Happened upon a presentation by Mr. Cory Gross, the author of “Voyages Extraoridnaires“, which was presented during OtaFest2009. His presentation, titled “Steampunk Anime: Scientific Romances in the Land of the Rising Sun”, provides a unique insight beyond the best known fusion of Steampunk and Japanese pop culture by delving deeper into Japan’s historical past to present an in-depth analysis of the genre as it merged with Japan’s culture.
It is a five part series, so it might take a bit longer to watch than the standard fare, but it is certainly worth the time. Please follow the links below for parts two through five of the series.
