Akira is one of the best known, most critically acclaimed manga series of all time. Katsuhiro Otomo is acknowledged worldwide as one of animation's most talented directors. Hardcover, 8-in x in. Welcome to 21st-century neo-Tokyo, a vast metropolis built on the ashes of a Tokyo annihilated by an apocalyptic blast of unknown origin 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 agency who will stop at nothing to prevent another catastrophe like that which leveled Tokyo.
At the core of their motivation is a raw, all-consuming fear of an unthinkable, monstrous power known only as Akira. One of the crown jewels of graphic fiction, Katsuhiro Otomo's stunning science-fiction tour-de-force is a bold and breathtaking epic of potent narrative strength and astonishing illustrative skill. Regarded by many as the finest work of graphic fiction ever produced, Akira stands alongside the great science-fiction novels and films and is the inspiration for Otomo's brilliant Akira film, an internationally acclaimed classic of animation. This is a script-style book of the first three issues of Akira.
It features both English and Japanese text. This is a must have for any true Akira fan!

The opposition is plotting violent revolution. The government lives in fear of the mysterious person called Akira. We also get to meet one of the most unsympathetic protagonists of all times. Kaneda starts of as the biggest jerk you will ever meet but grows from there. Yet, while Kaneda may be a thug —Tetsuo is the real monster in this story.
His art is an interesting mix between realism and classic manga. The way Otomo gets you to flow from one panel to another is just awesome.

The Task of Manga Translation: Akira in the West
Who is the strange boy and why do the anti-government rebels want to get their hands on him? What is Akira and how is it related to the destruction of Tokyo? It also helped build Otomos career as a film director and screenwriter. And it all started in Akira: Volume 1! Young Thugs, Terrorist Girls and Kids with Scary Powers Kaneda and the rest of the gang are back at their reform school for juvenile delinquents —and speculate about what happened to Tetsuo.
Taking offence, lead terrorist Ryu knocks Kaneda out and tells his contact Kei to run for it.
Akira Vol 1 20
The boy, Takashi, is an esper who uses his psychic powers when Kaneda threatens him. The experiment gives Tetsuo supernatural power but also unhinges his mind. Want to find out what happens next? Read Akira: Volume 1 to find out! We see futuristic Japan that has survived WW3 at the cost of its social order. Everything is ready to explode in a grand, glorious orgy of violence and chaos! Otomo goes deep into the themes of corruption, greed for power and social isolation. Just like a river going down a hill.
Happy reading folks.
