Love Berserk. Still waiting for the final chapters!!
Waiting for the next cool toy to drop is still way less painful than waiting for the latest hiatus to end.
The first part of a multi-hour long deep dive into Otomo's process of creating the masterpiece Akira!
Seeing as Fireball was such a hit and generated a ton of interesting discussion in this thread, here's the follow-up episode which focuses on Domu!
I will have to take a gander. In some ways I much prefer Domu to Akira. The story is not as convoluted, and I love the setting of the housing complex. I read Domu before Akira so maybe nostalgia has something to do with it, but Domu has an atmosphere of dread that Akira lacks. It also has a more positive ending and I find the characters and their motivations realistic and believable.
I had no idea that Del Toro was pursuing the film development rights to Domu until I watched this thing.. that would be a fantastic piece of cinema if it ever comes to fruition. The video is a good little recap with some interesting interpretations by these three established comic book artists.. not quite as in-depth as I thought it was going to be.
