Bartkira is a weird project. Weird but awesome. Simply put, it's a community art project squishing The Simpsons and Akira into one thing, recreating the entirety of the Akira manga with Simpsons characters.
The anime had been left untouched. Until now.
Now a team of artists and animators have taken Bartkira to the next level, creating a trailer for the manga. It's animated. It moves. It has voice acting. It's glorious.
It takes the pure genius of the Bartkira project — the pitch perfect casting of Simpsons characters in the Akira univese — and places it brilliantly within the unique animation style of Akira itself. That's the real achievement of this trailer: it feels exactly like Akira. The explosions, the cuts, the movement of the characters — it's all so brilliantly done.
You have to watch this.
