Akira, contender for most over-rated film of all time (up there with Blue Velvet), neverthess featured a kick ass motocycle. One for me, please.

Good for health.
Bad for education.

I agree on Akira: Good animation and soundtrack, but only mediocre story. It is interesting, though, as an example of the lingering influence of traditional Japanese Buddhist ideas on Japanese pop culture. (Akira's transformation has echoes of enlightenment/awakening as portrayed in "Nipponified" Buddhist sects such as Shugendo.)

By the way, the motorcycle pictures are not currently showing up on that site. Or have I just forgotten that the bike is invisible? :-)

That's funny... I can see the pics now. It could be there was a bandwidth issue earlier in the day?
