    Greant Anime with an Interesting story
    Broken Blade has all ingredients to become a great anime. The battles are epics and the characters as always in great anime, having friends fighting for each side is a great idea and I can't wait to see more episodes.

    Great mecha series that doesn't miss a beat
    The animation style is very clean and the at times gritty which suits the mecha and western influences. Story line is great and leaves you wanting even at 60 minute episodes they seem like a normal series length. Audio isn't over done and sound effects seems familiar which could easily be over the top in a mashup style anime.

    This is the type of series I'd suggest to someone who loves the mech ...

    Starts good but really needs more...
    Broken Blade was interesting. It tempts you into thinking its going somewhere but never does. As it starts you are introduced to versatile characters. They seem to develop early but as it goes on not much changes. Music and voice is great. Artwork is good. Although each is one hour, they are surprisingly not very in-depth. The action is paced well, so that makes up for it.

    My biggest complaint ...

  • Broken Blade? DmC Rating: Ssadistic!
    Need to watch this again...my review's too short.
    Love this anime, love the manga!
    Broken Blade felt rather unique to me as the characters are more down to earth compared to most titles, which is fine for me either way.

    Characters
    > Rygart Arrow made for a great protagonist without comparing to other anime heroes.
    > Other characters, nothing to say right now until I watch this ...

    Amazing, yet short and sweet.
    Came into this seeing only the first couple episodes of the new anime series, did some research and found this. After watching all 6 episodes, I am amazed by how good this was. If this went any longer, I think it would've lost its charm. Can't wait to see how the new anime turns out.

    Broken Blade proves a point.
    Broken blade is a decent anime, but it is done in hour-long segments rather than the usual thirty. This changes a lot of things that in my opinion actually hurt the show.

    For one it leaves out a lot of character development in almost everyone besides the main character. Some parts of the story are also just thrown in and never really developed. Broken Blade despite these things was still quite ...

    A story of Love, Betrayal, Hardship and of course, Mechs
    Now before I begin I must say that this movie series is by far the greatest the mech genre and even the real robot subgenre has produced with my judgement including the heavy hitters such as Gundam, Fafner, Rahxephon, Gurren Lagaan and countless other shows. Here's why:

    Animation:
    The animation is, as one would expect, movie quality. However the level of quality is unparalleled with most other ...

    Broken Blade, An Amazing Series.
    This series of 6 40 minute short films packs a heck of a punch. So much of the story develops each episode and keeps you wanting more. The story is in depth and has great meaning about life, choices, and decisions we must face along the road of life, albeit I will (sadly) never have to decide to go back to my farm or pilot a badass mech and save a kingdom. This show will be thoroughly enjoyable to ...

    6 episodes, 1 hour each
    Pretty good anime. Kept me entertained throughout. Good characters and action scenes. Well worth checking out. Since these are more like films, you can watch one a day as they don't really end on cliffhangers like some anime tend to do at the end of an episode.

    Can't get enough!!!!
    At 10 PM this evening, I was wrapping up some homework, when I decided to browse a little. I was looking for Gundam Wing, and happened upon Broken Blade. What started off as a chance meeting, quickly turned into an addiction. By episode three I thought, "Well, I'm half way there! Might as well finish it!" The brief nature of the series means that it's jam packed with action, drama, and mech suits ...
