A guaranteed original Japanese 'B2' movie poster from 1987 for Katsuhiro Otomo's animated post-apocalyptic classic "AKIRA", based on Otomo's own manga series.
Originally serialised in "Weekly Young Magazine", Otomo's self drawn and written manga is set in a futuristic Tokyo, two decades after a mysterious explosion destroyed the city.
Converting his own world on to the big screen, the movie tells of biker-gang leader Shotaro Kaneda whose friend develops dangerous telekinetic abilities.
This hugely influential movie laid the ground for the explosion of manga, anime and Japanese popular culture amongst Western youth. A giant of a film that is as good a watch now, as it was over thirty years ago.
This superb poster is from the original Japanese release of the movie. It has never been folded and only shows minor signs of handling and rolling on the left hand edge (please see our photos). It will frame and display fantastically. A real collector's piece for the manga or anime fan.
We only sell guaranteed original movie posters. We do not sell reproductions.
Note: This poster is priced unframed. Photos showing framed and 'in room' images are for illustration only. Please check our hi-res images and the sizing information shown above.
