There is a new anime adaptation in the works for Yunosuke Yoshinaga’s fantasy robot manga Broken Blade, confirmed by Yoshinaga himself in an interview with Da Vinci magazine. No further details are available so far, but stay tuned!


The series had already been adapted into a six-part anime film project in 2010-2011, directed by Tetsuro Amino (Macross 7) and Nobuyoshi Habara (Negima) at Production I.G. and Xebec. The anime has been released in North America by Sentai Filmworks.


The story as described by Sentai Filmworks:


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.
