  • Childhood Classic Forever
    I watched this when I first started to get some taste in anime. Definitely, a childhood classic in my opinion, loved it and still do. As to why it has not been finished I still don't know as I'm sure the anime community would love this series as they always have.

  • High Quality Mech Series
    I really enjoyed this show. It's really made up of 6 OVAs, and due to that episodes are longer that 20ish minutes, but it does make it so each episode has more weight and consequences.
    I highly recommend this show for anyone who is a fan of mech series. The main characters and their struggles with duty, honor, and morality are front and center in this show.
    My only real complaint is that some ...

  • 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 ...
