Ergo Proxy

on 9/12/2013

The second volume of Ergo Proxy shifts the main focus of the show from the conflicted Inspector Re-l onto the now-exiled immigrant, Vincent Law. So too, is the focus shifted from the domed city of Romdo and out into the surrounding wasteland. Many of the characters we've met develop new dimensions. Re-l goes to new lengths to learn the truth behind the happenings in Romdo, while Vincent becomes more hopeless and withdrawn. Pino, the infected little girl AutoReiv continues to accompany Vincent, and she adds a welcome element of wonder and innocence to the dreary setting, while her character continues to develop, becoming more human. I can't say these episodes are perfect; the series continues to be very plot-driven, so the characters are not developed as much as they could be. That being said, there are still quite a few episodes left to get to know the characters, and the plot has developed to the point where the episodes have that "potato chip" feel: once you begin, it's very difficult to stop watching. With the continually high production quality of the show, and some very surprising plot developments, especially in the last two episodes, the wait until the next four will be all the more difficult.

Product Overview

Re-l leaves the safety of Romdo in order to bring Vincent back and clear his name. Leaving the shelter of the city is a test of courage, but dealing with the realities of life outside the dome is a test of conviction. The idyllic illusion of life within Romdo begins to crumble for Re-l and Vincent as they forge into the darkness that surrounds them and travel away from the light.

Contains episodes 5-8!

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.
