    The manga had 6 volumes and totaled over 2000 pages. May more characters and subplots are in the manga compared to the movie.

    the dub was decent but i didn't watch it because so many of the voices apeared in other popular animes. was kinda unusual

    well the movie ends at the end of book 2

    and they condensed and redid whole sections of the movie.

    just so you can get a glimpse of this.

    the scene at the begining were kaneda and clown are playing chicken,in ethe manga this sequence is from a 2nd fight their gang has with the clowns and happens roughly in the middle of book 2, but major twist is tetsuo is the leader of the clowns and is there driving the bike with his arms crossed using his powers to drive.

    the priest you see being carted arround also has a major role in the manga as she is one of the test subjects that escaped 30 years ago.

    I remember watching it on a bootleg fan sub back in 90-91. That movie had me hooked for searching underground for wild anime.

    sigh...anime was so much more raw back in the day....

    I'm so fawking old
