    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.

  • 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 ...

    Excellent anime, finally a great mecha that I can recommend!
    Great anime. Finally an amazing mecha to watch! Highly recommended, think about it, 6 1 hour episodes is like 12-16 22/30 minute episodes. It is great.

    The only downside was its never explained how he got the quartz voice to work, I assume he got a "primitive or ancient" microphone.

    - Cheers

    Probably the best anime CR has
    Yes, is THAT good.

    Amazing OST, outstanding animation, gorgeous character design, engaging narrative, compelling action...

    Broken Blade is virtually perfect.

    Too bad ends on a cliffhanger.

    Great premise, but you can stop after the first three episodes
    Broken Blade gives us a very interesting and unique world that's based on a "technology" that makes it very easy to believe in what's going on. The political landscape is nuanced and intriguing, and the main characters present an interesting combination of complex relationships that make it hard to know who to root for. Enter into this the "Broken Blade"...an ancient weapon that upsets those ...

    You're in for a surprise!
    I came into this like any other mech loving, cheesy anime line adoring fan, but this show changed that. By episode 6 you'll be craving more, it was a rash ending but had a great build up all the way through. From the excessive amount of gore, to the love triangle you don't really understand. Its a must watch and hopefully a continued anime down the road.

  • Started watching.... couldn't stop
    I expected another boring stereotype mech anime, I was wrong. It was amazing. The action scenes were my favorite, but the character along with everything else made the story what it was. Highly recommended
