Anyone else into Ergo Proxy? I'm surprised this thread doesn't seem to already exist. My brother, as usual, got me started watching the show, and I was hooked pretty much immediately (Radiohead? In an anime? Very cool...)
I'm still at the point where I'm not entirely sure what the hell is going on. I'd like to watch the first two dvd's again before the third one comes out, to see if I can resolve some of my confusion (...unless anyone knows where you can download it?). But I have a feeling it's the kind of show where you really don't have a clue until the very end... and that's probably why I like it. That, and it's got me listening to OK Computer again .
Also, does anyone know anything about the manga? It's called Ergo Proxy: Centzon Hitchers and Undertaker... the first I heard of it was on Anime News Network. I would think it'd be interesting to read, though.
So anyway, if anyone else is into it, let me know! It'd be interesting to hear other people's opinions and predictions
its a pretty good series once vincent accepts what he is. its also quite the mind fuck. you definitely will be looking at the the screen with a dumb expression on your face. especially for the gameshow episode.
Yes! I had seen this too! Under the recommendation of my sister - she's like "It's Good! Watch Watch!" - & she dl all the episodes of it..so nothing else is required from me except to watch it.
I agree - was lost when I first watched it, and it's better to watch it twice. Its more towards the Neon Genesis Evangelion kind of show - dark, moody, serious & philosophical (some may say). I think some episode actually have an 'explanation' at the end to explain what it is based on - e.g. Ophelia (what exactly is Ophelia etc.), but don't expect too much out of it.
There isn't much humour in this anime, but there's one episode which amuses me. Its called ' Busy Doing Nothing'. You can just click through this website >> Ergo Proxy Episode List just for fun.
The opening ost is cool too - its by Monoral. Can't remember the name, but it sounded really 'U2'.
ive seen this anime week by week when it was out.
i was extremely surprised. Full HD anime ,iper resolution,great animation, great chara, great story and a feeling like "blade runner" put me a lot into this show.
i still recomand it to all my friend. its more like a great movie than a normal anime.
I loved this anime. Like everyone else mentioned, confused at first but I really got into the series (as you can see by my signature)
Ergo Proxy is really mind-blowing, i love it, im thinking of seeing it again soon.
well mate i think that here we have all seen the TV show at the right time (fansubbed of course) and i keep it on my HD because there's no DVD out in Italy.....
fansubbed of course :P
Ergo Proxy was a totally amazing show. Although I spent quite a bit of time on wiki and google figureing out each and every thing they were talking about, it was worth it. I loved the philosophical undertones it had a lot. I remember way back reading a long thread that had people arguing about Vincent being an example of a Nietzschean Superman, I love stuff like that.
Yeah they show it on FUZE. Ive only seen the first episode and that shit looked amazing. Im gonna check out the rest of the series too but one thing. I've been told it can get boring at times.
One of my favorite anime of all time.
It's surpassed only by the Macross series and GITS: SAC.
It's just such an involved series, which requires your full attention, else you'd miss the slightest hint.
And damn, this thread needs a bump. The more people that know about this series, the better.
I thoroughly enjoyed this Anime, and rank It as one of my favs of all time. The story they take you on Is highly detailed, with meticulously thought out characters, and a heart of gold. Manglobe Is just great, and everything I've seen from him just shines.
It's one of my most favorite animes of all time. I just love the atmosphere and once you understand the series it makes a lot of sense. The only bad thing is that there is a continuation in manga form aparently but I haven't seen any of the scans only one of the book covers. >.<
Sadly there were two mangas released and trying to find them is tough.
