Oh yeah, kinda forgot about this stuff. Moving right along…
There is a barrier that has prevented me from enjoying Fractale and, until now, I always thought it was because the show was wildly different from my initial expectations. That’s true, no doubt, but it’s only a minor issue that’s only relevant to me. The barrier instead is with Lost Millennium. I never have enjoyed anything they’ve done and I feel that they’re an unnecessary distraction to the series.
If Fractale were a horror anime, then Nessa would’ve been a perfect monster. She just randomly appears, wrecks havoc and destroys electrical systems, not to mention that she’s invisible to most and can hide herself from others when she wants to. And when she’s angry, you better watch out.
This is what I’ve been waiting for in Fractale. The futuristic city full of hedonistic and artificial entites. The stimulating lights and inviting noises attracting lifeless bodies. A seemingly limitless world where one can freely pursue, nay, fulfill any goal, any desire, any dream. And yet all of that is simply data. Data which is not real and yet, it is their life.
Ah, I’ve been waiting for this. The people, the settings, the exploration, and the understanding. This is Fractale.
I think everyone was happy with Fractale 6. Or at least a majority. Or whatever, that was baseless, I don’t know. I just know that I’m happy and that’s probably the first time I can say so since the second episode.
So, anyway, let’s take a step back from everything for a sec, away from the temple, Phryne’s minor revolt, and Nessa’s purpose and examine the people living in the 33rd century. And yes, this is what I was expecting from Fractale all along. We finally got to explore the various forms of humanity in this strange land.
