by Classic Speedyon February 24, 2009
I’ll never forget the first time I saw the 1988 animated feature film Akira. It was Saturday morning on the Sci-Fi Channel, back in the ’90s when that was their timeslot for Japanese anime. While I had somewhat enjoyed my samplings of anime to that point, Akira really impressed and intrigued me. Here was a […]
