The aftermath of a mysterious environmental catastrophe has left the land in complete desolation! While mankind has been able to rebuild the city, the catastrophe has caused some humans to undergo genetic mutations granting them special powers and abilities. These genetically enhanced humans are known as Alters. Kazuma has spent his entire life in the wastelands relying on his special powers to survive, but when a secret organization called Holy threatens to take away his freedom, he will be left with a choice to join or die. His fight to seek the truth behind the Holy will rage and consume humanity and Alter alike!
Twenty-two years earlier, the Kanagawa region of Japan was devastated by a major earthquake; the most seriously damaged area was the "Lost Ground." A small percentage of the inhabitants are Alter Users, people with the psychic ability to manipulate matter and create alternate mecha forms of themselves. Hot-tempered, red-haired Kazuma is a powerful Alter who defies authority. His attitude brings him into conflict with HOLY, the special police force recruited from the Alters. Kazuma, whose Alter is robotic fist, defies Ryuho, a martinet whose mecha fights with ribbonlike tentacles. Their duel is complicated by the arrival of Mimori, a brilliant physician who believes in compassion and equality. Although most of the characters are interesting, a few too many appear in the first episodes. Well-paced and well directed, s-CRY-ed ranks among the more original anime series of recent years.

S-Cry-Ed is a really cool nicely drawn, more serious anime. They have comedy, but lucky for me, and other Hardcore Anime goers, they keep it 2 a minimal. Read morePublished on Feb. 12 2004 by David Skipper
This anime has to be one of the better ones to come out this year. What I like about it is they took a chance on doing something a little different. Read morePublished on Sept. 26 2003 by Vgwizardx
I watched a lot of anime but this one brought no one certain charm to me. It has potential (small but some) but i don't see it as really good. Read morePublished on Sept. 1 2003 by Mrs. J
