Akira : Bk. 5 Paperback
Part of the Akira series
From master storyteller Katsuhiro Otomo, Japan's foremost manga maestro, comes the epic work that introduced the West to the artform that is manga - Akira!
In the 21st century, the once-glittering Neo-Tokyo lies in ruins, leveled in minutes by the infinite power of the child psychic giant, Akira.
Now the Great Tokyo Empire rises, a ragtag group who worship and fear Akira and his mad prime minister, Tetsuo, an angry teen with immense powers of his own.
The planet is not taking the threat lying down, however, and the world is ready to take on the Empire, but will technology's most advanced weaponry be enough to destroy Akira - and is Tetsuo an ever greater threat?
The fifth chapter in a sweeping epic, Akira 5 is a graphic novel masterpiece of awe-inspiring imagination and gut-wrenching power.
