Product Overview

The next state in human evolution has arrived. After a cataclysmic event has transformed the Japanese landscape, several humans have developed special powers and abilities; these humans are known as Alters. A special organization consisting of several of these Alters is created in an attempt to control those living within the desolation known as the "Lost Ground."

Kazuma has spent his entire life in these wastelands relying on his special powers to survive, but when "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!

Editors Note
Note An environmental catastrophe turns a once-stunning city into a wasteland. Though survivors re-build the city, known as The Lost Grounds, some of its citizens suffer birth defects from the massive radiation. Known as Alter Users, they possess superhuman powers to transform into other forms of matter. Banished outside the walls of the city, the Alters live in the ruins and fend for themselves. An organization known as Holy hopes to cleanse the area of deformed creatures, but Kazuma, an Alter, must choose between the ways of Holy and lifelong imprisonment.

ReviewSource DVD Verdict
Review The best thing about s-CRY-ed is the sense that it is building towards something. Many animated series ho and hum along until a freaky third act comes out of nowhere. s-CRY-ed is somewhat formulaic, yet moves with purpose. Even the five episodes on this DVD show a progression. HOLY reveals strife within its political factions. Kazuma does some soul searching, finds a weakness within himself, and seeks to alter it. The Alter Users explore different sides of their power. People actually talk and seek to understand each other...s-CRY-ed is hampered by goofy alter-power manifestations (watermelons? hello!) and moments of melodrama, but manages to maintain a sense of tension. If you like action but Dragonball Z isn't your cup of tea, check out s-CRY-ed.
