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

O: KINEDA

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?"

Him:"no"

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.

I've been told that if you read the comics it makes much more sense. I just don't have that much time though.

yeah ive read some of them

 

..i understand the idea.. im just thinking in terms of ..

 

how theyre speaking of japan... what cultural ideals. it conveys.. what gets misconstrued do to cultural incongruences and nuances..

 

i mean.. there are things in japanese culture that just dont exist in american culture..

 

in this movie theres alot of things.. in terms of mythos that contradict or just plain.. arent the normal.. asian.. archetypes.. its just.. an incredible movie.
