About Katsuhiro Otomo.
Katsuhiro Otomo. He is perhaps best known for being the creator of the manga Akira and its anime adaptation, which are extremely famous and influential.

Otomo has also directed several live-action films, such as the recent feature film adaptation of the Mushishi manga. Katsuhiro Otomo was born in the former town of Hasama, in Miyagi Prefecture. As a teenager growing up in the turbulent s, he was surrounded by the demonstrations of both students and workers against the Japanese government.
The riots, demonstrations, and overall chaotic conditions of this time would serve as the inspiration for his best known work, Akira. Some would argue that this seminal work is an allegory of s Japan, and that one could easily substitute the year for and leave little difference in the basic story. Works like Tetsujin go, Astro Boy, and Hols: Prince of the Sun would help push Otomo toward a career in animation.
However, it was the films coming out of America that were driving his rebellious nature. Otomo has recently worked extensively with noted studio Sunrise with the studio animating and producing his most recent projects, the feature film Steamboy, 's Freedom Project and his latest project, SOS!
Tokyo Metro Explorers: The Next, released in Otomo grew up a fanatic of American blockbusters, which has influenced his cinematic style throughout his huge career. He grew fond of the work of artists like Moebius, and is often regarded as the person who brought a Westernized style into manga.
From the late seventies onwards, Otomo created numerous volumes of anthologies and short stories, which usually ran at 23 pages each. Serialization for Fireball was cancelled, though the premise and themes were later to appear in the Sci-Fi Grand Prix award winning Domu and Akira. They may well be impractical and fantastic, but the fit the period in an organic manner. The flick presents only a little of the usual moralizing, as its focus on the characters allows it to become more involving and human.
Not that it skimps on action. Indeed, Steamboy offers more than a few exciting pieces.

The scene in which the tractor chases Ray on his cycle is worth the price of admission alone, and the movie takes off to another level during the massive third act battle. As with most — all? Happily, at least Steamboy compensates for these flaws with amazing artwork. The backgrounds are tremendous. The movie always looked great despite the awkward movements. The movie pours on a lot of fine action sequences and consistently keeps us interested.
From what I know, that means it represents the original Japanese version of the film.
The revoiced English version was cut by about 20 minutes for its exhibition here. The majority of the film looked splendid, but some problems occurred. The main concern related to shadows. Much of the movie worked in low-light situations, and these were often difficult to discern.
Otherwise I had few complaints. Some specks occasionally appeared, but the vast majority of the movie looked clean. Sharpness was solid.

No signs of softness or a lack of definition marred the proceedings. Blacks were also deep and firm. Jagged edges and shimmering created no issues, and I also noticed no edge enhancement.
Steamboy utilized an extremely restricted palette. Within those constraints, the film replicated the tones well. Steamboy came with Dolby Digital 5. We got the original Japanese as well as the revoiced English. Despite some misgivings about the visuals, I found nothing about which I could complain in this excellent mix. The soundfield was consistently lively and involving. All the steam offered plenty of opportunities for hisses and bangs, and those surrounded us effectively.
The battles raged all around us to create a very immersive setting, and different elements were appropriately placed and cleanly blended. It all balanced terrifically well to become very engaging. Audio quality was more than up to the challenge as well.
Music was bright and dynamic, while effects contributed a major factor. Those elements always sounded concise and distinctive, and the mix provided stellar bass response.
Low-end was wonderfully deep and firm, and I noticed no boominess or roughness. I loved this soundtrack. Two DVD versions of Steamboy are on the market. This review will cover the latter, which includes the former.
Until I say otherwise, everything I discuss will be available in the standard DVD as well as in the gift set. First comes a featurette that deals with the English dub of the film.

Thank Sony for their judicious elimination of this wealth of material- Otomo certainly wouldn't have devoted ten years to a project only to dump 25 percent of his footage. Haroon Amin marked it as to-read May 05, Otomo grew up a fanatic of American blockbusters, which has influenced his cinematic style throughout his huge career.
Rather than making a singular follow-up, Otomo combines a coming-of-age tale, an action film, a family drama, an origin story and a political commentary into one cohesive and spectacularly potent story. Immediately after its arrival, creepy Alfred and Jason knock on their door. As everybody knows or should know Steamboy is a film by Ootomo Katsuhiro released in and that took almost 10 years in the making because of the incredible level of quality demanded by the director and also because of financial problems.
