I can't promise that this is any good, but I would like to share with you my first fanfic. It's an AU-ish take on Tetsuo's self-destructive inclinations and his relationship with Kaori. I love Akira and don't want this community to die...
There is simply not enough fan serivce out there, which is unfortunate, because Akira is truly a beautiful piece of work.
A strong influence for my writing was:

I was born into this
Everything turns to shit
The boy that you loved is the man that you fear
Pray until your number,
Asleep from all your pain,
Your apple has been rotting
Tomorrow's turned up dead
I have it all and I have no choice but to
I'll make everyone pay and you will see
You can kill yourself now
Because you're dead
In my mind
The boy that you loved is the monster you fear
Peel off all those eyes and crawl into the dark,
You've poisoned all of your children to camouflage your scars
Pray unto the splinters, pray unto your fear
Pray your life was just a dream
The cut that never heals
Pray now baby, pray your life was just a dream
(I am so tangled in my sins that I cannot escape)
Pinch the head off, collapse me like a weed
Someone had to go this far

Marilyn Manson----Man that you Fear

[Rating] R

[Summary] Neo-Tokyo is tired of its delinquent youth. Twenty-six vocational school kids, including Kaneda and his friends, are chosen to play a new game... it's a fight to the death, and only one will survive.

Screencap request
Hey -

After a morning of Googling, I've come to the conclusion I can't make screencaps on my computer. Is there anyone on here who can and if so would they be willing to make a few screencaps for me? I need a picture of the non-named people in Kaneda's gang and the three girls who hang round them. Just thought I'd ask.

Hi. I live. Thanks to the lovely people who have joined this com and helped keep it alive while I just... dropped off from the face of the Earth. It was nice rotating around but you can only be a universal drifter for long, so I came back and decided to probe Live Journal around a bit. Being the nice weirdo I am, I come back not-empty handed:

The other day, I tried to rekindle my Akira interest after wrestling around with canon in other fandoms, realizing how easily I can write it as I have been worshipping the damn fandom since, I don't know, when I was 15? Jr. Highish? (I forgot the UK equivalent, sorry). I remember starting up a free-for-all drabbles revival topic at another forum and so I wrote some things to help revive the deadness that happened in my absence there too.

In short, I wrote several Akira drabbles. One is a series of three that is probably corn and cheese, another for a triple-contest being held at the Harukiya Bar and another I did while feeling down. The last two are also corn and cheese but I like them a little more since I have been trying to write the rustiness off (haven't written anything serious after Nanowrimo).

Drabbles are excellent rusty-writing killers since you don't have to dwell on getting from Point A to Point B as you already are writing the delicious bits. So, I think I'll kick this post off with the Sunrise Trilogy:

(Forgive me of any errors. I don't have Word on this laptop and I had to get a friend to edit and wordcount these for me. The last one I am especially worried about as no one checked it for me and I had to rely on my shoddy judgement. Blah blah. End whines here.)

OverpassCollapse )

Pack AnimalsCollapse )

OpenCollapse )

And now, the last two. These take place during manga-verse, and one deals with Tetsuo, another with Kaori. They kind of compliment each other:

Staring at the WallCollapse )

The GullsCollapse )

Phew, okay, I'm done. Like I did with the Megaman Legends fandom, I might create an Akira drabbles thing for myself on FF.net since after taking a break from the fandom, I haven't seen too many things added. Boo hoo!

(Just wait until FF.net creates a policy against drabbles. Jeezus.)

On a random note, anyone remember when I was a borderline purple prose writer? Tallulah? Keet?

Tetsuo pics
Anyone know where I can find good grossy pics of Tetsuo? The only stuff I have is Dark Horse volume 5. Screenshots from the film are good too :D I just joined MySpace and I want to scare all of my little sister's friends with a mutated Tetsuo-themed MySpace XD

Another a question:
Is that for real or are they just messing with me? And why a pinball game?!

Tetsuo Sighting
Guess what I saw today?!

Okies, so my mom was driving me home from school today. We were on the freeway when I spotted a black sports car. The sport car's license plate said Testuo! I said, "OMG, it's Testuo!!!" and my mom looked at me weird and said, "Who's Tetsuo?" and I said, "Just somebody." My mom doesn't know anything about AKIRA, heheh... Then my mom sped up until we were adjacent to the sports car. The driver was a dark-haired Asian talking on a cellphone. I waved at the driver and he saw me and waved back X3

That made my day :O

Probably sick of me.
You are a rebel! You fight the man at every turn,
and always belive you are right! So what if you
break the law and kill a few fuzz? They had it

What is your AKIRA(manga) political alignment?
brought to you by Quizilla

Okay, this was my favorite result on the quiz, and probably no one will get it, so I filled out the answers so I would get it. I thought the pic was funny! If it doesn't show then I will kill Quizilla. >:( I redid the images, so maybe they'll work now. they don't look quite as clear though.

A QUIZ! What is your AKIRA Political Alignment?
I made an AKIRA quiz! It's not that great, but take it anyway. I'm sorry if all of you get the same thing, but maybe that is good.

Steam Boy DA Club

I know this is a bit off-topic, but it is Katsuhiro Otomo related :3

I just made a Steamboy club on deviantART in celebration of the US release next Friday. We need members!

Not Really Tetuso Sprite
I found this on a Japanese game site. I'm not sure if it's supposed to be Tetsuo or not, but it's the coolest game sprite I have ever seen.

Stuff from last night...
Last night, we watched the first dub with my aunt!

She thought it was quite funny.

A lot of funny things happened, also. Like how me and my best friend played along with the music in the ending credits, him on the Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots, and me with a hard wad of gum in a glass Sobe tea bottle. My aunt said "...You guys are the strangest band...". It was quite fun! ^_^

Furthermore, I think my aunt has a crush on Kai... Dear, god... Oh, well, Kai needs all the fans he can get. He's just so funny and likeable!

In closing, there was this:

*Yelling across her yard*

That's our new password thingy! ^_^

So that was the night! It was all very fun!

Glad that her aunt is so awesome, Katie

Because I had to show here up eventually...
Hello, all! A lot of you might already know me, what with me being part of the friendly local bike gang that hangs out over at theharukiya, but I'm introducing myself anyway! So hi! ^_^

I'm Katie. As a joke, I answer to Atagamay, because I once said discuss instead of disgust. *Giggles like a schoolchild* ...Get it? Yeah... Moving on...

My favorite character is Tetsuo. I like him a lot. He's funny and complex and blows things up and I feel bad for him. That's reason enough for me! My second favorites are the four Ks (Kai, Kei, Kaneda, Kaori). But two of those Ks (Kai, Kaori) might just be 1 1/2 favorites. Akira and Takashi are cool, also. Akira is super duper smart and is the most level-headed character. Takashi knows when not to get involved. Plus they're both cute in their own way! ^_^ From the manga, I like Chiyoko, Sakaki, and Lady Miyako. They're a smart, no-nonsense bunch...

As far as characters I'm similar to, I'm a Tetsuo/Kai/Kaori mix. Yes, I'm all kinds for weird. You see, I'm a pushover who just snaps after a while, I'm almost comically excitable, and I'm tragicly spacey. Or maybe I'm just like a walking Akira character. I'm weird, I wear odd-looking clothing and a lot of jackets, my hair sticks up in a most bizzare fashion (the best way I can describe it is that it's sort of like Kaori hair, only crazily wavy. And It's always dyed some random color), I'm rather highly strung, I want to drive a Vespa scooter instead of a car, and I have a lot of odd twitches. Sounds Akira-ish to me! My life has been tragicly Tetsuo-like. I was a lonely kid on whom a lot of tests were done. So yeah.

I think the manga is better than the movie. I liked getting to see Kaori and Tetsuo interact more.

Did I mention that Kaori/Tetsuo is one of my favorite ever pairings? well, it is!

My best friend and aunt are into Akira, too. Me and my best friend got into it at the same time (though I became more obsessed...), and I got my aunt into it just a while back. She's currently reading the manga. She has the same approach to Akira that I do. Meaning she likes the manga better, has a good sense of humor about it, and feels bad for Tetsuo.

Anime and manga I likeCollapse )

I heard that this community centers a lot around fanworks. I don't really do such things myself (I don't think I'd be that good at it...), but I will gladly look at other people's awesome drawings and such! ^_^

Um... *Tries to think of more to say* Oh, yeah! Who else here is excited for Steamboy? I know I am! ^o^

Well, I guess that's all from me for today! Yeah, I'm rambly...

Final Fantasy Tactics Advance
Akira references are everywhere. I mean, who has not seen a giant 'slody sphere, reminiscent of when the little tot destroyed Neo-Tokyo, and thought: oh man, that is SO taken from Akira. Or maybe it's just me (but come on, one look at Trigun, you can tell it's a ripoff, man).

And since I have far too much time on my hands, well, have been playing Final Fantasy Tactics Advance on emulator (sshhhh!), and found that some of their attacks are very, very similar to our lovely fandom. And then, seeing as I'm a complete loser and slave to the great and merciful Lord Tetsuo, I capped it all and animated for you to see. Of course, if you're playing this game and don't really want spoilers, don't look.

The final boss attack, AlphaCollapse )

I'll go animate the nu mou totema later; that one's even more eerily Akiran, with a whole Sol-like object in the sky firing down, and causing another big bang.

Okay, finished animating 'Ultima', folks.

the Nu Mou totemaCollapse )
