One of two volumes collecting Otomo's entire storyboards for his seminal animated feature film Akira.

It also includes some sketches and character concept designs.

Text in Japanese.

The movie version "AKIRA" released in theaters in 1988. This anime was directed and written by Katsuhiro Otomo, the original author, and gained worldwide acclaim. This book is the first volume of a total of two volumes of a huge amount of storyboards drawn by Otomo himself at the time of its production.

It was once published in two separate volumes by the editorial department of Young Magazine in 1988. However, it is a rare item that has been a premier product for a long time since it was out of print in a short period of time. The long-awaited reprint of the first and first distribution titles of "Katsuhiro Otomo Complete Works".

Storyboards are often thought of as rough blueprints, but the precision of the storyboards in this book is different. The elaborateness and the dynamic feeling of the character are as good as the main story of the manga.

This book is the first half A / B part of all 4 parts consisting of A, B, C and D.

Otomo, Katsuhiro
