Synopsis

From master storyteller Katsuhiro Otomo, Japan’s foremost manga maestro, comes the epic work that introduced the West to the epic, stylised and sweeping artform that is manga — Akira!

This post-apocalyptic saga, set in the remains of Neo-Tokyo, charts the coming of the creature known only as Akira, a power both feared and prized for its potential to shake the recovering world. Caught in a power play between factions of a brutal military organisation, Kaneda — young, restless, committed to defying authority — and Ryu, the leader of an underground movement, are pulled into an escalating nightmare, built around a group of psychically powered children.
