Break Blade/Broken Blade

Plot Summary

The manga is centered around Lygatto, an “un-sorcerer” born into a world of people who can use magic. These people can make quartz do many things, but Lygatto is one of the few exceptions; Lygatto cannot use quartz, making many aspects of life difficult for him, yet this un-sorcerer ability allows him to pilot an ancient, yet effective, mecha against the invading army of Athens.

Lygatto is forced to make a choice when he is first asked to fight by his friend who is the king of the land and his other friend Zesu; all three went to the same school for learning how to use magic and pilot the mechs.

Broken Blade Fantasy Robot Manga Gets Anime Green-Lit (Updated)

The official blog of the Flex Comix publisher has announced on Wednesday that an anime adaptation of Yunosuke Yoshinaga‘s Broken Blade (Break Blade) alternate-world robot manga has been green-lit. CMX Manga is publishing the first volume of the manga in North America this month.

CMX Manga gives the following description of Broken Blade‘s story:

Rygart Arrow is the only one in his world who lacks the inherent ability to power up quartz, the energy source that makes all of the machines run. Nevertheless, he’s pretty well connected. The King and Queen of his country of Krisna happen to be old college friends. But so is Zess, the guy who is leading the army of a neighboring kingdom in an attack on Krisna.How did it comes to this? There’s little time to ponder the implications as an army in giant, mechanized battle suits attacks. Arrow just feels like he’s in the way – until he comes across a powerful, ancient mech that no one has yet to be able to figure out how to run. But his natural affinity for the suit’s operating mechanism may just turn Arrow into the most important player of all.

Flex Comix has published over 400,000 copies of the manga’s six current volumes. The wraparound jacket band on the sixth volume will feature the anime’s announcement when it ships on Thursday. Flex Comix’s blog promises to offer more details about the anime in future updates.


As a fan of its manga I find it amusing and exciting cause I was so trilled and hooked up to it’s story and I hoped there would really be an animation of this, and it willbe a huge success!!!
