Don’t know what I can say about Akira that hasn’t been said. The animation is fucking amazing, and the main characters Kaneda and Tetsuo are both really interesting. My favorite scenes in the movie we’re Tetsuo’s dream sequences. The movie does a really good job painting a seriously grim and dire world. It felt immersive, and the character arcs both boys go through is even more compelling in this world. At worst, some dialogue is dated and a it feels like there are too many unnecessary characters. The guy my friends dubbed a “chipmunk” and the girl Kaneda simps for, I wish did more, or just weren’t in the film. But yeah it’s definitely worth a watch, hot take I know.

Also something something FNAF and Minecraft
