    I actually bought the Street Fighter Alpha DVD.
    It's rather dark.. but not as dark a akira.
    or as that video game on ps2 Onimusha warlords

    Guy Richie pisses me off, I think Snatch was a great movie. I think he's a good director and all but I wanna qoute Tricky, "Guy Richie is posh pretending to be street."

    Girls suck.

    cool feature on the akira double: the ability to translate graffiti in the background by pressing a button while the scene's playing.

    :eek: TETSUO

    My boyfriend ordered the dvd off amazon.com and it finally came last friday. I'd never seen it before and he has, so almost the whole movie was spent with me saying:

    "is that Akira?"
    Him: No you'll see."
    Me: "Is THAT one Akira?"
    Me: "How about that one?"
    Him: "Just shush, you'll see soon enough."
    Me: "did Tetsuo change INTO Akira?"
    Him "just be quiet and watch the movie"

    So I finally shut up and watched it and I really enjoyed it. I did find it mildly confusing in parts, but it generally made sense. I really liked the animation.

    you are beautiful, just not on the inside
