  • 2017 Here! Disapointment...
    2017 Here! production has been canceled and finding this out this late is the most crushing to find out about this anime. This was truly the best anime i have ever seen in my time of watching these series. Just really relating to the main character so much in the fact hes just generally laid back and very honorable while everyone else is so broken.

  • Awesome Fantasy Robot Anime!
    The only problem with this show is that it ends so soon. The animation, music, characters, and plot are all excellent. The setting is particularly inventive, and the magic system is incorporated into some great action sequences. As I said, I wish that this show continued.

  • Not just another mecha anime.
    I honestly only watched it because I had ran out of things to watch, so my expectations weren't very high since I'd never even heard of this show before. I was blown away. This show is full of action with a well developed plot as well as excellent character. My only beef with this show is that 6 episodes fly by in the blink of an eye.

  • A short ride, but a GREAT one.
    Well written, wonderful world that is explained without too much exposition. A world that feels compelling and a good cast of characters. If it wasn't so short, it could have become my favorite anime ever. But with only 6 OVAs it is a short visit through a wonderful world.

    Wow! Great alternative to Gundam!
    This series is not as short as you'd think. With each episode at nearly an hour, plus minimal recaps, this 6 episode series should easily be counted as 18 instead.

    The quality is spectactular, acting is awesome, story is interesting. I don't know this, but I suspect this show was born when someone with too much money threw it at someone with too much talent!

  • Characters, Plot, and Action Well Orchestrated Together
    Surprising depth and complexity in the storyline plus character development. Lots of action with mechs in battle. But why they're in battle and the politics behind that gives context. Really good detail in the animation overall from landscapes to city scenes to closer shots. Reminded me of the anime movie Akira from years back. Watching Broken Blade was more like seeing vignettes from a ...

  • Greatly enjoyed this series, what part of it there is at least
    Though there are some plot holes and just plain oddities this anime is a fantastic watch. The fight scenes however simple are great the "science" behind the series makes sense as far as anime science can go, and I believe this anime combats a lot of cliches in most animes.

    Only problem with this series is that as of the writing of this review is not truly finished and as it stands now won't be ...

    cliched and by the numbers but the RIGHT numbers
    Hot mech on mech action? Sign me up! If you're a fan of the mecha genre you can stop reading this review and start watching Broken Blade. It follows the typical mecha formula of our protaganist is a failure of a golem (their mecha) pilot, due to the fact he can not use magic. Magic is the ability to manipulate quartz enabling one to use mecha. All advanced technology requires magic, so Rygart ...
