Akira rubbish? That movie defines Japanese animation. Anyone who thinks the movie Akira is rubbish must be all of 16 years old and thinks Dragonball Z is good anime. Comical indeed. To think you knock Akira and perhaps have never seen a Miyazake film. You are a far cry from an anime authority. If it weren't for Akira and Miyazake films half of the anime you like today wouldn't exist or would be 1/2 as brilliant visually. Akira and Miyazake's films inspired your favorite movies and series today. What you are saying is the equivillent of saying you like Heavy Metal but you think Black Sabbath and Ozzy are rubbish. You just sound silly!
