Steamboy is a rare steampunk-like anime series about a young man with an invention that could change the world. Gifted the Steam Ball by his grandfather, this device has the power to use unlimited amounts of energy in order to drive any kind of steam technology. Of course, something like this would not go unnoticed; the O'Hara Foundation are after the Steam Ball and it's up to Ray to keep his grandfather's possession safe.
Looking for a series quite like this can be a little taxing; it is pretty rare to see something of this particular genre in anime after all. However, there are series that do come close to it in terms of their theme and important characteristics! Fullmetal Alchemist is one of those series that comes close in terms of the kind of technology seen throughout the series as brothers Edward and Alphonse Elric travel in search of the Philosopher's Stone. Castle in the Sky is also a beautiful tale that takes place in a fantastical world that will take your breath away.
Regardless of your personal tastes, we're sure you'll find these classic series a perfect follow up. Vote for your favorite recommended anime series like Steamboy and let us know in the comments which ones you would have liked to see added!
