With Goku/Biden using plot armour to win the Tournament of Power/Democratic Primary, we're turning our heads away from childish things and becoming men, by talking about the greatest anime film in history.
Akira: what happens when a 1980's dystopian anime manages to perfectly portray contemporary 21st-century Western existence. We're breaking out our discussion on Akira into two parts, with Part 1 focusing on the greater socio-political trends within the film, which shape the narrative of Tetsuo and Kaneda that we'll be discussing in more depth next episode. For now it's all military coups, astro-turfed death cults, and why neo-liberal governments need to fund psychic kindergartens.
