Man o-man I just got the Akira -Special Edition- on DVD baby with 2 flaming Discs that includes the film, which is crispy clean and sharp and the details takes the cake guys (this is excellent!!!:D ),including some documentries on making the film which has been done on alot of specs and dubs:eek: .
A animation that came out in '87, is still outstanding!

Yeah, that movie still holds its own in today's market. I remember seeing part of it in 5th grade on the Sci-Fi channel and it was my first glimpse into the anime world (pretty good movie to start out on, huh?). Incredible extras on the DVD, too. Hell, I'd buy the movie just for the nifty tin it comes in :)

Nuff said;

Produced by AKIRA COMMITTEE/KODANSHA 1987 AKIRA

I don't know where you guys get your info:p but the film did come out in '87
And the first spot of Akira was in a japanese magazine waaaaaaay back in '82;) ;) :yawn:

Well now this is interesting. All of my sources say '88. Hell 2 of those are reviews of this specific DVD. For now I'll back down, until I find out the cause of the discrepancy.

Ok guys CHECK THIS OUT!


Quote taken from http://www.akira2001.com/html/thelegend.html
the OFFICIAL website

In 1987, Akira creator Katsuhiro Otomo began work on the animated feature. Akira was released theatrically in Japan in July 1988 and in the United States in December 1989 where it ranked in the top 60 for 20 weeks on Variety's weekly theatrical box office sales report.
In otherwords the film was first released in 1988 like I said but is COPYRIGHT 1987 when the film first went into producion.

I hope that clears up any confusion.
