About Akira Shirts
The raw whining roar of the motorcycle as it weaves through the streets of Neo Tokyo, the howl of psychic fury unleashed in the skies, and the cries of religious fanatics prophesying the end are all sound and fury belying the subtlety and human power of the story of "Akira." An "Akira" shirt displays one of the film's iconic images screen printed on cotton. Common options include the red and white pill logo from the back of Kaneda's jacket, the film's title in stylized blood-red kanji, and Kaneda's futuristic motorcycle of the same daring hue. A vintage "Akira" shirt is screen printed with these images and is available in both short and long sleeve options. They are an instant proclamation of membership in the underground of geek cinema and classic anime, showcasing the wearer's taste in film and knowledge of the bloody history of animation across the sea in Japan. You can find an "Akira" shirt along with a great deal of additional film memorabilia through the vast inventory of clothes and promotional textiles maintained on eBay.
