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?
• Listen How You Want: The 25th Anniversary release of Akira features both English dubs that have occurred since 1988, letting you choose the track that’s best for you.
• An Audiophiles Dream: Includes the “Hypersonic” 24-Bit, 192kHz Dolby TrueHD remaster of the original Japanese audio track.
• Exploding with Extras: Packed with over 120 minutes of on-disc extra features; including the “Restoring Akira” documentary and original storyboards for the anime.
Akira is one of the best anime movies that I have ever seen.
The original Japanese track is of higher sound quality than the English dub version, I recommend Japanese voice, with English subtitles for a great experience.
So all that I can really say is if you like Kubrick movies, you will probably get a kick out of this film.
This seminal movie in the history of animated movies. Before Akira, American animation was product-based and mindless while Japanese anime was rudimentary and very pop. Read morePublished 1 day ago by MC

Fantastic movie, the only reasons I give it 4 stars instead of 5 is because Amazon Instant video didn't have the Japanese audio option. Hope they fix that soon!Published 8 days ago by Monica Reyes Santiago

|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
