    A Film of this Significance Deserved Better, Stick with the Blu-ray

    by -

    Akira as a film is an absolute classic. This release, however, has multiple issues.

    1) It lacks HDR (Funimation currently has a disc replacement program for this)
    2) There is excessive DNR removing much of the image detail.
    3) The packaging mentions that it includes a digital code. It doesn't.
    4) Several audio mixes have the rear channels mixed too high.

    ehhh

    This movie is amazing. But a few of these shots are remastered so poorly its hard to watch one scene transition to another. the shots in the underground sewer are the worst.

    This remastering feels a bit rushed

    They probably should have spent a little more time in QA. The remastering is inconsistent throughout the movie, and the DNR is a bit too heavy in some scenes. While the HDR does have the colors pop nicely, the Blu-ray actually looks better overall.
