Fanboy.
Otaku.
Nerd.
Ñoño.
Geek.
Freak.

Todos. Ninguno. “Fan” a secas si hay que elegir alguno. En la generación que me tocó vivir todos esos términos eran parte del ghetto en el que estábamos (¿seguimos?) acorralados. En una época actual donde la palabra “normalización” es taboo, ¿por qué tenemos que enorgullecernos de estas aberrantes etiquetas? Ya forman parte de la antropología del aficionado a la cultura pop. Suscribirse a ellas es perpetuar el estigma.

En un press kit para Kodansha, Katsuhiro Otomo compartió las influencias que le dieron forma y fondo a Akira, su magnum opus:

“I have no intention of expressing my political views or philosophical opinions. I’ve said this often before, but one of my influences as I made Akira was Tetsujin 28-go. This was a manga series meant for kids, with numbers applied to the cast of characters, and I wanted to make an homage to this series. I also wanted to depict the later Showa period (postwar Japan), including preparations for the Olympics, rapid economic growth, and the student unrest of the 1960s. I wanted to recreate the assorted elements that built this era and craft an exciting story that would seem believable enough in reality.

Looking at the world now, I wonder how it wound up like this. Looking at issues like wars/conflicts and organized crime, I can feel the world slowly fall out of balance, and I hope we can improve on that. Basically, though, Akira was heavily influenced by the manga I read as a child, and it portrays this kind of brilliant force that you see in people around the world in their younger, purer years. That’s the simple theme preached by Akira; it’s a tragedy depicting people destroying the world’s balance amid this era that I wanted to recreate.”
