is not for children.
  • theoldsparrow reply I love this movie. It is good every rewatch and you notice more and more things due to the complexity of the setting. Like what was said in this video it really is simple at the core but complicated enough to make it interesting. You can easily watch this for simple good action fun as well as thought provoking material so there are layers to the enjoyment. Great review.
  • lewren reply A god suffering from inferiority complex? So, basically Tetsuo becomes Allah?
