Ok. I searched the forum, and didn't see a topic about this.
Anyways, Adult Swim started to show this anime last night, at 12:30pm. i wanted to know if anyone saw it.
I thought it was pretty good. I was a bit confused, but I'm looking forward to seeing the next episode.

Let's discuss s-CRY-ed! smile.gif
Fresh_Coffee
:3 I watched the fan-sub last year.
mei_tenshi
What is it about? I saw maybe two minutes of it, but couldn't stay up. =_=
Jen_Elric
Ummm..*sweatdrop*...it's hard for me to explain. I only saw the 1st episode, so I was hoping someone who saw more of it, would expain it for those who never saw it.
But maybe not many saw it. Gah...I feel kinda stupid for putting this thread up. Oh well... sleep.gif
lialiakicks
Oh, I saw the whole series fansubbed...

The only problem is I saw it waaayyy back in 2001, when it first came out. And I only saw each episode once, which is unusal for me. So my memory will be quite hazy. Sorry. =_=;
Zarpia
My brother told me that it was a good show, but i haven't seen it yet
Dustydevil8809
i watched about ten seconds. it looked boring so i changed it biggrin.gif cool.gif
~Pride~
What is this S-cry-ed and what is it about?Looks kinda dumb dry.gif
Hagane no Renzy
I saw the entire first episode. In my opinion, it sucked...baad. ANYONE notice *it's hard to notice, mind you* that Spike's voice actor ONCE AGAIN plays the main role!? This guy is SO overused!!!

-Spike, Cowboy Bebop
-Shishio, Rurouni Kenshin
-Roger, Big O
-Mugen, Samurai Champloo
-Whatever his name is, s-CRY-ed

Jeezus...

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. smile.gif

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?
Jen_Elric
Thank you so much, FreshCoffee, for the summary. I understand it a bit more now.
I will continue to watch it, cuz I have a feeling that it will get better. I mean, when I saw the first episode of Samurai Champloo, I wasn't really inpressed, but after seeing the second and third episodes, I really like it now.
But, everyone has their own opinions. I watched it cuz it was a new anime (for me at least), and also cuz FLCL was after it. happy.gif
Dark Alchemist139
I watched it. It was confusing and it didn't explain the story or what the hell an altar is. It was cool I guess. I'll keep watching it......no wait......maybe.....yes,no,yes,no.....ok i'll watch it but they better explain it more.
Hagane no Renzy
Yah, I'll give it more chances like I do all animes. Sorry for exploding Coffee. tongue.gif

first of all you are all noobs, an altar user is just like a super sayian in DBZ, AND it is NOT a rippoff of FMA, if you even paied attention to it then u would realize that and STOP DISSING IT!!!! the animation is very well, the story so far seems neat and dont judge a book by its cover

Perhaps you should explain your point if you want everyone to understand that the anime is as good as you say it is.

my point was to tell them to stop acting like noobs and find out all the info first. i was pissed off when i heard people putting down s-cry-ed a very good show that people just need to look past the meaning of it

And you're not acting like a n00b by putting down everyone who disagrees with your views? If you're so willing to prove everyone wrong, then go ahead and prove to us how great S-Cry-Ed is.
ἀρχή
I'm getting fed up with this.

Ok, put the damn show down! Who cares. The first episode was probably wierd or confusing anyway. I now never want to see this show in my life due to this annoyance!

How do you like that. My decision was based on nothing more than an emotive irrational response. Get used to it as it's the way most decisions are made. I expressed it here because this is the thread for S-Cry-Ed and I want to express myself thusly.

If you don't like it, criticize me or piss off tongue.gif
Jen_Elric
Dude! First off, I created this thread to TALK about the show, not FIGHT!
Maes-Hughes, STOP PICKING FIGHTS! Some people have their own opinions so SHUT IT!

There. HOw do you like THAT!
And don't call me a nooB.
Sorry, but you really pissed me off. mad.gif

I was just annoyed with MH and wanted to be an ass about it.

I still doubt I'll check the show out anyway.

The show kinda of reminds me of X-men with the mutants and stuff. :3 If you are into that kind of thing.
Luckyalchemy27
Now, this is just me, but I thought that it sucked. I was bored throughout the entire thing.

@Maes-Hughes: Not everyone needs to like the same animes. You don't need to be so uptight about it.

Oh, hey, btw, how do you pronounce s-CRY-ed? Is is pronounced how it looks, or is it "sacred"?
Jen_Elric
Arche, I'm not mad at you. I think you're cool! happy.gif
I'm fed up with MH. And I agree with Lucky.

I don't care if People say they don't like or won't watch an anime I want to talk about (the real reason I made this thread). They can do what they want. That's the reason behind message boards.
And, isn't flaming against the rules?

yeah i thought it sucked too, but you never know
as for the name... i don't know dry.gif mabey there was already an older show called "sacred" so they made it different to avoid copyright
ymsg
I liked the first episode. I didn't understand it, but I thought the animation was pretty good. I'm going to look into it. As for the name, I have NO idea how to pronounce it @_@
Rikku
i geuss i'll give it a second try, after all there isn't any other anime to watch.
ymsg
Heh, amen to that.
Jen_Elric
The second episode was a bit better than the first, but I hope the show picks it up. I'm beginning to lose interest...
~FMAgurl~
I've only seen the second episode. I agree with Coffee. It did seem A LOT like X-men. blink.gif
Karo
I would have seen it, but it comes on at 1.
very late, but i think I recorded it.
ymsg
I was drawing and not paying attention. I'll catch Thursday's rerun.
Maes-Hughes
i watched first 2 episodes so far, i like it, then again i like almost all anime
foolmetal alchemist
I saw like half one episode and this show is straaangge... But I still like it of course. The guy who alters the cars is weird. He's one of those over excited crazy men isn't he? laugh.gif
Fayt
The show is funny.
How many episodes of total are there supposed to be?
Jen_Elric
The show is ok. It's getting better. I like Kazu-kun. He'll never get caught by Holy (I mean, again.). happy.gif
But I am mad that [AS] put this show on before Paranoia Agent. I'm too tired by the time PA comes on now!! mad.gif
Hughes_ImissYou
I watch it when I'm watching TV. Right now I'm sick now playing comp and watching T.V. I like Kazuma's Alter too ^-^ laugh.gif
~FMAgurl~
I liked Saturday's episode. I thought it was really sweet that Kazuma took out an entire truck just for Kanami. His alter power is so awesome!
WhiteMike
I just saw the first 4 episodes a couple of minutes ago and they were amazing, confusing, but still amazing.
T_M_C
wow i was starting to get worried until i read fresh coffee's response i have been following this series on "on Demand" for a long time i didnt know not that many people watched it any way it is a very good show it starts off a little slow but wait until Kazuma and Ryoho (probably spelt that wrong) but the other really strong guy on this show get into their little scuffels then it gets intense really quick

-T_M_C
heavensangel
i think it is a good anime and if you watch it from the start you will understand it

[rant]Okay, first off, do NOT call me a n00b, because I am most certainly NOT one. N00bs are people who degrade others for bad reasons...*cough* example is above. I'm truly sorry that I said it was a ripoff of FMA, for I simply did not realize that it was made before.[/rant]

Please, please excuse my rant. I felt obligated to stand my ground and I would've felt regret if I didn't.

On another note, like I knew would happen, s-CRY-ed is very enjoyable now that I'm past episode 1. I'll be sure to keep watching it!
~FMAgurl~
I thought this would be a stupid anime at first, but now I love it! Especially Ryuhou and Kazuma laugh.gif
Zabimaru
I love S-CRY-Ed It is now one of my favorites..Saturday's episode was so thrilling..
Karo
yeah, It's one of my favs too now. He got a new power, it was so cool.
Celestial Shadow
I liked episode 8(?) the best happy.gif But 9 was cool as well.
Jen_Elric
While it's not one of my faves, it's pretty cool. My fave character is, of course, Kaza-kun! happy.gif

Zabimaru, I love your IY avatar!! It's so cool!
auntaun
I love s-CRY-ed!!! I have seen every episode so far and love it. My favorite character would have to be Ryuho, Although Ayase is interesting too. I am more into it than I thought I'd be. It didn't sound very appeasing, but it turned out to be an anime show I really enjoy, and I stay up way late, just to see it!!! Don't diss the s-CRY-ed!! happy.gif tongue.gif
xMartelx
I love that show!!!!!Even though I've heard people say bad things about it, but when I look at it, there's really nothing I'd say that I don't like about s-CRY-ed. biggrin.gif

I hate Ryuho >.< Ayase is interesting though...And I kind of like Mimori (sp?) and Kazuma as well biggrin.gif At first, it looked really boring to me, but I decided to give it a chance out of boredom and I really like it.
edsgirl
I liked this one too, but man when [spoiler] Kimishima, sp? dies [/spoiler]. That was just too sad! But still a pretty good series.
