Akira

Choimhead mi am film Anime, Akira (1988), a-rithist aig an deireadh sheachdain. Còmhla ri Blade Runner (1982), tha Akira air làrach mhòr fhàgail air coltas saibeir-punc mar nòs ficsein-saidheans. Is fhada bhon a chunnaic mi mu dheireadh e, agus tha mi a’ smaoineachadh nach eil mo bheachd air atharrachadh cus.  Ged a chanainn, a thaobh coltais, gu bheil Akira buileach àlainn, a thaobh sgeulachd, ’s e tubaist thrèana a th’ ann. Tha am film buileach gun rian. Mar eisimpleir, leugh an còmhradh seo eadar Kaneda agus Kei agus Kei a’ feuchainn ri brìgh an sgeòil a mhìneachadh do Kaneda:

KANEDA: What the hell is this “Akira” thing you keep talking about?

KEI: Ryu told me about it once. He said that Akira is absolute energy.

KANEDA: Absolute energy?

KEI: Humans do all kinds of things during their lifetime, right? Discovering things, building things… Things like houses, motorcycles, bridges, cities, and rockets… All that knowledge and energy… Where do you suppose it comes from? Humans were like monkeys once, right? And before that, like reptiles and fish. And before that, plankton and amoebas. Even creatures like those have incredible energy inside them. Because of genes, I guess. And even before that, maybe there were genes in the water and air. Even in space dust, too, I bet. If that’s true, what memories are hidden in it? The beginning of the universe, maybe. Or maybe even before that.

KANEDA: Hey, what’s the matter? Are you okay? Did you get hit on the head back there?

KEI: Maybe everyone has those memories. What if there were some mistake and the progression went wrong, and something like an amoeba were given power like a human’s?

KANEDA: That’s what Akira is?

KEI: Amoebas don’t build houses and bridges. They just devour all the food around them.

KANEDA: That’s what Tetsuo’s doing? You’re saying he has that kind of energy?!

An do thuig sibh sin? Cha do thuig na mi fhìn. Chan e ficsean-saidheans a tha sin ach seòrsa mablais nua-linneach. Is dòcha gu bheil an còmhradh a’ dèanamh barrachd ciall anns an t-Seapanais thùsaich, ach chan eil cus rian air a’ chòrr dhen sgeulachd nas motha. Ach ann an dòigh, chan eil sin gu diofar. Choimhead mi an dreach ùr ath-mhaighstirichte aig an deireadh sheachdain agus chòrd e rium glan. Tha e dìreach riochdail agus chan eil an sgeulachd chraicte a’ dèanamh gu cus diofar dhan tlachd a fhuair mi às. Mholainn gu mòr e air an alt sin a-mhàin.
