"Well this is it, the last volume of Ergo Proxy. Easily my favorite anime of 2007. One of the things I always enjoyed about this series is we're not forced to watch our main character be confident and capable of when he/she sets out to get something done. Quite the opposite in Ergo Proxy. Vincent has always been unsure and doubtful with himself and his abilities. Someone average people can relate to better.
This final volume sees Romdo's fate and a familiar proxy from a past volume. The Vincent we've come to know, is almost entirely absent from these episodes. I won't spoil anything for those who haven't seen it yet, but Vincent has a very large role with the creation of the domed city, more than we ever could have expected.
My only gripes about this volume is as follows:
-the ending seems rather rushed, I would have liked to see these events get fleshed out a bit more and not so much thrown at us in 1 or 2 episodes.
-the animation takes a dip in quality in the last 2 episodes... Most noticable with Re-L
-the series only has 23 episodes. a minor gripe I suppose, but hey, most series have 26 episodes!
All in all however, awesome series and its been a real treat to watch it over the past year. And with Geneon cutting off all their current projects (all current series will not be finished) i'm very pleased that this last volume got squeezed out before they shut their doors.

"I hope you came to the last volume's reviews to provide that last needed push to purchase the entire series. Hopefully you didn't catch too many spoilers in the process. I rent most of my anime because I'm picky about movies in general, but the margin between great anime and good anime is so wide it's even harder to commit.
Volumes of Ergo Proxy sat unopened, waiting for their siblings to be born, because I knew that fewer than 6 episodes in a sitting would leave me foaming for more. I expected more from the ending, and it almost delivers, but I wouldn't be giving the work its due respect if I got all fanboyish. This is the one that will mobilize or reanimate any interest in Anime, not because it's perfect, but because it engages all the faculties. It is such a glorious and unpredictable reexamination of classic sci-fi themes that even when things seem `off' they only draw you in further.
The end of a great series

"Ergo Proxy Vol 6 marks the last volume in one of the most intriguing and thought provoking series I have seen in quite some time. While I can't go into too much details as to what actually goes on in the episodes I will give a brief spoiler free overview of where the disc starts. It picks up after Pino, Re-l, and Vincent have returned to Romdo to find that all is not well. There is what could be described as a civil war going on between the humans and the entourages. All the while you can tell there is something sinister lurking in the background just waiting to make itself known. The three episodes on the disc reveal everything that has been hidden in the past. As a result there are a lot of things thrown at you at once (as animes so often tend to do), so you may not get everything right away but after a few watches it does make sense. Re-l's truth and past is revealed along with Vincent's and the truth about what Proxy's are. Not too mention what roles the Regient, Daedalus, and Raul play in the unfolding of it all. One of the things I enjoyed most though, was the fact that this makes the previous episode about the Walt Disney like world make sense. If you read my review about that, I couldn't find anything relevant to it at all in the story. Now I can and that just shows how well the team behind the series developed it. Obviously if you are reading this you have probably watched the rest of the series and will pick this up regardless, but if for some reason you haven't seen any of it or just some, I cannot recommend it anymore. This is one of the best animes to come out in recent memory."

"I thought this was one of the best anime series to date, when I had seen the whole show from start to finish i came and bought all the discs. I think the ending was a perfect fit for this particular series because all the questions I might have held about Vince and Re-al and The Creator were in-fact answered. I would give this disc a 6 star review if I could, because I know anyone that's into philosophy, religion and general questions like..."why am I here?"...will love this anime and be hooked after the first disc. I was sad to see it end but I honestly couldnt have asked for a better ending."
