Story (10) - Purely fascinating. Classic Vampire-Human drama and all that would encompass such with a amazing twist. A Japanese "what if tale" about the "Vatican" church, and all of it's not-so-known enforcers. (If only that we're really the case, how much cooler a religion would be.) I am happy to say that there aren't many filler episodes within this series, which is great. I love a hard-written story driven anime, and this one has that for sure hands down.
Art (8) - Only have seeing a total of three anime series now, I would say this was nothing all that spectacular. It was indeed, just very good. Nothing was hard to make out, all of the backgrounds, character designs, both futuristic and or medieval was done very well. I will note one thing that did stand out, the weapon of Abel Nightroad was quite possibly the single coolest melee weapon I've yet to ever see in any genre.
Character (9) - Well, as a new review-er. It was hard to pick a favorite for this series, at first it was Tres, in the end however I would have to go with Caterina Sforza, being a large part of the show herself, she had a very commanding presence and always brought a light to the situation at hand. As for the rest of the cast, all was quite brilliant, each character possessing a particular skill that was either distinct and/or original. The only reason why it didn't earn a (10) was due to some of the childish like behavior from Abel Nightroad, I found it to be a tad over-done considering the role of him. Well, and... Who doesn't love a Crusnik... I mean seriously...
Overall (9) - For the lover of Vampires-Humans in a "plot-vs-plot" but not sure what's-what. Does that make sense to you? Strong storyline, great character inter-personal relationships, hardly any filler episodes. Mysterious Crusnik Vampire class. A great series that won't make you feel bad for not going to church! read more

Story (10) - The storyline is captivating from the very start of this anime, it does really draw you in and make you wonder how and why everything is the way it is. That alone is a very broad description, I wish not to spoil it for any or hopeful watchers.
Art (10) - The artwork regarding all of the different techniques used for this is a feat IMO, an absolute work of brillance to get all these different styles to fit into one anime, resulting in the beautiful breathtaking alustriousness that is Ergo Proxy.
Character (10) - Impressive. And that's being modest. Not spoiling anything, each character serves a purpose and it's made clear before the ending to clear up any confusion the watcher may have during the episodes. The dynamic ways the main characters play off each other are simply perfect, like a match made by fate.
Enjoyment (10) - Not having watched much anime cartoons as of yet, besides that of the faire on Adult Swim, I would have to say this is the best of the best to what I've experienced so far.
Overall (10) - If you are into the darker more serious types of anime cartoons, even when the child-ish type of character isn't annoying this is for you. Perfection in all aspects. Yes even, Q-Q-Q.... be it odd, was still something that made the series all the more richer. This series left me wondering if anything as good, "see above ratings" was available, and I am sure there is. It also left me wanting more of Re-L, Vincent Law & Pino.
