THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
So... I though that this ending was kinda stupid? I thought that something was funny due to the fact the 5th movie ended weirdly with Girge's death being on his golem, instead of what happened in the manga. And for those who don't know what that is you should read through the manga to clarify.

That was incredible. I was perfectly fine with the ending, but it feels like it needs more sequels as so many questions are unanswered and the 4 friends problem still has yet to be fully fleshed out. Still, I was very satisfied with the 6th movie.

It was a complete ending but they made it really open in the end specifically saying that he still had something to settle with Zess. The fighting was pretty good, but something felt strange with him fighting against Borcuse out of nowhere. I guess the word i am looking for was a bit rushed.

Weird ending with the Rygart cracking up at least we know that the brother is safe. At this point starting to be glad they didn't do anything with the queen after they were reunited.

I was completely fine with the ending as well. Sure it wasn't great though I think most people saw it coming but that was okay enough for a 6th part movie.

Though I don't understand how Borcuse was defeated. In the final scene, he was shot on the leg part or something and I didn't know who did it. It wasn't Rygart cause all he did was throw that boomerang. It didn't look like it just broke or something.

Anyways good enough ending despite Rygart going all emo for half of the episode much to my chagrin.

8/10

I think that laugh is a laugh of relief because he thinks his brother died only to be surprised to see him alive and the first thing he does is scold him.

Add to that, being the battle over with him alive and all hence his laugh.

I seriously don't know what to make out of Rigart's little brother appearing out of nowhere at the end, plus Rygart laughing was really weird, and if you look at the faces of Sigyn and Hodr they are kinda depressed and down when Rygart was laughing at the end and then we get a fade out, credits roll. I personally didn't like the ending, they could have done much more instead of that.

Anyways first 4 movies where very entertaining and good, but the last 2 (5 and 6) failed to delivered and didn't stick to the formula the first 4 had. At least Break Blade had one of the best openings to have come out recently, and the BGM/Score was great. Overall it was entertaining but a big let down at the end.

Exactly what I though as up til 4 it kept to the original. But completely went off track for no apparent reason or trace of why they did that. Still wishing they animated the original end... If they had one, but I think they went with that ending for 5 and 6 due to the fact the manga wasn't complete?

lol I know they "won", but it was poorly executed.

What is there to be depressed about? Well the fact that both sides lost a great number of people/soldiers and that Rygart's village was annihilated.

~ Village was irrelevant. Hodr only tried to send some his troops in there because of Rygart's brother.
~ All civilians were evacuated.
~ It's a war, soldiers die obviously. Also, they are irrelevant as long as Rygart and the people close to them are safe.

Actually not all civillians were evacuated in Rygart's village. Did u not notice all the dead bodies lying around in the field when Borcuse makes an appearance in front of Rygart?

I like the part where he realises he has to kill more people including Zess. The laugh was pretty good I suppose. Time to read the manga I suppose. Cant get enough of Sigyn <3

oh god. i need to go read the manga. i think the manga would have a clearer end, but all in all this episode was satisfying. it wasn't a complete wrap up, it left it open. by the way... what did zess mean by "im going to find my brother" or something? O.o and i have that feeling that i forgot some promise that the group made before, therefore rygart said he had something to settle with zess.

I thought that the ending was awful. The episode itself was meh and I agree with others, the episodes to 4 were good and 5 and 6 were sorta......., you get the idea.
But the ending didn't feel right. With the briter popping up out of no where and seeing that they had some random uncle and that we never know what Girge said in episode 5. I got to say though, Rygart was really out of character that whole episode, it just didn't feel right and that laugh, oi. I think they made him finally snap at the end cause if you look at this face at the end, it looks just like Borcuse. I might be over thinking, which I may be, but he almost reminds me of Borcuse now.

Maybe they might continue with the series, maybe not. But in the end I better read the manga as that may do a better job to really wrap it up. But I'm glad I watched the series though.

Won, huh? They defeated the first wave of the invasion while their own army was pretty much destroyed. I'm curious how would they survive the next attack XD

What do you mean nowhere? We saw him throughout the episode, digging up some roots to get water in the desert, than checking on a defeated golem whether the pilot is alive or not. In the ending it's revealed that he wasn't even in the village when the attack happened, he set out to the capital days before and walked through the desert just like Rygart. Those two are really similar to each other :D
There's no "uncle", it an error in the translation. He was talking about General Badhr (the one with the sunglasses)
I believe Girge said "You really are an irresponsible guy" or something similar.

And I don't think he snapped, he was just relieved that his brother is alright and that they have survived while many did not.

Uuuh yeah. They just defeated the enemies main invasion force and most probably their strongest and fiercest general in Borcuse.

Also, I clearly remember a total loss and disappointment on the faces of the enemies leaders. With Zess injured as well, I don't see the next wave coming soon. Soooo yeah, it's a great win amirite? ;)

You might be right, the Athenians were waging war on Orlando previously to acquire the land in the middle of the continent, so this conquest was probably planned out of desperation.

But I still wouldn't claim that Krisna has won, only survived for the time being...

I think it really did just break off, they were fighting for quite some time after all, and his golem wasn't accustomed to such dragged out battles.

Disappointing series for me. I expected to learn more about Rygard and Zess. All of the characters felt so undeveloped. But maybe the manga develop them better.

the series were definetely great eye candy, and the story was not too shabby either. i enjoyed this series. Rygart's feelings to kill during war is definetely believable and i find it easy to relate to.
and now its time to start the manga lol.

Given the direction the movie took in the 5th movie, this one finished about as well as I could've expected. The action was great though I've got mixed emotions about Rygart's interesting weapon. Having the little brother pop up at the end was a little weird but necessary - just not executed very well. There's still all that personal stuff between the former school chums to sort out too. Thank goodness the manga is still going on.

Well ... the result is the same. It wasn't so bad but ... Frankly I am a little disappointed. Especially the last film...

Those who read the manga knows what I mean ... There was a real war story without a happy ending.

The manga is still ongoing, all in all it was a great movie series and if you know that the series is still ongoing it shouldn't surprise you that it would turn out like this.

Now, I could write a page or two about this, but I'll spare y'all and just write some tl;dr instead. ┐( ̄ー ̄)┌
First of all, dat OP is still equally awesome, if not better now than earlier. And the ED's still great too. Also the insert.

Second, and almost just as important, Narvi <3
Best character ever in Break Blade.

Oh, Rygart. You're going to get a sore throat if you keep shouting like that all the time. The two things about him that I somewhat dislike. All his shouting, and his obligatory emo phase.
Somewhat feels like he snapped by the end and suddenly went mad, suddenly laughing like a maniac.

Random; Loggin looks kinda like Borcuse. And Nile's a pretty cool guy, settling his score with Io quite fairly and whatnot.

And some last notes, what I really like about this compared to other regular mecha series like, the various Gundam series and whatnot, is the fact that this somehow feels much more "real" than those.
Not entirely sure why, but I guess it might be partly because these mechas don't fly around like crazy in space.

And it kinda sucks that CMX shut down, now where am I going to buy the manga? ಠ_ಠ
Protip: I don't really check the forums anymore, so if you want something, take it on my profile.
Is it time for my long-awaited return to the forums? щ(゚Д゚щ) Nope™, probably not.

meh... they really could've ended off better than that, but since i read up to chapter 52 it's no problem for me...

despite that they're were some similarities in the end if you look at it, showdown between Borcuse and Rygart, Borcuse died brutally by Rygart, and Rygart laughing and crying like a crazy guy in the end haha...

my only disappointment is that they didn't put any Sigyn and Rygart moment even for a a few seconds hmmmm... too bad

and anyone else think that Borcuse death was a little bit more sadder than the manga version, instead of freaky death laughing, his last thoughts and words were of his daughter

Great entertainment as always. Awesome battles, animation and soundtrack. I'm going to have to read the manga to get more answers about the story and see more of the characters though.

I'm extremely pleased with Break Blade overall. Very good.

Uhmm that was it? Guess I'll jump to the bandwagon of disappointment here, but only for a bit since the series was still great IMHO. Even though this is supposed to be the last movie, I wouldn't mind another movie though just to settle the other lingering questions in my head. Anyway maybe I'll read the manga if I will have the time just for the heck of it.

I actually missed Girghe a little for no reason at all after watching this and Sigyn, I will miss her a lot. :D

I have to say I'm pretty damn pleased with this series. There wasn't much story wise but the visuals and audio definitely made up for it. It's great to see some mecha animated, especially of this caliber. The angst wasn't overdone and the terribleness of war wasn't plastered into your face nearly as bad as some other shows Hoshi Souichirou voiced a character in.

I have to say, 8 for this movie and 9 overall. It might be the fact that there has been a severe drought of mecha and I'm somewhat desperate but overall I'm pretty impressed.

Excellent series, 10/10.
I was very satisfied with the last movie, much good facts about it.

Likes:

I've liked how Nari did a 2 hit combo and killed Io.(not really).
I've hated Borcuse in almost all the show - well, because he was a bad-guy - but i've really respected him at the ending, he was just badass. Baldr, Girge and Borcuse - favorited characters from this show.
Rygart said many times that it will continue and it's not the end. So - waiting for continue ^_~

Athens had many more golems in total, and maybe around 20 more in this battle, if you included Narvi, Baldr & Rygart as reinforcements.

If they make more of this, it should include some of the following :
- Cleo meeting Sigyn again, possibly as a diplomat,
- Zess & Rygart meeting again, possibly while fighting,
- Rygart becomes really famous in the ensuing battles
- More battles atleast, and maybe some interesting scenes eg. the civilians returning, new troops being recruited etc.

The serie had quite a few changes from the manga, but the manga is still going on, whilst this had a timed amount of time.

The length of the entire anime, was about the same as a 12 episode anime, and it would be hard to make more episodes with this material.

That's what i've got to say, but i can still hope for more episodes, even if it'll be in vain.

whats the point of having the first four parts true to the manga and then changing it. this is why it sux to adapt manga that is still ongoing and you get too close to it. this last part was not nearly as good as it should have been. totally disappointed.

I really enjoyed these movies .... but you could tell it was some kind of anime original ending and felt rushed. my favorite part was seeing that asshole Borcuse die oh and Nike dying in 5. usually I don't like when characters die but they were freaking scum. the action was still all around great.

still shocked they somehow survived that. I expected Zess to show up or something to stop the fighting .... or some kind of miracle. just like in 5 they were outnumbered and out strategized so bad so how did they survive here? seemed slopppy.

there's still so much left unanswered, I guess it's manga time? I expected Cleo to fight for Krisna or against them. hoped for more RygarXSigyn or anything with Zess.

maybe it would have worked better in a series where developments had more time to progress and things like Gen. True's death could have had more impact. it just didn't seem like there was enough time to give a whole story.

pretty much 1-4 will get a solid 9 while 5-6 would get a 7 or 8 rating. favorite characters would be Rygar, Sigyn (she's HOT), Narvi, and of course Girge (that psycho prick).
