    Link: Coming Soon: Akira, The American Version - As a huge Akira fan, I almost had a stroke when I saw this. Then I recovered my ability to think.

    Akira`s a groundbreaking anime movie that showed American audiences a glimpse at anime done right, with mouths that move and beautiful art and all that. You should see it if you haven`t.

    and if you can, read it as well, because the book has a radically different storyline

    Holy biscuits.
    When I read the link title I actually thought it was going to be a trailer for the live-action movie.

    My head hurts so bad.
    Like, I think I actually almost had a stroke.
    For the sake of humanity, that thing had better never make it past pre-production stages.

    Oh, and for those who haven`t heard, America`s also making a live-action Cowboy Bebop "film".
    Nothing is sacred.

    akira was the very first Japanese anime film i ever saw. and i was amazed by it. after that i also saw princess monenoko it also was great, i have never liked and hardly watched any other animes as much as these two.

    no offence but America shouldn`t make live action anime films at all. we just don`t do it right. now the death note movie (made in Japan though), that was great

    LMAO That was freaking hilarious, and I`ve seen Akira. Also, I had no clue they were making a live action remake. Since when? I`m not a huge fan, and don`t like anime in general in fact, but even I know what a classic Akira is. You just don`t mess with it.

    I like some anime, specifically comedy/mildly hentai (Project A-Ko, Burn-Up) but I have absolutely zero interest in Akira. It bored me more than the Macross series, and THAT was yawn city.

    "Ugh anything anime related is awful by default."

    not true. Google Studio Ghibli. Someone mentioned Princess Mononeke, thats one by Studio Ghibli. But the real gems from them are Grave of the Fireflies (absolutely heartwrenching and amazing story about the japanese war), Howl`s Moving Castle and Spirited Away.

    Highly highly highly recommend those movies to anyone, even if you arent into cartoons. The graphics and storylines are truly amazing.

    Speaking of anime:

    Someone today told me I look like anime with my hair. I don`t think it`s a compliment...
