Akira is a Japanese cyberpunk manga (comics or graphics novel originating from japan) series, which is written and illustrated by Katsuhiro Otomo. This comic was initially published as a serial in the Youth Magazine, which was a youth manga magazine from 1982 until 1990, which was mainly targeting the young male adult audience. This comic story, which was being published weekly in the magazine, was collected into six Tankaboon volumes during 1984 and 1991 by its publisher Kodansha. Tankaboon is a Japanese term used for a book that is not of a part of series, but in modern Japan, it is used to refer an independent volume of a single manga. Its popularity went all the way across the continent, where it was then published in the United States by Marvel Comics under Epic Comics, being the first manga ever to be entirely translated into English. Kodansha Comics is currently responsible for its publication in North America.

This famous manga was widely appreciated by the youth that they developed an animated movie adaptation of the same name in 1988. A live-action movie is also under production, whose release is expected in the mid of 2021. The manga is developed in the scenario of post-apocalyptic and futuristic Neo-Tokyo, which timed as more than twenty years after a mysterious explosion that has demolished the city. The story is centered upon the teenage biker gang leader Kaneda, Kei, a member of a terrorist resistance movement led by Nezu,  a trio of Espers,  and a military leader Colonel Shikishma of Neo-Tokyo.

Kaneda is the main protagonist of the Akira, although being an antiheroic, self-assertive, carefree delinquent; he is very popular among the youth.
