Japanese anime fans just had a collective orgasm.

According to Variety, southern California’s Pioneer Entertainment (USA) is spending $1 million to restore the popular Japanese anime classic Akira. The company is prepping the cult favorite for a big-screen theatrical re-release this spring, which will be followed by a release of the first ever DVD version, as well as a new VHS edition, later in the 4th quarter of 2001.

There’s currently no word on the special features on the DVD, but the restoration will include a new English dub from the original Japanese script, as well as high-definition mastering and a Dolby Digital AC3 Surround Sound soundtrack.
