Pre-order: Akira film in 4K version
Akira is one of those works that are in the pantheon of the manga world. Its writer, Katsuhiro Ōtomo, was at the center of creating the anime in addition to creating the original material. Akira is a true masterpiece that is a Dantesque work. It shines with its particularly fluid animation at the time, its scenario (though different from the manga) borrowed from the trauma of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings, or its original soundtrack created by the Geinoh Yamashirogumi collective. Released in 1988, this film benefited from a full remaster and a switch to 4K to mark the manga’s 30th anniversary. Improved colors and, most importantly, a living tribute to the titanic work in terms of animation Blu-ray comes with the special steelbook for the 30th anniversary.
