Revised translation and new lettering

The Akira 35th Anniversary set is the definitive way to read Akira, reproducing the art at better quality than any previous version. It also retains the original right-to-left reading format and Katsuhiro Otomo’s original hand-drawn sound effects for the first time and features a newly-revised translation to get as close as possible to the originally-intended reading experience.

Top-quality design and production

New dust jackets, interior covers, and all-color endpapers take the look of the Akira manga back to the designs supervised by Katsuhiro Otomo for the Japanese market in the 1980s and 1990s – another first for an English-language edition. The box itself features a dual-hinge, magnetized door for a lasting, dramatic presentation.
