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
I have no idea what the hell is happening but there were some funny moments.
Although I can understand that that one boy get attached so quickly with the two girls since it's probably the only real human interaction he had in a long while.
That was a lovely episode. Although i don't really abide by it myself, i liked the moral lesson of staying together as a family.
I get a feeling those three are going to have him team up on a journey to overthrow the fake utopia. To me it seems quiet obvious from the way things are going. The only doubt would be the fact that they were chasing her in the first place... >.>
Enri and her followers remind me very much of Team Rocket from Pokemon. Especially that pitfall at the end. xD That's definitely something Team Rocket loved to do (especially Jessie).
Finally, there's some information on Clain's parents. Apparently they are somewhere far away and are using their doppels to talk to him. Poor Clain must be feeling very lonely. :( Seriously, people don't want to have normal home because that would tie them in one place? I definitely wouldn't want to live in that kind of world. And I was quite sure that those prayers are brainwashing people. I think Phryne wanted to change the world and Nessa somehow would be able to help.
This anime definitely hits a jackpot wit its slice of life theme mixing wit technology.Fractale definitely has potential wit its unique idea of combine both of this aspect in just 2 episode.I looking forward for more episode.
Somehow the characters might feel kinda clinche but in times they are important for its main story.Not to mention,Fractale arc was crisp but not as detailed as other slice of life anime such as Aria.So the animation for Fractale is top notch for a 2011 anime.

This episode was better then last weeks episode it also explained a bit more.
The setting is still great and gives a very nice feeling towards this Anime, it also makes for a relaxing atmosphere.
It explains what's wrong with there technology why it was developed and the problems it creates, people are free to do what they want and it seems they just turned lazy because of that rule.
If you can't even be bothered to live in the same house as your children any more, it creates a rather sad society.
Personas said: I totally thought the OP sounded like Mass Effect credits ending...
Yeah, a little bit like the second one.
Anyway, for now I think this is the best anime this season. Entertaining, quite hilarious, beautiful art and interesting OP's and ED's, all in one :D
Also, interesting to see what fallowed next to the manga(that which we can read). Noted as well that Fractale goes on Friday. Can't wait for the next episode.
Great episode, there's really something to this series with its fantastic backgrounds, nice music and weird characterization. I now see how it could be a Denno Coil meets Nadia. This second ep was much, much better than the first and guess what ? It actually made sense !
