Aw man, I just read this show's only going to have 11 episodes.

...then again considering how ep 8 ended, I wouldn't be utterly surprised (albeit disappointed) if it ended right there.

Finished the show.

5/10, borderline 4.5 The constant mention of 'naughty' people (trying to be used as a joke) fell kinda flat for me so the 'fanservice' pretty much ruined it for me.
Also the ending was rushed, but that was to be expected.

So the first few episodes were good stuff, but it went downhill from there on for me. :\

I saw potential...then that potential decided to move towards accelerating the "RATMAN: Worlds smallest hero?" anime... :lol:

Basically, the beginning was very good and catchy, then the ending pretty much sucked.
Overall: :down:
Sorry...

I enjoyed this a lot, you guys are being too hard on it. Nessa is the best character in the game. The ending was... strange. Maybe bad, I'll give you that. Didn't take away from the rest of it necessarily.

True... but it didn't really leave me feeling "Wow! I wish there was a season two!"

The thing about most animes nowadays is that they try to make it up as they go. Plus, they may not be delivering the hype and ecstatic feedback from fans as they had promised to the producers of the show, so they have to either manipulate the story to suit the evolving audience or they have to cut down on animations because of budget cuts.

Honestly, animes based on mangas, visual novels, or stories that have been completed and showcased on paper have better chances of living longer and living up to expectations than a series that starts off as a full-fledged anime. The reason being that it was popular enough to promise an anime that had a solid fan base so that the producers would know if it could last.

I only care about two things: Art and story (in that order). If i pick up a DVD, its because i like the art. I'll BUY the DVD if i read the back and go "Wow, that sounds pretty cool!"

This one had an interesting story. Animation was...eh :? but i saw potential...

But now... I'll continue waiting for RATMAN

The first episode is what makes me frustrated with this show because pretty much everything after that first episode is completely different. That being said, I loved the beginning: it almost gave off a bit of a Studio Ghibli vibe.

Then Nessa came in. Mmf. :| But I got used to her.
Then the naughty jokes started. I wondered if the creators thought it'd be funny to call a character a pervert 24/7, because if so, I wasn't getting it.
Then they take one episode to show total bloodshed (which is an extreeeeeme contrast to the show's light-hearted nature) and then go back to its light-hearted stuff almost instantly. The show was having like moodswings all of the time. :[
Then
Spoiler :
Clain gets shot, but recovers in one episode completely unscathed. Wtf?

AND THEN the ending has the two girls and Clain going up a tube in space from the Earth (because thats totally possible) and the actual ending itself lacked a lot. Especially how they say that
Spoiler :
they don't need to restart Fractale anymore. Did I miss something somewhere along the way where they explained that?


Points that I admittedly did like about the show, though, were its music, voice acting, and fantasy-esque plotline. I liked the idea of Fractale, and I liked how people wanted to 'overthrow the system.' I liked how Clain really took an interest to vintage things and I liked how the directors showed how vital Fractale was to humanity.

It just... it could've been executed so much better. Things could have been explained. Dialogue could have been avoided (unless the naughty stuff was just so compelling to the Japanese) and stuff. First episode gave it potential, but it veered off on a really different course afterwords.

I would fan fic this...but theres not enough to go on. I'll say "I wish this..." and "I want that..." but I feel that All i could do is completely revamp the story to give it a good flow.

Like...

"The world before fractale was... and then one man had an idea... this is how it all started..." I think a prequel anime would be cool. Maybe be like: "A group of kids is trying to prevent the establishment of fractale in their world...
Spoiler :
BUT THEIR WORLD IS ALREADY IN FRACTALE! EVERYTHING IS AN ILLUSION! NOW THEY MUST ESCAPE THE WORLD AND FIND A NEW HOME!


That way, season two of the fractale story would be about finding these lost kids and their homeworld...
Spoiler :
There is not going to be a season two :rofl:

I still think dystopian setting and problems would fit this anime more than fantasy-esque adventures of undecided hero :>

Well I think you missed something because
Spoiler :
It's not like they don't need to restore Fractale anymore. It's just that Fractal will be fine for another thousand years or so, but when the time comes, since the temple has been destroyed, it CANNOT be restored anymore. No more Phryne and Nessa clones etc, for example. In fact, you can see normal people that start doing manual works because humans eventually will be forced to go back to do that.


Anyway yes, Fractale was a flop. I enjoyed it, but it could have been much better.
At least Yamakan did live up to his words and drop the anime industry. :asd:
