Giant Akira Calendar Goes On Sale in Tokyo, New York

Giant Akira Calendar Goes On Sale in Tokyo, New YorkDo you like Katsuhiro Otomo’s classic Akira, often forget what day it is and have a lot of wall space?

If so, this giant calendar may be for you.

Modeled after the Akira mural on display in Shibuya, Tokyo (which we showcased in a video a few months back), it is, as you can see from the promo shot, quite a bit bigger than your average calendar.

The Akira calendar is also ultra-limited: it’ll only be on sale in Tokyo for one day, October 8, at Gallery X by Parco. It goes for a cool 13,000 yen (a little over $100)—but hey, it comes with a free pin badge.

The calendar will also be on sale in New York, at Brooklyn’s Hypefest from October 6 to 7. Buyers there will get a sticker rather than a pin badge.

I wonder if there are any Akira fans out there crazy enough to go for both just for the extras…
