"Akira" is one of the most popular anime series from Japan. The anime was first aired in 1980 and then was turned into a movie that was released in theaters in North America. Since the OVA" Akira the Movie: Ninja Scroll", the first part of the series was released on DVD," Akira" will get an online release. You can see this in "Anime News Network".
"Akira" is a popular series of anime movies based on a Japanese comic. While the original "Akira" is widely known as his masterpiece, he has also directed, in some form or another, three other anime movies since Akira exploded on Japanese movie screens in the 1980s. He is well known for his unique style of storytelling, which mixes comedy with mystery and action. His movies have won many awards throughout the world. One of his most successful movies is "Akira".
The original "Akira" movie is set in 2032, in the city of Edo. In the film, a Japanese gangster named "The Red Samurai" is hired by the U.S. military to protect them during World War II. After being betrayed by his own superior, the samurai is given orders to attack his superiors and is then framed for the crime.
"Akira the Movie: Legend of the Galactic Heroes" is a prequel to the original anime, which is set six years before the film. The story is very similar to the one in "Akira the Movie: Ninja Scroll", where Akira finds himself on a mission from the United States government. His only weapon is a sword, which he uses to fight off evil creatures called "Zombies".
The other two "Akira" films from the series are "Akira the Animation", a TV series, and "Akira the Movie: Tenmaouji". The series was actually not meant to continue after the original series was cancelled, but fans kept wanting for more, so a new movie was made.
"Akira" online movie releases are also available for fans who are unable to attend the theaters, or can't watch it in their homes. You can find the movie's online, which have the English subtitles, but the Japanese audio are usually provided in another language. It's a good thing that "Akira" is available on DVD, because the English version may not be the best, especially if you don't speak the language!
