Ergo Proxy is a Japanese anime sci-fi series that aired in 2006. The show is set in a post-apocalyptic future where the world is covered by ruins and radiation, and the last remaining humans live in enclosed cities called domes. The story centers around a woman named Re-l Mayer, an inspector working for the city of Romdo. Re-l is investigating a series of mysterious deaths that are occurring in the city when she encounters an android named Ergo Proxy. The two of them become embroiled in a conspiracy involving the nature of the world they live in and the true identity of Ergo Proxy.

The show's main premise is the philosophy of existentialism and the nature of humanity. The characters are complex and multi-dimensional, and the plot is full of twists and turns that keep the viewer engaged till the very end. The show's visuals are stunning, and the animation is top-notch, which adds to the overall gripping atmosphere of the show.

The protagonist Re-l Mayer is a strong, independent woman who takes her job very seriously. She is initially skeptical of Ergo Proxy but as the story progresses, she develops feelings for him. Re-l is a great example of a strong female character who has a lot of depth and humanity.

Ergo Proxy, on the other hand, is an android created to maintain order in Romdo. He comes across as cold and calculating, and his true intentions are unclear until the very end of the series. Despite his lack of emotions, Ergo Proxy is a fascinating character, and his mysterious nature adds to the intrigue and suspense of the story.

The show also features supporting characters like Pino, an android who initially serves as comic relief but then becomes a crucial character in the plot. Vincent Law is another important character who is initially introduced as a meek and mild-mannered immigrant worker in Romdo but later on is revealed to have a much deeper connection to the plot.

One of the show's strengths is its world-building. The show creates a dystopian world that is equal parts bleak and fascinating. It raises questions about the nature of reality and what it means to be human. The show's setting creates a sense of isolation and despair that is unique to the show.

Another notable aspect of the show is its sound design. The opening and ending themes are both fantastic, and the show's score helps to create a tense and suspenseful atmosphere. The show's sound effects are also fantastic, and they help to add to the overall immersion of the show.

Ergo Proxy is not without its flaws, however. At times, the plot can be convoluted and hard to follow, and the pacing can feel slow. Additionally, some of the philosophical themes explored in the show can be dense and hard to understand. However, these flaws are relatively minor when compared to the overall quality of the show.

In conclusion, Ergo Proxy is a well-made and thought-provoking anime series that deserves to be watched. The show's compelling characters, stunning visuals, and intriguing plot make it a must-watch for fans of the sci-fi genre. Despite some of its flaws, the show will leave a lasting impression on those who watch it.

Ergo Proxy is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (23 episodes). The series first aired on February 25, 2006.
