after finding his brother again, is shocked when he displays telekinetic powers. Ky believes Tetsuo is headed to release a young boy, Akira, who has

work to ensure their children do not end up like everyone else. Despite her flaws and unconventional ways, Katie ultimately only wants the best for her
