You know the coolest scene in the classic 1988 anime Akira? It’s when Kaneda slides his motorcycle to a halt. Haven’t you wanted to do that? Well, you’re not the only one!

Recently, a slew of homages have popped online in Japan; however, the GIFs are courtesy of Tumblr from a while back.

The dog, while not an homage per se, is the best.

Last fall, our colleagues at Kotaku Japan got to check out the “official” customised Kaneda bike and don an awesome leather jacket.
