Katsuhiro Otomo’s Manga for Akira was impressive, and when they rolled out the Akira Anime it totally changed the way the world viewed Anime in general and Japanese Science Fiction in particular. Several years ago some folks in Hollywood bought the rights to turn it into a live action movie, but so far haven’t done so. Now the fans over at The Akira Project have made their own crowd funded live action trailer, and it looks amazing. If the official Hollywood version ever gets made, I hope it looks half this good. Thanks to the folks at Japanator for the heads-up on this one.
