Akira Overcast Version by deadlymike Akira Overcast Version by deadlymike
I did up two versions - Daylight and Overcast. I'm curious to know what your guys prefer?

This is the first ever Anime I saw. I remember walking into Rogers Video in Grade 7 and seeing this crazy cover of Kaneda holding this massive weapon and his bike. I had to grab it just from the cover alone. I have to admit, the violence was hard to take in at that age but I was immediately desensitized after watching it a few hundred times!

Tetsuo and Guts ugh!

Enjoy!

the overcast version is better. i think it think the neutrals go with kaneada's posture. also this captures a the calm atmosphere after the chaos as shown in his posture.

Really. I'm not surprised. It's americanized. You know Will Smith is playing Old Boy right? We'll see how that turns out.

yea whenever they make americanized versions theyre always bad. i read that like leonardo dicaprio of all people is going to direct it or produce it or something and zac efron is supposed to be kaneda (although with an americanized name) and its supposed to be in like neo new york instead of neo tokyo. so yea it sounds like a huuuge disappointment :(
i read that a while back about old boy. it was incredibly sad to hear that. i own the movie myself on dvd and every time i imagine will smith in that role it makes me shudder. he already butchered the roles he played in i am legend and i robot so now he'll probably ruin old boy too
