It's strange reading an article in which both the interviewer and the interviewee like Gwen Stefani.  I don't, so I'm having trouble continuing, especially when one of them doesn't like how one of Stefani's videos uses Harujuku girls as a sort of fetishistic, random add-on , but still makes a point of saying she likes her. At least it wasn't geisha.

I'm not sure what a big production company could possibly do with Akira.  Their heads might explode.  I'm not sure I buy her arguments for why there shouldn't be a live action Akira, but I guess it just means I would come up with ten of my own. 

I'm hoping this remake thing sorta dies and we get back to at least stealing stories and trying to do something new with them, instead of stealing names of stories and trying to use those names to sell whatever the project happens to actually be.
