When I heard the news that Tokyo will host the 2020 Olympic Games, I felt a strong case of déjà vu. Then it hit me like the Karate Kid's crane kick. It echoes the plot of Katsuhiro Otomo's cult classic manga and anime film Akira! In the story, Neo-Tokyo prepares to host the Olympic Games against a backdrop of totalitarian rule and social unrest in the year 2020. Talk about art imitating life! With Fukushima still leaking radioactive catastrophe, it's a scary coincidence. Here's hoping the real deal is a little more Doraemon, and a lot less dystopian apocalypse. The bikes will be cool though.
