iFanboy’s Booksplode #14 - Akira, vols. 3 and 4

February 27th, 2014

Episode 598 of 835 episodes

Paul Montgomery and Skottie Young continue their their brain-popping journey through Katsuhiro Otomo's landmark (toppling) Akira saga with volumes 3 and 4. In the 21st century, the glittering Neo-Tokyo has risen from the rubble of a Tokyo destroyed by an apocalyptic telekinetic blast from a young boy called Akira -- the subject of a covert government experiment gone wrong now imprisoned in frozen stasis. But Tetsuo, an angry young man with immense and rapidly growing psychic abilities, has done the unthinkable: he has released Akira and set into motion a chain of events that could once destroy the city and drag the world to the brink of Armageddon. Resistance agents and an armada of government forces race against the clock to find the child with godlike powers before his unthinkable destructive abilities are unleashed! Running Time: 01:03:06 Music: "Mr. Twist" SS
