This trailer sucks. Doesn't capture the feel/awesomeness of the movie.

"Now you're king of the mountain, aren't you? But it's all garbage!" Is probably one of my favorite quotes of this movie... It can be interpreted as so many different things.

-So that guy with the red jacket is Akira?
-No, that is Kaneda
-ah ok...so Kaneda is the main character?
-No, that is actually Tetsuo..

80's Sci-fi Animation that even when revisited today, still seems to be far ahead of its time.

akira changed the course of anime forever. after its release amine was re-centered towards mature content for an older audience. what a fantastic film!

I saw it at uni when it first came out and it was groundbreaking and amazing then. I am now 50 years old and still find it the best anime example ever. Just sit back and enjoy. absolutley sublime.

Better watch this movie with original audio (japanese) and subtitles. It's more emotional.

Man, just going to say I'm happy I didn't watch this dub, the acting and writing is awful. And I'm usually all for dubs, but phew dodged a bullet here

Still a shame no other trailer, fanmade or otherwise, uses the original Streamline dub at all.
