Akira isn’t just a movie – it’s the genesis of a genre. Katsuhiro Otomo’s landmark cyberpunk classic obliterated the boundaries of Japanese animation and forced the world to look into the future. Akira’s arrival shattered traditional thinking, creating space for movies like the The Matrix to be dreamed into brutal reality. Without Kaneda and Tetsuo, without espers and psionic assassins, without that badass motorcycle – our world would be a far less exciting place to exist. But the manga became the movie and the movie became a phenomenon and the world took notice. Now, Akira is everywhere. If you can’t see it in the streets – if you can’t feel it crawling around inside your brain – then you have yet to be initiated. What. Are. You. Waiting. For?

|Widescreen or Fullscreen?||
Fullscreen releases were always cropped. The film was composed at a widescreen ratio.
I think originally intended to be done on 70mm film which would have been on a 65mm negative but i think in the end because of budget it was done on 35mm and blown up for 70mm.

Anime network news has confirmed that this will include the Streamline and Pioneer English dubs as well as the original Japanese language track with subtitles. This was my only buying reason also. love the original Streamline dub.

Doesn't appear to be so. I was hopeful that in this day and age it would have been included in the combo, but alas, we're both disappointed
