do not watch the THX version, the digital encoding of the video ruins all the fine lines.
Great show, what a finale.
Anyone care to suggest something else? I've GITS and Akira, but other than that I'm an anime n00b. I thinking of Ninja Scroll next.
You might want to check out Ghost in the Shell, I personally didn't like it, but many compare it to Akira.
Akira is a great film, but the comic (manga) is so much better it will blow you away, I highly recommend picking that up if you liked the movie.
BEBOP > *
no, akira> *
i watched it last night and words couldn't express what a truly amazing picture this is.
tetsuuuuuooooooooo! kinedaaaaaaaaa! ~blorp!~
if your looking for just movies, try escaflowne, ninja scroll, or spriggan.
I really don't know why everone and their mom swears by Akira... the best EVAR? Year right! I think it was very boring and should be seen for the animation only.
The animation in Akira WAS astounding. Great mating of visual and audio. The story IS good, but NOT THAT AMAZING...
Ninja Scroll is a must have for any ANIME lover. It roxs!!! So does Samurai X.
Akira is a pretty deep film, but I think that is lost on most of its harshest critics. I've watched it countless times and wrote some papers on it for film classes.
I would avoid the Escaflowne film unless you've watched the television series first.
Ninja Scroll is very good. Both Vampire Hunter D films are good as well.
Grave of the Fireflies > Akira
Akira is a good anime, but way overrated
you can't compare ninja scroll and vampire hunter d to akira, thats for morons and fools. which one are you!?!?
I must concur.
Akira = over rated fodder
