World War III broke out in July 1988. And in 2019, Megalopolis Tokyo …
Kaneda, the leader of a group of boys with good and bad health, was riding a motorcycle in this devastated city, and had repeated runaways and conflicts. One night, his fellow Tetsuo encounters a strange experimental boy during a runaway and falls and is injured. In front of the stunned Kaneda, they are taken to a military laboratory.
Kaneda tries to infiltrate the laboratory to rescue Tetsuo. However, he sees a crazy Tetsuo who has awakened to a new “power” through excessive human experimentation …
On the other hand, in the special baby room in the laboratory, an experimental girl predicts the awakening of “top secret = Akira”.
Tetsuo has begun to approach “Akira”, who sleeps deep underground, in order to approach the mystery of his own power.
