Akira is a very refreshing/interesting movie. The plot is cutting edge back in it’s day. So is its merchandise - it is one of the rare BD releases with 192 kHz audio.
The Japanese call this the Hypersonic effect, and in my opinion the audio track is really really good.
I cannot remember if my version is RAW or TrueHD, but if it’s the latter, it’s also the only movie I like with this codec. Personally I am never impressed by TrueHD and always prefer the clarity I can get from DTS HD Master. Unfortunately with the new 3D audio thing it looks like Dolby has won . But I digress, let’s go back to topic of this post.
As I was saying - futuristic. Everything about Akira is always on the cutting edge. So when I was in Hong Kong earlier this year, I snapped up 30th anniversary CD immediately.
Imagine my surprise when I read the liner notes!
