A monumental work that cannot be avoided when discussing the history of comics is finally back! Released in theaters in 1988, the animated film version of "AKIRA" went beyond the realm of manga and revolutionized even the world of animation. The anime was directed and written by Katsuhiro Otomo, the author of the original manga, and was produced under an exceptional production system, yet it is an extraordinary masterpiece that has gained worldwide acclaim. This book is the first volume of a two-volume compilation of the enormous amount of storyboards Otomo himself drew for the production of the anime version.
This rare item, which was published by Young Magazine in 1988 in two separate volumes but went out of print after a short period of time, has long been at a premium and is now finally being reprinted as the first volume of the first season of the Complete Works of Katsuhiro Otomo. This is the first time in more than 30 years that this item has been reprinted as a stand-alone product. Storyboards are often thought of as rough, unfinished blueprints, but the precision of the storyboards in this book is of a different order of magnitude. The author drew the storyboards around 1987, when he was interrupting the serialization of the manga version to produce the movie version of "Akira, " and was in the middle of the fifth volume of the book when he drew the storyboards.
The storyboards drawn with the tension of the period when the manga was being serialized are as detailed and the characters as dynamic as the manga itself. This book contains the first half of the four parts A and B, consisting of A, B, C, and D, and is a large volume of nearly 500 pages. The more you read this book, the more you will be able to experience the author's amazing animation production techniques. The title of the book, "Storyboards, " is the English word for storyboards.
