Hot Holiday 2017 Geek Gift Deal: Akira 35th Anniversary Box Set

The new Akira 35th Anniversary Box Set is on sale.

The new Akira 35th Anniversary Box Set will be released on Halloween. Amazon has this great looking anime box set on sale for $107.99, which is 40% off the regular price, ahead of the release.

This is an all-new, complete 35th anniversary hardcover box set of one of the most acclaimed and influential comics of all time, with the original Japanese art and right-to-left reading format for the first time! The science fiction epic that changed anime and manga forever is presented in six beautiful hardcover volumes, plus the hardcover Akira Club art book and an exclusive patch with the iconic pill design.

In 1982, Kodansha published the first chapter of Akira, a dystopian saga set in Neo-Tokyo, a city recovering from thermonuclear attack where the streets have been ceded to motorcycle gangs and the rich and powerful run dangerous experiments on destructive, supernatural powers that they cannot control. In 1988, the manga was adapted into what was at the time the most expensive animated film ever made, which brought Akira's influence out of the manga world and onto the global stage. Today, it remains a touchstone for artists, writers, filmmakers, and fans, retaining all the brutal impact and narrative intensity it had when Otomo first unleashed it onto the world. Find out more on amazon.com.

The Blu-ray DVD combo of the Akira movie is on sale for $17.99. Aikira is rumored since years to be turned into a live action movie. Earlier this months, Ragnarok director Taika Waititi said that he has been approached about directing a live-action Akira movie. He plans to base the movie on the Manga and not the anime. When the new Akira movie will be hitting cinemas is unknown.
