Ergo Proxy
The similarities here are loose, however the mood is much the same. The color palette and art style are similar, particularly the use of muted almost washed-out colors with strong dark overtones. Both are set in a near-future timeline with a post-apocalyptic twist. The difference is that where Ergo Proxy has a strong, linear plot line, Texhnolyze's plot is somewhat disjointed and very far from being direct. For those that love a story you have to watch a couple times before understanding what it's trying to get at, Texhnolyze is an obscure must.

Both are dark dystopic cyberpunk animes. Texhnolyze is alot darker and slower in pacing. Ergo Proxy is more action and perhaps more psychological?

dark atmosphere, fictional (sci-fi) world to explore, rather slow development regarding plot and characters, not your average style of storytelling

Almost the same setting as the other and they both got almost the same feeling. But I must say that I prefer Texhnolyze over Ergo Proxy.

Both take place in a bleak, unrelenting future. Both have some interesting characters, are very well animated, and both are heavy psychological. Texhnolyze is a little more depressing, has a very depressing tone, and... doesn't end well... Ergo has much more approachable characters, has points of humor, and is easier to enjoy.

Texhnolyze is an anime with a very similar feel to Ergo Proxy. Both are based in an almost false utopia. Texhnolzye takes place in the underground city of Lux, which is similar in a few ways to Ergo Proxy's Romdeau. There is a similar atmosphere and tone to the anime, sharing the same dark feel. You may not like Texhnolyze, since it is harder to follow than Ergo Proxy, but probably if you really enjoyed Ergo Proxy, give it a shot.

In terms of story, both series features a cyberpunk setting with a similar feeling in a dark world. The plot is deep in both that portrays the dark backgrounds, intense scars, and other psychological factors. The series' dystopian themes are also present that holds influence among many of its characters. Both series also takes place in the future where technology are more advanced than our own. Both series features a complex plot that becomes more clear as the episodes progresses.

Both are incredibly dark and incredibly quiet dystopian/cyberpunk anime.

Both are cyberpunk, both have dark atmospheres and similar mood to them. They are fairly different in many aspects, but if you like one you'll probably like the other as well.

both have a dark futuristic plot and you could say both are a cyberpunk anime with a complex history or idea to understand.

It takes a certain, special someone to enjoy and comprehend anime like this, so if you were fond at all about one of these, you should thoroughly enjoy the other. Both anime feature a character trying to understand the world around them as it slowly crumbles apart. The overall atmosphere for both is dark and nihilistic and can leave a feeling of despair at times. Not for the faint of heart, or short attention span.

All is reason for existence. Reason for existence is all. Both are similar in various points. Theme, Setting, Design, Music, Atmospheres, Characters. Almost everything. At first, Ichise is same position with Vincent Law IMO. They are seeking existence value, and embracing unfocused anger at the same time. In spite of they are in such environment, they don't lose themselves. The same can be said of Ran and Re-l Mayer. Texhnolyze is devastation city. Ergo Proxy is ideal city. Besides these places, people are exist. Like ego. Both setting are Dystopia. As above stated. In addition, Ergo Proxy has philosophy and psychology. Texhnolyze has mechanical and authority. These elements are just ostensibly.   read more

Both share the bleak dystopian setting, heavy philosophical implications, characters searching for their own truth and/or purpose, the human-vs-machine problematic and heavily character-driven stories. Both set a very believable, dark, post-apocalyptic atmosphere and deal with various aspects of society and technology. Texhnolyze has a more raw and nihilistic feel to it. Ergo Proxy takes a more episodic approach than Texhnolyze.
