Synopsis

The scene is Steam City, a London-ish city which represents an entire civilization run by coal and steam power. Because of steam, the city is sometimes covered in a mist. Villains take advantage of the steamy mist to hide and execute their evil plans. Only a few dare venture into what's beyond the steamy mist. They are known as the Steam Detectives: Narutaki (and his convertible all-purpose pistol), his nurse-assistant Lingling, and his Megamaton robot Gohliki.

Story: 6

Mostly episodic, but with recurring villains whos story arcs are fleshed out over the entire series. The plot is serviceable, in that you know everyones motivations, and can follow the events well. Most episodes establish their own setting/characters, the villain makes his move, and Narutaki tries to stop him.

The name suggests it's a detective show, but it's more like a cop drama because Narutaki takes a very hands-on approach to catching the criminals himself while his robot Goriki fights the criminals robots. There is some detective work, but the focus of the show is definitely the confrontations between Narutaki and the criminals
