Akira, anyone?

The International Olympic Committee on Saturday chose Tokyo to host the 2020 Summer Olympics, a bid that beat out Istanbul in final voting at the organization’s meetings in Buenos Aires.

The Japanese capital, which hosted the Olympics in 1964, overcame concerns regarding nuclear fallout from the 2011 earthquake and subsequent tsunami that rocked Japan and compromised a power plant just 150 miles from Tokyo. The 2020 Olympics will be the first in Japan since 1998, when Nagano hosted the Winter Olympics.

My friend and I were talking about this and I really want them to add an anime and tokusatsu flair. It would be so cool :D

Does radioactive mutation count as a performance enhancing drug?

On a related front, wrestling will remain in the Olympics for 2020.
