In what is surprisingly our first anime film, we cover perhaps the most famous of them all in Katsuhiro Otomo's Akira. Does this 32 year old animated feature measure up to today's standards of pyrotechnic visual marvel? Does it deserve it's rank among anime and cinema in general? What circumstances allowed a movie like this to get made? We dig into it all and more in this deep, fast paced exchange. (Akira is currently streaming on Hulu.)
