 Ergo Proxy began, for me, as one of the most amazing sci-fi anime that I have seen in awhile. The series is sort of like a cross between Neon Genesis Evangelion, Blade Runner, and I Robot all put together. It takes place in a strangely bleak society named Romdo, shelled under a protective dome. The small world is divided up between immigrants and citizens and both live side by side with entourage units, robots. Unfortunately a virus has begun to infect the robots, making them self aware and making them believe that they now have souls. To make matters worse there are an unknown species of creatures known as Proxy’s that have shown up and have been wreaking havoc on their world.
