I’ve gotten a few requests for Akira, but I’m like “Guy’s do you really think I’d leave out Akira? C’maaaaan.” :) Anyway the first round from the movie that probably got you into anime in the first place.

Kowloon Walled City | A population density nightmare
Kowloon Walled City was a largely ungoverned Chinese settlement in Kowloon, Hong Kong, comprising of 350 interconnected high-rise buildings where 33,000 residents lived within a plot measuring just 210 meter by 120 meter. Originally a Chinese military fort, the Walled City became an enclave after the New Territories were leased to Britain in 1898. Its population increased dramatically following the Japanese occupation of Hong Kong during World War II and reached a peak of 33,000 residents in 1987. When it was demolished in 1993-94, it was thought to be the most densely populated place on earth.

Nice Structure of the Day:
In the heart of Shanghai’s hustle-and-bustly Lujiazui financial district lies a circular elevated walkway that serves as a pedestrian overpass and an observational deck. For more bird’s eye views of the landmark, head over to Google Maps.
