From the box:
Neo-Tokyo Is About To Explode!
In the 21st century, 30 years after a devastating global nuclear war, mankind is once again on the brink of total annihilation. In a world populated by rival motorcycle gangs and petty politicians, a powerful psychic force, known only as “AKIRA,” suddenly resurfaces in Neo-Tokyo. Tetsou — a young, inexperienced biker — driven beyond the boundaries of sanity by the power of AKIRA, is forced to conjure up demons laying within his subconscious.
AKIRA redefines the very essence of the medium… a mindboggling film unlike anything seen before… a milestone in the history of Japanese animation.
