Welcome to Never Seen Before! A small collection where I'll be posting about anime I have seen little to no discussion about here on Vingle! Some of these animes might be your favorite, some might be unheard of. I thought it'd be a fun idea to share my little arsenal of shows I find interesting, and possibly give people new anime to watch! On that note, I have seen at least a small portion of each show in this collection. There's quite a few that I never got to finish and majority of them I haven't watched in years. So, if you have any questions I will answer them the best I can! Otherwise, forgive my poor memory! lol I don't have as much free time as I did when I was in school, which means I can't watch anime 24/7 like I used to :(( Also, I tried to group the animes in some way, shape, or form so that there could be a general topic. Today's topic is....
Ergo Proxy Rating: TV-14 Plot: The world is bigger than you think... After the explosion of the methane hydrate layer, the remaining members of mankind are forced to live in isolated domed cities scattered across the arid and inhospitable planet. They live in a controlled society and are assisted in daily life by autonomous robots called AutoReivs. In one of these cities, Romdo, Inspector Re-l Mayer, granddaughter of the regent, leads an investigation concerning AutoReivs that have gone mad after being infected by the Cogito virus. In the process, she comes in contact with a monster called Proxy. Elsewhere in the city, immigrant Vincent Law is on the run after being framed for involvement in several Cogito cases. Together, along with the adorable child-AutoReiv Pino, they set out on a journey to the dome city Mosk in order to unravel the mystery of the Proxies. Opinion: I remember very little about this and I know I never finished it, but I do remember thinking the art and story line were extremely intriguing. Obviously on my rewatch list! Trailer:
Rating: Mature Plot: The world of the humans and the world of the demons (youkai) have overlapped one another, leaving humans to walk the streets of life as they normally would, while demons walk, hidden from the naked eye, down the very same streets. A seemingly young woman named Yurine and her servant, the Karas (from the Japanese word for "Crow"), have long maintained order and balance between the overlapped worlds, ultimately keeping the demons from interrupting the lives of humans. However, humans have come to forget and jest at the existence of demons, and no longer understand the privilege it is to live without fear. Disgusted by this arrogance, an old Karas turns his back on the laws he had once upheld, and in his human form, named Eko, he creates an army of Mikura, or mechanized demons, to ready an attack on the human race. A young man named Otoha inherits the powers of the Karas and takes his place at the side of Yurine, who claims that his soul called out for her while he lived the life of a human. They live in the world of the demons. It is now up to Otoha to prove himself as a Karas, and restore the balance that Eko threatens to upset. Meanwhile, a superstitious police officer named Sagisaka and his rational new recruit, Kure, follow the trail of the murders dealt by Eko's Mikura, as well as the trail of a rogue Mikura named Nue. The prophecy unfolds from here into a grave revelation for all in the city. (Source: Wikipedia) Opinion: Basically the same as Ergo Proxy. Although I do remember someone saying/asking if the Karas fight in the beginning was the best fight of all time or something to that matter. Either way, definitely different and worth a watch! Also, demons come out of the porcelain throne I think. Trailer:
Rating: TV-14 Plot: Oosawa Maria is a Japanese photographer currently working in Shanghai, China. Along with her partner Mino, she searches for potential newsworthy stories throughout the city. When strange events occur at a local festival, Maria and Mino immediately investigate. Quickly, the two are immersed in a battle between unknown masked men and a strange, white-haired woman. Just when Maria is about to be caught in the crossfire, an old friend by the name of Canaan appears and helps Maria escape. But a sinister plot over a deadly virus soon develops, and Canaan learns she must confront her past if she wants any chance at stopping the perpetrator and saving her friends. [Written by MAL Rewrite] Opinion: I'm usually not one for female protagonists, but Canaan is quite the badass! My friend talked me into watching this series a while ago and I was glad he did. Trailer:
