I've just finished watching Akira on Blu-ray, the movie looked great but I was slightly unimpressed by the new sound mix, it sounded good but I didn't think it was as amazing as I'd read in a few places online, it's funny but in some ways the movie looks rather dated now ( such as character design and animation ) but in other's it still holds up rather well.

While Akira looked and sounded great on Blu-ray I don't know that I'd be rushing out to buy it any time soon, the disc just seemed overpriced for what it was, it is the best looking version of the movie I've seen but I'd advise waiting for a price reduction or until it's on sale somewhere before picking up this version of the movie.
