Yeah, I said the same thing 2 weeks ago when I was suddenly like "Ya know, I should get Akira on blu..."

Hopefully I'll luck into it at a sub-$30 price, but i'm not banking on it. If the UK disc wasn't Region B locked...

Well they did say Bandai, but wasn't sure which Bandai put the disc out. I assumed it was Bandai USA since we're in the USA.

That is how I ended up at this thread. "Hmmm, I should get Akira on Blu-Ray".

Still, I have it on VHS and on DVD, and I like the English Dub on the VHS more than the Pioneer DVD. I wonder what they have for the Blu-Ray.

Not sure why this wasn't brought up, but Funimation has acquired the Akira license. I swear though, this movie's license gets passed around like a hooker with herpes.

there's no doubt they would. this is something i expected for some time, considering how many bandai properties have been bought up by the company and released on blu-ray in recent years. the hellsing and lain releases alone screamed "TEETSUUUUUOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!" louder than anything i've ever heard.

what's important: will FUNimation keep the 192 khz audio? because Akira is a staggering audio experience on BD.

I just hope they release it with the Streamline dub so I can retire my LD/VHS/custom BD of it.

Why would you want that dub? It was terrible.

I have a passion for old Streamline dubs, especially that one.
