Neo-Tokyo lies in ruin. The culprit, a small boy with psychic abilities named Akira. Street gangs rule supreme. Akira must be stopped but no weaponry exists that can do the job effectively. Not only that, but there is another growing threat. Tetsuo, another physic, is starting to realise the powers he can muster. Kaneda, former friend of Tetsuo, must stop his old friend and Akira before they destroy the planet. Is this Neo-Tokyo's last stand?...

The final installment of Akira incorporates some of the best work that master storyteller Katsuhiro Otomo has created for this epic saga.

This volume finally sees Tetsuo come to terms with what he has become, as well as discovering how he became like that in the first place, as he fights the demons in order to stay this side of human. Kaneda must choose whether to kill his old friend and say humanity of try to save what is left of him.

For those who were first attracted to the legend of Akira through the Manga movie you will realise now how that movie only scratched the surface of what is a much more complex and thought provoking work.

Beg, steal and borrow the money to buy this. Akira is, without doubt the most influential piece of Japanese comic storytelling that you will ever read. Now you know why Otomo is the master.
