Just kidding. But remarkably, over thirty years ago in 1982, the premise of cyberpunk manga AKIRA somewhat predicted the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Set in a post-apocalyptic Neo-Tokyo in the year 2019, AKIRA follows the political turmoil and gang violence in the city in the months leading up to the upcoming Olympics.

In the manga, Akira is a mysterious figure connected with a secret government project, and is housed in a cryogenic chamber below the Neo-Tokyo Olympic Stadium. A military base is also housed in the grounds.
