Fractale aired 7 years ago.

Anime has not been saved, it is still dying.
The saviour has lost hope and has nothing left to protect.

All is lost. Anime is doomed.

That's what happens when you reveal the "god" of your anime's world was a special needs girl who was sexually abused by her father.

The director (who later turned out to be a serial sexual harasser, which is why he was fired from KyoAni in 2007) made a giant fuss near the end of the first decade about how anime was dying because of "otaku pandering" and how he was going to save it with his original project, Fractale.

It was shit.
>>
>>166557582
Fractale had lots of otaku pandering though?
>>
>>166557626
Indeed. Funny how that works.
>>
>>166557582
It could have been good, but then they had that insane tone shift in like episode three where the terrorists showed up and started killing priestesses. And then they had the one guy who had his daughter sit in an OBGYN chair with her legs up in stirrups to check if she were still a virgin after she was found hiding with the MC.
>>
>>166556784
From a technical standpoint. Fractale is an amazing anime. From a story perspective its also pretty good. Leagues above other stuff. Not saying its particularly good, but honestly think about how shit every thing is now.
What fractale lacked is presentation. Its like those ghibli films but those were movies. This is an entire series and it cant hold your attention. It needed more dramatic scenes.
Yamakan tried, he really did. But uneventful adventure anime doesnt sell.
>>
Vaguely remember disliking first episode enough to not bother with the rest of it, and then all the whining and shitposting.
>>
>>166556784
It could been better if they've just kept the original character designs.
>>
>>166557646
You forgot the final slap in the face where after no episodes and years of violently opposing the Fractale system the terrorist boss says he is not sure who is right.

Damn if only Osama were so philosophical.

Senyuu started saving anime, but we still have another 25 years before the third season can finish the job.

No they fired Yamacoon because he's SHIT.

Fractale was OK.
Anime slowly saves itself.
The savior-to-be is doomed.
All's right with the world.
Except for /a/, which is rotten to the core. But it is slowly getting better.

Near the begging of the show it seemed like it could actually be really good.

The ending was offensively bad though, so those who watched it probably remember it as trash.

Didn't it have a happy ending where the MC and the girl get together and live happily ever after or some shit? Though I'm probably remembering it wrong.

Sounds really boring, do they even have powers?

Come to /u/Aikatsu. He's still lurking there and has arguably burned out any goodwill he had remaining.

Nah it ends with them ascending into a a space bubble then learning via a bubble that the main girl is a clone of this girl from 2000's japan, who for some reason became a god for the religion of the planet. Who for also some reason that is just thrown in there was raped. It makes no sense. The show then fades to black and credits roll.

No.
The story and worldbuilding were confusing, the characters were unlikable, the tone shifts were jarring.

At least it had a great op.

Ill give you the tone shifting. The other two are more like your shit opinions. But even then, as I said, way better than every thing airing.

I never got why they didn't go with fused personalities, completely overwritting her with Nessa was unsettling.

I liked some of the visuals, and the setting was interesting, but the story, characters and resolution were just terrible. It's a shame, there was some seed of potential in the show, but it was strangled in its crib.

This show kinda sucked but I want to fuck Phryne AND Clain

The show was trash and the memes and posting around it were even worse, but it is fun when /a/ is shitstorming about something fairly collectively. /a/ is more splintered and distant now.

>>166563587
No, I'd say 2013 to the present is the lowest.
>>
>>166556784
I remember I only watched this show because I saw that gif of Phryne jumping naked into a lake, so I watched thinking it would be full of fanservice.

Needless to say I was very upset by the end of it.
>>
>>166556784
Fractale isn't the worst anime I've ever seen, but it's the worst anime I watched until the end.

They harvested her imagination force and escapism resulting from that trauma to power that magic fractale system, mahou shoujo style or some shit. They break it and get back to Earth to live normally without fractale like other rebels.

>>166556784
Anybody play the game Popolocrois? Exactly the same problem as fractale. Good setting, nice art, interesting characters, and absolutely no good development or momentum is built by any major event so every episode feels like it could be episode one.

Oh, I understand you, this game is so forgettable, I remember only the fact of playing it, but absolutely nothing else.

He used "otaku pandering" since the very begining.

Remember how he tried to bait people by showing panty shots in their first concert and showing them in bikinis in one of the early episodes just for that kind of fanservice to never return again?
>>
>>166557722
You're confusing story with premise. The series spent way too much time dicking around, realized they needed to address the plot eventually, and through a cluttered mess of plot developments at the viewer in the final couple episodes plus a sudden direct frontal attack on the antagonists out of nowhere. It was a decent idea for a series but the execution of it was awful.
>>
>>166573878
And then every once in a while they would clone and rape her again to replace her like a used duracell. What was the fucking point in keeping the system going anyways? Did the world need a bunch of nomadic VR-chat addicts that badly?
>>
>>166577024
>what's the point in having the system that produces pretty much unlimited energy and anything you want at will
I dunno, seems pretty damn nice. It's not like people fighting for resources normally wouldn't produce much more suffering little girls.
>>
Fractale was good until the trainwreck ending. The whole village at the edge of the signal and city of lights arcs were great. If it had just kept up as a sort of morally ambiguous episodic iyashikei like Jinrui or Kyousogiga, it would've been fine. And of course, if Yamakan had kept his mouth shut so people didn't love to hate him so much.
