The official website for the anime adaptation of Yunosuke Yoshinaga's Broken Blade (Break Blade) alternate-world robot manga has confirmed this week that the anime will be split into six films that will open in 2010. The second trailer for the project will be unveiled soon. Flex Comix publishes the manga in Japan, while CMX Manga will publish the second manga volume in North America in December.
CMX Manga gives the following description of Broken Blade's story:
Rygart Arrow is 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.
