Break Blade - Part 4 (Blu-ray, DVD)
ブレイク ブレイド BROKEN BLADE

Type: Movie
Genres: Action, Fantasy
Release Date: 25 February 2011
Official Website: Here

The 6-part anime films Broken Blade / Break Blade are adapted by Production I.G and studio Xebec, based on Yunosuke Yoshinaga's fantasy-mecha manga. The story follows Rygart Arrow - 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.

Except in this derranged story, it rides a living motorcycle instead of a horse, and comes to Japan in search for its stolen head.

Great job, Sodeq! :D So sorry that my news post will be pushing this down in a couple of hours ><

Btw, shouldn't Houkago no Pleiades be on this list too? :)

Anyway, I'm looking forward to Macross Frontier: Sayonara no Tsubasa and Durarara!! 25 so much! *____* I hope the new songs in Sayonara no Tsubasa are better than the ones in Itsuwari no Utahime -.-' InoU's songs were so disappointing coming after the great songs from the main anime run.
