This book is the second volume out of two, of a huge amount of storyboards drawn by Otomo himself during the production process of the anime version of AKIRA. Originally published also as two separate volumes by the editorial department of Young Magazine in 1988, both volumes AKIRA E-KONTE 1 (アキラ 絵コンテ集 1) and AKIRA E-KONTE 2 (アキラ 絵コンテ集 2) have been out of print for a long time and are difficult to obtain these days.
Divided in four parts A, B C and D, This volume 22 of OTOMO THE COMPLETE WORKS collects the parts C and D of the storyboards of the animation film AKIRA as well as new elements such as previously unpublished cuts and commentary pages by Otomo himself.
