Finally, the picks of the week. AceCaseOR says “Akira is my pick of the week. It is an excellent anime film, with positively stunning visuals. I’d say that it’s a movie everyone needs to see at least once. They don’t have to like it, they just need to watch it at least once.” Fiziko says, “the original French Connection edges out Akira, but only just.” Expect a few more Blu-Ray choices in the coming weeks, due to the kinds of new DVD releases we see this time of year.
