Rygart Arrow is an 'unsorcerer,' one of the few (one in a million) people completely lacking the ability to use the quartz stones used as an energy source for everything in this world.

This status has made him an outcast and an object of scorn, leaving him unable to work machinery, fire a gun, or even light a lamp without aid. His father had desperate hopes that sending him to a military academy might awaken some power in him after all, but no such miracle occured. Rygart has since since become a farmer on the isolated outskirts of the Country of Krisna—but the friends he made while he was there, and the loyalty he has towards them, is about to change everything.

Two of them now sit on the country's throne, and when they summon him to the capital he discovers just how sheltered his life has been—Krisna is in danger, war is about to break out, and the conditions for surrender put forward by their enemies are impossible to meet. An elite unit of enemy troops is already launching attacks on the capital—an elite unit led by their old friend Zess.

What is Rygart supposed to do when his inability to use quartz leaves him utterly useless in the face of the battle that looms ahead? When he stumbles into a powerful and ancient mecha that the quartz-wielding people of Krisna have been unable to use, he may just have found a way to stand amongst them... but when his friends are on opposite sides, where does that truly leave him?

This is my first review so i don't know how well it will go. Break Blade is a must for mecha reader alike. It incorporates everything a good manga should, its got a good plot, and it seems to be well thought out. The manga focuses on Lygatto who is the main protagonist of the story. I personally like this manga because its mecha and i love all thats mecha, it only helps that it has a good story line and such. I cannot tell you guys much or I would be spoiling, so if you like mechas just try it out im sure you read more

Break Blade is about a continent that is in turmoil, and war breaking out between its kingdom. Everyone uses "magic" -the ability to control a mineral called quartz- for everything, and only our hero and his little brother are unlucky enough to not be able to use it. This is an important plot point, as oil and other fossile fuels are rarer than gold. Compensated in that our hero is the only one able to use a recently found ancient Golem, this series' mecha.
The art and plot is good, but lacks character development, action and it fails to bring me to awe.

The plot is not read more

Stroy- Break blade is about a continent being rapidly ingulfed in war. the story follows Lygatto a young man born into a world of "Magic" Users it is called magic but it is just the ability to manipulate quartz to make power machinery ect. However he is a one in a million person who cannot use this ability meaning he cant drive a car, turn on a light, or pilot a mecha. Untill an anceint mecha is unearthed and through some personal connections and circumstances he ends up piloting the mecha no one else could get it to work because it didnt rely on quartz read more

Alright so here is my first review on here, so bear with me if I cover obvious points. Break Blade could be easily described as a it's name suggests, a broken blade that is not yet whole. It can be surmised as an awesome new look into Mech design with incredible fight scenes, beset on its plot,fan service and character issues. So first I'll start out with the negatives. The story and its arcing is biggest issue to address, somewhat of a jumbled tossed around mess of; "wait so what is going on now?" I believe the Author catches on later in the series after read more
