A classic of the steam punk spin-off movement from cyberpunk, Steam Boy offers a fantastic, sepia-toned vision of the past-as-future. It is the first feature by Katsuhiro Otomo since his watershed Akira (1988); in place of the dystopic Neo-Tokyo of Akira, Steamboy is set in an England of 1866.
Ray is a young inventor living in the U.K. in the middle of the 19th century. Shortly before the first ever Great Exhibition, a marvelous invention called the "Steam Ball," behind which a menacing power is hidden, arrives at his door from his grandfather Lloid in the U.S. Meanwhile the nefarious O'Hara Foundation has sent men to aquire the Steam Ball so that they can use its power towards their own illicit ends.
