For those who know about Japanese Animation, Akira is a classic and the motorcycle in the movie is iconic.

For those who do not, here is that iconic motorcycle.

The bike was so prominent that it was used on the covers of the VHS tapes and DVDs.

Someone in Japan used that design and applied it to a Tokyo Marui P90 TR.

It is different and looks like it fits in the futuristic cyber punk world.

        Akira….

    • Major Tom

      Dang, beat me to it.

    Been a long time since I’ve watched that movie. It was pretty good. Plus that scene where the riot cop just lays guy with a tear gas launcher from about four feet away is hilarious.

  • BattleshipGrey

    I’m torn on this one. I love the movie and the bike, but theming a gun to the bike isn’t translating well in my head. The gun doesn’t look bad, I just don’t get it I guess. I’d understand theming a bike this way. TIA(merica) though so good job pursuing happiness.

      It’s airsoft

      • Roy G Bunting

        The only way I’d do something like that to a gun is if it was airsoft.

        So 10/10 good choice of host, would buy.

          Screw that noise, if I wanna flashy, I want it to be real.

          • LCON

            You should see the Anime themes they paint on the side of Some of there heavy military hardware.

  • Anonymoose

    10/10 would shoot Clowns with.

  • John

    Looks similar to the assault rifles/laser cannons that Kaneda uses in the film too.

    • Anonymoose

      Only much, much tinier.

    Awesome, artist did a good job. I’ve always wanted that bike.

  • Pete M. – TFB Writer

    I have no idea what’s going on here, but I’m kinda diggin it.

    • Major Tom

      Akira is one of THE most iconic Japanese films animated or live action ever made.

      It also gets pretty out there. I still need to see it in full.

  • Ease up guys no sense getting angry over an anime gun post or any post for that matter.

      I doubt he got angry, I mean, he upvoted my “insult” to him.

  • Anomanom

    Its an itasha gun. I don’t know how to feel about this.

  • Mystick

    There are some UGLY guns out there…

  • LCON

    Seriously…. Someone needs to build that bike for mass production.

  • Audie Bakerson

    Now I need to paint a race gun in Char colors.

    A Shoei AND an Arai decal?

  • Leigh Rich

    Hopefully that is not a real P-90. Japs can’t own real guns. I think it is rather ugly myself.

  • Stijn Van Damn

    What are gun laws in Japan about, how easy is it to get rifles and pistols and shoot em like in this video? Was this in Japan or elsewhere?

  • Anton_Zilwicki

    Ichidai!

  • Eric

    That’s news? Somebody painted an air soft gun and put stickers on it… Slow day?

  • BigFED

    RE; the video clip about the S&W M-61 field stripping!!! DON’T BOTHER!!! The gun is a piece of junk, about like a Jennings or Bryco, but not as good!!! If it stop working, toss it!

  • RickOAA .

    Akira, Ghost in the Shell, and the original Macross Saga are all Anime must see classics.

  • Arnold May II
