Ergo Proxy, I’m Impressed

April 11th, 2007 No comments

Ergo Proxy

I’ve never been so impressed with Japanese animation until now. Ergo Proxy was pretty thrilling and the art style was just… great. It’s from the same guys who made Samurai Champloo so you’ve got the Cowboy Bebop experience somewhere in there as well.

It’s set in the distant future after a nuclear holocaust in a domed city named Romdeau. The dome is there to keep the people and robots (autoreivs) protected from the harsh post-nuclear atmosphere but the whole point of the story is: is the dome really there to protect us or to imprison us? Everyone in the city is paired up with an entourage class autoreiv which is supposed to keep everyone in check and safe but when a virus breaks out, the entourages start acting out on their own. That and there’s a monster loose in the city.

Ergo Proxy is just cool, it’s one of those end of the world scenarios but with a touch of thriller and mystery. The story starts off with a fight scene and the action continues on for several episodes. Eventually the protagonist, Vincent Law, is setup for a crime he didn’t commit and then the story really takes off.

Eventually the characters find out that the world outside the dome isn’t really as bad as they had been told. The thing is, since people are grown rather than born, there are problems with their DNA. The Earth may be recovering but the human race as it is now, is not. There are many domes but as Vincent, Lil, and Pino search out for Mosque, they discover a horrible truth.

“I think therefore you are.” Twenty three parts, hoping for a second season, I highly recommend it.

BSG Exodus Part Two (spoilers)

October 21st, 2006 1 comment

This weeks episode of Battlestar Galactica had to be one of the best, if not the best, the series has had to date. Aside from the spectacular CG animation, the story was as good as ever. I don’t want to ruin it for anyone but here are some screens from tonight.

Click them to enlarge.

If you think that’s good, listen to the music used in the episode.

Agyeman Confirmed For Who

July 10th, 2006 1 comment

British actress Freema Agyeman will take over from Billie Piper as the sidekick to David Tennant’s Doctor Who in the upcoming third season, the BBC confirmed. Rumors had circulated earlier that the 27-year-old former Crossroads actress would replace Piper, who leaves the show at the conclusion of the current second season, which winds up in England on July 8.

Agyeman will play Martha Jones in the third season (called a “series” in England), which begins production in three weeks for broadcast in the United Kingdom next year.

Agyeman appeared in last week’s second-season penultimate episode “Army of Ghosts,” but as a different character who meets a cruel fate at the hands of the Cybermen.

Care of: NBC.

That song at the end of the episode was pretty rad, eh?
