'Akira' is one epic sic-fi anime. The animation still impresses with it's grand sights, bright colors, and attention to detail. The experience is immersive right from the opening shot. This is hand-drawn perfection. The story has themes of corruption through gained power, repeating past tragedies, and seeking a higher purpose. It starts off strong, but requires more attention to comprehend in the second half. Some explanations are muddled. The wild action is enough to overshadow that. This is one cool flick that all anime and sic-fi fans should check out.
