    Default live action AKIRA...

    would you want to see it made or no? what would you want out of a live action akira? what would fuck it up? i almost feel like "chronicle" is an akira adaptation. that flick was decent.

    No and definitely not some bullshit, whitewashed American remake. There's nothing a live action adaptation could do that would trump the anime or the manga.

    nah its pointless. only thing that would be worthwhile is doing it as an anime series where they flesh out the story from the original manga.
