Since I didn't see a thread for it, I figured I'd make one.

I watched this two years when it was on Anime Network SVOD.
At first, I couldn't get into it, so I turned it on while I was working and half watched it. But by the eighth or so episode it started sucking me in and actually turned out to be a rather good steampunk series. Not one I would highly recommend, but definitely worth at least one watch, especially if you like the older animation look.

Anyways, started watching this tonight to get it off my backlog.

Though I remember the general storyline fairly well, I kind of forgot how it was all set up and the various intricacies of the series.

The only thing I would have liked that was lacking is a little more detective with the steam.

I found a used set of Steam D during a Right Stuf Blow out.
It does have that rather simplistic look. Not bad, actually unique.
looks like Keshin Corps. or Giant Robo, for overall design style.

I don't know if it'll get anyone interested in the series, but Kia Asamiya is a self describe Batman fan. He's also the guy behind Nadesico.

Yeah, the thinpak did look rather bland.

I myself, winded up with the singles, which actually look pretty good, though I really wish they came with an artbox.
The trifold inserts and fold-out annotated map of Steam City make the singles well worth it though.
