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.

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
