Releases of the Week: Akira celebrates its 25th Birthday


Let's give our best wishes to the Birthday Boy

Brad is still in Ireland as we speak, so I'll be covering Releases of the Week for him today. While there aren't that many new titles coming out this week, people can look forward to the return of Akira! This time around, FUNimation is including both dubs of the film, along with a bunch of neat extras that will make any Akira fan explode! Best of all, the movie arrives just in time for its 25th Anniversary-- Happy Birthday, Akira!

To those who are more interested in reading things, Fullmetal Alchemist gets another omnibus volume, and Vertical releases a helpful book that teaches people how to make sushi in the comfort of their own home. Come to think of it, all of this talk about food is making me hungry right now. If anything, I'll have to add Sushi Simplicity to my list of things to buy. 

At the end of the day, there are a few notable things within this small roster of new releases. If you're planning on buying any of the items from the list, be sure to let us know in the comments!
