For those who don't know this books, Queen's Blade is a series of visual combat books (some kind of table role playing) published by Hobby Japan based on the licensed works from Flying Buffalo's Lost Worlds.

Plot of the game revolves around a tournament called the Queen's Blade, which is held every four years to determine a Queen.

The succes of this books gave as result a full franchise.

An anime adaptation was broadcasted a couple of years ago (currently counts with two seasons of 12 episodes and 6 ova), mangas, novels, figures, etc.

An also a sequel of the game was created, called "QB Rebellion" meaning more books... and a new anime is cooming soon.

Inside QB franchise there is also a series of books called "Queen's Gate" that features characters from games and anime such as Tekken, Samurai Spirits, Seikon no Qwaser and, of course, Soul Calibur.

Ivy, Taki and Phyrra made her apparence as guest in this series.

Saw the first episode of season 3, I think they are trying really hard to make an actual plot out of this. Dunno how well they are gonna succeed though.

Everything that look well in first episode were wrong in second episode. They already forget the plot and gone for tentacle rape and masturbation with snake swords

Also, I'm sorry but there is a new book relevant for this forums

IMHO author should apologize for doing such bad art, and right owners apologize for giving their seal of approvals to this.

I thought she was cassandra when I 1st saw her. the hair looks weird.

just found out Annelotte is Aldra's sister, I wonder if Annelotte is adopted or if Aldra was actually royal gone missing to search for her sister.

damn, they finally revealed swamp witch, and she looks good
http://queensblade.wikia.com/wiki/Welveria_the_Swamp_Witch

plot points I wish the anime tackles on
- the complete plan of swamp witch, why she blinded tomoe, cursed leina, region locked the elf girl, and made deals with cloudette
- why leina didn't return to her kingdom after cludette fell
- the reunion of annelotte and aldra and some backstory for their past, were they orphans? was annelotte adopted?
- why ymir became evil even though she was normal in the rebellion prequel ova
- the clear role of tomoe and maria in the rebellion that the story book didn't reveal
- the explanation of annelotte's berserk mode even though aldra doesn't have it

1.- why leina didn't return to her kingdom after cludette fell
2.- why ymir became evil even though she was normal in the rebellion prequel ova

Well those two points are already clear.

1.Because Leina has narcolepsy due to witch curse so she doesn't have the power to opose the queen
2.Money, Ymir was a greedy bitch since the beginning. You could consider her the classic "neutral merchand/mad scientis". She wasn't became evil she was already evil (greedy to the point she dont care the others as long as she gets what she wants) now she just have more means.

well Reina could just go home, I don't see Elina fighting her, and I don't see Claudette not at least having an audience with her. they are still family afterall. I don't see Reina as the aggressive type to strike first without properly understanding the situation first. she believes in the best of people afterall, and this is still her family we are talking about.

anyway, I look forward to berserk annelotte next week. how many episode is the rebellion series? it's one season only right?

Just be patient guys...Rebellion will last long(longer then the previous QB Series)
And no..its not an "1 season series"..there gonna be many surprises this time...

the previous queen's blade series were unnecessarily long. season 1 didn't have shit happening for half the season. way too much reina focus and it grew old fast. season 2 was more or less the same for the 1st half and then they just got lazy and just spammed dragon tail all the way near the end, talk about plot armor. most of the individual interactions are also corny as hell.

rebellion should be longer because there were many unresolved subplots from previous series that have high chance of being resolved in rebellion. I find the dialogs to be somewhat better and not as fake as before.

btw, where did you hear it's not going to be 1 season? I only see 13 episodes listed for one season and it's saddening because things are actually looking decent.

Well, the resason of existence of this series is merchandising, I doubt they do only 1 season. Well get at least two seasons plus ovas, like the first part of the series.

BTW anyone else finds LunaLuna second personality (Sun dancer mode) annoying as hell?

This show is terrible, as are most shows of it's kind. The only thing it has is a huge budget so the quality is pretty good.

There's already multiple seasons and OVAs of this show

Well, I think this season doesn't have much budget, so its pretty lame in technical terms too. The designs and the HD make it look good on "static images" but action scenes are quite low in animation.

I share tyour opinion, most shows of it's kind are terrible. The worst thing is the idea that it could be better. Well, of course it could never be a masterpiece but only making the series a bit more...I don't know, serious, it would be...less terrible.

Qwaser. Ikki Tousen, Maken Ki, Hikken Chou, Freezing, QB...all have the same problem, you see the first one or two episodes and you think "great may be is stupid but it has sex, action, blood, drugs and rock and roll!!!" but then it becomes only "bad puns about tits".

Well i believe that any show of any genre CAN be fantastic, it's just hard. This genre makes it even more difficult.

But most of these shows all try different things. For one, and i believe QB does this part right, is understand what you are and go all out. This show is an all female action show with clothes being torn apart at all times SO there should be nudity, don't try and do this random shit covering the body stuff. Ikki Tousen tried that and even they eventually brought out the nudity 3 seasons in, so just go for it.
Qwaser took everything a step further and made the sexy perverted stuff part of the story, yet tried their damndest to keep it serious which worked for a bit, especially with the shows high quality and good fights, but at some point you can't keep a straight face man.

All that being said i think something like Sekirei does it best where they don't blow everything on the budget, yet still have a high quality show, great fights which IS important for an action show, nudity when they feel like it but not overbearing and is both serious and lighthearted. Good mixture overall for that one.

I was actually at Otakon in Baltimore the first time I saw that episode in one of the theaters in the convention center. The whole audience busted out laughing when she squirted those things. When they blew up they erupted, I just sat there with my mouth open and "WTF?!?!?" ringing in my head as I tried to make sense of what happened. O_o :)
