Let's have an Ergo Proxy thread.

Why did alien humans conveniently come down after the dome fell?
>>
>>100291216
Because that was the plan.
>>
>>100291216
Wow, now that I think about it I never fully understood Ergo Proxy's story. I just watched that as a kid because I was hungry for more anime to watch.

>proxy one is buttmad that he was created to be discarded when the world cleared
>proxy one creates ergo proxy as a proxy that is resistant to the sun to wreak havoc on space humans when they come back
>proxy one influences the people in the dome to do crazy shit and starts a chain reaction to destroy all the domes and earth humans so that space humans will come down to help them and ergo proxy can kill them

It's evident that Vincent is an ass man.

That's probably true but can you draw bedroom eyes like this?

Just finished the show last week.

>methane beds blow up and destroy the planet
>humans make spaceships to go live in space
>humans leave behind created super humans called proxies
Wow. If that is true, a group of jets flew over my head. Seems those details were covered in the gameshow ep and the one when the MCs went underground and saw that species that couldn't live above ground alone.
>>
>>100292632
The underground species seems to be actual humans who stayed on Earth that's why they're capable of reproduction. All of the artificial humans on Earth need the proxies for population maintenance.
>>
>>100291954
that is mostly accurate but I think the end
>proxies were programmed to go crazy and self destruct when the humans came back to repopulate the planet
enough time had passed and the earth rebuilt itself so the proxies and their creations were no longer needed. proxy one rejects being created as a tool and wants to be free to choose his own goal in life
>>
>>100292825
That might be the case considering that so many proxies go crazy after a while but I think UV weakness was probably the intended disposal method.
>>
>>100292632
That episode had me tilting my head and scratching it the whole time, never expected it. Kinda like the Roswell episode of SEL.
>>
>>100291216
Episode 1 : Glorious dystopian cyberpunk detective anime with sexy female lead
Episode 2+ : Raison d'être, monster of the weak trash
>>
>>100292929
yup, that makes sense since there didnt seem to be anything else that could kill them.

them going crazy was just to destroy the humans, robots and the domes they lived in

oh, and the humans were created to see to it that the earth rebuilt itself

that's as far as I can remember, it's been almost 5 years since I watched that show. since then, I have not found any anime better than it.

Raison d'etre.
>>
You must not watch a lot of anime then and by not a lot I mean none.
>>
>>100293514
Always relevant but I expected it to be more like Aeon Flux than GitS.
>>
This was one of the first anime I watched, and it's still one of my favorites. It's a shame a sequel will never be made.

Also, there should have been more shenanigans in the dome in the beginning.

Also also, Pino is awsome.
>>
Ergo Proxy went to shit after they left the dome.

Also it had a fair amount of QUALITY.

>>100293646
>This was one of the first anime I watched, and it's still one of my favorites. It's a shame a sequel will never be made.
The story was pretty much wrapped up already, why would you want a sequel?

>Also, there should have been more shenanigans in the dome in the beginning.
It's a shame how the cyberpunk setting was pretty much discarded after they left the dome.

>Also also, Pino is awsome.
Indeed.

I personally preferred the show after they left the dome.
>>
>>100293976
I liked more the cyberpunk of the first eps, but I sill liked most of it after they left the dome.
>>
>>100293976
Why? You're telling me you prefered Ergo Proxy when the pacing ground to a halt except for the occasional shounen monster fight scene?
>>
>>100293821
its obvious that i meant her japanese voice actress is a child. You think dub only pertains to american dubs/dubbers/dubbing don't you? how about you use your head a little you stupid faggot

>>100294112

After they leave the dome it's only a few and they all happen at the beginning.

I honestly thought the contest ep was a rather interesting way do revel the backstory without resorting to a 20 minute-long infodump.

I don't get it.

3/10 show

First 3 episodes were 6/10.

thanks for correcting. Now we know its not a child. She does a pretty convincing voice of a kid that i find it hard to believe though

But that's exactly what it was, a 20 minute infodump.

what is this sorcery
>>
>>100294577
It was handled pretty well, it could have been like F/Z first ep with a guys talking 20 minutes straight about the backstory.

I find the general lack of EP fanart and doujins disappointing .

Doujins werent as advocated then

Shhhh don't jinx it.
I think what I wanted from it after watching the first 3 eps was what Psycho Pass tried to do. Oh well.

I watched the whole thing and only one episode was good.

When she turned on the electric razor I though it was a vibrator and that the plot of the episode was going to be that she stops being a bitch once she gets off.

You mean pseudo-intellectual piece of shit, that would be much better without random philosophy lessons?

Sorry, but ergo proxy was bad.

Lain on the other hand was fucking amazing.

I really should give this a second watch. Aside from the really memorable episodes (QQQQ, No Wind, Walt Disney, etc.) I don't remember a whole lot about the show.

Watched it for Pino and dropped it/General?

I wasn't that bad, it could just have been better executed.

There was nothing pseudo about it, and that was the problem. It tried to be too intelligent at the cost of comprehensibility and narrative flow.

the first 5 episodes were godly. I loved the part when Vincent was trying to escape from Monad proxy and was cornered. Then just when you thought he's fucked, it was the other way around. That was near the end of episode 2 i think

Fucking laughed my ass off at the following episode

not yet. Since it was heavily implied in the end that they plan on doing something about finding a reason for giving Proxys "souls"/ consciousness, its going to be another adventure filled with trials, emotion and all that jazz.

Thats also a good start up for a second season. Too bad it'll never happen
>>
>>100296226
Wasn't Vincent about to go apeshit on the returning humans, taking the role of Proxy One?
Having created the proxies, they shouldn't have trouble dealing with just one, but he was a special case so it could go either way.

I don't think Vince and Re-L have much of a fighting chance against, well ... the ENTIRE human race.

That's why the anime ended there. It didn't want to show them getting killed
>>
>>100297019
and Vincent is the only Proxy that will carry all of the dead proxy's will.
>>
>>100297095
He doesn't have the main proxy weakness though. Even those FP rounds have a reduced effect on him.
>>
>>100297019
and Vincent is the only proxy that can carry all of the dead proxy's will.

>>100297095
Maybe they will try a different approach than direct combat. It ended in a pretty positive tone to imply they would die after that.
>>
>>100297363
I think you are reading way too much into the ending.
>>
>>100297095
take note that only a small portion of the human race managed to get on the star ship something.

And seeing that it was stated in an episode that humans will have a hard time dealing with the almost omnipotent proxies (thats why they made sure they have a fail-safe method of eliminating them when they come to reclaim earth; the whole allergic to UV rays thing), then even if its Vincent he will still pose a threat. Heck who knows, maybe Re-l, Vincent, Kristeva and Pino's combined power of friendship is enough to hold them off

You lost me. I mean it can΄t have them killed the way it ended, not the opposite.
It should leave a more pessimistic or bittersweet feeling if they were intended to die.

Yeah, I misunderstood your post.
