Dissecting Akira's Animations

Dive deeper into the brilliant animations of Akira.

The CSP channel on YouTube has shared an amazing in-depth video discussing the work that went into creating the brilliant animations of Akira. This 40-minute special animation video essay will let you dive into the technical and creative aspects of 1988's anime masterpiece.

The video shows that the animators behind the project didn't just choose the easy way and decided to do everything in a hardcore manner. The author, for example, noticed that they could use still shots for some sequences and you wouldn't even notice, but the Akira team added dynamics with every frame.
