  • 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 ...

  • 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.
