Japan 1988
Dir Katsuhiro Otomo
With the voices of Mitsuo Iwata, Nozomu Sasaki, Mami Koyama
English subtitles
Certificate 15

Katsuhiro Otomo’s seminal anime – a striking, hyperkinetic adaptation of his own manga – almost single-handedly introduced the genre to audiences outside of Japan. In 2019, in a dazzling Neo-Tokyo, cyber-punk bikers cruise the Blade Runner-esque streets and do battle with military scientists and a telekinetic child. Impeccably detailed with fluid, jaw-dropping action, Akira remains a stunning cinematic achievement.
