Fan Made Akira Tribute (Video)
One of the most iconic Anime movies of all times is Akira hands down. Of course everyone has their favorites that influenced them or that first got them into anime, but there is no denying the influence that the 1988 cyber punk anime has had on the industry. Not only is Akira one of the most influential anime movies of all time but it is definitely one of my favorites as well. I think I speak for most of us when I say that Kaneda’s red motorcycle is one of the best and most recognizable things in the entire anime.
This epic “tribute trailer” comes from artist Brad Kremer and his buddy Dean. This project took many years of modeling, “re-edits and re-renders” before it was finally complete. As a fan of this short film I have to say that it was definitely worth the wait. The true star of this tribute is the iconic red bike that we all at some point in our lives wished we owned. It’s definitely one of a kind and and as Brad Kemer said on his Vimeo page,”The Akira bike is one of those iconic symbols that still remains relevant today similar to the Millennium Falcon or Marty McFly’s beat up DeLorean.”
So check out the amazing Akira tribue trailer below titled Akira 28 and let me know what you think Nerd Nation. Did you enjoy this fan made short film and do you agree that Kaneda’s red motorcycle from Akira is as iconic as the Back To The Future DeLorean or the Millennium Falcon?
