In the fifth day of our twenty-six-day journey, I come to a great classic of the anime world, Ergo Proxy. A dazzling Science Fiction tale, Ergo Proxy digs deep into psychology, film noir, and mindscrews. One of the best parts of this series is that it follows two protagonists, Re-L and Vincent Law. Between the two of them, we explore the rich world and slowly put together the dark, deep well of that world.
Why I recommend it for writers: The solid narrative, as well as the absolutely masterful use of unreliable narrators just tickles me.
Warnings: Murders. Lots of murders.
