    Ergo Proxy

    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.

    Re: Ergo Proxy

    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'.

    Re: Ergo Proxy

    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.

    Bleach, One Piece, Vagabond, Gantz, Fairy Tail, Naruto, Hunter x Hunter (when ever they come out with new chapters >_>)... and probally more...

    Re: Ergo Proxy

    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.

    Re: Ergo Proxy

    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.

    Re: Ergo Proxy

    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.
