O YEAH MSN TOLD ME OF THIS LOOL Im IN
Over TWO decades old!
This was an anime that literally changed my life. This anime is OVER a decade old and still has substance. Still to this day sets the bar for other animes. I am very conservative when I rate movies and I wholeheartedly give this a 10/10.
@konokoshida Absolutely agree with you 100%.
A blast from the past.

10/10 it deserve it from the bottom of my heart.
one move that I watch about every 3 years literally thas when you know you have a classic it never gets old!
If this is what people think is the best of anime I must conclude that these people haven't seen some of the other better stuff, like Nausicaa or even Steamboy. This is a sick violence-fest and I actually fell asleep in the middle of it because I could not find anything to like in any of the characters. I guess some people see whiny brats who take pleasure in violence for its own sake as somehow heroic. I do not.
Manga at its best.
A massive achievement in cell animation and a landmark anime film. This twisted and compelling story of sanity and humanity merits multiple viewings to fully grasp its complicated plot and appreciate it's groundbreaking animation
I would only recommend Akira to a friend if (a) I knew they loved films as much as I do (since it is one of the most influential anime films) or (b) he was an avid anime lover and by some chance hadn't seen it yet. Maybe I would have a stronger opinion if I had watched Akira in 1988 when it was released rather than now, and understand it was a groundbreaking film in anime while deleivering a deep message. But initially, I watched it because I've never seen an anime film and thought where better to start than with a classic. I have to say it didn't make a die-hard fan out of me, but I'm glad I watched it.
While massively violent, Akira is a genius landmark in animation and sci-fi storytelling.
