The anime film that invaded the West

Anime hit the mainstream with Akira, whose influence can be seen in Hollywood fare such as The Matrix and The Dark Knight. The post-apocalyptic movie, set in a futuristic Tokyo, sees Kanesa lead a biker gang whilst struggling to contain Tetsuo whose psychic powers are causing all kinds of bother. Many have emulated it but none have come close to topping the masterpiece that is Akira.
