Akira: the anime full of anti-nuclear imagery
I go to a lot of conventions and I see so much Akira merchandise. Eventually I had to re-watch the anime because I hadn’t seen it since I was a small child.
Without watching super analytically, I noticed a lot of anti-war imagery. While this may not be a surprise, I feel that we may be glossing over some deep messages hidden within rhetoric and symbolism.
It deserves a deep analysis.
