Neo-Tokyo is about to E X P L O D E! Akira isnâ€™t just a movie â€“ itâ€™s the genesis of a genre. Katsuhiro Otomoâ€™s landmark cyberpunk classic obliterated the boundaries of Japanese animation and forced the world to look into the future. Akiraâ€™s arrival shattered traditional thinking, creating space for movies like the The Matrix to be dreamed into brutal reality. Without Kaneda and Tetsuo, without espers and psionic assassins, without that badass motorcycle â€“ our world would be a far less exciting place to exist. But the manga became the movie and the movie became a phenomenon and the world took notice. Now, Akira is everywhere. If you canâ€™t see it in the streets â€“ if you canâ€™t feel it crawling around inside your brain â€“ then you have yet to be initiated. What. Are. You. Waiting. For? â€¢ Listen How You Want: The 25th Anniversary release of Akira features both English dubs that have occurred since 1988, letting you choose the track thatâ€™s best for you. â€¢ An Audiophiles Dream: Includes the â€œHypersonicâ€ 24-Bit, 192kHz Dolby TrueHD remaster of the original Japanese audio track. â€¢ Exploding with Extras: Packed with over 120 minutes of on-disc extra features; including the â€œRestoring Akiraâ€ documentary and original storyboards for the anime.
