In Neo-Tokyo, the year 2019 a biker gang lead by Kaneda is fighting another gang called the clowns. During one of the chases around the city Tetsuo crashes with his bike when spoting a wierd little blue guy. After a while the other gang members find the crash site, but before they can get some help the army decends in helicopters. They take Tetsuo with them. Soon they will find themselves trapped in a far greater war, than they could ever imagine, and Testuo will have a main part in this war.

At first this movie seem a lot like just some teenage punks rampaging around the town, making trouble. Which they also do, but the main part lies on the military and the Akira project. This movie includes some quite bloody gunfights and some serious mass-destruction.
