I'm due for a re-watch of the series myself! I'm doing the review in a video on vid.me because as of right now the Anime and Manga community on there is pretty small. I hope that maybe some people on here will join me over there because it's a pretty new website (2015?) but it's SO CUTE I would love to see the Anime community grow.

I like your idea of the plot but how would I present the plot in a way that it was informative but not so full of spoilers that people wouldn't bother to watch Ergo Proxy?

I might be a little biased because I love the suspense/grudge/mystery/philosophical/psychological thriller kind of anime. Paranoia Agent is up there on my personal fav list too.

Brief (because I am long-winded ;) ):
As far as Ergo Proxy goes

what first drew me to it was it's unique art style. Manglobe has a way of producing things with color schemes, textures, and angles that I find really magnetic. It is a visually impressive anime.

With the story - the contrast from where you start, in a seemingly self contained utopian society; to the end where, depending on your train of thought while watching, you are left with more questions than answers. I think is just beautiful because the end wasn't fully satisfying and I like that. Huge topics are integrated seamlessly into the plot but at the same time things are introduced and left for the viewer to discern.

From a lost identity, a forgotten life, unrequited feelings, religion, sickness, and death. Even though this anime carries a heavy weight with it, it also has a softness and a feeling of humanity when you see the characters journey and how they become closer together as time goes on. It has a subtle ebb and flow with how negative aspects and positive aspects of the characters lives mesh.

The thing is that if I were to review this anime I wouldn't know where to start. I could probably do an analysis of each dome because gosh are those domes rich in culture/story.

I thought Ergo Proxy was intricate anime with an odd, but strangely addicting, way of taking the viewer through the story. A story that you can read REALLY deep into.

If you were doing an Ergo Proxy review what would be your main focus?

There's an Naples crime drama series which is as excellent as The Sopranos/The Wire called 'Gommorah', gritty and realistic.

What did you think of Season 5+ with the war between the Sopranos family and Luppertazi family? They needed more screen time to be honest, I liked Sack and Phil Leotardo the most, the 'Shah of iran' :P and sacck died of cancer aswell.

Artie and Christopher were tragic characters aswell but Blundetto was more funnier than Ralphie, hilarious cousin of Tony S.

Marlo didn't have the same respect that Avon had so I did like that twist. My favourite characters from The Wire were Roland, Bubbles, Omar little, Bunny Colvin, Wee-bay, Slim charles, Frank Sobotka, Jimmy, Bunk, Lestor, Prop Joe, Spiros, Cutty, Avon, Stringer Bell and Bodie.

While in The Sopranos it was Tony, Paulie, Ritchie, Tony Blundetto, Johnny Sack, Ralphie,Bobby Jr, Corrado Jr, Furio, Ritchie Aprile, Christopher, Carmela and Dr Melfi.

Babylon 5 and Three Kingdoms should be watched first in my opinion, two masterpiece of a series, far better than The Wire (season 1-2-3 were the best, 4th was alright but I don't like Marlo as a character, Snoop/Chris were far better than him and the 5th season was an insult to the fans with the amount of deaths we got, at-least Slim Charles is still alive, one of the most underrated side characters in the series).

Tony Soprano is the best written tv character I've ever seen. The Sopranos is a masterpiece, if you're looking for a series as good as The Sopranos, check out Madmen, Babylon 5, Three Kingdom (2010), The Wire, The Last Kingdom, Band of brothers, Narcos, The West Wing, Yes Minister, Breaking Bad and Twin Peaks.
