Future Shock

on 1/14/2013

Ergo Proxy is a very interesting start to a new science fiction anime. I ended up enjoying these first four episodes a lot more than I thought I would, but I find it hard to give this a complete recommendation. Series like this that try to be all philosphical and deep, and with a title like Ergo Proxy how could it try to be anything else, have a tendency to fail spectacularly in the end because their storylines end up being crushed under the wait of philosophical mumbo-jumbo Read More

Product Overview

The domed city of Romd is an impenetrable would-be utopia where humans and robots coexist and everything is under complete government control - or so it appears.

While working on a mysterious murder case, Re-l Mayer, a female detective from the Civilian Intelligence Office, receives a foreboding message that something is going to "awaken." That night, she's attacked by a deformed super-being. What was this unidentified monster that attacked her, and who was the figure that came in between them?

As Re-l attempts to unlock this spiraling mystery, a metaphysical battle cry leads her to the unknown outside world...

Contains episodes 1-4!

Editors Note
Note A domed city, Romdo is home to both humans and robots. The two races peacefully live together, both under the control of the government. This doesn't last forever, however, as the surprise attack on a reporter by a mysterious being that is not clearly robot or human sparks an all-out war which may just be the "awakening." This volume includes episodes one through four.

ReviewSource iF Magazine
Review A very different, very cool Japanese animated series about a truly bleak future where every human is accompanied by an "entourage" or an android who does most of the heavy lifting and chores in the world (among other things). Ergo Proxy is the story of a detective who uncovers a plot to cover up a new species that has been unleashed on the unknowing public that has ties to some sort of virus that is infecting the androids giving them a lust for freedom. Not animated in typical Japanimation with wide-eyed, large breasted women and crazy Speed Racer characters but more modern and slick looking animation that lends itself to one of the most compelling animated series to come out in some time.
