    Greant Anime with an Interesting story
    Broken Blade has all ingredients to become a great anime. The battles are epics and the characters as always in great anime, having friends fighting for each side is a great idea and I can't wait to see more episodes.

    Can't get enough!!!!
    Me and my husband watched this the other day on the PS3 and we both agreed it is one of the best anime series by far, wished more anime series were like this. Love the graphics, a lot of detail that was drawn, the characters and the story is really good. Looking forward to watch the rest of the series.

    I really enjoy watching Broken Blade
    I watched it on a whim the other day and was blown away by how good it was. Just enough action and story to keep you watching. I also really like all aspects of the animation. I definately would recommend Broken Blade to anyone needing a show to watch.
    The show starts off a little slow in terms of explaining whats going on between the different powers. However as the show continues each episode ...

    Pretentious show with no substance or ingenuity
    This is one of those mecha shows that tries to have a unique setting and circumstances but fails miserably at building a believable world or intelligent characters. It's suppose to be pensive and moody, but the long pauses, brain-dead characters spacing out with little to no dialogue, and general atmosphere that everyone has been completely stoned out of their mind and talk in monosyllabic lines ...

    It's Good. A little different, but still good.
    As indicated in the title, the anime version of Broken Blade is a good show. The main thing that I had to pick at was the fact that I had been reading the manga. As far as a quick Google search got me, I learned that the anime had been completed before the manga was completed. In that sense, I can understand why I felt that some scenes in the anime were different in comparison to the manga. ...

    Old Style Mech, New Style Story Twist
    This show is pretty awesome. Every episode is pretty much a movie showing more and more of the developing storyline. We start off with a world that is full of magic users. Rygart however isn't one, and people constantly remind him of it. Because of his lack of "scorcery", he doesn't seem much reason to do anything for anyone. Well except for a handful of people that were his friends. The closest ...

    Mecha driven by fanservice, action, and cliche characters... Not bad if you don't think about it. 3/5
    What would happen if you transported the RX-78 Gundam into the Universe of The Vision of Escaflowne? I suspect that you would get something akin to Broken Blade, though the actual result would depend largely on implementation.

    Broken blade is easy to watch and fairly enjoyable as long as you don't think too much about it. After all, it has an underdog hero who has no place in ...

    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 ...

    Pretty good! very much so would recommend!
    I personally am not a fan of mecha animes, but like others I was drawn it. I personally really like the animation style and the fact they a 6 mini-movies to conclude the whole story. The nice thing about this is also that its very close to the manga (up until the end anyways!). The only draw back I have found was that then they deviated from the manga the ending wasn't really well done and left a ...
