Break Blade
ブレイク ブレイド BROKEN BLADE

Type: Movie
Genres: Action, Fantasy
Release Date: 22 January 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.

Happy new year indeed :D.

I for one am excited for Beelzebub :D

Break Blade looks like it could be good. I like the manga. Beelzebub is going to be awesome if they can translate the humor properly. I'll give Fractale a try, but nothing else really caught my eye.

Break blade/broken blade: I read all 8 volumes of the manga and I can say it is by far one of my more favourite mecha manga. The animation of it, 2 movies I have watched, live up to my expectation because it remains very loyal to the manga. It keeps the sensitive, extra-mecha scenes as they ware drawn and written in the manga

For the rest: Fractale is something I'll be watching too

As for the 2012 talk... Hey... it's closer than you think :D
