Akira Video Shows Fan Creating Impressive Stop Motion Action Sequence


Recommended Posts

A new TikTok video shows an Akira fan create a stunning stop motion animated action sequence from the comfort of his very own home. Since its release in 1988, the animated Japanese post-apocalyptic cyberpunk action film, Akira, has continued to grow its fan base and thrill new generations of anime fans. The film, directed by Katsuhiro Otomo and based on Otomo's 1982 manga of the same name, tells the story of a psychopathic biker gang member who threatens the existence of neo-Tokyo and the group of former friends and colleagues who attempt to stop him.

The film remains so popular that a live-action remake has reportedly been in the beginning stages of production since as early as 2002. Before accepting an offer to return to the MCU with Thor: Love and Thunder, Taika Waititi was the frontrunner to direct the project for Warner Bros. Although the live-action Akira remake is back in limbo until Waititi's schedule opens up, fans of the film remain optimistic that eventually, they will see their favorite characters return to the big screen.

In a recent TikTok video, Kenta Shinohara, a stop motion animator, created his very own Akira action sequence, which has gone on to amass more than 1.3 million views. The sequence features Kenada, Akira's main character, in his signature red biker outfit driving his iconic high-tech motorcycle and skidding to a stop along the creator's hardwood floor. The quick action sequence ends on a humorous note with Kenada clutching his stomach and entering a bathroom before slowly closing the door behind him. The video also offers a behind-the-scenes look at how Kenta meticulously constructs and films his stop motion animations.

While the base animation work Kenta does is impressive by itself, his creativity when it comes to recreating special effects from the film is even more notable. Working with an almost non-existent budget, Kenta appears to use cheap cotton balls to create the motorcycle's smoke trails. He also appears to use a small colored penlight with a slow camera shutter speed to create the electricity effects seen in the actual film.

Stop motion animation has largely been replaced by CGI as the dominant form of animation in modern film, but Kenta's body of work suggests that there may still be room for stop motion work in cinema. With 1.2 million followers on his TikTok and over 15.2 million likes across all of his videos, there does seem to still be a healthy fan base for stop motion animation. Considering Kenta made his Akira video from home in his pajamas with basically no budget, it begs the question: what kind of film could Kenta achieve with a real budget and voice actors and a studio? With the live-action remake still up in the air, Akira fans should definitely check out Kenta's work if they're looking to take a quick trip back into neo-Tokyo.
