  • 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 ...

  • This was Surprisingly Good
    Usually a purist when it comes to anime genres, I was surprisingly entertained with this series. It had a good storyline and strong characters on all sides. It added a dash of "Tech" to the mix, but not enough to ruin the feel of the world. I'd watch more if they make them.

    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 ...

  • Loved it, a great mecha anime.
    The action was intense, the story was a bit odd at times and seemed to jump around but was easy to follow. The main character took me a while to warm up to, but the supporting cast was filled with interesting folks, although sadly they weren't all fleshed out very well. I recommend this for any action or mecha fans.

    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.

  • Review: Broken Blade
    I really enjoyed this anime. The battles were really good and I liked how there was conflict between having a really close friend on the side your fighting against. At some parts it was frustrating that they couldn't just become friends or switch sides but they all had there reasons. But that conflict allowed us to see what the both sides were going through. I felt that was very realistic. My only ...

  • AMAZING! I love this show!
    At first I was skeptical if i would like this anime. im not a mecha person. HOWEVER i though 'its only a few episodes i have time to kill why not?'
    I FELL IN LOVE with the opening song. the lyrics are amazing and heartfelt!
    THEN the story line caught my attention. A reluctant hero fighting for his friends is usually always a good plot line.
    I am Amazed by this ...

    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 ...

    Starts good but really needs more...
    Broken Blade was interesting. It tempts you into thinking its going somewhere but never does. As it starts you are introduced to versatile characters. They seem to develop early but as it goes on not much changes. Music and voice is great. Artwork is good. Although each is one hour, they are surprisingly not very in-depth. The action is paced well, so that makes up for it.

    My biggest complaint ...
