Akira

Akira is a manga (as well as a Anime (movie)). Manga aren't well known in other countries, but Akira managed to grow even more popular in western countries than in Japan. The american company Marvel has had the original colorized and so all western releases of Akira feature nice colours. Akira tells a story, which could have begun in the midst of the cold war. (But the Soviet Union doesn't exist anymore, you know.)
Tokyo, as we know it, was destroyed by a kind of a new super-bomb of unknown origin. 9 hours after, World War III broke out and most of the major cities in the world were completely destroyed. 31 years after, Neo-Tokyo now stands, were the old Tokyo has been. One night, Kaneda and his motorcycle gang have an accident with a little boy with a wrinkled face, as one of an old man. Tetsuo, one of the gang's members crashes into the boy, who mysteriously remains unhurt and then simply vanishes from the eye. Tetsuo is brought to Hospital, and everything seems to have normalized. But that is not at all the case:
The strange boy from the last night was a part of a secret military project dealing with supernatural powers. The project is lead by the "Colonel", who wants to develop human weapons with aid of these powers. On his trail are Ryu and Kei (not Kay), members of a semi-terroristic group, who want to discover and destroy his plans. And now Tetsuo is going to be a new member of the project. But his powers rise much faster than the Colonel has expected. Tetsuo manages to find out the location of an underground freeze chamber, where the mysterium AKIRA is kept. Akira, too was a member of the project. But why did they put him in the freeze chamber at 0,0005 Kelvin ? They were afraid of something. Something they couldn't control anymore. Something Tetsuo is going to set free really soon. . . And in midst of all the trouble: Kaneda and Kei.

Director Katushiro Otomo's genre-defining Anime feature based on his own comic book series is jarring, provocative, and a landmark display of artistic bravado. Released as a film in 1988, Akira sent immediate and lasting shockwaves through the world of cinema. In 2019, gangs and terrorists run rampant through the post-apocalyptic metropolis of Neo-Tokyo. The government does little to check the power of the military, which preserves a fragile order and hides the secrets of the city's closely guarded past. A motorcycle gang led by two friends, Tetsuo and Kaneda, discovers a covert military operation, and the two begin a dark descent into Neo-Tokyo's rotten core. Tetsuo soon falls victim to a military experiment that unlocks his psychic powers, and threatens to bring on another apocalypse when he begins raging out of control.
