It's OK. I think it's a bit over-rated.

It got significant play since it was one of the first anime to get wide viewing. But there is better stuff out there.

I'd agree its overrated. I saw it after NGE though. So it had more competition by then. I'm sure that when it first came to our shores, most anime was not getting a wider audience, hence the "wow!" factor. No doubt the same applies to NGE. (In fact I often wish NGE wasn't my first anime, so that I could see it with an anime fan's eyes)

NGE is much superior to Akira. When I visited Akiba a couple years ago, NGE was still well represented at the shops. Not much of anything for Akira. NGE isn't my favorite though

Ya Akira is good, in my point it can be different in many episodes. Some people focus on different episodes and get different feelings on it. Well, here we go again......Just as the cat said: Dating is over-rated, and New Years is over-rated, but a date on New Years isn't over-rated. Same thing with Akira, its kinda over-rated, and looking at it in different views makes it not over-rated
