Fairy Tail Collection 8 Blu-ray/DVD

Akira Collector’s Case Blu-ray/DVD

This item includes a premium Collector’s Case, Blu-ray and DVD, and a 32 page full-color booklet for the true Akira fan.

Akira isn’t just a movie – it’s the genesis of a genre. Katsuhiro Otomo’s landmark cyberpunk classic obliterated the boundaries of feature-length animation and forced the world to look into the future. Without Kaneda and Tetsuo, without espers and psionic assassins, without that iconic motorcycle – our world would be a far less exciting place to exist.

Special Features: Akira Sound Clip (1988), Director Interview, Storyboard Collection, The Writing on the Wall, Original Trailers, Original Commercials, Restoring Akira, Glossary, U.S. Trailer (2013), and Trailers.
