Synopsis

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.

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.

The way the producers used the art in combination ...

Review to self:

Plot: the plot progression was so slow and almost tiring to watch. Nothing out of your ordinary mecha style story line. It would have been much better if it ended with zess reuniting but I guess there's probably another continuation somewhere on the Internet. There's so little detail about other nations apart from the fact that MC is going to war because his friends nation allowed another nation to pass through them to invade their neighbours. Shallow plot leaves more to be desired

Art and design honestly loved the quality added in this anime, animation was so smooth with characters being finely created. I ...

Titles do not usually hold much - if any - meaning. But in the case of Broken Blade, which is better known in Engrish as 'Break Blade' (BB), the title refers to the broken blades visible on the head and back of Rygart's (the lead & pilot) robot. The titular broken blades also - symbolically - link into Rygart's character. One of the two things they symbolise is how broken as a person he is in Break Blade's universe due to his "unsorcerer" (can not manipulate quartz / use technology) limitations. The other is how mentally broken he becomes as he goes from being pacifistic ...
