Awaken Akira was created by three friends, Ash Thorp, Pilotpriest, and Zaoeyo, who wanted to collaborate on a tribute to the iconic anime, Akira, by Katsuhiro Otomo.
Endless amounts of hours were poured into Awaken Akira, and it took us a full year of working intermittently in our spare time to create the tribute. We did our best to replicate the original art and honor the masterful work of Otomo.
