Akira – Off to the Containment Unit 1
2019 – the year the story of Akira takes place. To honour this “grandfather” of mangas and animes, the one film that in the USA and in Europe drew the attention to Japanese comic culture, which was – until then (1988) – derided as simple entertainment for children, I decided to build a new Akira MOC.
This one differs a bit from the anime, which is also a bit different from the manga. I did this to match my former Akira MOC or more specifically, the custom Tetsuo minifigure. In this scene, Tetsuo tries to find Akira’s containment unit and gets attacked.
Dedicated to Denis Franke. I hope you are well, wherever you are.
