Bartkira
« on: July 07, 2015, 10:39:11 pm »
For the last couple of years I've been following this weird fan community composed of a load of different artists who have taken it upon themselves to remake the Manga/Anime of Akira using the Simpsons characters.

For the most part they have stuck to pretty beautiful recreations of entire pages from the manga but now that they have built up enough submissions someone has remade the old trailer from back in the day

I haven't been a fan of the Simpsons in a very long time, but something about this project just seems so strange and beautiful to me.

I've been following the tag over on Tumblr, there are years worth of submissions, some amazingly detailed so check it out if you are that way inclined.

This is amazing! Thank you for sharing this. I've missed this place.  :wink:

I thought they were insane when they completely finished remaking the whole of volume 1 (like 300 pages), and now they have expanded into video.

And WB, its good to have you, place has been far too quiet.

I wish it had subs, but it looks pretty amazing anyway.

Aww thanks Faust, we'll be trying to shake things up in Base Camp for a few I suppose. ROUSE THE NATIVES, BURN THE TOAST, DRINK TEA! that sort of rabble. It's an internet safari, because it's all new to me now.

I have seen snippets of this here and there, it is delightful.

You know, I just got back in and said to myself, "Astonish me PD! Show me wonders!" Like it was the djinn from Wishmaster.  :eek: Wish granted! That was amazing and I think I just found my next profile pic. Thanks!

So a friend of mine is apparently a proud owner of the comics and the trailer is about to make her day. Again with the thanks Faust!

I saw this a little while ago, it's pretty cool. I'm not the biggest Simpson's fan, but Akira is on my top ten best sci-fi stories three times.

It also has one of the best soundtracks ever.
