Break Blade episode 6 (finale)

After 6 episodes, 50 minutes each of grizzled mechs duking it out in a desert, sprinkled with high council drama and Queen Sigyn’s radiant ass, Break Blade reaches its thrilling conclusion.

Broken Blade (Break Blade) episode 1

Kara no Kyokai had an unusual release format. Each ‘episode’ was up to and over an hour long, released in cinemas first and later on dvd and blu-ray. The series was a huge success and I’m guessing took anime producers a bit by surprise. The actual importance of having anime on TV is declining, especially […]
