If Harry Potter Was an ’80s Anime

Published by at 9:00 am under Books,Videos

I sort of love this video from Nacho Punch, which transforms Harry Potter from book series/sort of good film series into a much-improved 1980s anime in the style of Akira and others like it.

The format fits the crazy story surprisingly well, and I love the wand mega-explosions that have to accompany any anime from that era.

I love Akira, but I need to get back on the horse and get through Cowboy Bebop and Ghost in the Shell. Anime is not my strong suit, but I need to beef up my nerd cred in that department.

    Ah, remember when TV animation was mostly just characters standing around blinking? Good times.
