This is Akira. The Mecha Chapter takes place in the near future. The main character has the coolest psychic attacks! His special ability is to read minds. The storyline is actually... kinda gross. It's basically about the evil plot of an evil alliance of evil people in high places. Towards the end you pilot a giant robot, which looks a lot like a giant Las Vegas casino sign. You should skim through a walkthrough before you play this chapter because figuring out what to do next can be tedious.
