It's basically common knowledge that most people would actually buy Queen's Blade for some laughs. Either that, or because it gets them hard. It's no complex matter working out why such a show has high sales, right?

It's basically common knowledge that the majority of the people buying Queen's Blade are the fans of the original board game, which is as popular in Japan as, say, Dungeons & Dragons or Warhammer in western countries. It has nothing to do with laughs or hard-ons. They buy it because it's a part of the franchise they were following for years, and I'm kinda tired to explain that to every single ignorant person in every single thread related to Queen's Blade.
That's rather sad to tell the truth. Buying everything from a franchise, regardless of quality, is not exactly being smart. But I guess Japanese (and geeks in general) are like that. You're welcome to take a shot at my "opinion".

I'm eagerly expecting the information about Higashi no Eden sales next week. To have some laughs, you know. XD

I'm shocked that Queen's blade is on the list...WHY????

BOOBS + LULZ
That's what the internet is for. You don't buy bad hentai. You just download it.
yeah but it's funnier if you actually own it, because then you can laugh about how you paid money for it. I don't do this, I'm just saying that that's probably the reason so many people bought it.

And again we start the "OMFG QUEEN'S BLADE OH WHY AND HOW THIS SHIT SALES SO WELL?!" crusade...
Really people, you all should just stop trying to make yourself look like a hardcore intellectual anime gurus (mostly because you aren't and won't ever be until you stop making such ridiculous comments), and mature at least a bit.
And if you don't know why people buy Queen's Blade, you could at least read what people who know were writing in numerous threads before.
