I wasn't so impressed by the blood and gore, so much as the attempt to cram hundreds of pages of manga into a movie-length feature. While not entirely successful in telling a coherent story, Akira does succeed as a memorable and worthwhile experience in skilled animation, albeit an often frustrating and confusing one. Don't get me wrong - this is a good movie. But it's not the best ever.

The best anime ever. The animation is brilliant, and the plot is great. I admit the plot is complicated, but the second time you watch it, it comes in to place. The sequence of Neo-Tokyo exploding at the end is great for a movie over a decade old. Anyone who hasn't seen this movie must see it (unless you are sensitive to violence, although the violence adds to the great animation.)

Some people think that this anime was too disgusting to bear(Tetsuo's guts falling out for about a half a second), but no way! NOOOOOO WAY!!! Not for me! I kept going to Best Buy and seeing the movie there, just WONDERING what it was like.. So I bought it, watched it, and LOVED IT TO DEATH! Kaneda is AWESOME and Tetsuo is AWESOME(My fave character. I LOVE HIS EVIL LAUGH!)!! But the little blue dudes kinda creeped me out.. They were creepy and cute at the same time. Creepily cute. Ha. I scare myself. I think my favorite part of the movie was the animation. The movements were so realistic! So natural! And the dubbing wasn't too bad either! I got the soundtrack too. Not too shabby for a 10 track disc I got for 35 bucks!

The movie was cool, but that was one of the most garbled translations i have ever seen in a foriegn movie. Sometimes the titles would only stay up for 1/4 of a second, the grammer was horrible and a LOT of sentances ended with a prepression and ........ I was expecting to see "how are you gentelmen, all your base are belong to us." Visually it rocked the house, even being a 14 year old movie. Sound also top notch. If you have 2 hours to kill, rent it, but remember that all this is good except.......

This classic set the quality standard for anime in the 1990's. It is beatiful, violent, disturbing, and yes, it's confusing. You will need to pay close attention to have a chance of understand the ending. A must see for any sci-fi/horror fan.
Who or what is Akira? The manga and anime take (slightly) different paths in telling the story, and I would recommend that anyone who enjoys the movie, go get the manga. It is being re-released in a collection of 6 books in the original black and white. The anime has just been released in DVD format, and I would recommend to all Akira fans to get the special edition with all the extras! (Special note: the DVD has been re-translated and re-dubbed into english.)
Not rated, but should be rated R for extreme violence, language, and (very brief) nudity.

Ummm... well my brother kind of forced me to watch it, but it was pretty good. There was plenty of action to keep me interested and the plot was really inventive. Although the animation wasn't anything special, the big blob thing was absolutly amazing! Definately a CLASSIC!!

Akira, Akira, Akira. I caught a lil bit of it on Sci-Fi a few years back. I've been an Anime Junkie ever since. I own somewhere in excess of 300 something titles, including bootlegs and what not..all thanks to THIS movie. Excellent storyline, excellent acting, excellent music, excellent art, and I definetly cannot wait for the remake coming out on July 27th if im not mistaken. If you havent seen it, hop to, if you have, im pretty sure you agree with me here. Akira is not only a classic, but a milestone in anime. "Sugoi"

Certainly one of the best films, not just animes, around. I recently saw the digital re-release of the film and I must say that it's just as powerful as it was the first time I saw it almost eleven years ago. This was the film that introduced me to the world of anime. The sheer magnitude of the work is awe-inspiring.
Yes, the film has its flaws; however, taking the film in the greater contex of it's creation one can truly say that it is a technical masterpiece.
There are those who look to it for flaws in the detail whether that concerns the graphic depictions or the plot but those details are its greatest strength. Additionally, when first went to see the movie those many moons ago I knew nothing of the film, after I came out of the theatre I was stunned...stunned to see animation approach a level of complexity that I had not seen before. And yes there have been animated films to come afterwards with surpassed the quality found in this film, however, none has the ....fiestyness or heart of this film. One final note, the soundtrack is also by far the best musical ochestration I have heard.
If one has the opportunity to purchase it, do so. It adds a certain depthness to the film which is a one point jubilant to hauntingly eerie. So I will say the Akira is my favorite film of all time.

this is a very good and deeep anime. This is the type of anime that you need to watch a cuple of time to trully appreciate it actual quality. The music when need, just to add great paranormal feeling to it. Also when Tetsou's intestens fall onto the ground(so he though),but the whole time it was total silence, it quiets all other thoughts at that paticular moment. When I watch this film I feel as though I am engulfed in greatness. This is a movie to own and to just pull out when company comes by.

Akira has to be the TIGHTEST anime movie ever. It was awesome. I first saw it in Japan in the Japanese language, and couldn't understand it . . . but it was still tight cuz the fighting scenes are AWESOME. Then when I got home to the states, I rented the dubbed version, and it was even better. The movie was hard to understand, but when watching it and actually paying attention, you really can understand it. Maybe some people should try listening and using their brains if they don't understand it!

My wife (who's from Japan) and I sat
down to watch this in the original
format. Neither of us could understand
anything about this movei. Because of
its phenomenal reputation, we rented it
in English just to see if dubbing it
would bring sense to it. Didn't. This is
the WORST anime film I have ever seen!
It's nonsensical! People seem to want
to "love" it on reputation alone!

11 years after it was released and still one of the BEST movies available in the anime world. With so many factors, the director/writer Otomo shows his power in every scene and action, the colors, details, complexity and visual effects are all outstanding even with these days technology. It was also the key taht opened the door to anime in the international market.

This was the first anime i had ever seen. After seeing it all i could think about was anime. It was a great show! The colors used, the art, the personalities of the characters, the plot, all wonderful! I did get kinda grossed out though when tetsuo got all fat n' crap. But it was worth it. Wonderul anime if i had to rate it on a scale from one to ten definently a ten.

Konohiro Otomo 's representative manga work as a movie, I think that that painting moving swiftly like the ultimate in cell technology at that time was better than Spriggan' s time.
The motorcycle on which Kaneda was riding was really cool and I thought that the car chase scene in the early stage was also impressive.
However, it seems that the way the talk turned up overall did not suit me, or it was slightly subtle. Certainly that view of the world is a tremendous near future, I was very interested, but I did not quite understand how the deployment of that last ah did not quite understand, in the last Tetsurou and the rest of the children, and where is AKIRA Perhaps it has gone to a different world, probably, but it has become a last that does not fall down to understand what you say.
Tetsuo also killed a fair number of people and friends in the process, so I wonder if there was a little more judgment.
Also, the runaway scene of Tetsuo in the last neighborhood was amazing. Until then, Iron Men also did something like human graduation to destroy with the energy that saturates the laser, but if you say that grotesque, the body is damaged and its energy can not be held down and it seems like such amoeba (It looked like Hedora.) The scenes that took out everything and swallowed everything was a masterpiece.
Overall, as a mystery subcalic atmosphere was unbearable, it was regrettable that the content did not develop much more than I expected a bit.
But I enjoyed it overall, so the evaluation is "good".

[good point]
Fascinating image with overwhelming force

[Bad point]
It is not suitable for those who want to enjoy animation casually because their contents are small, so viewers who only see the current animation which has become strictly regulated are likely to become traumatic if they do not have the corresponding grounding tolerance Careful.
[Comprehensive evaluation]
I knew the name of AKIRA long ago but I have recently seen what I thought. (Including spoiler from 〓〓〓〓〓〓It was noted)

First of all, it is a picture that is said to be amazing in this work ... honestly, it was amazing. The power that can only be displayed in a cell picture has naturally moved so nullly as I thought in 1988!
Is it being directed or expressive? Unfortunately for this I have never felt fresh from what I have already seen through many animations. (〓〓〓You would like to say that people watching in rear tie are natural)
But in this way many animations that are presently present are used extensively such as circle distortion when destroying by the ability etc. For example, it is transmitted about how much impact this viewer gave to the viewer when this animation was released I will come.

Next is the content, is this 2 choosing whether it is addictive to a point or not? I do not think that I am bad for myself who likes philosophical analysis, but the content is obsolete in some people, what in the end do you want to say?

When I was watching Tetsuo somehow I suffered himself when I was young and when I was young I also had a time when I was dreaming of being unrealistic, "I can look back at the surroundings if there is special power." But I would not want absolutely wanting to see this work at that time, and I think that it is important to do what I can do now than it is.

To tell the story of this work now
AKIRA (ESP) = nuclear power
Tokyo destroyed 31 years ago = nuclear accident Although it is a simple idea, it is really terrible if we think like this.
We human beings attempted to control energy of unstable "nuclear energy" and practiced and used it, but eventually they fall into a state of uncontrollable "nuclear accident". However, the human race has deceived the fact and continues to study and utilize "nuclear power" which is still impossible to completely control. "〓〓〓quot; When you replace it, it agrees with that of the story.
But in the last line there was a line that made us feel like "someday" that we could control in the future.
Is it the day when humanity can fully control nuclear power?

... I thought it was a work that made me think in various ways with such a feeling. I will read the original if I have the opportunity next time.

Since it is a work of 88 years, it seems that it is a world view when you look at it now, there are a lot of parts that feel the era as being the hair style of the characters. I feel the era that the hero is killing a motorcycle of the evening night with a burglar troupe somewhat.
The story did not get in there so far, and the feeling of this neighborhood is still the difference of generations.
Just because I spent a billion dollars on production cost, although the picture is an analog it moves tremendously null null. It seems that cell strokes are also amazing.
Besides, the pattern of the mouth of the character is usually 3 patterns and it makes 5 patterns, and it is whether it is because of the presco without going on dubbing, or how the voice actor talking is also generally like an animated work I heard it as a natural conversation without feeling playing characters. I feel that I understand a little about the meaning that this work is currently being evaluated even in such a face now. Personally, music was really good. It seems that the entertainment group Yamashiro group is in charge, but it is characterized by a stateless sound incorporating ethnic music from around the world, expressing AKIRA 's worldview well and it was fantastic to hear. Well, I want a soundtrack.

[Good point] As we go to the second half, the sources of the story become complicated and strange. If I did not look closely, I missed the connection and the part with the real pleasure, but I was surprised at the outcome on the universe scale.

[Bad point] The picture has become old.

[Comprehensive evaluation] At the time, it was famous as a considerable topic work. Is it a coincidence that I am preparing the Olympic Games in 2019? It seems that progress in IT, mobile and so on did not predict about 1988. I am also intrigued by the difference that I drew for the future.

I think that setting and directing are wonderful.
Although it is not a novelty thing, if you look at the blade runner, I feel that there is no point other than the limits expressed by animation.
At that time, because I was in puberty, I understand their antisocial feelings somehow, but I was not able to empathize them.
It may be a fact that we spread Japanese anime to the world, but it is such a work that can not deny even an overvaluation.

I think music that I think is the highest peak of hand-drawn animation that overwhelmingly dazzling that I influenced the world.I think that the strange music of the entertainment mountain castle group also matches this world view and atmosphere
[Bad point]
Story. It is still impossible to put the epic story of the original in 2 hours, I think that the script went wrong, such as the severity of Miyako-san's handling and Mikako's handling only for the moment only the most important Akira

The picture is wonderful but the story has collapsed so evaluation is good

"The word" Akira is in everyone's mind. "Was impressive.
It seems like a feeling of almighty, which is often seen in early childhood. (I think the motorcycle is an important factor symbolizing it)
Especially in the case of Tetsuo, the consciousness to want to stand superior to others from a strong complex would have been strong.
In the presence of supernatural powers that will make it come true, it has been swallowed easily, such as ego.
Almighty feeling is something everyone holds more or less, but maybe I want to tell this work that there is a need to control well.
Otherwise it seemed as if there was a possibility that everyone could become like him, that is, it seemed as if a teacher-like theme was included.
It seems that we are enlightening about how to educate such children by making them the main character, who must nurture children in the right way.

In the conversation of three old children old in the last, it is suggested that the consciousness of people began to change, the words of Tetsuo were the most wanted because Kanada who tried to help him until the end was there I thought that it was the moment when I could finally acquire my identity.
I think that it is not a bad end when thinking so, selfishly.

Conclusion, pretty maniac work.
There are only places that I do not know yet, and since I have the impression that I just finished by asking the theme, it is not easy or bad to be honest, but I will consider it as the current evaluation taking into consideration the height of animation technology.
Interpretation for this work may change completely if I watch it several times.
There are depictions that are not good for mental health so it is certain that it is not recommended to everyone.

According to the reputation the image side is wonderful. Anime movies work basically well, but this animation moves further.
However, I can only imagine the point that I can praise it by letting go. Aside from that time, when I saw it now I did not feel any particular appeal to the story itself, after all I am not used to be more than a superb work within the genre called cyber punk.

As this work is quite famous work, there is not much to tell from me, but if it says strongly this work is overwhelmingly awesome drawing.
It is amazing how to make a "good" evaluation without making a story or anything related only with drawing!

I think that painting a picture to reproduce the mass and weight of an object alone at that time's cell picture was incredibly difficult, and I think that it is amazing to see it really indeed how many times it is seen in the final collapse scene Right.
Recent anime uses 3DCG to reproduce the movement of objects in many cases, but perhaps it seems that AKIRA's drawing is a few steps higher than the latest 3DCG technology now.

However, it was reality that there were many parts that I did not understand about the story so much.
Perhaps you do not understand if you do not read the original, but if you consider this work without reading the original, I feel I have to use considerable energy and physical strength (^ ^;
I think that this work is fine if you enjoy the movement of the picture. Without thinking about difficult things.
Evaluation is "good".

Hey Groy. I became a little traumatic in my childhood.

I think that it is a representative animated film in Japan, but I think that it is a wonderful animation that is not different from expectation.
Especially the image is wonderful, it can not be thought that it is a work of over 20 years ago.
The content is full of speed and sense, there is a part that can be sympathized with the torment of the iron man.
One of the works I want to see over and over again.

Lastly, in the confrontation between Kanada and Tetsuo, interactions like "Kaneda ~~" "Tsutsukeru bald ~~" were fun.

Although it may be a matter of age though, I think the drawing is pretty beautiful before 25 years or so, but when I look at Guilty Crown in recent years or it is not special shocking, neither battle nor character is good so I can not honestly satisfy Kana Kana (sweat)

Works that Katsuhiro Otomo's images and sensibility towards the world view were demonstrated without regret. Drawing and directing that combines muddiness, freshness, futuristic, realism and speed. It depicts youth living like self-assertion and self-assertion by the runaway, violence, urban obstruction feeling and anti-thing, chaotic atmosphere, broken parts of the era with unrelenting bloodshed and destruction, gun battle war etc. They are enclosed in a motorcycle chase scene chased by police officers. When Kanada is exposed to liquids on a motorcycle and gas and smoke are jetted out at the same time and the bike runs there, words that sense unity are suitable and converge on an explosion. The depiction of the light source and the existence of a mysterious person, the lines that I can not live outside also represents darkness and obstruction. Acting to make a stomach and dogeza is representative of a system that smells human. A person who seems to be the ruler of the back world.
Kaneda stands out because the police and school are solid. The theme also appears in the words "free revolution" and "hundred years old". Separately the guiding side is not wrong.
Fighting with the powerful person in the center of Tokyo, meaning of the revolution. It is a mystery of Akira such as the iron man grieving over powerlessness and fainting powerlessness. Many themes such as power control.
There is a fight with bad fight in the daytime, a landscape diversifying the explosion in the evening There are two patterns There is a story that ties the mystery of Akira and the story approaches the core.
Ironic man 's brain image and mysterious person' s speech are spooky.
Form of evolution and controllability is whether the city is involved and will save it.
A mystery to say what Akira chasing multiple people is hoping is a big key, interesting material. With the explanation that interests that it is the energy that produces everything, I will set it as the center, and as soon as the iron man pursues it, it releases power and shows destruction. At the same time it affects the town and it is treated like a savior as Akira calls madness so that the mystery becomes enormous and it can be regarded as a fanatical one that can be placed in a group. It is justice and power. It is impossible to imagine somehow because this work itself is a force that is justice and salvation. Even if it is abstract.
Iron Man is linked with Akira calling and becoming a fighting existence It is miserable, blood and raw. The plush toy is also creepy. Drawing of the base science and sense of speed are also wonderful.
The first half iron man no longer stop! It might be that there was a midfield with hints and Kanada stopped in the last stage. The inferiority feeling that the iron man was helped by Kanada appeared as destructive instinct, and the dialogue that a big person's body said such power is also deep.
The theme that Akira's power that he was looking for is among the power of everyone. But the roughness of the city is overwhelming.
It is the theme that the expansion of the scale is unusual, that the choice of iron man and inferiority feeling was so much, that it should not be used incorrectly with it.
The broken picture of the iron man was so terrible, that girl saved a little.

There is no gentle person so much, there is no lyrical atmosphere, etc. It is a work that wrote violence and darkness of urban darkness.

Although it sometimes happens to be "yes", it is also a fact that I could not take my eyes off as I mentioned earlier.
Original animation is "enjoying things" so I think that it is good animation in such a meaning.

It is an epic animation movie with production cost of 1 billion yen.
The feature of this work is,
I am adopting Spreco instead of dubbing.
A worldview with a background expressed with overwhelming precision.
Are these two points?

Through these, this work has established outstanding reality compared with other works.
Especially the character is amazing. I felt the living things that are lively and really existed there.
Sporeco is adopted so the performance of the voice actor is natural, there is no sense of incongruity in movement and dialogue of mouth.
Moreover, it seems to have five patterns of mouth movement which usually have only three patterns, and the figure which is talking is smooth. [Talking] I was very surprised at how powerfully putting the emphasis on it will change so far.

However. Although it is certain that this work [amazing] is unfortunate it was unfortunate [funny].
Because, I felt a gap which can not be ignored between setting of world view and drama by character.

Although the SF-like story seems to flicker with a focus on the word AKIRA, after all it does not understand what it is (after all, I know the identity, but I can not see how it relates to the world view) The story closes the curtain.
Maybe you can grasp the whole thing if you wear the waist twice, three times, but when asking people, apparently it will be obvious if you read the original without looking at this work, what you read from animation is It was difficult.

Besides, the center of the story was the engagement between Tetsuo and Kaneda, and I was hoping for these two people. With this quality, it would be enough for content that only dealt with in a flashy fashion, and that would probably be more popular.

However, in this work, as a result of taking time to the mystery part of AKIRA, it is impossible to do halfway even if these two donkeys are made.

Moreover, despite what you think about, the disadvantage of narrowing the audience level is more abundantly included, so there is no mercy. Although it did not bother to bother, I could have enjoyed it with a bitter entertainment act.

The personal impression is [It was a first-class article only by the original material, but as a result of being enthusiastic about making a big impressive masterpiece, it turned around and some elements canceled the good part and became a second-class product It is a regretful work that I closed.

Steady and beautiful drawing that is wonderful even now

[Bad point]
Shallow depth of character characterization Explosive explanation Explanation of deficient world view and setting grotesque expression

[Comprehensive evaluation]
It is also a work called SF episode monument. It is one of quite famous animations overseas too.

The most interesting point of this work will be a drawing that boasts the quality that should also be called the cutting edge of animation technology at the time.
Even now, even a first-class animator playing an active part in the front line is still participating, so there are some scenes that will not be able to see the voice unexpectedly even if you look at it now.

But, to be honest it is only attractive. As an SF animation, I do not deny the feeling of insufficient explanation about setting and the worldview etc, and I think that there are many parts that it is difficult to empathize with the story. Well, the hero is the old Yankee (laugh)
There are many parts that leave the imagination to the viewers, and grotesque expressions are also scattered, so we can not recommend it to people who are not good at such parts.

I think that there is nothing more than a monumental value almost now, as the drawing technique advanced and SF animation was also baptized. If you want to know the story, you'd better read the original manga.
Except for those who get drunk by the goodness of drawing, it is not an animation that you do not need to look elsewhere.

[Good point] Feeling reality, skin feeling, fine quality, Limited animation.

[Bad point] Somewhat, I feel abstract. 〓〓〓Although animation is originally such a thing. Children too moral, Jiji, Baba.

[Comprehensive evaluation] This work is a painting, visual entertainment.
So, as this movie eventually ended up, it is a collision between Tetsuo and Kanada's emotional theory. It is also a youth story of the high teen at the time of the aired.
The world view has taken up the subculture which was very common at that time at the time when it was a reckless family and Yu, established a reality.
Tetsuo = uncontrollable emotion, power, runaway = revenge against restricted world.
Contrast Kaneda = To the last, even if the life force of a life-size person = restrictive world, I live positive.
Well, why?

Well, anyway, I think that the true value of this animation is in the highest peak ever, Limited animation. 〓〓〓Number of drawing sheets quite large. Motion sense is also good. I think that the animator did a good job.
〓〓〓So, the digging of characters is also the minimum necessary.
Child Jizzy, Baba is thin compared to the original, compared with the original. It can not be helped by 〓〓〓腟〓〓relationship ...
However, regards Disney, regardless of its Japanese anime, its overreaction act is worth a visit !!

Although I think that it was quite excellent at that time as an artistic technique, since the content is not good, it is a work that is difficult to evaluate. At the time I am mainly playing the girls as a hero, it is very hot. Just the 80's.

However, it was certain that the setting was noteworthy at that time and stand out in terms of anti-ghibli-like meaning, I think that there was something that became a certain foundation of the Japanese near-future SF. I also read original manga, but this theatrical version of animation is thinner than the original, the depiction of the character is incomplete, and it is frank thought that it is hard to call a masterpiece. Technologies are constantly evolving, so if it is only attractive it means that the old one is old.

Watching on the screen at the time of theatrical release. It was a middle school student at the time w
After that I watch videos.DVD (Pioneer version and Bandai version) as well.
I am going to talk about memories, but I will review memories with no corrections.

[good point]
The point which drew a precise and chaotic story thoroughly without touching the hand.
I think that it was not only simple animation but also a movie of the time that it was a rare class in the movie of the time, not being a simple conscientious dissension, but summarizing it to a work of two hours without being biased toward SF, philosophy / real and fantasy.
It is also a work that proved that the quality of animation video is ambitious and enthusiastic, such as the change of Perth of Bill and politicians' lively performance, proving that the quality is enhanced as far as animation is sticking.

[Bad point]
The fun of the original was cut away.
AKIRA 's SF mechanic "charcoal" does not appear, Yamagata' s death is also omitted, there is no tank warfare in the shopping street, and the original was also rashfully drawn urban destruction scenes drawn carefully. The impressive scene where the iron man loses his arm has no impact as much as the original.
The way Kanada is drawn is subtly subtle. Although it was drawn as though it is wise and intelligent with knowledge in the original, in this work such descriptions are almost gone, it has become a light and thin short and small character. The voice actor of Kaneda role also keeps light performance and it does not match the image. I think that the English dubbed version of Kanada is closer to the original image.

[Comprehensive evaluation]
Although it seems not to be told so much, this work was not a work that responded to the expectation of the original fan at the time of the theatrical release. There was a significant retirement that spent 100 million yen at the time of video release, but it was only a retake of the scenes that was not successful in the theatrical release version, it was not like adding a new appearance. The original fan who ate the shoulder watermark twice in the theater and video kept quiet and about 10 years passed.
(Although I wrote it as a bad story to the review of "Steam Boy", in the form supported by the evaluation of overseas AKIRA fans, in Japan it has finally reached recently (around the time of bargain DVD release around?) Since bad reviews were forgotten Re-evaluated)

Regarding the image, at that time, the animation mania seemed to have been many manians who liked "the wings of the Royal Space Army Honneamith". There is the impression that the Royal Space Army was released to a point ahead of AKIRA, or that AKIRA's drawing was hardly talked about until recently.
Rather, the representation of wrinkles of mouth that is characteristic of Kotohiro Otomo character is quite abundant (as at the time of Ghibli work "Homipporoporo") was a lot negative. It was predominantly a bitter evaluation that roughly "only the number of drawings is large and it is costly".

So, AKIRA's high evaluation up to the recent excessive question marks.
I do not possess it, but certainly the Blu-ray version of AKIRA is outrageously high quality.
But the evaluation can be overturned just by changing the times?

... just seems like a reaction to recent animated cartoon girls.
It is probably because only about that matter was that it was only about that, because only "it is too much peeky and you can not do it for you" on the net, "Take down san! Deco assistant dude!" And "Kaneda bike" only.

Simply putting the story together is a story of honor and friendship of bad boys.
Regarding the story behind the animated version, since there are many interesting stories and amazing original drawings on the book "AKIRA ARCHIVE", it is worth reading.

This work, which is an anime version, comes backfired as having a high density, it is not a story-like work of an interesting class.

Rather, the viewing method that matches the most demand would be BGV. You can enjoy enough just by watching the unique music of the entertainment Yamashiro group and the unparalleled images depicted one after another.

If young people are planning to see this work from now on, do not believe in the evaluation that they are masterpieces. It would be better to think that it is a phantom animation that thoroughly made high-density chaotic works. Whether it is interesting or not is for each person, but for those who can enjoy a sense of rice cakes it will be able to fully enjoy it.

Afterwards a snake is ....
In the theatrical release version, it seems that Takashi desperately held hands with a bead in a scene where numbers are praying just before AKIRA resurrection (haha). Even if I examine it with a picture collection of story etc later, it does not seem to be such a description .... After all I wonder if it is my memory mistake?

I do not feel the interestingness of this animation besides drawing.
The story is also subtle, and the character can not be likable so much.
Bullying is this counterattack, but there is no doubt that Shotaro had a few reasons.
Speaking of a character that is a hero, he is about that person, that is his character.
It looks like ordinary Yankee 's struggle to grotesque, there are lots of unpleasant elements to watch.
It is at most the end of the bike battle scene of the beginning so it ends in all of them.
I will not rush at the end, and the scene which should be hot with originally a dark father who is going to settle down will not rise too much.
Well, honest impressions as to whether memorization correction which was high at that time was high is high.
Since it is dealt with frequently in anime ranking etc., I saw it to the last without seriously, but I could not find a good part until the end.

.View of the world

First of all it is overwhelming drawing.
Although it is realistic, although the characters leaving the touch of the comic move, it moves as if it is somewhat dirty, and the good looking one still continues the legendary evaluation Even now it is nodded that it has a strong popularity overseas as well.
I think that it was correct that it took time to split up the explanation for a short time.
I personally had an impression like Sekai type main character. (I think that it is an overseas science fiction novel if it follows further the original, and "transience" which seems to be a feature of the Sekai family is not a pictorial aspect at all)
Before watching it I was reading the AKIRA item of Wikipedia quickly or it came in smoothly and I was moved more than I expected. I did not expect to be moved ....
Exterior aspects such as drawing and good-looking bad boys are prone to attract attention, but it was a work that is functioning as a heavy sci-fi that has a theme firmly in addition to those external surfaces.
Although it is it, the atmosphere which is never wet should also be excellent.
Although original manga is unread, I thought that I would like to read it.

From the beginning to the end the superb sense of the world 's Otomo glows.
Nournull moving painting. It adopts Presco method for audio recording, and movement of human mouth is also fun to see in diversity unlike general Japanese animation.
I love Kaneda and Tetsuo 's super unique character.
The sprint of the early motorbike scene is the best. Kaneda bike which is legend is also over than rumors!
Descriptions of ESP are cool every time. The shape is felt though the wall and the floor are dented into a spherical shape and it can not be seen, but it is amazing.
The performance performed by the voice actors is felt naturally. Mitsuo Iwata, in particular Shotaro Kaneda.
Russeller Russeller and other head - minded names BGM.
"Would you like that dog's pet ben!?" "You want it, you also do not have the baggage." "(For the black clothes) Return to the funeral!" "That's right, kill you! "I will help you this time, do not tell me, Kan chan!" "Octopus is dead on land?" "Oh, you got a boss too? This mountain of rubble "Yo!" "Put" Mr. "Deco Girlfriend !!"
Although the person called Kotohiro Otomo is the idea that the Cambrian explosion-grade revolution has occurred in the cartoon world but the spot hits the spot too much because the composition of the picture is not so impressive but the impression that the dialogue is appreciated is not particularly impressive of young people like a thriller I wonder if you can call it as Otomo branch as far as I can tell.

There are many elements to be praised such as cool productions, cool actions, 80's unique high-level paintings, but it is better to show the content, especially what you want to tell through the work, as a side to watch but in such efforts It seems that most of theatrical animation is not such things as Akira real intention, though it seems that emphasis on appearance is more important than

While writing this evaluation, it is only an individual feeling that good anime has confirmed this time that it cries, laughs, is moved, and shakes the feelings of those who saw it

I saw this famous work this time for the first time.
It was a powerful image that I could not think of as an anime in the past.
The beginning was bored early in the beginning.
It is getting interesting from the middle just as the Tetsuo awakens, but it was the way of finishing the last is not clarified.
It was a work I did not understand.
