    NOTE: All text is in Japanese - Volume 1 - 1st printing. Story and art by Katsuhiro Otomo. Akira is a bold and breathtaking epic of potent narrative strength and astonishing illustrative skill. Akira is set in the post-apocalypse Neo-Tokyo of 2019, a vast metropolis built on the ashes of a Tokyo annihilated by an apocalyptic blast of unknown power that triggered World War III. The lives of two streetwise teenage friends, Tetsuo and Kaneda, change forever when dormant paranormal abilities begin to waken in Tetsuo, who becomes a target for a shadowy government operation, a group that will stop at nothing to prevent another catastrophe like that which leveled Tokyo. And at the core of their motivation is a raw, all-consuming fear: a fear of someone - or something - of unthinkably monstrous power known only as...Akira! Softcover, 306 pages, B&W. NOTE: These are Japanese manga-style GNs and are meant to be read right-to-left.
