The AniManga Podcast Episode 1, "Of Akira and My Little Pony"

Holy f**king sh*t!  What's this, you say?  A new episode? 

Correct good sir (or madame), like the phoenix Jammer's AniMovie Podcast has burst into flames and risen from the ashes to become...The AniManga Podcast.  As such, we will be starting anew...from episode one...again.

In this episode I have my ever-reliable co-host Dominic, and our regular guest Doctor from the SSAA Podcast.  What will be talking about, you ask?  Well if you can't tell from the title, we will be discussing the latest news from the upcoming Hollywood adaptation of Akira.  I can already tell from having heard it that our opinions may not be popular in the blogosphere or podcastosphere. 

As we go through our discussion we will be using this article from Cracked.com to help keep things focused, so follow along if you like.

Also, if you HATE our opinions, we'd like to know.  Hell, if you decide you hate it enough and would like to come on and tell us to our faces, we'd be happy to have a post-episode episode.  Just drop us a comment, and let us know.

I am on the same train of thought as you guys. Many of the people who are talking about this movie are thinking that the movie is being made for them. Instead it is about trying to make a buck and if Scott Pilgrim proved one thing then it was that you can't depend on geekdom to make a buck. If anything, if the buying record of most anime fans means anything then surely no buck will be made seeing how often they buy DVDs.

I was also wondering how many of today's anime fans have even seen Akira. I believe that a majority of the newer anime fans have never seen Akira and have only heard of it in passing. Personally I think have only seen like five minutes of Akira before changing the channel to watch something else. To tell the truth I don't have plans to watch Akira and most likely will watch this Akira movie before I even feel like watching the actual movie. A majority of the people talking about this movie and how it is being changed seems to be old anime fans who seen the original and were expecting this to be down to the dot the same.

Personally any attention Akira can get is good attention because it feels like as the time goes by, new anime fans are not going to bother with old animes such as Akira. This movie will either get new people to watch Akira. Either they are anime fans curious to see the original or regular people wondering what Akira was.
