Biography

About Steampunk

- Steampunk Genre Information by Tsunade


The term Steampunk comes from the sub-genre of science fiction that is inspired by the industrial steam-powered machinery from the 19th-century. The genre itself largely incorporates the aesthetic design and technology of that era and the stories are set in either the American 'Wild West', a post-apocalyptic future, or in the British Victorian era.

The Steampunk fashion typically offers the traditional 19th-century clothing such as corsets and for accessories, goggles have become a Steampunk trademark as it is highly practical for the characters especially in the 'Wild West' settings and it is evident in the anime and movie series where most characters are often seen wearing a pair.

A popular anime/manga with a 'Wild West' theme is Yasuhiro Nightow's Trigun. The story revolves around a mysterious gunman known as 'Vash the Stampede' who is notorious for causing destruction in the places he visits, and with a bounty of sixty billion dollars, he is the most wanted man in the series.

One of the most recent post-apocalyptic Steampunk movie that came out is director George Miller's Mad Max: Fury Road, an addition to the franchise that began with the 1979 Mel Gibson film. The setting of Mad Max is a desert wasteland world which was the result of a nuclear holocaust. Max Rockatansky, the main protagonist, is a Main Force Patrol officer that gets into lots of trouble that spans over four films.

As for Steampunk in the British Victorian era, the series that first comes to mind is Hiromu Arakawa's Fullmetal Alchemist - one of the most popular manga series that sold 64 million copies worldwide. The story focuses on Edward and Alphonse; the Elric brothers, who are searching for the Philosopher's Stone to restore their bodies after a botched attempt at reviving their dead mother using alchemy.

There is a wide variety of the Steampunk genre in almost all forms of media. It is very common for writers to incorporate other elements from the horror, fantasy, and even historical fiction sub-genre to create a hybrid combination for that truly unique story.
