Well, Tatami Galaxy also doesn't have tits & asses, and I have yet to meet a person who didn't like it =) and Mamoru Oshii is also one of the most popular & respected directors of all time even though he always makes serious & slow-paced stuff that doesn't look like typical anime.
I think the main reason why people criticize EP is because it's confusing with its genre switches & symbolism... and at the same time it was never hyped like, say, Ghost in the Shell or Evangelion. You know, people don't like the stuff they don't understand; however, they also don't criticize the stuff that is hyped because it's always easier to agree with the crowd. That's why you often see exactly the same users who praise Evangelion & GITS yet criticize Ergo Proxy. It's human nature)
Pinky is now in a far away place, where no one can see him mastrubate.
I must admit that many themes are neglected development, the movie "Blade Runner" (which is based of the book) fixes these problems. I should've mentioned that fact, sorry. Recently, my mind is all over the place. Also, Do Androids is only part of the "puzzle", you can see the full image after reading "Life After God".
Currently, I'm not that much into books. At the moment, I'm reading "Leviathan" by Thomas Hobbes. I'll probably re-read a few books by David Hume sometine soon, I absolutely adore his books.
Sorry for the late response.
I'm rewriting the captcha for the fith time, time to get glasses...
Oh, well that's understandable. I overlooked that point. I had problems in getting into LotGH myself, but about 20-30 episodes in I was totally sucked in.
Have you ever read "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" by Philip Dick and "Life After God" by Douglas Coupland. If you haven't, these book will most likely change the way you view "Ergo Proxy".
Love the video and your intentions, Pinky. Hope to see you make more regular appearances in Rori's videos. It would show two sides of a spectrum, as Rori would regard several of your favourites as garbage, yet you manage to bring up valid points for your stance. Ofcourse, your own, seperate channel would be great idea too! You'd have me as your first loyal subscriber. ^^
Throughout the video, my mind was constantly thinking "It's coming up, LotGH is next!". You're probably the only person in Rori's podcasts who hasn't seen it/doesn't regard it as a masterpiece. Well that's a breath of fresh air!
Anyways... See you, Space Cowboy.
