I had heard some good things about this Anime so had it pre-ordered and watched it on release day. 4 months later I finally finished it. This was not because it had a Naruto/Bleach amount of episodes, far from it, there are only 6 50 minute episodes, it was because it was so dull.
The characters are all bland and fit into their stereotypical roles, and aside from the action sequences - which are very well done - there is nothing there of real note. Storyline is basic at best, the script has no real substance and the voice used for the main character in the English dub doesnt fit at all.
The Bluray does look great, but it's certainly style over substance and pales in comparison to Evangelion, Gunbuster, Code Geass, Giant Robo and loads more I could mention. Broken Blade just falls flat on every level bar the battles and the animation. If you love anything Mech related maybe push it to 3 stars, but I like to care why people are fighting and have some interest in the outcome.
