The AFA Podcast EPISODE 100: AKIRA

The AFA Podcast is back with our long-awaited 100th episode! For this special episode we wanted to do something different and asked our Twitter followers to vote on which film we would discuss.

The winner was Katsuhiro Otomo's classic AKIRA .. which celebrates its 30th anniversary this year. The team- this time joined by AFA writer and artist Ali Cat Harris- discuss our individual experiences with the film and take a look at what makes it such an important part of anime (and film) history.

This episode contains some strong language and spoilers (for a 30 year old film). Support us on Patreon to unlock an extended version of this episode (2:18 approx).
