From civil war to post apocalypse, the Akira manga series continues to impress me. At this point the manga has gone in such a different direction than the movie did that it's not even worth comparing the two. Instead, I would compare the manga too itself. I have never read a manga that had such a breadth and depth of expression - truly epic. For me Akira has earned its right to be compared with science fiction great epic's: Dune, 2001: A Space Odyssey, and The Foundation to name a few.
