In honor of Canada Day, a video about Akira.

Because “Canada” sounds like “Kaneda”

Today is Canada day. And since “Canada” sounds kind of, sort of like “Kaneda,” the hero of Otomo Katsuhiro’s groundbreaking cyberpunk manga-turned-anime Akira, that’s reason enough for me to put on my favorite red jacket and talk about one of his favorite pieces of media ever… Japanese, Canadian, or otherwise.
