Very nice. Which online international outlets would you recommend for anime & movie posters? I keep wanting to collect some for the cinema room/man-cave that I one day very much aspire to have (if only really wanting one was enough to get me one heh, and no I'm not asking Santa for one...).I was even lucky enough to find one of these to hang on the wall in my theater room:
Yeah I got the local release from CEX for that but someone on this forum also very kindly directed me to the reasonably priced European version with English subs available on Amazon France. Probably similar to the one you've come across. I will always prefer blu-rays as well but don't really have any qualms about getting dvds if that's the only way to legally watch something I'm after. The worst case is when there is no release whatsoever forthcoming nor anyway to stream, but crazy long watchlists help get over that heh.Edit: scratch that actually, found the Beez DVDs for like 13 eur - will order that eventually, even if it annoys me getting DVDs in this day and age
Yeah that makes sense and probably what was clashing in my head against the human-made argument. Well, looks like a re-watch is a must for this to tease out such minutiae.I think that Ergo Proxy was the only one not created by humans, Proxy One described Ergo Proxy as his shadow, and I think he was unbound by the same fate as the other Proxies which gave him the ability to act outside of the restrictions of fate or impetus.
Yeah Pino was essential to lift the gloom and also add pathos especially at the start and end of the story. Brilliant decision for the creators to have her to help balance the heavy themes somewhat. I was bingeing Fruits Basket at the same time and felt a similarity between the lovable rays of sunshine that were Pino and Tohru.On top of the rest of the story going on her character was a lot of fun, and a bit of happiness in the gloom.
Dude your frustration and Monty python memes are absolutely hilarious!"the pendant is important" and 20 was like "I said 'THE PENDANT IS IMPORTANT'",

It's very, very good and I can definitely see why it's considered a must-watch for any anime fan. It's incredibly earnest under the veneer of melodrama and bishojo pretty boys, and helped by a great & fitting score by YLIA's Masaru Yokoyama, that I keep touting to everyone heh. Tohru is quite believable as one of those rare saint-like human beings. If only every sad, lonely, frustrated or angry person had a Tohru in their life as a mother/sister/waifu/friendu/whatever, I honestly believe there would be no wars or world poverty heh. We were talking about massive episode counts earlier, and this is one I ended up inhaling in a very short period despite the 63 episode count. Right enough digressing and back to Ergo ProxyThat is on my plan to watch list as well!
I thought the same that it was purely to sabotage the Proxy-developed human settlements, but I think @Dai hit the nail on the head with the virus also being a third fail-safe to have sentience & human knowledge preserved in the autoriev form if all else failed. Can certainly see a dome going to pot if the autorievs rebel and there are no new humans being produced in the absence of a Proxy. Though it happening at such a rapid pace in Romdo was probably more to just serve the plot perhaps, or am I being too optimistic on the expected shower rate of decline? I don't think a Proxy's presence was meant to serve as a literal battery/life-blood to the functioning of the domes otherwise apart from allowing human replication. Spot on comparison with the Fallout series and their vaults by the way. In terms of the planet being more habitable, at the start I didn't for a second think that as being the case, given how desolate & lifeless it was portrayed as. Clearly that was not the case, for the original humans to see it fit to return and as you said presumably have the pulse of awakening set off, which in turn would be one of the ways to activate the cogito virus. Also in retrospect it must have significantly improved for the air to be safe to breath, albeit fever-inducing?? for a period, as presumably it wasn't following the climate catastrophe.The autoriev virus is still a bit of a mystery, what I got was it was part of the plan to end Romdo, if the autorievs don't work properly then the humans are at a loss.
The domes remind me a bit of the vaults in Fallout where instead of being safe places they were experiments built by the company who built them to test various elements of human society.
Overall quite interesting, but still not really satisfied with the answers and pacing was terrible. Could have easily cut 5 episodes without losing any of the actual plot. We would have missed some Proxies and a bit of character stuff, but you can do that and maintain forward momentum! The double episode in the twin city having a civil war showed that. We got a bit of everything in those: plot, lore, Vincent confrontated with the truth for the first time and some action.
I gave it an 8 first time. I'm not sure if that's how I actually felt or whether I picked it because it was the closest to the MAL score and was new to scoring stuff in that way. I'll have to think on it more.
It's very, very good and I can definitely see why it's considered a must-watch for any anime fan
