Designed by Carlo Levy (Managing Director of DYBEX S.A), Alessandro Trombetta (Designer), and Stefan Henzgen (MD of Van Doornum GmbH & Co.) and based on the wildly popular manga by world-famous Katsuhiro Otomo, the premium leather jacket worn by the lead character Kaneda arrives at Funimation’s online e-commerce shop, Funimation Shop, beginning Tuesday, July 13.
Under Levy’s supervision, the legendary jacket has been years in the making and designed with AKIRA superfans in mind. It is one of the few AKIRA products that captures all the details described in the original manga. The carefully and thoughtfully designed piece combines the best of apparel and anime to create an authentic replica for the most passionate of fans. The jacket comes in sizes small, medium, and large. There are only 300 units available in North America, priced at $450.00 USD each.
AKIRA and anime have enjoyed a ravenous fan base, including celebrity superfans Lupe Fiasco, Michael B. Jordan, Kanye West, and Quentin Tarantino as fans. Now, more than 30 years after its release, AKIRA remains one of the most popular and influential anime films and mangas to date. [via Funimation]
