Nice Ping Pong Review. :)
I didn't like the character designs either; what I meant by "well-animated" mostly refers to action sequences and the level of detail. However, even with that it's still not the best-animated movie of all time simply because there are several titles like Wings of Honneamise or Escaflowne: The Movie that are at the very least on par with Akira when it comes to animation. Well, speaking of Escaflowne, it also had serious problems with its plot & characters, both in the movie and in the series, but that's a different story.
My guess is Akira created a sort WOW-effect back in the day. Like, "Wow, those explosions! Wow, bikes! Wow, violence!" and so on. Perhaps, it did help popularize anime abroad. However, praising it like historically important just for that makes no sense at all. I mean, Bleach and Naruto attracted 10 times more people to anime than Akira could ever dream of, and yet I don't hear anyone hyping them for that.
By the way, there is a slim possiblity I could be banned on this website for a short period of time. Just putting it out there. I can finally become like my God, Roriconfan. Speaking of Rori, I haven't watched his videos in months now. Literally. I used to go though his channel three or four times daily. Women are the devil, my good friend. Sex is over-rated, fapping to lolis for ever!
