In 2012, he announced his plan to return with a {{Shonen}} manga set in Japan's Meiji period. This will be his first full-length series since ''AKIRA'', although it appears to be in DevelopmentHell.

Mangaka-turned director Katsuhiro Otomo has been working in the field of manga since the 1970s. His first "short stories" were published in 1973, while he was still in college; three of his more famous short pieces were adapted into the film ''Memories'' in 1995. Between 1980 and 1982, he published ''Manga/{{Domu}}: A Child's Dream,'' which contained themes and imagery he would expand on in his six-volume magnum opus, ''{{Manga/Akira}}''.

His dark, obsessively detailed CyberPunk style has influenced dozens of artists, both in and outside of Japan. The film adaptation of ''AKIRA'' was a breakthrough success in the west and ushered forward an interest in anime in mainstream Western cinema, as well as a "second wave" of popularity among anime fans.
