Fractale just started airing in Japan (lucky for us, Funimation is simulcasting the series, with episodes appearing just hours after premiering!). The first episode was nothing at all like I expected, which isn’t entirely a bad thing.
One surpring element in the first episode had to do witht he idea that the Fractale system had become a god in society. Not only reminiscient of organized, state-required religion (there are similarities to Islam in religiously conservative countries like Saudi Arabia), the system also reminds me of North Korea, where the divine leader is even projected as part of a triune God – Kim Jong-Il is the “son,” his father (and the first leader of North Korea) is the “father,” and the state is the “holy spirit,” if I remember correctly.
Ghostlighting of We Remember Love goes into further detail about the religious ideas (and other themes) from the first episode. Take a read!
