Didn't realize my Blu-ray was a region B only. Zavvi's response: " Well, it clearly stated it was, so there's no returns or refunds. Sweet... Thanks! Can't even exchange it for one that I can actually enjoy. Zavvi for the Win!!
This is definitely a classic - after first watching it pre-adolescence the movie retains it's originality and freshness even after having watched it a million times since. Would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a good movie experience.
Akira is one of the legendary Animes. If you are an Anime fan, this movie must be on your must have list. It's a great story, with brilliant drawings and strong characters.
Better than I heard, the story comes with a lot of subtle elements. Akira is for people with a bit of psychology experience a masterpiece. Animation as good as anything you can get nowadays.
