Akira

We watched a recording of Akira. I found this example of Japanese Anime technically amazing, but disappointing in other ways. I have been unable to decide if my disappointment with the movie's plot was due to cultural differences, my lack of familiarity with the norms of the Anime genre, or simply overreach by the movies creators in trying to tell too expansive a story.

Either way, for someone new to Anime this movie will probably be a mixed bag. To those that are into the genre, you really shouldn't care what an outsider like me thinks. On my scale of 1-100, I rate it a 68.
