Interview with AKIRA creator Katsuhiro Otomo & My Current Impressions of the classic anime film

Interview with AKIRA creator Katsuhiro Otomo, with English subtitles! This interview was conducted after the movie was completed. It was originally included on the Japanese Laserdisc of Akira, released in 1993 by Pioneer LDC.

Meanwhile, do scroll on down to see what an average fan of AKIRA (AKA “ME”!) has to opine about the anime classic! LOL

Neo-Tokyo still looks magical, with this 1988 classic anime looking spectacular! If you haven't watched #AKIRA the anime feature film, do yourself a favour, go find it and watch it, savour it, and then you might understand the respect it receives and deserves, IMHO. If you'll only watch ONE single anime film in your life, I'd recommend #AKIRA any time, any decade, any era. #cellanimation #notCGIA photo posted by TOYSREVIL (@toysrevil) on Jun 25, 2016 at 7:23am PDT
