Break Blade
Part 6

ブレイク ブレイド BROKEN BLADE

Type: Movie
Genres: Action, Fantasy
Release Date: 26 March 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.

On the next day, as Noeru comes back from work, she finds a chubby little boy sitting on the floor and peacefully munching a pack of rice crackers. The next morning, she wakes up at the delicious smell of breakfast waiting for her on the table... but she does not recall of having cooked any! And isn't the kitchen all clean and tidy instead of the usual mess? And aren't there two weird kids in her room now? Noeru has just met the drawer hobs... but who are they, and why on earth are they in her apartment, anyway?
