 "I doubt many others will want to sit through an hour of steam-powered Victorian-era devices attacking each other"; Agreed, but for some of us that's manna from heaven.

 Am I the only one that doesn't like Akira, then? Incomprehensible gibberish, I thought. And I like anime. Well, some of it.

 "considering its chances as a commercial breakthrough were slim anyway" - How very American of you. In fact it was expected (hoped) to have Miyazaki-esque success in Japan and Asia due to its chances for broader, family-friendly appeal (compared to Akira). I believe the box office in Japan was pretty much a disappointment.
