What the community says about Akira (Vol. 1)
- "Why are you reading this review when you could be reading the most amazing sci-fi dramatic manga the 1980s produced? The date shouldn't bother you a second. The art stands up to time and the story is without par. Action, intrigue, and flying motorcycles in a Tokyo destroyed too soon for Godzilla to wreck. I fell in love with this story as an anime, and the manga only makes it more fascinating."
- " I've never been a great consumer of comics or manga, only the absolute classics have gotten my attention, but the fantastic artwork and narrative flow of Otomo's masterpiece was enthralling. Being a manga, and not an especially wordy one, I tore through this whole 300+ page volume in under an hour, then turned around and immediately ordered the other volumes. The ideas and themes Otomo tackles in this series are famously complex and thought provoking, but they never become overpowering or discouraging due to the thorough depiction of a wonderful setting. The world these characters live in is vibrant and every bit as interesting as its cyberpunk/sci-fi mashup of a plot. "
