Queen's Blade 2006 Winter Designs: Elina (1)

For the preferred anime direction poll, "good as it is (ecchi)" won with 27v-45%, followed by "like the books (convenient censorship)" and "full hentai" with 18v-30% and 13v-22%, and last was "should have reigned things! (books were lewd enough)" with 1v-1%.
I guess there's no pleasing everyone... funny that the censorship in the QB books seems to have come from HJ themselves, though.

And since we're with Elina now, another installment of the "X is..." polls! :3

So now we start with the youngest Vance, lots of details like Tomoe.

Enjoy!

Happy Queen's Blade 11th Anniversary!

Edit: Added a couple pics from Blitzgob.

And here we made it to another year, and QB's still going strong!

For the recap of how things are going:
-Gamebooks: Cinderella came out a couple months ago, it's unknown if there will be more Grimoires after the so-called "last boss".
-Visual books: We can assume that another Vanquished Queens might be released at one point, sure doesn't seem like it's coming soon though?
-Anime: the Grimoire OVA 2 famously announced Sigui's appearance next, we've heard no plans about upcoming OVAs though.

So uh, not a lot this year, huh? Of course, there are still figures and stuff coming out... Oh well, let's hope for more news in the next days!

And as you might (or might not) have been expecting, here's more pics from the community, as it's kind of a tradition thingie around these parts! This time we gunned for our pal Wonder Star, from the wikia, and his figure collection.
We kinda were hoping for more of a "photo op" feeling with a few of these figures of his together, but it the end it couldn't be, so here's a few individual pics on their lonesome.
If you're interested, make sure you check his reviews of the Revoltechs and the Nyx puni.

Queen's Blade 2006 Spring Designs: Tomoe (5)

On the dogs vs cats poll, "cat" beat "dog" by a small margin with 18v-35% vs 16v-31%, "love both too much to decide!" trailed behind with 10v-19%, while "like neither" was last with 7v-13%.
Was this poll a subtle reference to Claudette vs Elina, seeing as they kinda represent both extremes? What animal would that make Leina anyways? So many questions...

Now next poll is kinda related to the news this week that the QB wiki will need to go through some notable censorship (booo... :p), how do you feel about the way the anime took things?

And here we finish Tomoe, introducing a concept of "helmet" that did surprise me...

Enjoy!




Next: Elina!

Queen's Blade 2006 Spring Designs: Tomoe (4)

Before I keep forgetting, FS is going to release a book with his illustrations (including many QB ones, of course), plus they're releasing a new Menace dakimakura thingie, see more info on both here.

On the previous Discord usage poll, "I use Discord!" and "I use Skype!" won with 13v-36% and 10v-27%, followed by "never used either!" with 8v-22%, and "not anymore!" with 5v-13%.
You know, I was trying things out with my partner the other day and it doesn't look too shabby, so we ended up creating a Discord for QBB! It's here: https://discord.gg/cscPhpZ, dunno how it'll turn out, but if you have the time, maybe drop by if you feel like it? :D

Then next poll, the eternal question...?

And here we keep going with Tomoe, never a dull moment!

Enjoy!

Queen's Blade 2006 Spring Designs: Tomoe (3)

Edit: Oh, messed up the poll results :p

First of all, if you're still following the development of the 7 Sinny gals (even if it's just for the lulz), they released a new vid here, and a new manga chapter here.

Regarding the table top game poll, "played tons of them" won with 13v-29%, followed closely by "never" with 11v-25%, and also closely by a tie between "once or twice"" and "still have regular meet-ups!" with 10v-22%.
Talk about a close poll. Hm, you know, I remember when I was a wee boy, spending afternoons playing Space Crusade and Hero Quest... plus later on, when I was a teenager, really getting into Magic The Gathering... good times, man :D

Next poll is about that Discord thingie, we'll probably open one soon-ish, but do you guys even use those things?

And, more explanations about Tomoe's pages. They sure wanted to hammer home that idea about the talismans protecting her! (which we haven't really seen in any other QB media)

Enjoy!

QB Battle 48.4

Sure wasn't expecting the newest Grimoire to get scanned outta the blue, but a deal's a deal, I guess. Hence, here we go again!

Mirrors: App + Media (update) + Extra + Fanmade
Sendspace: App + Media (update) + Extra + Fanmade
Changelog

So yeah, based on the "fire giant" Brimstone, here's Cinderella! Highest BP of all Grimoires (even Zara's), strong standard attacks (for no real reason?), nasty high-damaging freezing beams and tricky maneuvers await you, so beware of her! Be sure to check the tutorial to learn her ins & outs!


If you're interested in the Grimoire's stats, here's how they currently stand:


Do her very few cons make Cindy rather overpowered amongst them all? Probably! :3

Oh by the way, I guess the "online server" thingie turned out to be a bust, it might work fine for a few people, but apparently Gmail won't let lots of people access at the same time, too bad.

While we're on that though, a buddy here proposed the other day making a Discord thingie for QBB, what do you all think, would that be interesting? Wanted to bring that up since I don't have lots of experience with those things, so if you guys figure it'd be something nice for us to have, be sure to let me know! :D

Queen's Blade: Risty

So here we go again in our quest to have all the books properly readable, with another neat revamping of a classic Queen's Blade char, that does a little more justice to Eiwa's original drawings and standardizes the restrictions with the wording we're used to now:


Download it here!

Coming next, a new QBB version~
