Only three today….do you feel ripped off? Too bad, it’s my bloody site (no, I’m not English, but sometimes I do use the accent just because).
Elfen Lied – Lucy
I don’t know if this is a screen shot or if someone made it, but it’s the only decent picture of child Lucy I could find on Google. Actually, I found this on Konachan.com. It has awesome wallpapers of pretty much any character, but it also has a lot of porn apparently. I picked Child-Lucy because let’s face it. A psychotic child that kills people around her violently with invisible arms? That’s just awesome. And if you want to look in depth, then I guess you could look at how deep of a character Lucy is.
- She developed ill feelings toward humans after all of the trama that seemed to befall her in her life.
- This then developed into a split personality disorder when she was shot in the head (helmet).
- Even after this, her “evil” side develops from an evil person to a good person, leaving Nyu (her good side) behind.
That’s a very very basic view of her depth, but I’m trying to make these reviews quick, because who the fuck likes reading? The manga is better if you want depth. The end of the manga (SPOILER) is probably the only logical solution (albeit a bit messy), but is also kind of sad.
Ergo Proxy – Re-L Mayer
Ergo Proxy was one of the best shows that I’ve seen. I felt like the whole atmosphere of the show made me feel like I was going through the same things that the characters were. Also, it reminded me strongly of The Matrix, one of my top ten favorite movies. Re-l is awesome because, well, first, her name is cool (both looking and sounding), and second (and more importantly), she is a girl who is dark, cold, but also just a normal girl, who gets scared at monsters that break into her house (literally, break) after a shower. I mean, just a normal girl. She’s got the swagger, she’s got the appearance (literally one of the coolest character designs I’ve seen, even though it’s pretty simple), and she’s got feelings. She matches the show perfectly. Of course, there’s more to Re-l than meets the eye, and I’m not going to go into details…..ERGO PROXY IS AWESOME. I WISH THEY MADE MORE SEASONS!
There is some bullshit Greek mythology, but I just ignore that.
Excel Saga – Nabeshin (aka Shinichi Watanabe)
This one should have been a no brainer for people. I mean, Nabeshin is easily the best part of this show (a show that I enjoyed because of it’s random/retarded humor and long sentences that were spoken very quickly by characters such as Excel and that never really had any point but were spoken in that way nontheless that kind of reminded me of Ace Ventura when he takes a deep breath to explain something very long and then eventually runs out of breath right when he’s done talking.).
Nabeshin is just a fucking awesome character. The picture (which I found on Google) does a good job at explaining a bit of my reasoning. He might be one of the top ten best characters ever (or maybe not, but he kicks ass).
