** The movie has two English dubs: one from 1988 and one from 2001. The 1988 dub was created by Kodansha for the film's initial US release and was distributed by Creator/StreamlinePictures, which resulted in it being referred to as the "Streamline dub", despite Streamline Pictures not actually producing it. The 2001 dub was done by Animaze for [[Creator/{{Geneon}} Pioneer's]] DVD release of the film and was created so the DVD would pass THX Certification. Until 2013, only the 2001 dub was distributed in the US, with the 1988 dub appearing on UK and Australian DVD releases. Both dubs would eventually appear on the 25th Anniversary Edition DVD and Blu-ray in 2013, which was distributed by Funimation.

* Unusually for anime, the film uses the western "pre-lay" style of recording first and then animating the mouths to match.

* The movie is one of the last animated features to use traditional cel animation exclusively and it's entirely made by hand.

* The movie is one of the last animated features to use traditional cel animation exclusively and it's entirely made by hand. Its status as a landmark in animation and cultural status in Japan has made further adaptations impossible, including multiple attempts at live-action films and animated series.

* The movie covers about 1/3 of the manga, excluding the urban battle for control of Akira and the aftermath following the second "Akira" event, which happens much later in the story.
