It's one of the essentials in anime, if not the highest.

In my opinion, Akira the Movie sucked majorly. It's so much different from the manga (which was the first manga I read) and the storyline differs so much and the story doesn't reach the same heights as the manga did. I think the manga is SPLENDID, it has so much depth in it.. it's impossible to describe. I was so disappointed when I saw the movie.
But, on the bright side, the graphics are very good, you can see how well they've worked with the mouthmovements.

It's an excellent film, a must see if you ask me. The animation is mindblowing, especially for the time it came out.

What sukotsu9, narrator lenmiyata said are definitely correct. Akira is one, if not THE Best, anime that ever came out in the 80's.
It was action packed ( I especially dig the biker gang theme), very violent, and add some politics and conspiracies, it was one hell of a movie. I bought the collector's edition as soon as it came out about 3 or 4 years ago, and I still watch it sometimes.
I actually liked watching in Japanes with english subtitles, to me it looks and sounds more original like that.
Anyways, if u r an anime, Akira is a must own and a must see Anime. So this will give u a lil bit of history in Anime and where it is now from where it was before!
Anime 4 Lyf!!
