For the last couple years, hundreds of fans have been putting together Bartkira, a meticulous, page-by-page recreation of the legendary manga Akira. Almost every page is redrawn by a different artist, with only one ironclad rule: Replace all of the characters with those from The Simpsons. Everyone from Springfield plays a part -- Bart is Kaneda, Milhouse is Tetsuo, and little Ralph Wiggum is Akira himself.
Though the massive project has yet to be completed, you can get started reading here. Or you could just watch this incredible Bartkira remake of Akira's theatrical trailer.
The attention to detail is so intense, rivaling that of the manga project. It's really best watched side-by-side with the original trailer, or you can just watch it here:
It's best not to ask why. Just hit replay.
