One of the best-known examples of contemporary Japanese animation, this cyberpunk adventure takes place in the post-apocalyptic city of Neo-Tokyo. A teen-age boy is exposed to a mysterious energy source and develops telekinetic powers that place him at the center of a conflict that may destroy the world. Based on Otomo’s graphic novels of the same name, Akira paved the way for a wave of anime fandom worldwide, and combined spectacular animation with a moving and surprisingly personal story.
