Update: On a related note, Comic Natalie posted a larger image of Evangelion character designer Yoshiyuki Sadamoto's illustration of Otomo's Akira manga and anime. One of the featured articles in this Anime Busience issue is "Cool Japan" and the 2020 Tokyo Olympics; Otomo famously held part of his Akira story in the stadium built for the 2020 Olympics in Neo-Tokyo.
