Good for Health, Bad for Your Wallet


?In honor of the manga’s 30th anniversary, Bandai Japan is making a $900, official-as-hell Kaneda jacket from Akira. As you can see, it’s gorgeous, stunningly accurate, is made from “oil-softened cowhide leather” and even comes up to XXXL in Japanese sizes, so it may actually fit some American nerds. All you need to do is figure out how to pre-order it from Bandai’s LalaBit Market here, and have $900 you can blow on a piece of truly awesome nerd merchandise. On the other hand, you can spend a fraction on that money on psychedelic drugs, and then have a very different but no less authentic Akira experience. Your call. Thanks to Jacob R. for the tip.
