Re: Can someone......

There is more than one of those kids. There is 5 of them. And Akira is the most powerfull one. Don't ask me for names cuase I can't remember them.


Quote:
Akira is set in what is called "Neo Tokyo" (Neo meaning "New in Japanese), just after the conclusion of World War III. The city is in ruins. Drugs run rampant in the streets. The police and the army are powerless to stop the motorcycle gangs that patrol the city. Riots break out every day, most end in extermination of the rioters.

One of the aforementioned bike gangs is seen at the start of the movie, patrolling their gangs territory.

Elsewhere in the city, a man is seen with a young boy racing through the streets. Eventually, they get to a large, open square, where the army and police shine a searchlight on them. They are ordered to stop immideately. The man ignores the request, and shoots out the spotlight with a gun. "He's got a gun!", the officers yell, and shine a new light on him. Once he is fully in their lights, the army opens fire. The child escapes, and the man is left as little more than a bloody pulp. A girl watches the boy leave, and notices that he simply fades away, instead of walking away.

Again, the bike gang is seen evicting rival gangs from their territory. One of them, Tetsuo, goes off by himself, and is thought to be dead, when a large explosion is seen where he went. However, Tetsuo isn't dead, just badly injured. When Kaneda, the leader of the gang, arrives with the rest of the gang, the same small boy from the square is seen. Kaneda and the boy stare at each other for a while, until several Army helicopters arrive and land. Officers arrest the gang, and bring Tetsuo on board. A small, fat, child, named Masaru addresses the kid from the square, calling him Takashi. Masaru (Who might be named Hasaru, it's tough to tell) tells Takashi to get on the plane with him, that they aren't meant to exist in the outside world. Takashi complies, and goes on board with Masaru and an officer, named "The Colonel".

Evnidently, Kaneda and his gang are turned over to the local law enforcement, but that is not directly stated in the movie, they just kind of appear there, without the army. After being grilled with questions, they are released. Kaneda gets a girl named Kaye released as well, hoping to "get some". Kaye doesn't return his affections, and runs off. Kaneda is unable to locate her in the parking lot.

The gang returns to their reform school, and are disciplined for cutting classes. Also, Tetsuo returns to the correctional facility to meet with his girlfriend, Kaori. Tetsuo explains about the tests that the army performed on him, and how he never wanted to go through them again. They decide to run as far away from Tokyo as they can, together. However, they do not have any method of transportation, as Tetsuo's bike was destroyed in the explosion. Tetsuo decided to steal Kaneda's high tech bike. The ride for a while, until the bike stalls out. Tetsuo and Kaori hop off the bike, and Tetsuo attempts to conduct repairs on it. After about 15 seconds, Kaori notices a group of bikers coming up. At first, she thinks it is Kaneda and his gang. Then, she realizes it's really a rival gang, the Clowns. A clown rider hits Tetsuo over the head, knocking him out. Two others grab Kaori. When Tetsuo comes to, he sees Kaori being beaten and raped by some of the clowns. The clowns beat Kaori some more, until the tire of it, and move on to Kaneda's bike. They are about to destroy it, when the real Kaneda and his gang ride up, and beat up the clowns, except for one, the one holding Tetsuo down.

Then, Tetsuo is seen beating the lone clown warrior. Kaneda asks Tetsuo if he intends to kill the clown, and Tetsuo is enraged by his question. Tetsuo staggers away from the group, until a stabbing pain erupts in his bhead, and he crumples to the ground. A loud bell is heard, with a child saying "Akira.kira.kira!" Tetsuo is confused by this, and is even more confused when he sees his own internal organs fall out of his abdomen, and fall onto the pavement. He hurredly scoops them back into himself, only to realize he was clawing at air. His disembowelment was nothing more than a hallucination.

A group of army vehicles pulls up, and some technicians get out, along with the mysterious man known only as "The Colonel". Kaneda tries to pass by the guards, and get to Tetsuo, only to be forced back. The army people get back into the vehicles, and Tetsuo is gone. Only a single white bandage is left fluttering around on the pavement
