#cyberpunk / Explore Akira’s Neo Tokyo through rare artworks by the legendary anime’s art directors.

Akira is one of a few stories that is amazing but as manga and anime. If you haven’t read the original manga, you’re missing out. If you haven’t watched the anime adaptation you’re, again, missing out. The story is amazing, but the look is off the charts. The film set a bar for science fiction—cyberpunk in particular—that remains to this day. Take a look at the It’s Nice That piece and you’ll see why for yourself.
