Went to a screening of Akira tonight at the LA Animation Festival. I’ve seen it a few times since I first watched it with my brother when I was 11, but have never gotten to see it on a big screen. Appreciation on an entirely new level. Fucking astounding. The effects animation alone will blow your mind.
Crazy to think this came out the year before the Little Mermaid. Imagining the tedium of working on an animated film in a pre-digital age makes me want to kill myself.
The movie that probably got me really into anime…next to Dragon Ball
Saw all of this movie not too long ago. Simply. Amazing. xD but now I wanna see it on a big screen…
