Fractale (フラクタル) is an 11-episode Japanese anime television series produced by A-1 Pictures and Ordet and directed by Yutaka Yamamoto. The anime aired in Japan between January and March 2011 on Fuji TV’s Noitamina programming block. The story takes place on an island resembling a 22nd-century Ireland (certain scenes are taken directly from Galway, a city in the west of Ireland), in a world ruled by “Fractale”, a satellite-based virtual reality and content delivery system which ensures mankind’s stability and prosperity. One day, Clain meets a fleeing girl called Phryne, who disappears during the night leaving a pendant. When he is able to activate the pendant (which turns into a “doppel” named Nessa), Clain sets out on a journey with the girl-shaped avatar Nessa to look for Phryne and discovers the secret behind the Fractale System.
