Chronicle or Akira????
« on: February 06, 2012, 12:12:54 AM »
I watched Chronicle today. It was so similar to Akira it was like wtf. They mirrored scenes almost exactly. I will try to scratch up pictures and proof soon. But has anyone else seen this or noticed this? One scene is where the kid who goes mad with power is in bandages, and the other kid stands over him. I can't explain it well but input is requested, and appreciated. I don't know if this was a tribute, a ripoff, or influenced. On the same subject I heard that they are making a live action Akira set in New York... Input on that as well would be appreciated.

The Akira remake is never going to happen, they keep picking up the ball and dropping it over and over again.

Having said that, Akira takes on Chronicle ten times out of ten because it's Akira.

I am actually one who doesn't like Akira. (sorry if this changes your thoughts on me) Some people say AKIRA is the best anime to be ever created!!!!! I thought it was boring and had a so-so story. Chronicle reminds me of Push.

I enjoy Akira, was interested in Chronicle when I saw trailers. I'll see it eventually. I like stories where things spiral out of control, and the paranormal aspects are a plus. I'll keep Akira in mind when I watch it.

As much as Akira remake will probably never come out, Im glad that Leo bought the rights to it, he'd handle it the best out of anyone I suppose.

Nah, I've known for years that you don't care for Akira. That's fine by me. I was always fascinated by the scenery, it's just so captivating.
