Nessa was funny, but she's a bit annoying. What she lacks is the little bit of seriousness that comical characters have.
That trio still makes me think of Team Rocket, and the show still feels like a movie to me.
Is it just me, or did this episode look even more polished than the last one? And I thought I'd really dislike Nessa, but I found her pretty likable, oddly enough. Nonetheless, this episode didn't really reveal much of a plot. It needs to move even faster to keep my interest up.

Definitely. Kana-chan <3
Nessa was a nice touch to the show. How did she not knock Clain over when she jumped into his arms? Must be because she's a Doppel or something like that. Anyone else think Nessa (or the broach) might be that "Key to the World" the violet-haired woman was talking about?
And my God, that trio (specifically the blonde girl) is SO annoying. They can disappear anytime. Really. I thought they'd be kind of random and funny in the beginning, but she somehow really managed to push my buttons in this episode. D:
Anyways, I'm enjoying this show. I love how nice the animation is.
Edit: Lol@AnimeCrazy having this listed as "Fructose" instead of Fractale. XD
Judging from all this "praying" and "doppel" stuff, this seems more like a false utopia. People are under the impression that it's better to be "free" than sticking around in one place. They get their "data collected" every time they "pray." All to feed this fractale system? Still plenty of questions to answer but we have plenty of time for it I would assume.
I love how several hours after it aired UTW released their version of it. So much for Funimation stopping all the piracy on it.
brb salley gardens Down by Funimation my foreign viewers and I did meet;
They passed Funimation with little snow-white feet.
They bid me take the internet easy, as the leaves grow on the tree;
But I, being young and foolish, with them did not agree.
But I was young and foolish, and now am full of tears.
I kind of got the recurring theme of the smile. In the first episode Phryne remarked that Clane had lost the smile that he had when he was younger. In this episode, Clane thought Nessa's smile was scary at first, but at the end he decided that her smile was not scary, but warm and inviting. I think it's a message that those like Clane, Nessa and maybe Phryne who care about others and prefer a permanent home have a purity that those who are selfish and prefer a mobile home and "freedom" have lost, manifested in the smile theme.
I really liked this episode, if the graphics for the first episode were amazing, then the graphics for the second is simply incredible. The water and the background is simply fantasticly done. The story itself is also very good, I really really love Nessa, she is so cute and lovable. The bad guys keep being funny aswell.
It really bothers me how Japanese have this thing with "ecchi". A girl sleeps over a boy's house and they start yelling "ecchi" and things of the manner.
That aside, the art is awesome. I like atmosphere-driven shows, and this one is really good at it. Looking forward to the next episodes.
Like some guys said, it's got a movie feeling to it, and i guess it wouldn't be bad if it actually was a movie. The un-developed yet story is pretty interesting actually. And the world - it's kinda wrong with that doppels shit.
For the last, Nessa. She's adorable, how could someone not like her. : D
nessa's seiyuu fits her so well :D and the bits with the freckles girl and those two guys are hilarious lmao.
I dont really understand much about the world they live in though, guess i gotta wait for the flashback episode or something. oh well really liking this series. story is very exciting as well as the animation
