    Some reviews are saying the DVD is 1.78:1, others are saying 1.85:1. I know it's not a huge difference, but I was just wondering which one was correct.

    Also, is the DTS version coming out 12/3 gonna be 1 or 2 discs?

    Both 1.78:1 and 1.85:1 are correct. 1.85:1 simply mattes a little bit more of the image.

    I saw the film on Encore Action last night, which is the new restored edition and it looked normal.

    Akira will be a single disc release containing Japanese DTS 5.1 and English DD 5.1.

    That's it...

    Actually, 1.85:1 is the preferred form by the director, BUT

    Akira was simulatneously designed and drawn for 2.20:1 70mm. If you check out the production report, and from the cells and backgrounds I have personally seen they were all 2.20:1
