Akira, an anime my folks didn’t want me to watch when I was young because of its violence but still wanted me to watch when I got the chance, and man, was I glad to finally watch it. For those who haven’t seen it, its a film set in a futuristic post-apocalyptic Tokyo and with psychic and military warfare included. There has been talks for couple years now that we would be getting a live action Akira movie but seems like the writers strike put a halt in it (what did WGA Strike not hurt or stopped?). It seems Book of Eli directors, Albert and Allen Hughes are in talks with WB to direct the rumored 2 film adaptation of the hit anime and manga series. Do you guys think they will be able to pull of what it takes for Akira to be translated well from Anime/Manga to Live Action, or is this something we should be worried about. One thing I know, it’ll be better than Kanye West’s Stronger music video.
