2019. The world is on the brink of absolute destruction. Tokyo shimmers with tech-noir fetishism, gangs of cyberpunk bikers cruise the sprawl of the post-atomic city and rioting crowds surge under the neon-topped buildings looming a thousand stories into the sky.
Now, old gods return to do battle with Akira and something more than comic books ultraviolence is unleashed...
Prepare to enter this astonishing nightmare of hyper-reality created by one of the world's leading animation directors, Otomo Katsuhiro.
