Why Ergo?
Personally I liked Lain the most.

First 3 episodes of Ergo Proxy. If you treat it like a movie it's great.

After that... steady decline in interest. When I learned they were making shit up week by week it all made sense.

Yeah, the whole proxy thing made everyone else irrelevant. Kind of like Super Saiyans in DBZ.

I like Lain and Tex about equally, though if I'm going to be pretentious, I prefer the 90s hacker/cyberpunk aesthetic of Lain.

I didn't like Ergo Proxy at all.

What the fuck? Why compare Ergo to those 2?
A more fitting comparison would be Shigurui, for the atmosphere.
>>
Lain>Ergo Proxy>Texhnolyze

The latter is maybe not the most overrated /a/ cult classic, but close to it.

This dude is spot on, though:

It's not just that. The original setting, Romdeau, looked vast and amazing in the first episodes. Then when the setting extended outside Romdeau, it made the city seem smaller and insignificant. So I think changing the setting was a mistake. There's probably a literary term to describe oversimplifying the setting.

Ergo would be better compared to Wolf's Rain.

I found Ergo Proxy the most entertaining out of the three. Such DEEP and thought-provoking. It even referenced "The Prisoner."

Eerie.

Lain.

Haven't seen Texhnolyze yet, Lain was alright, Ergo was 2deep4me.

Ergo was alright.
Lain is pretty good.
Haibane is in the back log.


Texhnolyze is the fucking GOAT, The first episode is garbage but all the characters in Texhnolyze are so fucking glorious and this nigga right here just tops it off.

>>135026492
The first episode was the best, pleb.

>>135026638
Surface episodes best episodes

texhnolyze was garbage

>>135019230
What if I haven't seen any of them? In my defense, I have Texhnolyze downloading so I'll get around to it eventually.
>>
>>135019230
Ergo was just too flawed and had more unexplored territory/unbalanced elements in comparison to the other two, which felt more complete and satisfying. It's a challenge to pick between the two, but I think maybe Texhnolyze because of its action.

Fucking this.
I really wanted to like Ergo Proxy, but despite having great characters and some excellent stand-alone episodes, the overall plot was confusing and nonsensical.

The show had so much potential; it deserves a remake with better animation and writing.
>>
Watching Tex again helps appreciating it better like Lain?
It was 2depressing4me near the end, Yoshii arc was GOAT.
