Akira (spoilers)
« on: November 14, 2003, 02:40:17 pm »
AKIRA
Has anyone seen this movie?
Its an amazing Anime about a huge city in the future
with all the problems like gang violence, drugs, impoverishment; plitical instability...
In this environment gang leader Kaneda and his friend Tetsuo get involved with a mysterious child with exceptional abilities...http://http://www.animenfo.com/animetitle,33,xmjics,akira.html

Its really awesome, go and watch it. And get the OST ;too

So my question is, If anyone has seen this movie I would appreciate  if he could explain the end^^

Hi,
Yeah..I watched it a few years ago and I thought it was good. But I also couldn't understand the ending. Maybe I have to watch it one more time to really understand the story... :)

Have you tried looking on the web for commentaries.  I know one of my old uni lecturers did a thing on Akira in his book, not sure if the content ever made it online.  Try a google search for it.

And drugs arent really good for your health either (Tetsuo)...
I really wonder if Tetsuo and the three children were dead in the end.
Links are welcome^^

hard to explain if you haven't read the Manga
Do yourself a favor and read them. They are great!

i suggest u read the manga before you watch, the manga is a much better than the anime since the movie is trying to pack more than 10000 pages into 90 minutes...but hey atleast the graphics were awesome

I seen Akria years ago before I was into anime.

I never really liked it at all. I still say theres better out there. But some people think its pretty good.
Thats my opinion.

This movie is what got me started into watching anime HEAVILY.  I remember when it first got released on video in the US all those years ago.  The dub was actually decent then, the new one is just completely laughable (not that I care since I don't watch dubs anymore at all).  I was extremely surprised to see that there are people who have just seen this movie for the first time recently, then I realise how old I am and that most of the people posting here are probably a lot younger than me...  This is a classic anime.  

PS:  I had to watch it a couple of times before the ending made sense.  I suggest you do the same.  :D

Every anime fan has or will watch Akira; the style of it is amazing for a show made in 1988.   It's sad that some animated movies or oavs can't get that type of quality.  Don't get me wrong I understand money is an issue. But Akira still looks sweet today.  And it's a great story. <My opinion> I hope to read the manga one day.

well i read the manga ( & now i need to buy it ) it's really nice , the anime is not really good (in my opinion) but it's probably due to the fact that i read the manga before .
