My theory on doppels:

So far so good. The world is interesting enough that my interest is piqued. Lets hope there is more creativity to come.

Review:

Noitamina, how boring - you might just have the two best shows of the season again.

Just like everyone else, one look at the animation and you already know the obvious just how influenced the show is. From the laid back setting to the character designs the Ghibli style seems to radiate in all directions. For all of Yamakan's drama he's still a kid at heart it seems.

I agree with Enzo though. 2 of my 3 favorite shows this season is on NoitaminA, almost unsurprisingly. I seriously should pick up where I left off on the manga.

Blog post and comments later.

I almost feel like I watched Aria, it gives the same feeling. Maybe with a touch of Hayao Miyazaki as well.
Looking forward to seeing more of this series.

Yamakan mentioned on Nico broadcast that his biggest inspirations indeed were Nadia and Laputa, so...

This is like Dennou Coil, but so far without the mature themes, the suspense, the right pacing, or the unique premise. Seems to be a show targeting kids without any pretensions of a deeper show underneath and is fine remaining relatively shallow. The pacing is very Ghibli-esque in that it has that quiet and lukewarm style akin to elevator music. The art is very generic and simplistic looking, even more so than its influences. I thought it would be different, but they still manage to shove in a hackneyed staple of mainstream ero anime everywhere, the boy being embarrassed at seeing a naked girl and acting like a complete fool. I've just watched at least two anime shows newly aired with the same freakin scene. The fall season was exceptional in its lack of non-dumb anime. The winter one seems to prolong that trend, with zombies, harem mecha high school dramas, bouncing boob and panty shots, and main male characters completely devoid of personality except for their allergic reaction to women and their good-boy naivety.

I almost didn't watch this show -- I hadn't read anything about it, and reading the short synapse about it wasn't all that intriguing, but I decided to give it a shot anyway.

SO GLAD I DID.
Spoiler:


It's too early for me to say anything (even though I just did), but I really like the premise shown thus far. I really think I will enjoy this series to the fullest. I will say though, the ED moved me. It was beautiful, warm, and touching.

This series is definitely a keeper.

[edit] I'm also genuinely interested in seeing the reactions of those that criticized the anime before it was ever even released. Some of the criticism seemed to be based on some pretty silly bias, but I think it's an undeniable fact that this turned out much, much better than a lot of the people anticipated.

[edit 2] am I the only one that felt Phryne's outfit was totally taken from Ragnarok Online? As soon as I saw her, before I even knew anything about her, I was like "eeeeee RO priestess!", and...!

This is going to be good. Given all the hype around Fractale, I had somewhat high expectations going in, and so far they are being met.

I quite like it, especially for the Ghibli feel it has going for it. This could totally work as a series from the 80s, though it's a shame the trends we're used to seeing in shows this days are all over the first episode. Hopefully they won't take complete control over the series, as we begin to learn more about the setting and plot.

Totally loving that score. Out of all the Winter season shows, it easily has my favourite one.

Oh and I guess the ship the trio are riding on = Gratan

It's kinda amusing how the henchmen kinda resembles sanson and hanson...
Fractale Trio

Hanson

Sanson(with Marie)


and like I said earlier the piano score reminded me of this particular Nadia BGM: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xogffEJzUiI

I just finished the episode(yeah I only watched half of it earlier) and I can see some differences in the manga. Nothing drastic I just wonder why they made Phryne took out the part from the trio's ship instead of Clain.

Overall I liked the first episode and I'll prolly finish this cause of the nostalgia caused by many similarities to Blue Water. I just hope it turns out really good like Nadia.

^ I think Pheyne's dream/nightmare was a really important scene and might suggest something in the manga.

I kinda forgot that there was such a scene.

I feel like an idiot for not knowing this sooner. The animation in the OP makes perfect sense now.

I've watched 7 titles so far and this is the most boring of them. Maybe ep 2 will be better now that the redhead has arrived.
