Hana-Saku Iroha, Fractale Anime Promo Videos Streamed (Updated)
posted on by Egan Loo
The official website of the Fractale anime is streaming a 30-second preview video and a 15-second television ad. The story is set on an island at the far reaches of a continent where the "Fractale System" is on the brink of collapse. A boy named Clain embarks on a journey to search for Phyrne — a girl who disappeared, leaving behind only a pendant. Clain will eventually learn the secrets of the "System."
Kannagi and The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya's Yutaka Yamamoto (a.k.a. "Yamakan") is directing the Fractale television anime series at his studio Ordet. Also involved are otaku scholar Hiroki Azuma (as story developer) and series script supervisor Mari Okada (Kuroshitsuji, Toradora!). Mandelbrot Engine created the original story. The illustrator Hidari (Uso-tsuki Mii-kun to Kowareta Maa-chan light novel) is creating the original character designs. The series will premiere in Fuji TV's late-night Noitamina timeslot in Japan on January 13, 2011.
