Let's overlook the Americanized Hollywood remake of Akira for the moment. Simply close your eyes and imagine seeing Katsuhiro Otomo's epic anime for the first time. Now open your eyes and take a look at some of the original storyboards.
Thanks to Blastr we have some of the storyboards to share below. They range from simple sketches to inked comic-book panels just waiting for color. Check out a sample of the 400-plus pages—and thousands of storyboards. Click HERE to see the rest of them.
What are your thoughts? Do these storyboards ease the pain of the Akira movie?
