1986 Otomo interrupted his work on the manga AKIRA to create the anime.
In opposite to the manga (beginning of the story in 2030) movie action starts in 2019, 31 years after Worldwar III.
To hold the high standard of the manga, the Akira Comittee was founded. First showing was 16. july 1988.
The script is shortened, but story and characters are harmonious, although some are cut. Such as Akira, Miyako or Joker, who play a bigger part in the comic.
The film concentrates more on the relationship between Tetsuo and Kaneda than the manga.
Just after the premiere of the movie Epic Marvel, the transfer of the manga from eastern to western art started.
