Just picked up the Geneon/Pioneer simple version of Akira, the 1988 film that started the anime craze that has continued in the US until this very day. Man it looks awesome on disc. I wanted the collector's tin for a long time, but could never afford it at the time. This is a nice alternative.

$7.50/tx at Walmart. Cant beat that.

To be honest with you, I've always felt Akira was an overrated movie.

I honestly disagree. It is an insane film. And prolly still the best anime quality I've seen. Feel free to make suggestions if you know of more fantastic stuff.

Princess Mononoke. Animation quality is much better, the story is more interesting and enjoyable, and the movie has some pretty cool fight scenes.

I will look into that then, if you recommend it. I'm always looking for suggestions on asian films/anime. Razz

I personally love the Ghost in the Shell and Samurai X.

I dislike both Akira and PM.

Ugh... GitS. I won't watch that movie again. That woman talks too damn much. I mean, I loved the irony of the movie but it just isn't any fun to watch IMO. Samurai X is pretty sweet though.

A good story that makes me think doesn't bother me either. It was just the way she spoke that bored me to death. Her words had very little emotion behind them. I understand that she talks that way because she is questioning her humanity or whatever but she was still boring as hell to listen too.

I was entertained by Killer 7, but when I went to replay it, it just fell flat. Once all its cards are played, there's no reason to. Wild experience first time thru I thought tho. So I dug it, put it on ebay and moved on.
