Is the Akira manga worth reading? Despite its legacy in the medium, I feel like I hear fairly mixed responses when it comes to actually going through the content. I'm umming and ahing over whether to pick up the 35th Anniversary box set for £90.

I enjoyed the film, for what that's worth.

It's definitely worth reading. The movie skips plenty of details and some characters that appear briefly actually have a role in the manga.

If it was me I'd read a few pages of the scans before dropping £90+ on a manga though.

I watched it sometime last year and thought it was brilliant.

Also, Winry :wub: Edward is a moron for not wifing her up

Watched the last stretch of Evangelion episodes last night for the first time.

That sure was something. I'm not sure what.
