Product Description:
Never before released in complete boxset form!

The domed city of Romd is an impenetrable would-be utopia where humans and robots coexist, and everything is under complete government control, or so it appears. While working on a mysterious murder case, Re-l Mayer, a female detective from the Civilian Intelligence Office, receives a foreboding message that something is going to "awaken." That night, she's attacked by a deformed super-being...what was this unidentified monster that attacked her, and who was the figure that came in between them? As Re-l attempts to unlock this spiraling mystery, a metaphysical battle cry leads her to the unknown outside world...

Ending theme song, "Paranoid Android" performed by Radiohead
When it premiered in 2006, the broadcast series Ergo Proxy attracted a lot of attention because Radiohead let the filmmakers use "Paranoid Android" as the closing theme. Tough-talking intelligence agent Re-l lives in the domed city of Romdo, a pseudo-utopia where humans and androids co-exist under an all-pervasive regime administered by her grandfather. When monsters called Proxies begin attacking people and robots ("autoreives") develop a sense of self due to the "Cogito" virus, Re-l launches her own investigatition. Along the way, she meets immigrant Vincent Law, who travels with the cognizant cyborg Pino. Violating the laws of the city, she follows Vincent and Pino outside the dome and discovers that the rulers of Romdo have lied: human colonies still exist in the scarred landscape. Re-l also learns that Proxies are god-like beings of unknown origin and enormous power. The series borrows heavily from Appleseed, Neon Genesis Evangelion, and Ghost in the Shell: S.A.C., but the perpetually fussy Re-l lacks Major Kusanagi's fascination. The filmmakers snarl the already convoluted plot in a tangle of flashbacks and alternate visions that recall the confusing structure of Gasaraki. The narration jumps the track entirely in Episodes #14, 15, and 19, three pointless fantasies that waste time which should have been used to clarify the story. Ergo Proxy will appeal to viewers who favor violent action over coherent storytelling and credible characters. The extras include three behind-the-scenes featurettes, plus Japanese trailers and commercials. (Rated 16 and older: violence, violence against women, grotesque imagery, profanity) --Charles Solomon
