"Queen's Blade: Beautiful Warriors" falls into the category of fantasy action adventure with a very significant degree of ecchi content. The OVAs are essentially sequels to “Queen’s Blade: The Evil Eye”.

This is a review of the Blu-ray version of "Blade & Soul" released by Sentai Filmworks in 2015. It was viewed with English voice overs.

"Blade & Soul" falls into the category of fantasy action adventure.

Parental Advisory:
The age rating on the Blu-ray case is listed as MA (meaning 17+), though that rating may seems a bit too high.

This is a review of the DVD version of "Sacred Blacksmith" (Seiken no Blacksmith) released by Funimation in 2011. It was viewed with English voice overs.

"Sacred Blacksmith" falls into the category of fantasy action adventure with some minor elements of comedy.

Parental Advisory:
The age rating is listed as 17+. However, this is absurdly high - the show's content does not merit this high of an age rating. Two or three of the episodes include some very brief scenes with female topless nudity. There is combat violence in several episodes, but it isn't overly graphic. As a result, this show would read more

This is a review of the DVD version of "Cleopatra DC" released by Media Blasters in 2002. It was viewed with English subtitles.

"Cleopatra" falls into the category of action with some sci-fi elements mixed in.

Parental Guidance:
There are a few very brief scenes with female semi-nudity. The dialog includes some profanity. There is also a significant amount of violence, but nothing graphic. Overall, the content is roughly on par with what one might see in a typical summer action movie rated PG or PG-13.

Story: 7/10
The series includes three episodes, the last of which is almost as long as the first two combined. read more
