Funimation To Release Limited Edition Kaneda Jacket From ‘Akira’!

Funimation has announced that they’ll be releasing an exclusive limited edition Akira Kaneda leather jacket. The badass looking jacket was designed by Carlo Levy, Alessandro Trombetta, and Stefan Henzgen, and based on one of the best stories in manga history by Katsuhiro Otomo.

Here’s what Carlo Levy, Managing Director of DYBEX S.A. had to say:

I have been a fan of AKIRA since 1989 when Epic Comics first released it, and imports arrived in Europe. I always dreamed of having a replica of the iconic jacket and was surprised it hadn’t been created by anyone outside of Japan yet, so I did what any super fan would do…I went after the license and had our team design it!

And here’s what Mitchel Berger, Senior Vice President of Global Commerce at Funimation Global Group, had to say:

Some fans of AKIRA have been waiting a lifetime to wear this authentic and iconic jacket, and Funimation is proud to be able to make fan dreams come true. This special edition item reminds anime fans that you can enjoy the anime lifestyle beyond just on screens, and Funimation Shop is the premier destination for must-have anime merchandise.

As a big fan of Akira, who owns the complete manga boxset and film, I need the jacket. My biggest nitpick about the jacket is that it does not have the pill or the quote “Good For Health, Bad For Education,” but I understand because it’ll promote drug use. Other than that, the jacket is badass!

The jacket will be going for $450.00 and it’ll go on sale starting July 13th!
