Ergo Proxy, No.6 Recommendations
Very similar settings. No. 6 is like Ergo Proxy in cuter, brighter and more colorful, unfortunately also more childish and simplistic. Ergo Proxy is darker, cooler, weirder, more mature.
Both anime have got utopian socities. There are government-like systems to make society "perfect". People are being controlledd by the machines and they must obey the rules. Otherwise bad things happen to them.
I agree with other users- No. 6 and Ergo Proxy are both about utopian societies, and while No.6 is more hopeful and light, Ergo Proxy is great in its darker themes. Both have less explanations than other animes, but makes them all the more interesting to watch in suspense.
>Both anime are about "living in the fringe of the city" (I'm not english, but I hope you get the idea of what I mean), I found myself thinking about that kind of life while watching both of them.
>Main character (Vincent for Ergo Proxy and Nezumi for N°6) are similar, misterious and while watching you want to know more about them.
>Ergo Proxy is more "Goth", dark atmosphere while N°6 is more colorful and bright.
>Maybe Ergo Proxy's character are "more realistic" while in N°6 they seems fictional.
>well, both anime are amazing imho ;)
A dystopian controlled society masquerading as a utopia is pretty much a science fiction trope. Nevertheless, there are many and varied ways to present the theme. These two anime are quite different takes on a very similar topic.
