akira notes

youth is suppressed

lights + media oversaturated - consumerism

cops & authority

"don't call me 'old man'!" separation between generations

science unable to control psychic power

constant social instability

corrupt government

religious demonstrators

power reversal created between tetsuo and kaneda

transitionary/the transcendence of adolescence

shared memory & dna imagery

breaking the bonds of physicality by destroying samples of akira- what look like brain stem

destruction of development - buildings, material possessions

human as conduit for 'god power'

personal apocalypse turned external
