Akira Predicted the 2020 Tokyo Olympics

The animation movie Akira correctly predicted the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. The message in this billboard says “147 days for the start of the Olympics”:

Akira’s action is set in the year 2019 and the final scenes take place in the Olympics stadium built for the 2020 Olympics.

Let’s hope Third World War doesn’t break out and that Akira doesn’t destroy the stadium. The movie also predicted a radioactivity problem, but as a consequence of war and not because of a Tsunami hitting Fukushima.
