Akira (Bonus Disc) back to product details

The REAL reason why this DVD comes across as recommended.

You can find my impressions of this movie in my review on Disc 1. This review concentrates on the special features that make this edition of AKIRA deserve its subtitle as "special". There's absolutely everything you'd want to know about this film, including a 45-minute "making-of" documentary, a 20-minute featurette on the creation of the music, an interview with Otomo, three excellent featurettes about the remastering process (and where three talented actors from the English dub -- Johnny Yong Bosch as Kaneda, Joshua Seth as Tetsuo, and Wendee Lee as Kei -- get to speak their thoughts, too; an exciting feature considering that I'm into dubs), and a glossary. The latter feature helps make the movie more comprehensible, as it explains some of the terms found in the film -- not to mention the cryptic ending.

Bottom-line: even if you are a non-fan of this movie, you are invited to check out this DVD release.
