Anime Download: Queen’s Blade: The One to Inherit the Throne Anime 07 MAY 2010

Now that the female warriors have all reached the capital of Gainos and seen off a last ditch attempt to stop them courtesy of the Swamp Witch, the Queen’s Blade tournament can finally kick off in ernest.

Alliances and friendships need to break and reform as the warriors slowly get paired off against one another and as the unforgiving battles ensue, the greatest prize of being selected Queen of the continent still sits firmly in each’s mind.

Reina, the wandering warrior continues her quest to become as strong as what she possible can, but unbeknownst to her there is more to this tournament than just what can be seen on the surface. Sinister forces are on the move, and the current Queen is already plotting to oppose them… however she may not exactly be quite what she seems!

Season 2 of Queen’s Blade, entitled The One to Inherit the Throne (Gyokuza o Tsugumono) or The Evil Eye in the official English adaptation, consists of 12 episodes and saw the light of day in 2009. As with the first season, it sits firmly in the ecchi realm giving us more buxom, underdressed girls in g-strings swinging their weapons at one another and to be honest, they’ve gone and pushed the “let’s see what we can get away with without being labelled pornographic” envelope even further this time around, with the sentient fire staff Funikura’s “punishment method” against its bearer Nyx being a great example of this.

So it’s nipples, swords and sorcery once again, but with a decent amount of intrigue, mystery, drama and story to carry it through and make it not a complete waste of time.

It is surprisingly good but you’ve got to watch it and forgive the fact that there is a lot of blatant fan service that is going to be shoved in your face, making it perhaps a show you are not going to be enjoying with your significant other!

But if you are curious and want to see with the Queen’s Blade saga is heading, I’ve done some searching on the file download sites like MegaUpload and Mediafire and have come up with this handy little download list:

Anime Download: Queen’s Blade: Wandering Warrior Anime 23 APR 2010

Every four years there exists a major battle competition known as Queen’s Blade that attracts female warriors from across the lands, held at the capital of Gainos and which was created in order to choose the continent’s new Queen.

It is a honour to participate and a must if you are seeking power, meaning that the world’s best warriors soon find themselves onroute to this prestigous event.

But not all warriors come with enitrely noble ideals of course.

Elsewhere, the Count’s daughter Reina Banshu is young woman dissatisfied with her current gilded life and the solitude she experiences by being trapped behind her father’s citadel’s walls. Eager to test her mettle with a sword and follow in her sisters’ footsteps, Reina seeks to leave the safety of her confines and become a real warrior, but the path that she has chosen is a difficult and dangerous one…

… and it doesn’t help if you start out your quest by going after one of the deadliest, shape-shifting assassins in the Swamp Witch’s employ either!

The first season of Queen’s Blade entitled Wandering Warrior (Ruro no Senshi) consists of 12 episodes and is a good mixture of a fantasy setting with some magic and sword-slinging tossed in. There is loads of action and fighting to be had, as well as plenty of humour and just that little bit of drama and intrigue to accompany it, but of course as most people out there would know by now, Queen’s Blade is pretty much all about one thing…

Loads and loads of unabashed fanservice shoved in your face and down your gullet, complete with uncovered nipples, loads of g-strings (snakes as panties anyone?), and girls wetting themselves. So definitely not a series for your kids then, and probably not one you should be watching in the company of a partner that you wish to impress.

However, it caused quite a buzz in Japan and on the Internet when it launched in 2009, making it a particularly popular hit – even if half the channels showing it had to HEAVILY censor it. But of course the uncensored epsiodes soon saw the light of day thanks to the non-controversy shy channel AT-X and so after scratching about on Megaupload and Mediafire a bit, here’s a download list of the first season of Queen’s Blade: Wandering Warrior that I’ve managed to locate on these file download sites.

Just in case you were curious of course…

(C’mon, who wouldn’t be curious of a pink shapeshifting swamp demon who squirts acid from her breasts at her enemies!?!)

Screenshot Saturday: Queen’s Blade (Episode 11) Anime 27 MAR 2010

Screenshot Saturday time again, and this week I’ve got a couple of snaps from the fan service loaded, Queen’s Blade anime series for you!

Dodging lightning attacks in anime appears to be quite the simple task!

Episode 11 of the naughty ecchi series Queen’s Blade treats us to an all out battle between the Vagrant Warrior Reina and her sister, Lightning General Claudette. Of course for the most part the powerful, lightning wielding Claudette has the upper hand, but that all changes when Reina finally gets all fired up and unleashes the most deadly weapon in her arsenal – the Dragon Tail strike (conveniently learned last episode in case you were wondering).

Her finishing blow catches Claudette completely by surprise, but in a shock twist it gets revealed that Claudette managed to prevent the strike from killing her at the very last second by swinging her sword up right in front of her – though the damage to Thunderclap is absolutely devastating!

Needless to say, the idea of then unleashing a powerful lightning bolt through it as her counterattack was definitely not one of Claudette’s greatest ideas! :)

With that look of determination you had better brace yourself for one hell of a hit!

The Dragon Tail. Reina's finishing move and probably not something you would normally employ against your own sister...

Screenshot Saturday: Queen’s Blade (Episode 1) Anime 27 FEB 2010

Shape-shifting assassin Melona versus the Wandering Warrior Reina is the focus of today’s Screenshot Saturday, deftly grabbed from that much talked about anime piece of fan service swords and sorcery title, Queen’s Blade…

Got milk? (Yeah, I'm not going to try and explain it either O.o)

Queen’s Blade, the extremely naughty battle fantasy show that somehow made the jump from tabletop game to anime series. Today’s screenshot chronicles one of the most ridiculous/preposterous superhuman abilities I’ve yet to encounter in anime: the ability to lactate acid!

Anyway, episode 1 kicks off with a disguised Reina, the nomad warrior (voiced by popular seiyu Ayako Kawasumi), confronting Melona (voiced by the equally popular seiyu Rie Kugimiya), the shape-shifting, magic-wielding witch who has the ability to take any physical form and can create and manipulate any sort of physical object out of a self-generated pink liquid – and who also has the dubious honour of possessing the most preposterous attack ability ever created by man!

You see, she forms two hands out of her hair which she can manipulate with her mind, and these two hands, well they’re primarily used to grab her breasts and squeeze, squirting out a powerful acid that is capable of melting even metal!

Yeah. From the writers who have their main characters wet their panties quite often, it’s no wonder this idea got okayed off the storyboard! O.o

Interestingly enough, when Melona's acid hits a girl, all that seems to disintegrate is the girl's clothes - go figure!
