In 1988, the widely popular Japanese manga Akira was adapted into a full-length anime feature set in a futuristic Neo-Tokyo rebuilt from the ashes of World War III. The film successfully brought a new international interest to Japanese anime and manga and set a standard that still exists to this day. But does this tale of two friends pitted against each other amidst psychics, revolutionaries, genetics and high-tech armies deserve the acclaim it recieved or should it be laid to waste? MovieDude Eric, Kent & Chris find out.
