This week, I watched an anime film for the first time. It was vastly different than expected. Upon reflecting on the practices of auto-ethnography, the experience of live-tweeting the screening and my own cultural framework I was able to realise the vast influence Akira has had on pop culture everywhere.
I must admit, I came into this movie-viewing with zero expectations. But, after watching Forensic Files on small hotel TVs for the last 3 weeks I was dying for a good movie. And boy did I get one.
