Animation, especially one this good does benefit just as much as any other true 4k version. I have no idea where this idea even comes from? I know a lot of computer animated films are mastered at 1080p and upscaled (I think probably all of them?), maybe thats where the idea comes from? For computer animated movies, the hdr is the selling point if your tv already does a good upscale.
Compare watching animated series in 4k vs an old school digitally animated video with extremely little details.
It's like, Watching a circle drawn by humans in 4k vs watching BBC planet earth in 4k. Watching animations in 4k brings very little value (to me Atleast and the folks who questioned it initially) , unless I want to see sharper edges and lines, like somone mentioned above... The details are just not there which warrants rendering the video at higher resolution. Sure on paper it is better. But unless a die hard fan, animated movies may just be good enough at 1080p. HDR10 on the other hand, completely changes the way you see colours and enjoy contrast. That's worth it. Otherwise any software upscaling TV will artificially convert 1080p to 4k with extremely high accuracy as it is very easy to do so, due to lack of data and very little content to work with anyways.
It's not like it'll have to work on isolating each hair strand or the reflection of the water in prestine quality.

For anyone who's not a troll or an idiot, I'm happy to inform you that Akira is a 35mm film, which means more than 4k worth of data to scan per frame. So no, 4k is not overkill... a good fit, but still underkill.

Would really like to know which movies you are referring to that were scanned in native 4k and look awful.

I have the movie in both 4k and 1080p, are you trying to tell me I cant see reality? This movie has a ton of detail, if you watch it you can see that.

Just look at this beauty still I ripped from my TV, this file is 67mb of pure 4k HDR goodness.

I mean I had Adventure time on DVD and rebought it ALL on blu-ray (Same as the Soprano's and Breaking Bad) the quality difference from DVD to Bluray is insane.

My TV is 85" and DVD Bluray and then 4k are noticeable difference and 4k is superior.

Maybe watch Akira in 4k to see what Im talking about.
