2019. 31 years after being destroyed during World War 3, Tokyo (now 'Neo-Tokyo') has been rebuilt and is a thriving metropolis. Shotaro Kaneda is the leader of a biker gang. His friend Tetsuo is injured in an accident and taken to a top-secret government facility. He develops telekinetic powers but decides to use them for evil rather than good. He has the same powers as Akira, the force that destroyed Tokyo in 1988, and now it appears that history will repeat itself.Written by
In the riot scene, Kei pushes past a man wearing a sweater bearing the word 'Young'. Young Magazine was the bi-monthly comics anthology series that the original Akira manga was serialized in. See more »
When Kaneda shoots Tetsuo, the laser makes a hole in Tetsuo's shirt. After Kaneda fails to shoot him again, the hole vanishes. See more »
So i love it! Not the usual.
The story is complex and condensed for the sake of the movie and as such hard to understand. I recommend reading the source material first. Imagine how bad an American remake would be if they messed up Ghost In The Shell that much!!
