Animation Akira Layout and Key Frames The Complete Work Vol.1 by Katsuhiro Otomo


A layout is a blueprint for creating an animated film, in which the necessary information is drawn for each of the scenes that make up the full-length animation. In addition to the original drawings and layouts of “Part A and the beginning of Part B” of the four parts A, B, C, and D that make up the entire film, this volume also includes valuable reproduction celluloid drawings of many famous scenes that were created based on these drawings.

The film version of “AKIRA” was created through a thorough process in which the “layout,” which depicts the backgrounds and character movements for each cut based on the art settings, was directed and revised by the animation director, art director, and even director Otomo himself. The sheer quality of the uncompromising screen production can be experienced by simply flipping through the pages, one by one, and from the scenes that move sequentially one by one.
