"Many would have me hung for placing Akira 5th on the list but, imho, Akira is as good a the GITS franchise but it may take 2 or 3 viewings to fully appreciate it. Another brain melter if intoxicated!"
"Yet another consistantly good series, funny at times, definately worth a look. Hot women in cool mech suits blowing stuff up, can't really go wrong can you?! NOTE: Avoid the original OVA at all costs!"
