YesAsia Editorial Description

Director Otomo Katsuhiro's brilliance is undeniable in his awe-inspiring 1988 masterpiece Akira! Through stunning animation, Akira takes viewers into a war-stricken, post-apocalyptic Neo-Tokyo. Set in the year 2019, Neo-Tokyo is a highly technological city plagued by civil unrest and political instability. The military conjures up a top secret project in hopes of controlling the power force that caused the explosion that wiped out Tokyo 31 years ago. Street punk Tetsuo is abducted and used as test subject, but the experiment goes terribly wrong, unleashing the power within Tetsuo.

SMOKING HOT! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
There is very little to say here, yes there are great animes out there and this is one of the greatest. Eye popping visuals and artwork second to none, this is one hell of an anime.
Based on the comic book Akira this followed the comic true to the story but trying to compress so much into such a short time meant some small details were missed from time constraints. Still the story was accurately played out.
A government experiment accidentally oblitereates much of central Tokyo and years later the government is still up to its old tricks believing they can controll the forces they are trying to unleash. When a member of a rogue motorcycle gang, Tetsuo Shima is injured in an encounter with one of the government experiments he is taken into the new secret facility and becomes involved against his will where his powers are unleashed. This is an 'all hell breaks out' story warning of the temptation to try to control things beyond our control.
It is a smart well told story that crosses many cultural barriers. It was easy to follow and action galore. You actually feel for the characters more than in many animations since they are so true to real life the way they act and behave. No funny hairdoos, no gigantic butterknife swords, no funky costumes that defy physics and gravity. Just good old home cooked animation served up hot for you to enjoy!

"Akira" (DTS Sound Verions_) Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
Curious, how this DTS version differs from the US version that came a few years ago after the big re-introduction to the public by creating multiple-versions for the curious to the collector versions in a metal-container. The DTS version was a subsequent release about a yea later later, perhaps less time passed, but if you have that sound retrieval on your system you should go for the DTS version it is dynamic.

Kaneda dou surundayo! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
Akira is one of the most historical and classic anime movies!! The picture has been improved drastically and the sound is DTS remastered!! This version contains only the movie - no extra features.
The dialogue is in Japanese and there are no subtitles.
The voice actor for Kaneda (Iwata Mitsuo) is cool!!
