Proxy One: I am nobody. Even if I was somebody, I am beyond your comprehension. And even if you could, you wouldn't have the tools to express that knowledge. I do not belong to the world. That is the limit, the boundary between all and self.

Top-notch animation, mind-blowing characters... entertaining and enriching
3 November 2006 | by wiser2001See all my reviews

This is not just another anime series. The primary female, Re-L or Real Mayer, has a touch of reality you can't find in live-action actors. The story progresses at the right pace to keep intrigue and yet each episode has a character of its own. There are many levels in this show too, philosophical being the one they were aiming to pin down (existentialism abounds), but many allegorical and moral level as well, including the issue of self-aware AI-beings. None of these are nailed-in too hard, just presented subtly as they are embedded in the tantalizing story. Once seeing it once, you'll want to watch it again with a whole new understanding and appreciation.
