Akira (1988)

Ash and Steven are both sorely behind in their film education. Ash is a fanfiction writer and afficionado, Steven is an aspiring comedian and general purpose nerd and both are seeking to fill in the gaps in their essential viewing experiences, and sharing that 'new viewer' experience in Why Haven't I Seen This?, a movie review and discussion podcast for movie nerds and essentials-deficient alike!

Ash and Steven saw Akira this week. In addition to discussing that, they also discussed smoke and flame, subs and dubs, bad voice overs, Hal Emmerich, irrational body designs, the death penalty lol, South Park, Harry Potter some more and the essential sadness of Tetsuo.
