    ok so i saw akira for the first time, the special edition. i must say that movie is confusing and wierd. I think the story was koo but i got confused at the very end about how the beginnging of the universe and his boy was fucked up in the head. I'm confused on the whole thing still.

    agreed, i didnt find it to be no master piece of any sort. Just very gory and confusing.

    the dvd butchered the story and dubbing, now the movie doesnt make any damn sense. if you want to see a much cooler version get the laserdisc or the vhs

    in 95 when it was first released on scifi it was possibly the best thing ever, but still made almost no sense as to what the hell was going on, even with subs... if you want to get the whole story read the manga, and you'll realise how much they butchered the story. if they had done 3 parts of 2-2.5hour movies they could have brought the whole story together and not had to butcher scenes together.


    case in point the big battle with the clowns in the movie you see boss clown on the bike, in the manga its tetsuo whos the leader of the clowns...
