Neo Tokyo vs Tokyo in 2019

After visitend Manga exhibition in British Museum in London, made me feel like watching Akira¬†again….

To be honest I forgot detail of the story, but I got goose bumps after watching…

Story is situated in 2019 Neo Tokyo after the World War 3, Akira was started in the comic book in 1982, and film was released in 1988.

And scary thing is next year is Olympic year in the story…

Tokyo,,,certainly wasn’t like after the World War 3 like story of Akira.

But we don’t know where we are heading to…I felt Tokyo is very different from when I used to live…

Only we know is next year is Tokyo Olympic 2020, that is same as Akira’s story…

We humen have power to create incredible creation, but how we use and control is always the problem.

Let’s hope we humen are powerful enough to make the world kind to humen and life in general!
