Japanator Recommends: Ergo Proxy

Kristina Pino:

Ergo Proxy is an anime I've enjoyed since it first aired, and I was more than willing to grab this review when it came up. Thanks to FUNimation, Ergo Proxy (previously licensed by Geneon) has been rescued and re-released in full as a Classics DVD box set.

Ergo Proxy follows the story of Re-l (or Real) Mayer and Vincent Law as they uncover truths about their existence. Re-l lives in Romdo, a domed city attempting to keep humanity going as they wait for the devastated Earth to become inhabitable again. In Romdo, everyone has an Entourage (a companion robot). Suddenly, they start contracting this virus, called cogito, and become self aware. As mysteries mount, and Vincent seems to be in the middle of it all, Re-l ventures outside her domed city's walls.
