This is an amazing box set of this iconic manga and any fan of Akira or manga in general should own this. If you've ever seen the anime then you know the basic story but the manga adds so much more to the story and it unfolds over a much longer period of time. Please note The pics I've uploaded are from my own copy so you can see everything that's included in the box set but the one I have for sale is brand new and still sealed.

In 1982, Kodansha published the first chapter of Akira, a dystopian saga set in Neo-Tokyo, a city recovering from thermonuclear attack where the streets have been ceded to motorcycle gangs and the rich and powerful run dangerous experiments on destructive, supernatural powers that they cannot control. In 1988, the manga was adapted into what was at the time the most expensive animated film ever made, which brought Akiras influence out of the manga world and onto the global stage. Today, it remains a touchstone for artists, writers, filmmakers, and fans, retaining all the brutal impact and narrative intensity it had when Otomo first unleashed it onto the world.
