I found the first episode a lot better than I anticipated it to be. It was funny, and even sad at times. I can't wait for more. What do you guys think of it so far?

Synopsis: The story takes place in an island, where a "Fractale System" is beginning to collapse. One day, Crane finds an injured girl called Phryne under a cliff. She disappears leaving a pendant. Crane sets out for a journey with the girl-shaped avatar Nessa to look for Phryne and discovers the secret of the Fractale System. Source: ANN

Will be watching it as soon as I wake up - noitaminA's two new titles (including Fractale), and Kimi ni Todoke are my last hopes for saving what seems to be a bleak season with little to no hope of redemption.

Watching it right now, I was eagerly waiting for this. For those who want to watch the legal stream, it's available on FUNimation's site.

If there's a problem with this post (regarding the link mainly), please report or notify me.

Taken from my post on ANN forums:

Certainly a mesmerizing opening.

But besides that, this was really amazing. The art style reminds me of Laputa: Castle In The Sky, it's really detailed and reminds me of what I consider classic anime art style.

I don't know if it's just me but I get a vibe that this is about a dystopian society. I'm getting the feeling that Fractale is a delusional space of some sort.

Anyways, onto Episode 1:

I found the start very nice and strange (especially with the form of the characters.) I'm really liking the characters, and the story unraveling itself at this point just keeps getting my attention. The 'funny' scenes at first weren't exactly funny, but after it continued, I laughed. This was a great first episode.

Funimation suck though, they nerf the quality down to 360p from 720p.
So lame.
It sounds like they put the speaker inside of a tube

I liked it a lot. The feel of it is similar to some of the old adventure anime like Nadia and Cerulian Sand. In fact, the two minions look like they feel right out of Nadia. Already thinking of their boss as Chibi-Grandis


It was a fun episode and I am very curious to learn more about the setting

Well this anime seem interesting.

This anime seems like a type of anime those "Old Anime Lovers" would say was a great anime compared to todays anime

It does have an interesting flow to it.

And a random Loli that pops up is always a cool thing

I was not planning on watching Fractale until later today, but I thought I should at least watch the first few minutes before responding to your message, in the event something was different than normal.

I am glad I did so. Although, I've never heard any problem with the audio from Funimation's streams before, there definitely seemed to be something up with the audio on Fractale. I also noticed visual compression artifacts I usually do not see.

Either they were sent overcompressed source material, someone goofed on the encoding settings, or Funimation expects heavy traffic for this and is attempting to economize on bandwidth.

It felt like I was watching a Ghibli movie, so I don't know what to make of that.

I loved it and I definitely can't wait for the second episode, it had me laugh a few times too, and other times it was sorta dramatic. I love the adventurous feel to this anime. Something that really suits my tastes! The opening was okay, but I wish there was a little more to it than just bunch of colors. Made me dizzy!

Did you watch Kuragehime?
The quality on it was so bad that I had to up the volume here alot and then there was the picture quality which I couldn`t do anything about :P
Anything that is streamed on FA has this damn line at the bottom too, wtf is up with that :P

Oh well, some fansub group will get a hold of the original 720p(hd) version of it xD

It was explained, they're "doppels" of the people. I guess an easier explanation would be "holograms" of those people, but with different forms. Apparently, that 1 girl and her henchmen reminded me of the sky pirates from "Laputa: Castle In The Sky" for some strange reason...

My biggest question is when Pryhne has gone, and who's this new girl that "loaded" herself out of the computer.

yeah maybe it was because of the random costumes and made up background stories they told.
