Newest Anime I've Gotten...

Went over to Best Buy-had to buy a new set of headphones for my iPod (this is the second set of Apple headphones that have died on me), and I caught some new anime.

So...

Ergo Proxy-This series is turning, so far, into a pretty gothic/cyberpunk sort of tale. Very interesting, the main character is a bitchy one that looks a lot like Amy Lee of Evanescence, with a distinct appearance. The tale seems to be one of discovery and transcendence. Very much in the category of "so far, so good." The story seems to be done well. There's also a few good pop-culture references, like the Wikipedia-like appearance of some screens of info.

Witch Hunter Robin-I've already seen the series and I just picked up the boxed set with all the episodes in it. It's one of the best paced shows around, and it has been (favorably) compared to being a combination of "X-Files" meets "Buffy The Vampire Slayer". The series has a great deal of comparison to these two shows, and while it occasionally left a few things vague, it ended with everything explained, everything understood, and everything making sense.

Tho, it's one of those shows that you'd love to see a sequel to.

Jinki:EXTEND-Very much in the "guilty pleasure" aspect. The only two redeeming characteristics of the show are that it has great fan service, and the mecha controls are unique-the Jinkis (so far) require a two-man crew, one pilot that controls the legs and the other that controls the arms. Makes for interesting teamwork aspects to it.
