Mooching about looking at anime blu rays after missing out on the 12 days All The Anime deals and realised no one had posted the latest release of Akira yet so here it is at its cheapest.

Just £6.30 after using the SIGNUP10 code (which is multi use and works whether you sign up or not) its 70p cheaper than amazon but you dont have to drop £20 to get free delivery.

This version (as most will know) of AKIRA on Blu-ray features both the original 1988 Streamline English dub and the 2001 Pioneer/Animaze English dub as well as the original Japanese dub (with English subtitles).

+ you get a free itunes digital version as well fwiw.

+ 4.2% TCB

Everyone who looks at this will probably know all about Akira but i'll include the blurb anyway.

Iconic and game-changing, Akira is the definitive anime masterpiece! Katsuhiro Otomo s landmark cyberpunk classic obliterated the boundaries of Japanese animation and forced the world to look into the future. Akira s arrival shattered traditional thinking, creating space for movies like The Matrix to be dreamed into brutal reality.

Neo-Tokyo, 2019. The city is being rebuilt post World War III when two high school drop outs, Kaneda and Tetsuo stumble across a secret government project to develop a new weapon - telekinetic humans. After Tetsuo is captured by the military and experimented on, he gains psychic abilities and learns about the existence of the project's most powerful subject, Akira. Both dangerous and destructive, Kaneda must take it upon himself to stop both Tetsuo and Akira before things get out of control and the city is destroyed once again.

Special Features: Akira Sound Clip (1988), Music for Akira, Director Interview (subtitled), Storyboard Collection, The Writing on the Wall, Original Trailers (subtitled), Original Commercials (subtitled), Restoring Akira, Glossary, U.S. 2013 Trailer, Trailers.

already own it on double tape special ed VHS and Pioneer Region 1 DVD. think i'll skip and wait for 4k.... not that i'd notice a difference.
My VHS collectors edition outlived the VHS which was binned at least fifteen years ago
Great value, have some heat Horace
I caught this on the Syfy channel when it was aired not so long ago, which dub version did I most likely get? I wasn't so keen on the dub, would always much prefer subs.

imo at this price get it and listen to both or go original japanese track + subs. Not sure which dub they would have used tbh.

Classic Anime - heat added
without sounding like an anorak. the film is only half of the manga comic series. but tbh this is the better half.
