The movie is worth seeing for any self declared anime fan, as it was a significant influence on the cyberpunk genre, and influenced other movie works, such as 'Ghost in the Shell', and the 'Matrix' series.


    How very right that you are

    Hey, I saw a movie titled Akira once. As far as I remember, it was at the end part.. there was a policeman/woman in a tunnel.. (was it a cop or just a civilian?) Akira was an alein in that movie.. then there was this big explosion that destroyed the city and akira. Well I dont know really but was part of the movie that you guys are talking about?

    Not quite. The majority of the cartoon produced by American animation studios in the 1930's and 1940's were made for an adult audience. Racist jokes, Gay jokes, war propoganda, racy depictions of actresses -those weren't put into the cartoons for the kiddies. Also there was a sort of mini-boom of adult-oriented animated features that were made in the 1960's and 1970's which included Fritz the Cat, Fantastic Planet, and Wizards in the US (mostly the efforts of Harry Crumb and Ralph Bakshi) and French-produced films like Heavy Metal and Ranxerox in the late 70's/early 80's.

    What can be said about Akira is that it was one of the first widely-distributed animation projects from Japan to show there was more to anime than just the commonly held stereotypes of mindless cute, giant robots, and tentacle sex.
