About 3,5-4 volumes out of 6 was left out of the movie, if this gets the proper treatment with an actual budget that would make it plausible to bring the manga to life we could be witnessing the most ambitous project to date.

Or we just get another Berserk 2016/2017 which hade the same story but had such an overuse of not only cgi but bad cgi at that.

Its studio Sunrise we're talking about, there's no way we gonna get Berserk level of bad here. The production will be at least solid.

I'm so hyped for this! As you can guess from my nickname here I'm a big fan of akira! I really really love the manga, but the movie was disappointing for me. Don't get me wrong it got some good points. The animation is perfect, the voice acting is also amazing BUT they left out a lot from the manga and they changed so much stuff of the story from the original work at some point and not for the better. (It was to a point that all ny friend that didn't read the manga prior watching it didn't really get the movie) So yesss please!

I'm a little late to the party.
Nevertheless, I loved the original movie and will read the Manga because even though the movie was (and still is) a masterpiece artwise, it rushed really hard while trying to compress the whole story into a 2h animated version.
Needless to say that I'm hyped for this adaptation xD

God, I wish Sunrise just to give us some information about it...
My wish is a 6 episodes OVA (each one adapting a manga volume) with an Unicorn/Thunderbolt-like animation (even more detailed, actually, Akira deserves it) and soundtrack performed by Geinoh Yamashirogumi.
I just can't stop thinking about how it will be and, honestly, I have a lot of fears with it going to be some CGI trash and a horrible adaptation as a whole.
Ffs, Sunrise, just... tell us what it will be.

Fun fact of the multi thousand page manga, the movie showed a few hundred pages and of those few hundred there were plenty of changed objects. Example in the manga more than 300 pages involve a living akira.

I only watched it cause movies have higher budget and I like animation, the story is very meh from start to end, I don't think a better adaptation would do it for me.

Definitely a pass.
I would highly suggest reading the manga if you can, the animation barely relates to the manga

Yes.

>Studio Sunrise

Y A S S

That means at least the production value is going to be amazing (since Sunrise has been stellar in mechas and sci fi through the years). I am hype, but I hope is at least 24+ episodes.

Well, it's not the first remake of some old iconic title and we are all prepared for something bad. Waiting for something great though

I hope there’s no modern moe art style.

I still think the original anime film will be better than this TV anime.

Yeah me too, but i don't think they would go out of their way and change the artstyle of the original. To me, the original still holds up.

Extremely excited, not seen as much hype as I expected!

If this is a full adaptation I can't wait!

it's not possible to make the story worse than the movie, however the movie's art and animation is beautiful. that will be guaranteed to be worse.

So when is this supposed to released?

Anime was it's best 20000 years ago, when cavemen drew art with real depth.
Modern anime is all garbage. I miss great old days of anime.

I hope the backgrounds will be hand painted and that they will try to make it look like the 1988 movie as much as possible. I also hope that they won't use a lot of digital effects and cgi. Sadly that probably won't happen.

Watch the movie, it's one of the most influential science fiction movies ever. Also the TV show will probably be nowhere near as good as the movie in terms of the visuals.

I just finished the movie and was somewhat disappointed so I'm interested to see how they improve it all in the anime. Here's hoping that they have the quality of animation lol

I wish i could buy into the Akira hype but as a Tetsujin 28 fan it rubs me the wrong way. I get he was inspired and trying to pay homage to Yokoyama but like copying all the character's names is not the way to go TT
