Opening animationEdit


Like Get along and Plenty of grit, Front breaking begins with a spoken-word intro by Lina Inverse. The intro features Rezo, a magical machine with gears, and a magic book that opens to reveal Hellmaster's Jar. More gears spin before the title screen.

Front breaking - rubyeye-pokota

Pokota's eye reveals Shabranigdu

Lina levitates and faces images of Chaos Dragon Garv and Hellmaster Fibrizo in both their human and beast forms and Valgarv and one of the crosses upon which his fellow ancient dragons were killed long ago. Each of these former adversaries fades away into air before they can attack Lina. Lina looks ahead to the breaking sun with concern on her face, but Gourry Gabriev places his hand on her shoulder, and she turns around, smiling. Amelia Wil Tesla Saillune and Zelgadiss Graywords appear and run toward Lina and Gourry.

A pan shot shows Amelia, Gourry, Zelgadiss, and Pokota posing.

A still shot of gears and mechanical parts is followed by a short segment of an unclothed Zelgadiss struggling in a blue energy controlled by Rezo.

Pokota's human body is shown asleep in the container in which Rezo sealed him. The camera zooms in on his eye, which opens to reveal the Ars Goetia symbol for Ruby Eye Shabranigdu, who then appears and fights Lina.

A shot of Lina posing is followed by a shot of her casting the Giga Slave. Then Lina is shown spinning around with a Fireball in her hand.

The end shot is a still featuring Lina, Gourry, Amelia, Zelgadiss, and Pocota posing.
