s-CRY-ed (スクライド Sukuraido?), also known as s.CRY.ed or Scryed, is a 26-episode Japanese anime TV series, produced by Sunrise, directed by Gorō Taniguchi and written by Yōsuke Kuroda, which first aired in Japan on TV Tokyo and Animax. (Source - Wiki)
Plot Summary: A strange environmental phenomenon 22 years ago in the Kanazawa prefecture caused the land to split and protrude upwards reaching unprecedented heights, creating the secluded area known as The Lost Ground. Kazuma is a young mercenary who lives in the Lost Ground, looking for any work he can find to sustain his livelihood within the harsh environment. He is one of the few people that are gifted with the Alter ability, which allows him to plaster his right arm and torso with a metallic alloy. When this mercenary encounters HOLY, an order whose purpose is to suppress and capture what they call Native Alter Users, and one of the elite members of HOLY, Ryuho, an epic rivalry begins.

Also, they explained, like, NOTHING! What the hell is an 'alter?' It was like a cheap rip-off of FMA, with his fake arm and stuff! I really wanna know that all that crap is about...wow, I got angry just then didn't I?
First off how can it be a rip off of FMA if it came out way back in 2001? By your stand point Fma is ripping off Scryed. Oh and it's only the first epsoide, so, why would they tell you what an 'alter' is, there is something called holding information so the viewer is surpised. It's not a fake arm.
Here is summary for you kiddies who haven't seen the series.
Got this from Anime Info.
In the near future, an unexplained phenomenon has occured on a distant island called "The Lost Grounds", giving birth to a new species of human. These evolved humans, called Alter Users, can manipulate matter and reform (or alter) it into unique forms. On this remote island, those born inside a walled city are citizens, while everyone born outside live lawless lives in the badlands. In an attempt to keep the peace the police force HOLD along with the elite alter-user squad HOLY capture dangerous native alter users and offer them a choice... join HOLY or be imprisoned. After young native alter user Kazuma's run-in with HOLY, questions arise. Is HOLY really interested in the good of all, or is there some other motive behind their actions?
