Funimation to Sell Limited Edition of Akira’s Iconic Red Leather Jacket

Remember the iconic red jacket worn by Keneda in the 1998 classic anime film Akira? Wish you could get one? Well, geeks, wish no more, because Funimation will soon be selling a limited edition version of the jacket for $450. If you’re wondering why the jacket does have the pill emblem on the back, it’s because it’s based on the “manga” version of AKIRA drawn by Katsuhiro Otomo, not the animated one.

Authentic to the original manga series and anime film of the same name from the legendary Katsuhiro Otomo, this take on the iconic jacket was designed by Carlo Levy (Managing Director of DYBEX S.A.), Alessandro Tombetta (Designer) and Stefan Henzgen (MD of Van Doornum GmbH & Co.).

But you want to know how to get one, don’t you? The premium leather jacket arrives on The Funimation Shop on July 13 for $450. And you’ll want to move fast, because only 300 of these stellar jackets are available in North America.

Yep, you’ve read that correctly: there will only be 300 available for sale, so if you really want one, be sure to visit the Funimation Shop on July 13!
