In the continent of Cruzon, an impending war between the Kingdom of Krisna and the nation of Athens is brimming. The people of this land are able to use quartz for whatever purpose they desire. Yet one person, Rygart Arrow, is not. He is an "un-sorcerer," a person unable to use quartz. But this characteristic will enable him to pilot an ancient Golem, one strong enough to put up a fight against the invading army of Athens.

Broken Blade it is then.Well in my opinion the specific anime is the most underrated of the past spring season.I will be more specific below.

Story:7--Its not nuclear science thats for sure but it solid nontheless.The 3 main protagonists(Zess rhygart and Hord) are connected with a deep friendship coming along the way from the past.The people of this continet(Cruzon) use quartz to move mechas except Rhygart, who gets to operate an ancient golem(aka mecha).Unexpectedly Rygart and Zess will confront each other in the battlefield serving different countries(even though rygart isnt a soldier)

Art:9. The art is simply fantastic.As a fun of mecha animes, i am a harsh read more

Break Blade is one of those animes with a lot of potential. Unfortunately this is just a "12er" (only 12 episodes), and this is just not enough to develop a deep story and profound characters.

The strongest part of this anime however is, without a doubt, the art, animation and sound. It is just incredible. The highest quality you´ll probably ever see in a mecha anime. A lot of details, colours, special effects. The mechs are a 100% hand-drawn, yet they still look better than any other made with CGI.

The way the producers used the art in combination read more

> Both are about mechas
> The MC in both have a special mecha,that can take over the enemies
> Both have nations that fight one against the others with the mechas( Athens and Krishina in Broken Blade/Arandas and Ingelmia in Shirogane no Ishi)
> Both talk about political aspects and make a reflection about the life
Besides the mechas used, they share similarities with the story and it starts off with an impending war between two nations/worlds. They are very political and have a stronger second half to their respective stories. Both have really good fight scenes with Break Blade having much better animation while Nobunaga the Fool uses CGI for it's mechas but in it's defense at times it really blends well with the visuals. The main character only share two things in common, and that is to fight for the greater good and protect their people.
