22 years ago, a bizarre uprising occurred in Japan's Yokohama region, destroying civilization, killing many, and causing the area to break off from Japan's mainland. This region came to be known as the "Lost Ground". Over the years, some of the citizens managed to erect a new city in a corner of the Lost Ground and surrounded it with a barrier to protect it from the impoverished inhabitants of the island's surrounding wasteland. However, another phenomenon began to show up in the Lost Ground: Alter, the ability to rearrange matter at the atomic level in certain ways. "Inners" who were born with Alter powers became known as Alter Users, and Alter Users who lived outside the city and misused their powers were branded "Natives".

s-CRY-ed is one of those series that you're just not quite sure what to think of in the beginning. You are thrown into the middle of a world where you have no idea what's going on--and despite your instincts, you're really not sure who the bad guys and good guys are! For a long time, I only had the first 5 episodes available to me, but upon getting my hands on the entire series, I found that I couldn't quit watching. The story is intriguing, and the writers did it just right so that as one episode ends, you absolutely must watch the next episode to know what happens next, or to get that new twist in the plot.
If you like action and a thick story mixed with it, s-CRY-ed is definitely worth a look-see. It is one that will leave you on the edge of your seat, eagerly awaiting each episode. It also sticks to the story--there aren't any filler episodes that aren't attached directly to the storyline. Watch out, though--you could find that characters you like and dislike constantly switch places. That's what makes it so fun to watch. Check it out!
