Although this series is quite confusing for the first few episodes, it's a fun examination of if being "connected" disconnects us from others, and if becoming too dependent on technology leads to us being reliant on it and stops us from striving. Probably deserves to be seen twice to absorb properly.
Its an interesting world, where human interaction - direct face to face interaction seems to have ceased and people interact with avators or "Doppels" of other humans.
We have a trio of antagonists to the hero consisting of annoying girl and two goons, who are proving extremely amusing.
Only beef I have is that I cant get rid of the subs via the menu, which since I listen to the English dub track is ...interesting...the dubs and subs by no means match each other!
But the story is grabbing me and I'm enjoying it.
With lush background animation, and a compelling story, the only letdown was the shortness of this series which unfortunately resulted in a rather 'quick' ending, but the rest of the episodes more than makes up for this.
I'll try and sum it up; it's the future, pretty much everyone is connected to the Fractale system, and it's been like this for around a thousand years. Fractale makes life easy for everyone that chooses to use it, making the world look like a better place, as well as taking care of any dietary / medical requirements the users might have. There's no war, and people are generally content. Few people communicate in person anymore, instead opting to use virtual odd-looking 'dopples' of themselves (which is a shame, as most of the story seems to be set somewhere with lush green rolling hills and lovely blue skies!).
Fractale is naturally not all sunshine and roses, and there is a more sinister side lurking. There are of course people who resist Fractale who want to bring it down, but then you have the people who are hopelessly dependent on it (like an opt-in Matrix!).
The story revolves around a boy who likes antiques from the way we used to be. He gets mixed up with two girls, who turn out to be very important to Fractale, and some freedom fighters called Lost Millennium.
It's just a shame it's only 11 episodes long, as fleshing out some of the characters a little more, as well as explaining Fractale with some more detail would have saved this series a few unfair negative reviews online.
As a whole, this series impressed me. The art style, elements of the story and even the personalities of the characters are all similar to things you might have seen in other disparate works, but they all come together very nicely here.
There might be little plot quibbles, but these aside, just stand back and judge the series as a whole - the writers should be proud of this accomplishment!
I love the artscapes and the characters are all endearing in their own ways, even the baddies :P
A fun filled adventure for all the family to enjoy with plenty of twists in the story and a happy ending.
