Based on the multi-volume graphic novel by Otomo, Akira is a mythical, futuristic tale of post-holocaust Tokyo, where pill-popping biker kids begin to unearth a government project designed to exploit the psychic and telekinetic powers of a group of laboratory-bound children. Superbly animated, with a fantastic visual and narrative imagination, but you'd be well advised to know something of the plot before you see it.
