|On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly. If you are interested in taking over the site's code and data, contact administrators at tviv.org. --CygnusTMtalk|
Scryed (2002–2003), sometimes s.CRY.ed or s-CRY-ed, is an anime series that shares several similarities with X-Men and other superhero books of the same sort.
The series is set some time in the near future following a geological phenomena that is often referred to as "The Great Uprising" in Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan. As a result, less than 1% of the population born at the location of the Uprising was born with an Alter power which allows them to reshape matter at a molecular level. The manifestation of this matter reshaping, however, is unique to the Alter user.
Unlike X-Men, these Alter users do not face the kind of persecution that the mutants are known for. Instead, users are broken into two opposing forces, the Native Alters, who live outside of society and cut ties with the government, and HOLY, a government organization made up of Alter users. HOLY is a subdivision of HOLD, the police force of Kanagawa Prefecture (or "The Lost Ground"), who are a special operations group that assist HOLD in dangerous missions. The plot is focused by the rivalry of Ryuhou and Kazuma, a member of HOLY and a Native Alter (respectively), and express the clash between the two groups in simpler terms.
