Akira was supposed to be animated for 70mm but the budget did not allow it. So it was animated in 35mm and the 70mm was just a blowup of the 35mm version with a 6 track sound mix in Dolby Stereo.

It is not all that strange a practice either because Final Yamato also had a 70mm version and that was done on 35mm also. Although 70mm prints for anime are rather rare.

as for the 4K UHD disc there is a noticeable amount of noise reduction. Being scanned directly from the negative it should have natural film grain. Not in the amount you would get with a 35mm release print or 70mm blowup, but it should not look like it was animated on a computer or in cgi.

It is such a disappointment because the 4K has nicer colors and better overall definition but they had to degrain it to the point of the blu ray being preferable.
