Details

Regarded by many as a landmark production for Japan, Akira's critical acclaim and box office success paved the way for the growth of anime culture across the world. 2030 Neo-Tokyo, which has sprung from the ruins of World War III, is experiencing a prolonged period of civil unrest. When Tetsuo, a young biker with telekinetic powers, is abducted by the military and used as an unwitting guinea pig for top-secret experiments, it falls to his best friend Kaneda to rescue him before it’s too late. A phenomenal achievement in animation that has rightly become a classic of Japanese cinema.
