A story of a boy and his cat... and a major military equipment manufacturer. Ryunosuke and his father are fugitives from Ryu's mother, an overprotective jerk who really wants her son back. Ryunosuke's father, Kyusaku, had created an android, but found out that it was to be used as a weapon, not what he wanted. He took off with the NK-1124 robot and his son, to avoid having his work put to destruction. Ryunosuke, while, uhm..RELIEVING himself in an alley, he picked up a cat and brought it back. Later, being attacked by the mother's company, the cat was killed by a stray shot.
One year later, the new addition to the family, the "distant relative", was ready for her first day of school...
Now here's a kawaii anime if I've ever seen one. I'm sure you've heard of it, and have just been putting off getting it. Well don't. Go get it. This anime concentrates more on humor than anything else, and succeeds very well.

I finally saw this! And let me tell you, it was EXCELLENT! I recommend it highly because of the superb animation, I have not seen better animation.The storyline was very confusing, though. You need a good attention span for this one.
Years ago, Tokyo was destroyed by an unknown type of nuclear bomb, then World War III broke out. Thirty years later, a new city, Neo Tokyo, is born. Kaneda and his motorcycle gang are out going for a cruise, killing people of a rival gang. You know, the usual. Tetsuo, one of the members, happens to almost run over a mysterious little boy with a wrinkled face and blue skin. When the others are seeing if Tetsuo is alright, the boy is taken away. Then military people come and take Tetsuo away, and arrest Kaneda and his gang. It seems that the little blue old boy, along with 3 others, were part of an old military experiment, to create a super-human. Tetsuo is to be the 4th experimental subject. Kaneda later meets up with Kai (Pronounced, "Kay"), a woman involved with a big "rebellion", trying to expose what the military is doing to people, turning them into experiments of a long dead superhuman, Akira. But, why is Akira kept in a storage underground and in a freezer? What are the secret plans of the old blue-skinned people? Tetsuo is given the power of Akira by experiments, but, his power grows rapidly, and Tetsuo, amazed by what he can now do, decides to take revenge on people who hurt him, and also to find this mysterious, "Akira". Kaneda and Kai are caught in the middle of a giant power-struggle. Can Tetsuo, unlike the others before him, actually contain the great power of Akira?
