Holly Ellingwood writes: "Fractale is quite the thought provoking series. Rather than feeling episodic in nature, the 11 episodes feel more like one full and rich film. The tale shows the viewer a world unlike any we know. People live in almost near isolation. The Fractale System helps ensure peace and tranquility through the use of digital beings called doppels, among other methods. The system has worked for 700 years, but one young man, a teen named Clain, is about to learn that not everything is as content as it seems."
