North American licensing company Sentai Filmworks has announced on Monday that it has acquired the six-part anime movie Broken Blade.

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. Strap yourself in, power up, and prepare for the heavy metal mecha action of BROKEN BLADE! (Synopsis from Sentai Filmworks)
The anime movie Broken Blade is based on the Sci-fi manga by Yunosuke Yoshinaga, which was published in Japan by Flex Comix in 2008. It was released in English by CMX Manga, only released three (3) volumes after the imprint was shut-down by DC Comics.
The six-part anime movie was handled by Macross 7 director Tetsuro Amino and DNAngel and Negima! director Nobuyoshi Habara. The series is a collaboration by Production I.G. and Xebec.
The series had premiered on the Philippine anime channel HEROtv last August, and was aired in Original Japanese Audio with Filipino Subtitles.
