About this deal

Un poco menos de acción que en los volúmenes anteriores, vemos a un Tetsuo debatiéndose entre mantenerse humano o ceder a un poder que poco a poco lo va engullendo. Los personajes evolucionan y entran en juego más variantes, los militares americanos, pero no sé que recorrido puede tener esa subtrama, si simplemente es un relleno para darle algo de acción a la historia.

Outline of the story: After another world-end-level of disaster (explosion, earthquake, tsunami, you name it) hitting Neo-Tokyo, survivors were pretty much abandoned by the Japanese government and a group calling themselves the Great Tokyo Empire is raising to power, who is calling the shot? Tetsuo, a teenager who had just found himself with overwhelming superhuman power, and Akira, a mysterious entity who outwardly looks like a 5 to 7 years old boy, who also has psychic power strong enough to destroy the whole world with a thought. a b Katherine Dacey (October 5, 2010).

The United Nations sends peacekeeping forces to help the surviving parties of Neo-Tokyo. Kaneda and his friends confront them, declaring the city's sovereignty as the Great Tokyo Empire and warning them that Akira still lives. Kaneda and Kei meet up with the Colonel and part ways as friends. As Kaneda and Kei ride through Neo-Tokyo with their followers, they are joined by ghostly visions of Tetsuo and Yamagata. They also see the city shedding its ruined façade, returning to its former splendor. Subtitled “Kei II”, Akira Volume 5 is the fifth collected edition of AKIRA, an awesome and exciting manga series by Katsuhiro Otomo. The series, especially since the release of the animated film adaptation, has put Otomo among top Japanese manga authors (mangaka). AKIRA series was originally released as serials. The collected editions of the series were first released in 1987 and its success was followed by the English version which was release by Epic Comics and later by Dark Horse Comics. So we have a plot progressing at a snails pace, gazillion pointless side characters, stretched out shootouts between those characters and hordes of same looking underlings, a forced romance out of the blue and two actual panels of Akira looking sleepy or actually sleeping.

As you might guess, Kaneda flips out with flattery, at first, but then another side of him surfaces, showing a change in him, a strengthening of his character through the difficulties of the novel. I thought Otomo did well with this characterization technique.

Emerald City Comicon Announcement 1 Akira: The... – KODANSHA COMICS". KODANSHA COMICS. Archived from the original on March 1, 2017 . Retrieved March 1, 2017. Things get bigger, more dangerous and more dramatic. You can start to feel that we're heading towards a conclusion that is probably going to be explosive - and I am absolutely here for it. I am particularly enjoying Tetsuo's development here. His powers are becoming too much for his body to handle and its now trying to incorporate his surroundings to host it. It's creepy when he's accidentally starting to absorb a ship and he makes a great antagonist, because not only is he powerful, impulsive (never a good combination) and scary, he is also scared of himself. Set in a post-apocalyptic and futuristic "Neo-Tokyo", more than three decades after a mysterious explosion destroyed the city, the story centers on teenage biker gang leader Shotaro Kaneda, militant revolutionary Kei, a trio of Espers, and Neo-Tokyo military leader Colonel Shikishima, who attempt to prevent Tetsuo Shima, Kaneda's mentally unbalanced childhood friend, from using his unstable and destructive telekinetic abilities to ravage the city and awaken a mysterious entity with powerful psychic abilities named "Akira". Otomo uses conventions of the cyberpunk genre to detail a saga of political turmoil, social isolation, corruption, and power. [7] Widely regarded as a landmark work in cyberpunk and credited with pioneering the Japanese cyberpunk subgenre, Akira received universal acclaim from readers and critics, with Otomo's artwork, storytelling, characters, and exploration of mature themes and concepts subject to particular praise. The manga also achieved international commercial success, selling millions of copies worldwide. Lawler, Richard. "4K 'Akira' Blu-ray arrives next year before the series continues". Engadget . Retrieved July 5, 2019.Still an exciting read, but I am getting a bit confused with all of the different factions of people. I also wish Kaori was a little better developed because I think she would be an interesting character. Other than that, I don't have much to complain about. Akira, the character, seems so innocent and I find myself hoping that he won't be destroyed. Fingers crossed as I go into the final volume next!
