''Fractale'' is an 11-episode {{shounen}} anime series directed by Yutaka Yamamoto (series production director of ''[[LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya]]'' and director of ''Manga/{{Kannagi}}'') and produced by Creator/A1Pictures and Ordet.

Revolving around a futuristic era in Ireland where the world's source of order--the "Fractale System"--has begun to fall, a fourteen-year-old boy named Clain [[BoyMeetsGirl meets]] the [[MysteriousWaif mysterious]] Temple priestess Phryne being pursued by chance and rescues her. He takes Phryne back to his home and tends to her injuries, but as quickly as Clain [[TheDulcineaEffect begins to bond]] with the girl, Phryne disappears the next day, leaving behind a brooch for Clain. A female [[ArtificialHuman Doppel]] named Nessa appears from the brooch, and Clain and Nessa both go in [[IWillFindYou search of Phryne]] while uncovering the secret of the Fractale System.

** In the beginning of Episode 3, Clain wonders how Nessa can be so carefree after they had gotten captured by Enri. Moments after they are released, Clain gets in excited {{fanboy}}-mode when he sees a bunch of antiques, culminating in an instance where one of the guards has a rifle trained on him, and Clain's reaction is, "I can't believe he's still using an optical sight!"
