How do I end up with Ergo Proxy ?
I have not been really sitting down in front of the TV and watching anime non-stop for few hours, for almost a year. The ones that i closely followed was Blood+, Honey & Clover, Ouran Host Club, Perfect Girl Evolution, and that is only like one episode per week?!
The first few episodes of Ergo Proxy are quite impressive – dark, gloomy and mysterious. Animes of this kind always seem to attract me..it reminds me of Blood+, filled with monsters and mystery. In Ergo Proxy, we have the Proxys, the Auto Reivs & a big big Mystery too.
Story (taken from Wikipedia)
The story initially takes place in a futuristic dome city called Romondeo built to protect its citizens after global environmental apocalypse. In this utopia, humans and androids (AutoReivs) coexist with each other peacefully under a total management system. Behind the scenes, the government is conducting secret experiments on a mysterious creature called the Proxyy, which is believed to hold the key to the survival of mankind.
The pace seems kind of slow, not sure why, but it don’t really bothers me yet. I totally love how every thing is revealed to the audience bits and pieces, and not thrown in your face all at once.
The characters are interesting, but mostly of complex behaviours.
