    First off, no I am not a Kanye West fan, yes I do agree that this is in fact better than Spirited Away! This is truly a one-of-a-kind movie that was able to accomplished (visually) what live action couldn't before CGI (not to say the practical effects of movies like The Thing, Star Wars and Alien(s) weren't magnificent!) Plus the script works in such a way that it is impossible to classify it in a single genre of film! It seamlessly blends elements of science fiction, action, (body) horror, dystopian future and a bit of political thriller into something that works as just about each one, which I consider an amazing feat considering many films struggle to mix two genres like action and horror (looking at you Resident Evil). Not to mention that the animation could male Lion King sit in a corner and pout (I apologize but yes I did have to go there) while still retaining a certain retro 80's charm that I just cannot resist (I'm a bit 80's guy)! What are you waiting for, watch this movie already, and if you have seen it before, see it again! You owe it to yourself'

    This is so well-animated, but I didn't understand it at all. I watched it more than halfway through but I had to stop because it made absolutely no sense. I could not follow the sorry at all...

    This is the latter dubbed version and it's alright, but the original english translated version was better in my opinion than this one. Still a great movie though.

    That is the most lackluster/missed the point description for this movie. It's hard to really describe I guess, but it was ground breaking has influenced live action movies to this day. That's movie, not TV show. Sigh
  • Why?

    I love this movie, but why is it labeled under TV shows? Akira is a movie not a show, it originally aired in theaters. Maybe it's under here because it aired on the Sci-fi channel, either way this needs to be fixed.
  • Amazing movie but in TV section

    I was a touch bewildered by “Akira” being classed as a TV show, but I didn’t dwell too long on it. I liked the fact that it was 10 bucks. But after skimming the reviews, I feel terrible for not being initially repulsed by it’s classing. It made me wonder if I was being too dispassionate for someone who considers themselves a fan. So now, I’m disgusted and enraged by this flagrant and utter debauchery. Are we mere beasts? Whom crawl on all fours and forage carrion, purchasing whatever scraps we find on iTunes? Please, restore order within your digital domain and put ‘Akira’ in the Movie section.

    Change the catagory from TV Show to Movie. This was released in Japan as a MOVIE, and NOT a TV Show.
