Know of Akira through vague pop-culture references? Maybe you saw it so many times you stretched out the tape on your VHS copy? Either way, this is news for you!
FUNimation has announced that Akira will celebrate its 25th anniversary with a new DVD and Blu-ray release. This release will not only please purists, but fans of the dub as well. The film will feature the original Japanese audio, as well as both Pioneer and Streamline Pictures dubs. A trailer for the anniversary release can be viewed below.
This is how Akira was meant to be viewed, in HD to see all of its glory. I’m sure it will make your head e-x-p-l-o-d-e.
FUNimation has not confirmed a release date yet.
