Ergo Proxy

Ergo Proxy

In a futuristic world almost barren of life, mankind is confined to mechanized domed cities where A.I.’s control all aspects of life. In this world, humans are no longer born, they are manufactured in a production line; and alongside them live androids known as autoreivs. Within one of these domed sanctuaries named Romdeau lives Re-l Mayer, one of a few citizens who aren’t entirely prevented from thinking. Her grandfather's prominent position and the affection of the scientist Daedalus have left her more free will than is normally allowed, but Re-l has started to question the sanctity of the city and the citizens' perfect way of life. With mysterious beings known as proxies causing havoc and a man named Vincent causing great influence on her life, Re-l must travel outside of the city to find the answers she seeks and discover the mystery behind "the awakening".

Ghost in the Shell and Ergo Proxy both share a similar cyberpunk theme altough they both follow different paths (I will not spoil it for you). The most similar thing in both Animes is the way many of the characters question themselves about their existence and possible humanity, the shows are all about psychological, futuristic and existencial plotlines with stunning visuals and soundtracks, you can't miss these masterpieces if enjoy the hole cyberpunk scene.

Evangelion: 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone

Evangelion: 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone
  • Movie (1 ep x 98 min)
  • 2007

Following a disastrous event known as "The Second Impact," humanity teeters on the brink of extinction. Having not completely eradicated mankind previously, creatures known as Angels begin attacking once more in an attempt to create a third, and final, catastrophe which will annihilate mankind once and for all. When conventional weapons fail to stop the Angels, however, the Japanese military organization NERV proposes the use of strange mecha called Evangelions. When the first Evangelion rejects its pilot, though, NERV's commander is forced to draft his estranged son, Shinji, as mankind's savior. Bitter of his father's estrangement and insecure in his abilities, Shinji struggles to overcome his doubts and fears in the face of certain death, but ultimately continues to fall short despite his efforts. As he slowly improves his skills, however, he must come to terms with the greatest question of all: is humanity worth saving after all?

Quite basically, both of these titles are predominantly classic 90s sci-fi anime given more modern animation - notably more CGI. The Evangelion title also reworks the plot somewhat as it is part of a general remake of the franchise, while the Ghost in the Shell title is basically just a special edition of the original film, but if you want to see another iconic 1990s anime title with a new look after seeing one of these titles, the other would hardly hurt.
