Summary Clandestine army activities threaten the war-torn city of Neo-Tokyo when a mysterious being with powerful psychic abilities escapes his prison and inadvertently draws a violent motorcycle gang into a heinous web of experimentation. As a result, a biker with a twisted mind embarks on a path of war, seeking revenge against a society that once called him weak.
1988 年7月、第三次世界大戦勃発。そして、2019 年、メガロポリス東京・・・。健康優良不良少年グループのリーダー・金田は、荒廃したこの都市でバイクを駆り、暴走と抗争を繰り返していた。ある夜、仲間の鉄雄は暴走中、奇怪な実験体の少年と遭遇し、転倒負傷。呆然とする金田たちの前で、彼らは軍の研究所へと連れ去られてしまう。鉄雄救出のために研究所へ潜入を試みる金田。だが、彼はそこで、過度の人体実験により新たな「力」に覚醒した、狂気の鉄雄を見る・・・。一方、研究所内の特殊ベビールームでは、実験体の少女が、「最高機密=アキラ」 の目覚めを予言。鉄雄は自らの力の謎に近づくべく、地下深く眠る「アキラ」への接近を開始した.
