BARTKIRA - This deserves its own thread

from 2014 to 2017 a number of artists from all over the world recreated the Manga Akira with characters from The Simpsons and called it “Bartkira”

and this wasn’t just some “ha ha look at this funny thing” oneshot…
they recreated all 6 volumes with 300-400 pages each

Bart is Kaneda, Millhouse is Tetsuo and Akira… well Ralph is Akira…

Didn't know this was finished!

Guess I'll DL and give it a read through!

It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone’s fault. If it was Us, what did that make Me? After all, I’m one of Us. I must be. I’ve certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them. We’re always one of Us. It’s Them that do bad things. - Jingo, Terry Pratchett

Yes, that does deserve its own thread. Yes, my mind is blown. No, I've never read the original Akira, but I'm still impressed.

I mean, jesus.

The whole damn thing?!

I'm only familiar with Akira by reputation, but goddamn.
I memorized "Holy Grail" really well
I can recite it right now and have you ROTFLOL
