The manga that began it all - now available for a new generation! 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.
