Who knows? I find this anime slightly confusing, as nothing is really explained. Good thing there are fansub notes. I just finished episode 9. Finally, we find out where the "Ergo" part of the title comes from.

FINALLY! Ani-jiyuu released episode 10.

The last 2 episodes have had some moments with major yaoi overtones... I hope this isn't where the series is leading... ph34r.gif

Yeah, I was pretty surprised myself.

Yay, so Real isn't dead. But I don't like how they haven't told us why she didn't die from that. Or maybe they did and I was just too slow to catch it. Anyhow, if they haven't, then time will tell. I hope.

Episode 12 was just killer.

I love how they're building up tension for the upcoming trip

Some new groups are picking up on it. Pino no Usagi seems to be the name.

I liked episode fourteen... had a lot of pretty moments. I liked the scene(s) that portrayed Real in tribute to a famous Ophelia painting.

Also... who here agrees that 15 was the most... 'special'... turn of events ever?



On another note, has anyone taken time to note the series' use of Engrish? More advanced and well used than most. A few writings have made me smile, though. I'll have to screencap a couple.

I'm abit behind. Episode 11 cofused me.
I get that it was all in his head but still very hard to follow at times.

Am I the only one who found Doctor McLooks-like-a-kid very creepy when he was stroking the Cryogenics tube?


I realise why I was confused. Due to the ammount of episode I DL'd and the Hiatus I put it on I forgot where I had left off when I came back. I assumed I finished on 9 and not 7. Silly Popo...

Episode 20 was a doozy. ohmy.gif Until the very end. This series continues to impress me. Let's hope it can keep that up.

Got around to picking up Ergo Proxy again, after slacking on that. It's odd; I tend to be very excited about a series directly around the time I'm watching it, and then later, in my memory, it seems totally uncool.

I think I as discouraged from watching for a while when I went back to the first eps and realized I didn't have any idea what was going on. So in that way, it's like GITS: SAC for me. I watch entranced for a while, but my brain doesn't really pay attention. I just liked the pretty pictures and music, and liked the feeling of watching something where the characters say intelligent-sounding things.



But!


Episode sixteen made me fall back in love, genuinely this time. After the utter crack of episode 15, the series seemed to catch wind of itself and reach an equilibrium with honesty and humor. It had been too grave and took itself so seriously for quite a while, which made 15 all the more shocking, but 16 was a little bit of awesome character development, domestic fuzziness, and sincere charm.

And the ever classic battle of the sexes over toilet seats.

I just finsihed watching 21, which means there are only 2 episodes left, and I'm just having a feeling that the ending is going to totally suck. I am so lost and I really doubt they can crank out a satisfying ending in two episodes. My freaking head hurts with all the questions I still have, and I am praying that some of them get answered.

WTF is going on Raul? Kinda lost you there at the end buddy.
So who wants to bet that Pino is the only one who is going to come out of this unscathed?

A world with only Pino... she would feel "Lonliness" sad.gif

(I heard rumors of a second season. Maybe that's why they still have so many unanswered questions?)

That would be sad for poor Pino, but the outcome just doesn't look good for anyone else.

I hope that rumor turns out to be true, but I also heard a rumor that EP isn't really all that popular in Japan.

The last few episodes of this have elicited more "WTF faces" from me than all of Evangelion, FLCL and RahXephon combined.
