As I've told people before with how things are now, keep physical copies of media that you really enjoy and don't rely of streaming services because before you know it you'll only be able to get edited versions of the movies and music that you loved.
hm too bad the 4k isn't on here Frown

Looks like Vudu only offers the English dub. Not sure which dub (1988 or 2001), though I suspect it is the newer.

Itunes has both subbed and dubbed, offered separately of course, at higher prices ... and Itunes has them listed under TV Shows for some reason.

I was surprised by that as well. Usually, the UHD digital offering coincides with the 4K disc releases, which was a year and a half ago for Akira. Neither Vudu nor Itunes has the 4K stream.

I'll bite for $4. I owned the Blu Ray and recently got rid of all my physical media, so this is a great cheap add to the digital collection. Pretty sure I'm up to 700 movies and 40 TV series at this point!

After buying two movie tickets from Fandango you can earn $5 VUDU credit. Even works w/ the AMC Theatres A-List.

Just claim any movie on VIP Plus and the code works for any movie on VUDU.

https://www.fandango.com/vip-plus

Although it might be a waste to use it on this one since it's only $3.99.

I own the 4K that was recently released on disc and it looks incredible.
I can't do dubbed I need to listen to this movie in the original language with subtitles sorry.
If this was Japanese with subtitles I would definitely bite for $5, well worth it.

The Blu Ray 25th Anniversary has the 1988 Original English Dialog for those that need it and don't want to waste their money searching for it.
