In Cruzon, children are born with the ability to control quartz. This power allows them to levitate simple objects - or control enormous and complex mobile battle suits called Golems. But when an ancient Golem is discovered during the height of a brutal war, a young king and his beautiful queen turn to Rygart Arrow. Though an "un-sorcerer," Rygart can miraculously pilot this ancient and powerful weapon. But in war, school friends can turn into bitter enemies and allies have suspicious motives.

Ratings & Reviews
Fantasy Mecha Worth Seeing
If you like fantasy mecha shows like Escaflowne and Rayearth, I highly recommend Broken Blade.
These are 6 episode OVAs that are an hour long each (2 discs). I'm glad all the episodes are in a single package making this bluray a great buy. Since this is an OVA series, the high budget visuals are a treat to watch. The sense of physics in the mech battles are done well giving you the feel of the weight. Unfortunately, this is one those animes where if you want a continuation after the final episode, you need to read the manga where the anime left off. But at least the anime gives a sense of closure even though overarching story isn't complete. For that main reason is the 4 star rating.
The dub is actually quite decent from what I remember. There wasn't any annoying voice that made me switch to the subtitled version. Speaking of subtitles, everything seems to be formatted correctly, no misspellings, grammatical, or translation errors.
