I would like to see this since it's from the people who created Queen's Blade which I own a Blu-Ray boxset of. Hopefully there will be ripped clothes like Queen's Blade. I love that Maid outfit it looks functional and kinda sexy.

With all the serious shows that I watch *cough*Legend of the Galactic Heroes*cough* right now and Sekirei Season 2 will be over at that time, I think that this serie will hit at the right time for me. Looking forward to this show mindlessly entertaining XD

"A school battle & love comedy."

Japan will put ANY story scenario happening at a school. Samurais in school? I don't think so. Screams Kampfer to me.

Looks hot, might have to check it out. Definitely like the character design, at least.

Oh my head this looks silly. I'll watch it because I haven't seen anything as good fun as Queen's Blade in a while.

I'll definitively give a chance on this, I liked so much of the character design of Queen's Blade, though the anime don't ended very well. I hope this project keeps the same art style with a better and funnier storyline.

And of course, a lot of fanservice must be expected for this, so for the non appreciators, It's not recomended at all.

Hobby Japan is the creator of Queen's Blade franchise - thus, expecting fanservice from this anime.

This two posts sum it up IMO
