Akira : Anime Music Video with Metallica singing No Leaf Clover

This Akira Anime music video syncs very well with No Leaf Clover by Metallica. Akira is old skool anime for sure, but it was such a great Anime film it has brought the industry a long way when it was originally released back in 1988. Many well known critics label Akira as ‘the best anime film ever made.’ The setting is in post-apocalyptic Tokyo in 2019.

If you have not seen the full film of Akira, I would suggest you rent of buy a copy today. Either way you will love it! (This will also prepare you for the Akira 2009 Hollywood Blockbuster, with Leonardo DiCaprio.)


Originally the Akira film was based on an Manga series, but later was modified slightly for the big screen. Akira also led the way for a huge spike in popularity in Anime in the United States in the early 90′s. A few things different about this anime film was one, it had super-fluid motion with over 160,000 animation cells and two, the American voice overs were complete before the movie left production.
