AKIRA DVD Special Edition



I just received a superb edition of AKIRA on DVD, the 1989 anime film directed by Katsuhiro Otomo. This japanese gorgeous box set includes the film with English and Japanese audio tracks and English subtitles, a second disc with plenty of bonus material and a 800 page book with the complete storyboard of the film drawn by Otomo himself. This edition is out of stock but you can always check out the Amazon Japan Marketplace.

Some of the videos included in the bonus disc, explain the processes called Quick Action Recording, a technic used during production to check the animation.
