Best way to piss off the bad ones is to tell them "Akira wasn't that good," even if they've never seen it they'll defend that thing like it was a ******* religion.

i'm not really a missive anime fan, but the Manga and the film were both brilliant dude.

It was a bit overrated in my opinion, I'll admit the animation was fantastic, I've never seen anything to moved so fluidly and looked so good (hell, they even had lip syncing to what the characters actually said rather then the typical one shape mouth movement that just seems to randomly wave around like a dying fish) but if you haven't read the manga then the plot made almost no sense, and you should have to read the manga to understand the film, maybe if they made it into a show they'd be able to fit everything in but they tried to cram the manga (keep in mind I've never read it) in a measly two hours and thus it just ended as a jumbled mess.

I'd have to disagree. Bearing in mind Katusriho Otomo also wrote, directed and produced the movie, I thought it was a really good adaptation. Obviously he couldn't fit his whole manga into a movie (and a series would have been much better) but by switching around aspects of the story it worked out fine. It's meant to be an alternate version. You don't need to read the manga to understand it all, as the manga is much more in depth and features alot more characters. The movie isn't really crammed at all - if anything it felt a little shallow to me. The lack of characters like Miyako or Joker, or the fact Tetsuo's new Tokyo Empire wasn't featured at all disappointed me, but the movie was a great reshuffling of the story I found

right i only read the first manga but i swear Akira was actually alive in it, like he came out of the freezy thing at the end and he was a little boy. And tetsuo became the leader of the clowns or somit lmao, film missed so much out
