Eve no Jikan

Eve no Jikan

In the future, androids live side by side with humans – but not as their equals, as their slaves. Though they look identical, these androids must display a holographic ring over their heads so the difference is clear. One day, a boy named Rikuo finds abnormal activity patterns in the logs of his own android, and alongside his friend Masaki, he sets forth to find where the android has been. Much to their surprise, the duo discovers a secret café known as Eve no Jikan with a single rule: within its walls, there must be no discrimination between humans and robots. In this place, androids appear to be human and are even displaying signs of independence – a trait that should not be possible. Rikou finds his perceptions increasingly challenged as he struggles to come to terms with his own android, and the relationship between man and machines...

These animes share a feel of mystery from the get go that follows with a growing understanding of the way the world is, in a futuristic time that seems surreal. 

Black Lagoon

Black Lagoon

Rokuro Okajima is a small-time salaryman who is carrying documents for his company, when the ship he's traveling on is attacked by pirates. Kidnapped, he discovers to his dismay that his employers' main concern is to ensure the documents don't get into the wrong hands, even if it means sending the carrier to the bottom of the sea. Now, with his former life ruined and his kidnappers seeming comparatively friendly, "Rock" decides to join their merry band of mercenaries, and sets out with a new career to the shadier corners of the South China Sea.

Although I consider Ergo Proxy a lot better than Black Lagoon, both have the same dark, "utopia" atmosphere. If you liked EP, I doubt you won't enjoy at least a bit BL.

Afro Samurai

Afro Samurai

In a futuristic and wild west-inspired Japan, there are only two rules: the Number 1 rules the world and only the Number 2 can challenge him; these ranks are worn with pride in the manner of headbands. In these harsh times, Afro is a samurai who is on a mission for revenge – an evil gunman killed his father to become the Number 1, and it’s up to Afro to take him down in a shower of blood and entrails. He has mastered the art of the sword and become Number 2, but many others want to hold his title and the title of Number 1 for themselves. With competition and sword fights at every turn, can Afro finally exact his revenge?

both animes are DARK, literally

if you're after that post-apocalyptic, hopeless, grey atmosphere, this is for you

Avenger

Avenger

In a bleak look at the future, Avenger takes place in a desolate wasteland filled with domed cities. Fighters from each town battle each other for power and prestige. Avenger follows the path of Leila, one of these fighters, as well as Nei, a young being called a "doll" (an android created to live with and serve humans), as they leave their home city, travelling into the wasteland.

on the surface they may look different, because they are drawn differently (Ergo Proxy is really dark and atmospheric whereas Avenger has more of a He-Man-like flair) but in essence, the plots of Ergo Proxy and Avenger are ridiculously similar

main character, haunted by his/her past & accompanied by an insanely cute robot kid travels around the dome cities of a devastated world, where humans appear to have no future

there's more, i really don't wanna go into details and spoil more

just see for yourself

Do you enjoy talking?

Did you enjoy long winded, overtly complex lectures at you the audience?

If you found yourself really enjoying one of these "talky" titles, you might enjoy the other.

I found Jin-Roh to have more of a reason for the 20 page dialog per scene, but they are of a similar feel.
