While that is awesome, I know you could have fit a "Kaneda" in there.

Tetsuo: AKIRA!

Akira: TETSUO!

It's just not the same. Sad

And here I was thinking that Spongiforma squarepantsii was the weirdest media-related thing in science.

Let's just hope that those galaxies are less intense than the characters they are named after.

Don't forget the Sonic Hedgehog gene, as well as the protein that inhibits it, Robotnikinin.

It seems that Akira and Tetsuo will be feuding with one another for many light years.

You forgot to mention Macross Chasma and Argo Chasma on Pluto's moon Charon, which were named after the SDF1 Macross (Space Fortress Macross/Robotech) and Argo/Yamato (Space Battleship Yamato/Star Blazers). Both ships visited Pluto in their respective series.

Maybe we can get them to name a crater after Setsuna Meioh (Sailor Pluto)?
