Sick! Love the part where he uses his powers to warp lasers around him. First saw Akira when I was about 4-5, maybe 6 years old.

Wonderful. Am i the only who found the movie confusing sometimes?

That is because it is only a small part of the massive work that is the books. Even from the part we see in the movie a lot is missing. I think it took twenty years to finish the books.

Is the manga good? I hope it´s less unnecessarily
complicated and confusing than Evangelion.

It is really, really good.

It has no "what could this mean?" instead is rather straight forward about it's mysteries and stuff, primal at some of the later points.

No.  You are not the only one.  But, I have a return question for you:  Did the "out-of-control mutation" scene at the end make you feel physically ill?  It did that to me.

I'd recommend watching it again, so you do, but I wouldn't want you to come back and "Caps Lock" at me if it DOES negatively affect you - just didn't remember.

The manga is different, from what I have heard.

I don't really watch movies in general, really.  It's a rare occasion when I watch a movie.

Now, when you say "The Thing", do you mean the original, with Kurt Russell, or the prequel they made since that movie?  I've seen one or two clips from the original.  The effects are pretty good.  Gotta give a *hand* (or two) to the guy who tried to defibrillate the infected body.  A round of applause for him (he can't do it himself, when he has no hands anymore).

My viewpoint is:  Live-action and CGI movies have detailed and/or realistic gore and other aspects that would cause unease or make the viewer feel physically ill.  Anime and cartoon movies, however, have a harder time of doing that, because they need more artistic detail, plenty of line work, and mostly 2-D.  So, for me, if an anime or cartoon can make me feel that way, they're doing something right and/or well.

Okay, thanks for the clarification~  As I said, I've seen a few bits of the original, and I liked what I saw.

The first time I watched it, it gave me nightmares! I was about 7. Even to this day after hundreds of times of watching it, that mutation scene still gets me feeling queasy and creeped out.

It's kind of a "Schrodinger's Cat" scenario for me.  I really want to watch it again, because I genuinely love it - BUT - that was the first time fiction made me feel physically sick, which I don't like (phobia of vomiting). 

I hear the manga is different, quite a bit - according to some of the synopses on B&N's website, but I can't be certain until I've bought and read every one of them - which I plan on doing.

Hey, at least that giving someone nightmares or making them feel ill - that's normal and generally accepted.

I can't bring myself to watch Disney films anymore.
