Live Twitter Stream for Akira (1988):

Watching #Akira (1988) by #KatsuhiroTomo Highly praised, but animation rarely thrills me.

Twitter Amazon

My attention drifts during anime. I've had to rewind #Akira 5x in 1st 30 mins so far. Lots of unfocused plot.

Twitter

Neat visuals in #Akira but it's all plot; character work is limited to drawings. What am I supposed to care about?

Twitter

Revolutions, gangs, riots, coups, mutants, powers: #Akira is stuffed full of sci-fi noise. Does it mean anything?

Twitter

Every time a character in #Akira explains what they want or think, I understand less about what's going on.

Twitter

The last half-hour of #Akira was very little nonsense drawn out to a grueling length.

Twitter

W/animation I'm supposed to be swept up by art & not care about plot, dialog or characters. It never happens. #Akira
