Joe Peacock vividly remembers the first time he saw “Akira,” the influential sci-fi anime film that turns 30 this month.

It was “a random Thursday night” in 1990. Peacock was a young teen; his father drove him to a screening of the film at the University of Georgia, where it was being shown in Japanese.
