The image model for the character Akira was Shōryū from Saiyūki (1960). Otomo liked his sorrowful expression and used him as a reference after deciding to make Akira a child.  While editing his film Jiyū wo Warera ni, Otomo would often hear someone in the studio next door yell "Akira!", which he took to be the name of the assistant director. Because in the film industry the name "Akira" is often used to refer to Akira Kurosawa, Otomo "thought that gap" was funny and decided to use the name in his work one day.  The character names Tetsuo and Kaneda, and the Espers' codenames of Nos. 25–28, were taken from Tetsujin 28-go.    Kaneda's iconic motorcycle from the manga had no specific design. So Otomo said it came out "kind of random" and changed every time he drew it.  The character Chiyoko was originally designed to be an old man, but Otomo felt that was too ordinary and "a little boring" and came up with the idea for an old lady, which then became a large old lady. The character grew on him as he drew and she ended up with a greater role than he originally planned.

Otomo is likely taking it easy these days, working only on projects he’s very interested in. I would definitely love to see him take on a new manga, even if it’s only a small project.

Retrieved September 24, 2021.In summary, this is a worthy box set to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the manga, and a fantastic upgrade for Otomo Katsuhiro’s magnum opus, and I would highly recommend it to any fan of the manga or anime. I only wish Kodansha Japan had released a Japanese edition of this, because I still prefer to read the comic in its original language.
