Added DiffLines:

* [[RealLifeWritesThePlot Real Life Mirrors The Plot]]: Katsuhiro Otomo chose 2019 as a sufficiently distant time in the future, even using that Neo-Tokyo was hosting the Olympics in the following year... completely failing to expect that Tokyo '''WOULD''' get the Olympics in 2020 '''''FOR REAL'''''.

* InformedAttractiveness: Kei. Kaneda comments how attractive she is just by seeing her picture and is so influenced by her looks he manages to weasel her out of the police station, but for the most part [[OnlySixFaces she doesn't really look that different from any other female]].

* BodyHorror: [[spoiler:Tetsuo's horrific mutation scene, which turns him into a disgusting mockery of the human body - expanding his arms, limbs, musculature, and organs to gigantic levels, constantly shifting and re-shifting until he's bursting at the seams, until he resembles a cross between a cancer patient, a car crash victim, a vivisection exhibition, and a amoeba.]]

In July 1988 (or, in the original manga, at 2:17 P.M. on December 6th, 1982[[labelnote:*]]That's exactly the date in which the manga started to be published[[/labelnote]]), [[TheTokyoFireball a mysterious black-domed explosion]] destroys UsefulNotes/{{Tokyo}} and sets off WorldWarIII. [[TimeSkip 31 (or 38, depending on whether it's the manga or the film you're dealing with) years later]], the rebuilt city now known as "Neo-Tokyo" - has fallen into decay, corruption, and crime.

During a night of civil unrest, as people take to the streets to protest the government, a turf war between two biker gangs rages, only to be halted when a hideously aged escapee from the government is nearly run over by one of the gangsters, using mysterious powers to defend himself and severely injuring the gangster - a young, nervous kid named Tetsuo. Moments later, the escapee is taken back into custody by the army. However, they also decide to take Tetsuo with them. He then becomes the newest test subject for the "Akira Project", an initiative to imbue capable subjects with telekinetic powers. But when Tetsuo's powers awaken, the combination of an inferiority complex harbored since childhood with power beyond Tetsuo's wildest dreams [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity waste no time in driving him insane]]. He escapes the lab and goes on a super-powered rampage through Neo-Tokyo, killing and destroying everything in his path. It falls to a handful of people, including Capsule leader and Tetsuo's friend Kaneda, to put a stop to the destruction.
