Awesome Akira in HD! This is such a perfect title for Xbox Live Marketplace, I am sure you;ll get tons of people who will impulse buy this. Good to see that anime is expanding into the virtual world very nicely.

I've never seen any anime in HD, but I think I would love it.

I wonder what they mean by "Akira in HD"? Has anyone seen anything on the web about this?

Have to wonder which studio is doing the HD render of this...

Back when the special cleaned up LD release was done for Akira here in the US, it was an awesome task, I just wonder what else they can do now for re-releasing Akira in HD...

It's odd that ADV was the first anime company announced, and yet we don't have anything solid from them. Hey, maybe 6/12 is the magic date. Regardless, now that a third company has joined the fray, maybe the floodgates of digital distribution will open.
