Not so long ago as a part of A TINKERBELL RECOMMENDATION!!!
I recommended Koihime Musō
as a show that should be watched because it has so many strong female characters (mainly because 98% of the huge cast is female) well it's time for a show that I view as one that can be viewed in much the same way as most of the large cast is female as well, it results in strong female characters, yuri-ism, giant boobs and very little clothing, ladies and gentlemen, you have entered one of the most prestigious tournaments in Gainos, this is Queen's Blade
Alright guys I know that a lot of people hate this show, I dunno why, maybe the lack of story, maybe the amount of fanservice, or other reasons I don't know, but people tend to not like this show from what I gather, I for one love it mostly because as said there is a most female cast which means I don't have to suffer trough male character being a perv or being retarded and abused by the female cats, but anyways.
Queen's Blade has three shows, the first show Queen's Blade: The Exiled Virgin
released in 2009 the sequel Queen's Blade 2: The Evil Eye
and the latest show Queen's Blade: Rebellion
which finished airing May this year.
Queen's Blade: The Exiled Virgin Plot
Queen's Blade 2: The Evil Eye Plot
In a land where a queen is chosen every few years solely by winning a tournament, there can be no short supply of formidable opponents. For one woman warrior however, an early defeat clearly shows her that she is lacking in experience though she may be bountiful in body.
Fortunately, while defeat could spell one's doom, her life is saved by a powerful stranger. But unfortunately for this savior, less-than-pure motives and shrewd family members mean her reward is a prison cell. Her release is prompt when the unseasoned warrior she saved, tired of her current lifestyle of nobility, sets off to prove herself.
Queen's Blade: Rebellion Plot
In the city of Gainos, Reina the vagrant warrior enters the competition of Queen's Blade to decide the new queen of the continent, but there are a number of obstacles in her way, each with their own reason for fighting.
Annelotte a wandering knight quickly become involved in an insurrection against the increasingly corrupt nobility and fanatical Church as she and her growing band of fellow warriors fight to bring about justice and set right what has gone wrong.
So the main theme for this show is action, a tournament between female warriors all set to become the next queen of the country, pretty much everyone have a different objective, some wants to save the country from declining, others just wants the power that comes with being queen so there is bound to be some conflict between the different contenders. Now there are some rules for the whole event "The contestants need only be older than 12 years. They need not be human, intelligent or even of that country. The rules for the tournament are simple: murder is allowed. Any weapon can be chosen. The winner is decided when one of the participants flees or can't move anymore."
The art is great, background is well made, action scenes are awesome character designs are pretty much flawless with the many different characters we get to know through out the story. Voice acting and the sound in general is top notch with every voice actor doing their job well and the music going from calm to action middle age style. The Story is pretty simple once you get to know all about the tournament because that is pretty much what it mostly revolve around the tournament to become queen but due to the large amount of characters it ends up jumping around a little and it gets hard to follow up on the different people.
Much fanservice I will warn you about, the characters are not dressed in much and what counts for amor probably wouldn't help out much if it came to a real life fight :P and of course since most of the characters are female instead of your romance plot we mostly get yuri stuff to deal with, but that is just a thing you will have to accept with an anime like Queen's Blade, tits and fighting. Not that that's a bad thing
So there you have it, I'm your nostlgi-wait no.....just thank you for your time guys hope you can't use this, got you interested and you'll enjoy what you see.
Before I forget, we are about halfway into this season of anime, I wanna know what you people are watching!
