IN A DEVASTATED 21ST CENTURY, Neo-Tokyo, the armed might of Earth is massed against the godlike powers of two psychic titans, the mute child Akira and the deranged youth Tetsuo. While Akira has unintentionally destoryed the city twice before, Tetsuo has ravaged the surface of the Moon for his sheer amusement, and his madness grows as his abilities expand. But he is gradually losing control of the limitless energies that rage within him, mutating Tetsuo into a horror beyond imagination, and as all forces converge for a final confrontation, the fate of the planet lies in the hands of mere mortals...and the mind of a child.

This final chapter of Katsuhiro Otomo's internationally honored graphic-novel masterpiece brings to a shattering, mind-warping conclusion the science-fiction epic that has influenced storytellers from every continent and in every medium. Akira is a one-of-a-kind work of breathtaking scope, unforgettable imagery, and singular vision.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic Cyberpunk: Part Six Akira is the embodiment of the cyberpunk genre, and is a phycological thriller that will keep you invested until the very end. The large format of these volumes is also an excellent upgrade from the norm. If you're looking for sci-fi that is gritty and real, this is a good stop. #plumreviews

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not for me I was not a fan. I didn't enjoy the story and I wasn't a fan of the art. That being said, this is a very popular manga with a huge following. I know many people that loved this series, it just wasn't for me.
