IIRC the manga does some things a bit differently(just a bit though) but it still goes on after this. There are quite a few chapters. I actually stopped reading in hopes that there would be a continuation as an anime but I'm not sure if that's going to happen.


Ah alright thanks for the info man, I will try to get on it later...but atm I think I would prefer it animated so that I can get a better feel of the emotions, but I highly doubt that is happening anytime soon with just looking at the view count.

So since this was a remake....and it has been a long time since the original was made, zero chance of continuation right?

I was expecting that this re-edit of the movies was to test the waters and/or drum up interest for a possible second series.

Calling it a "remake" doesn't seem correct as it was overwhelming composed of the same material as the movies, but "re-edit" doesn't really fit either, as there was some new footage.

Broken Blade (2014):

My Mood:
Belligerent.

Endorsing.
Fanboying.

That was a solid series, 2.8125 out of 5. I'm going to go track down the manga presently, need to find where it diverges.

... What?

Overall, it was actually better than I had thought but I had to rate it down a bit since it was mostly a recap. Might go back to watch some of the movies though.

The manga is still ongoing right now with over 70+ chapters!

Dude, solid series gets a 2.8, you sure are strict lol. Yea there are quite a few chapters after the manga. I should probably get back on it as well. I'm just really disappointed they probably won't animate the rest of this series because...... well he's obviously gonna get better as a pilot and I want to see that animated dangit. The action is deliciously good in this series.

Something about the characters felt... weightless... I'm not sure how to explain it, it was good but I gave most of the episodes average scores. It creates for an interesting atmosphere but the story wasn't long enough to see through the character arcs to the point where that would've become fully realized as an element... or something...

No below-average scores though, it was consistently good. It just never really pushed itself to the next level, I thought.

A second cour would've done a lot.

This was also a safe show to watch around other people, so for two of the biggest episodes there were peripheral distractions. If I correct for that it brings it up to a 3.025, and a 6/10 feels right to me. Maybe a 6.5/10 with decimals.


Anyway, there's a lot of new stuff in the manga starting around chapter 27, if others are thinking of picking it up.

Narvi cut her hair! I am despondent.

I actually felt like re-cutting it kind of did the series a disservice. and I continue to believe that the new OP/ED was also a huge disservice.

but, I also haven't seen episodes 8-12 yet. haven't been motivated enough to do so, especially since episodes 1-7 have absolutely no new material yet, and I always felt that the last 2 movies were the weakest ones because that's where they start to rush things and cut content from the manga. a 2 cour would have done the series much more justice than a 1 cour or the 6 movies could do.

I also would love a 2nd season for the continuation, but I don't want to see it done yet because the series hasn't reached a good point for the 2nd half where it could end as an anime and feel complete. that being said, just go read the manga. it's pretty great.

Oh man, the siege is so much better in the manga. Holy shit.

Anyway, not diverging into manga talk except to say anyone who's interested should definitely check it out.

After you view the movies, I would be interesting in reading what percentage you believe was actually new material.

From what I understood, I would be surprised it it was enough to equal a single episode.

Just wait man it's gonna get really good soon, after you get past the anime part. There's so much good character development imo. Although admittedly, I stopped in hopes that maybe this might get another season.



You guys are impressing me with you're optimism. I just doubt this series is gonna continue any further as an anime. I don't think this is gonna sell too well either cause you haven't heard a lot of news about it this season. Cay is right, just look at the page count, not too mention the view count for this show.

so did this end differently? I watched like the first 3 episodes and they were pretty much cut and paste from the movie version so i didn't really finish the tv version.
