The official website of the Queen's Blade franchise has opened a special page for a new mix-media project on Friday. Titled Queen's Blade Unlimited, the project will consist of a figure line and a new anime featuring a new story with world and character settings roughly remaining the same. Unknown Games' Shinya Oosaki (Tokyo Necro, Hanachirasu visual novel) is redesigning the characters, centering on the theme of "coolness and sex appeal."

Based on Firelight Game Company's Lost Worlds gamebook, Queen's Blade is a series of visual combat books first published by Hobby Japan in 2005. The series received its first anime adapatation by studio Arms in Spring 2009, titled Queen's Blade: Rurou no Senshi. It has since been adapted into two additional TV anime, four OVAs, four manga series, three light novels, and a video game. Media Blasters distributed the first two seasons in North America, while Sentai Filmworks released the third season and the Queen's Blade: Utsukushiki Toushitachi OVA.

Of all ecchi anime they could make a sequel of, the worst one got it, jesus christ.
Why not Dakara boku wa H ga Dekinai got a sequel? Or Keijo? Or might as well Seikon no Qwaser? Why Japan why?

Queen's Blade gets a new one and Ikkitousen doesn't?! C'mon!

One of my most hated ecchi shows geta an anime. Welp. Actually if it is a different staff then I will probably watch it but I highly doubt it.

For those that likes it then good for them at least I will say this.

I guess I'm the only a bit happy for this.

Queen's blade just has good looking girls with ecchi, why complain? It's the only reason why I watch it.. Oh and swords too. Story meh... But it's not the story that gives me an erection.

A bit disappointed there no sequel to Queen Blade rebellion, but still somewhat happy with this news as a Queen Blade fan. It was a fun junk food fan service show with Queen's Blade: Beautiful Warriors ova being the only one that I would actually defend that it was good, while the rest were fun for what they were, but at the same time nothing special.

So looking forward to it even though I was hoping for them just to make a series with the Queen blade grimoire story that had some really neat concept.

Hell yeah this is the series I needed, all this weak ecchi can't even compare with my thirst.

This is the show for real duds.

Also uhh where did tentacle rape come into the picture? I'm not particularly a fan of that either though..


Because every other chapter of TLR Darkness features tentacle rape or some other kind of molesting and you have that show in your favorites.
Ah

Well that part of it is not why I like it. My reasons for that are a bit more complicated than it just being a fanservice series. Would take a while to explain though so I'll leave that for now. I might do a review of it once the manga ends next month if you're somehow interested but yeah

I know that girl was the extreme example lol

The point is that girls fighting each other with their tits bouncing everywhere etc is just mindless and dumb and not sexy whatsoever to me so I don't really care about it. By no means does that just go for Queen's Blade but essentially any ecchi/action show which does similar things (like Highschool of the Dead for example, also pretty crap). Forcing fanservice into scenes with a completely unerotic mood is just facepalm-worthy

Also what is more common has nothing to do with this. In my mind characters actually doing sexual things to each other can be sexy whereas just suggestive shots and naked skin is not. Well that and also how much you like the characters obviously

In any case this is just #opinions in the end, no need to try and debate this


That's fine if you don't like this kinda show, but there's a huge difference between saying "Not my thing" and going "WORST ANIME EVER" and the second is much harsher and invites negative discussion. Especially if you haven't watched the show, because then you just look like you're trolling even if didn't mean that.

And again, you can call this "eroticism" but that's not true. Half of Darkness is random baths and random nudity excuses and the other half is random tentacle rape. Yet somehow it's fine and dandy because they aren't fighting...? Call it bias against battle fanservice shows if you want, but don't try to act high and mighty for disliking sexy girls in sexy clothes when you're endorsing tentacle rape manga.
Well I don't think I need to point out that I'm speaking from my own opinion alone because that should be kind of a given (objectivity is a myth). But yes Queen's Blade is in fact one of the five full-length TV-series I have as low as 2/10 on my list (1s are only for ONAs and shit) so I do actually consider it one of my least favorite anime of all time. Now granted I will admit that I don't remember all of it because it was actually one of the first anime I ever saw (first 2 seasons at least, dropped it after that) but I absolutely hated it back then at least

Also uhh where did tentacle rape come into the picture? I'm not particularly a fan of that either though..

I guess I should finally give this anime a try. I'm just a bit disappointed that boobfest ecchi get sequels and stuff I like (eg. Kiss x Sis) doesn't :/

Yeah its quite sad that kissxsis didnt get more episodes, the stuff that happens later in the manga is quite intriguing to say the least :/

Feb 18, 2017 6:22 AM by Robiiii

Queen's Blade is my #1 guilty pleasure anime of them all, so I'll always welcome more; especially after the high production values of Grimore.

Y E S

I've loved this series so much, I was hoping for another series since rebellion and YESSSSSS

Feb 18, 2017 4:57 AM by Xenocrisi

Thats good news. I hope this will a full TV series, and not just OVA

]Don't get me wrong, DxD is pretty crap too. But at least it didn't have girls with boobs the size of planets that made me want to throw up

Really though mindless action/ecchi shows where the fanservice just comes from busty girls in skimpy outfits fighting each other 24/7 is about the bottom of the ecchi barrel


So one ridiculous character=the entire cast? Way to stereotype things. You just proved to know nothing about the series.

Also, if you bothered to watch the series and not judge a book by its cover you would know Queen's Blade has a solid likable cast, decent action, nice plot, and the fanservice has more effort put in it than most shows.

And certainly better than To Love-Ru Darkness ever got, that show only cares for random breasts and molesting girls. Generic schoolgirl harems are even more trite than sexy fighting girls will ever be. You tell me which is 100x more common.
