    • Tetsuo Shima, a member of a biker gang, is injured when his bike crashes with Takashi, a child Esper
    • Tetsuo gains psychic powers and uses them to prove himself to Shōtarō Kaneda, his friend and rival
    • A post-apocalyptic story about two close friends driven apart by a secret psychic government project
    In 1988, World War III happened. Tokyo was decimated by a mysterious black explosion, unmatched in magnitude. It is now 2019, 31 years later.

    Neo-Tokyo, hastily built on the post-apocalyptic ruins of old Tokyo, is a sprawling cityscape of neon extravaganza. It is a fusion of towering skyscrapers and cutting-edge technology that is permeated through and through with an explosive, hyper-violent cocktail of biker gangs, poverty, and revolutionaries.

    In this derelict metropolis live Tetsuo Shima and Shoutarou Kaneda, two bikers who are the best of friends and the fiercest of rivals, despite being affiliated with the same gang.

    Desperate to prove himself as Kaneda's equal, Tetsuo unwittingly pulls a stunt that culminates in the awakening of a cryptic existence that threatens to change both the face of Neo Tokyo and the lives of those who call the city their home—the awakening of a government secret simply known as Akira.
