Bandai Entertainment's panel at Comic-Con International on Friday included the announcement that the company would reissue Katsuhiro Otomo's 1988 classic Akira on DVD. The film's most recent U.S. reissue was as a Blu-ray Disc in February 2008, coinciding with the film's Japanese debut in the same format. Akira's most recent reissue on DVD in the U.S. was in 2004 under the "Geneon Signature Series" heading.
Bandai made no mention in the panel about whether or not anything would be updated for the new DVD release.
In June, Akira was reissued in the U.K. by Manga Entertainment on DVD, Blu-ray Disc and as a limited cinema release. This edition was based on the American Bandai Entertainment/Kodansha master.
