    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.

    SHOW YOU ABSOLUTELY NEED TO WATCH
    This show has a great plot a poor farmer becomes the hero then it puts random and good timed flashbacks and that takes up half of the show. Old friends are turned in to enemies and the cruel reality of this show the people actually die other shows don't have this so i would recommend watching it.

    What's that? You need a new anime? Well I got one, right here!
    Originally, I wasn't much of a mecha anime person. Other than Evangellion I had never looked into or watched another anime like it. However, some how I got to watching the first episode and instanly I was hooked. This anime doesn't over kill on the mecha stand point of things and actually has a story that goes beyond fighting in a giant robot. No, this anime's storyline is much larger than that ...

    Y E S S S S S WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE
    Oh my god this anime is so badass!
    Like jesus, what more can you ask for when it's pretty freakin detailed, got some interesting characters, some that you will BEG to die, badassery, a hilarious main character, and a touching background for the character's friendship.
    I was kind of expecting to get a little teary eyed when he went to the village, but naaaaah I was filled with the same ...

    Really pleased to find this
    On the surface a standard fantasy mecha, but it handles complex emotions better than a lot of other anime out there. There are moments that were set up like so many other cliche plot beats, then a twist is added though a few are delayed. This was one of my favorites that I've seen recently.

    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 ...

    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 ...

    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.
