In the 1988 cult anime feature "Akira", biker gangs wreck shit in a World War III-ravaged Neo Tokyo. In the backdrop is the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, cheerily presented as some false hope in a country under martial law. It's a gruesome tale of government experiments and mutant children in rebellion, and the internet loves that it "predicted" Tokyo winning the 2020 Olympic bid.
