    Adventure on a Dead Earth
    I was introduced to this show in high school when it aired on G4 Tech TV's anime segment. I have watched it several times since then and it still holds up years later.

    Ergo Proxy starts off as a show about trouble in paradise. The City of Romdo is one of the last bastions of humanity on an Earth that has long since perished. Citizens play by the rules or are banished to the wastes. Nothing ever ...

    Thought Provoking Anime
    I was just skipping through Crunchyroll and came up on this gem. What an amazing ride this was. Thought provoking, compelling, complex characters and the ending was pure gold. It started off slow but the action gradually picks up and then you just crave for more. I highly recommend this anime for all.

    Classic science fiction
    This is a great show, visually compelling and thought-provoking and filled with beautiful character design and development. The series is still bleeding-edge on many levels. It's one of those shows that need to be watched twice, though, as clues are cryptic and not fully summed up at any particular point. On second viewing, what can seem to be intentional obscurities make sense and lay the ...

    Knowing nothing is important! The Hidden Gem of Ergo Proxy
    It has now been around three years since I watched Ergo Proxy and it is still one of very few series that have been able to remain in my conscious memory.

    Being a first time watcher of the series, the watcher will be left with many questions about the world and plot of the series. But as the viewer's mind starts to slowly grasp Ergo Proxy story arc, he/she will find themselves becoming ...

    Artistic Psychological Thriller
    If one were to describe art as a medium for messages about society, the human condition, or philosophy in general, then I would consider this anime as one of the best to represent that kind of art.

    Despite the anime's clearly dark and almost textbook "edgy" theme, it actually inspired positive and realistic thoughts/feelings, and gave me many reasons to pause for thought. The comedic relief ...

    Yummy Yummy Yummy Yummy
    Art: Great
    Direction: Great
    Music: love the opening
    Characters: interesting - especially the females and the kids
    Writing: Very subtle, releastic, intriguing while not being too hard to follow

    This anime has social commentary as well as deep thoughts on what it means to be human. It's art and it's a step above most other shows you will watch, which are mostly entertainment.

  • Absolutely stunning, go watch it now
    I tried to write a review which does this anime justice a few times now and i can't do it. So this is just my brief opinion now.

    What you get is an highly philosophical anime with a complicated story and an awesome and very satisfying end, good pacing, great charakters and good artstyle.
    If you like anime like ghost in the shell you will love this one.
    Try it out you won't regret it

  • Relentlessly complex, but gripping until the end.
    Ergo proxy is by far the most difficult to understand anime that I have ever watched. It makes the twists and turns of Shinsekai Yori and Steins Gate seem simple in comparison. This is definitely part of the charm, as each episode gives you a new part of the puzzle, and leaves you equally as ignorant as the main character.

    The balance of action, comedy, deliberate awkwardness, and thriller is ...

  • #150. See the truth behind the lies.
    For thousands of years, our planet has been dead and devoid of life due to a global ecological catastrophe, placing mankind in a endless looping extinction event. One of few bastions of hope, the city of Romdo, a civilization encased in a massive dome, protecting it from the filth of the outside, has come under odd anomalies with their “AutoReivs” aka humanoid-like robot assistants. An enigmatic ...
