I understand what you mean about the manga. The guy sitting next to me in the cinema said that it was twice as long as the film (and also wished that there'd be a sequel made... a guy can dream, at least)! But... yeah. I really, really liked it. The beginning especially: those first ten minutes were pretty much perfect. The ending got a bit drowned in all of the spectacle that was going on, but it was still a really, really good film that deserves its reputation.

One thing, though: was it just me or do all of the main characters look exactly the same? By that I mean Kaneda, Tetsuo, Kei and... well, Akira. I dunno if this was intentional or just a happy coincidence - or whether I'm just imagining things - but it'd be interesting if other people felt the same way! :D
