Break Blade 2 - The Split Path (2010)
ブレイク ブレイド - 訣別ノ路

Break Blade

the story continued from its first movie, Rygart who fought for King Hodr tried to find a chance to talk to Zess, his old friend that happened to be leading the enemy's troop. he wanted Zess to lead the army back to their kingdom, while Zess wanted Rygart to convince Hodr to surrender. the negotiation failed n Zess' remaining troop continued to fight by following their orders. the political issues had gotten more serious compared to the last movie, the battles occasionally gory n surprisingly engaging. hesitation during war directly resulted in death. Rygart was forced to pick a side when his first mistake was to sympathize the enemy.

it was interesting, for unlike most heroes, Rygart was the only one who didn't possessed the ability to control crystals that was able to boost their strength. he was called an un-sorcerer. between friends, he was forced to pick a side. the incrementing battle ability of Rygarts n the intense heat of the battles between Golems was the spotlight of the movie. but despite all the serious confrontations, especially how they were to deal with the conflicting direction their adulthood had taken them, there were also occasional comedy that kept the series lighter. not to mention that the ending had me eager to know where the story will be heading!

  1. I wonder if our future will be like this anime.... :/ Would we use technology such as robots to show who is the authority?

  2. "Rygart was the only one who didn't possessed the ability to control crystals that was able to boost their strength."

    I found that very interesting because I've always had a curiousity in crystal. I use to collect them because I know they do contain 'energy' from the earth, and would place them around my apartment.

    Happy Tuesday, Levian!

  3. tekkaus:
    i think not. the closest i believe we can get is like i-robot's slave-like theory? but to dominate, i think was far more impossible.

    wow, often i saw that here, people placing or wearing crystals for its energy. but i didn't expect to hear about that from other countries as well. it's cool, knowing we are not so different after all.
