    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 ...

    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 ...

    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.

    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 ...

    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 ...

    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 ...
