    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.

    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

    Xenogears meets Escaflowne
    This story reminded me of the universe that is created in Xenogears: Ancient technology and massive weaponized humanoid machines uncovered and retrieved from a time lost to human knowledge. Aside from that it is a story unique to itself. Humans have evolved with the ability to use "magic" however only to the extent that they can manipulate quartz (what all technology and machines are currently ...

    Interesting background story, lame execution
    I had high hopes for this when I saw it listed. However, after watching the series, I felt that while the story started out rather interesting, the execution fell flat on it's face. Once the protagonist is introduced to the story, we get background knowledge of him going through military school, having friends in military school (although many enemies due to something I won't spoil here), and ...

    Always wanting more...
    I have little interest in mechas but broken blade has changed the game...

    The duration of each episode had me skeptical at first because usually long duration times mean boring character building....but let me tell you that with this series there is not a single second wasted. From animation/action to characterization, you will never release a sigh of boredom or disappointment.

    The fights ...

  • Anime Original Ending
    Some of the events in this show diverted strongly from the manga, and not for the better. As a result, characters and their schemes have become more shallow. The final episodes were especially disappointing.

    New Twist on MeachAnime
    I loved this entire series!

    Plus, best of all, the differing characters were completely believable even though they showed both sides of an ongoing war at the same time complete with casualties and the fallout the results from that.

    So many people portray soldiers as superhuman killing machines that just follow orders but the truth is when faced with combat (plus speaking as someone who ...
