About Akira Manga Volume 1

Akira volume 1 features story and art by Katsuhiro Otomo.

Welcome to Neo-Tokyo, built on the ashes of a Tokyo annihilated by a blast of unknown origin that triggered World War III. The lives of two streetwise teenage friends, Tetsuo and Kaneda, change forever when paranormal abilities begin to waken in Tetsuo, making him a target for a shadowy agency that will stop at nothing to prevent another catastrophe like the one that leveled Tokyo. At the core of the agency's motivation is a raw, all-consuming fear of an unthinkable, monstrous power known only as Akira.

This edition includes a new foreword from the author and a postscript from Dark Horse publisher Mike Richardson!

Akira!

by

I saw yu yu hakkusho, then dragon ball, then Dragonball z, then there was some other show that must of been pretty terrible, but when i saw Akira, life changed. I realized the anime was not some stupid cartoon for kids. it became art in a cyberpunk futuristic world with a memorizing story of adventure with everything you would want from a good book in a movie. I think Akira is this reason i like anime and manga to start with. If u like psyren or anything with super-powered children, this is for you.

Read the manga that was adapted into the landmark anime film!

If you have only seen the movie before, there's more things in the source material that the movie omitted.
