Queen's Blade Unlimited OVA 1 announced!

So, today the official Twitter announced the first OVA is getting released on July 13th!


It has many different editions apparently, limited editions will have a mini-novel by our author (80 pages) and a pic by our new artist.

Plus, according to the anime page as well, different stores might get different bonuses, with Melonbooks getting like a fanzine with comments from previous artists or Hans, HJ Online getting a random postcard among 5, and Toranoana getting an Airi tapestry thingie.

The stores also confirm that Michel will be voiced by Aya Suzaki, and with the reveal of the OVA's title ("Elina's Journey") and its basic plot, it confirms our suspicions that it's going to follow quite closely the story we're translating at the moment.
Hope they do a stellar job with the animation!

Go, Unlimited, go~!

Queen's Blade Unlimited Story: Chapter 1-2(a-1)

For the poll about the 3 so-called QB traits in a Queen, "kindness" won with 31v-56%, followed by "beauty" with 14v-25%, and then "strength", with 10v-18%.
Compared with the last time we did it, back then it was "beauty" which won with 31v-47%, then "kindness" with 23v-35%, and in last place again "strength" with 11v-16%.
Heh, if strength keeps being the least favoured trait, maybe they shouldn't decide the whole thing with a fighting tournament, amirite~?

Next poll is about Pixiv, since FS went and opened one (thanks to Koodu from the Discord for the heads-up :D).

Now we continue with the story, sauna time! Featuring a cameo from a couple gals from last time, too.

Enjoy!

Queen's Blade Unlimited Story: Chapter 1-1(g-2)

Regarding the poll on the VII Virtues spin-off, "looking forward to it!" won with 16v-43%, followed by an almost tie between "interested like you wouldn't believe!!", "dunno about the concept" and "can't say the idea interests me" with 7v-18%, 6v-16% and 5v-13%, and lastly there was "the 7 what now??" with 3v-8%.
If you ask me, it's actually kind of a fun series, they condense fanservice and some humor in 4 mins in a similar way to how Bikini Warriors did... :3

Next poll, we repeat one we did some time ago, about those funky QB attributes!
...Speaking of which, lately we're kinda coming up empty when trying to think of new polls (guess it's been some years now, huh...). Do you guys have any idea for a poll that could be exciting or fun to ask? :D

Now, it took a while, but we finished chapter 1-1! Next chapters won't be so long, thankfully. More info on Michel gets revealed...?

Enjoy!

Queen's Blade Unlimited Story: Chapter 1-1(g-1)

For the Patreon poll, by overwhelming majority, 23v-57%, "no account and no interest" ended up winning. After that, there was "1-20 $" with 7v-17%, then "have an account, put no money" with 5v-12%. Trailing after those, a two-way tie between "21-100$" and "100+$" with 2v-5%, and "what's a Patreon" got no votes.
Hm, somehow expected a bit more of support, though I guess depends on which artists you favour... and it's not like I contribute hugely myself :p

Next poll, the 7 Virtues spin-off to the 7 Sins sister series, which kinda turns the idea on its head, has started! Thoughts?

Moving on with the story, we're close to being done with the veery long chapter 1-1, and a couple chars make their Unlimited debut!

Enjoy!

Queen's Blade Unlimited Story: Chapter 1-1(f)

For the original Irma poll, "3/5 was alright" won with 19v-37%, followed by a close call between "4/5 has a lot of strong points!" with 12v-23% and "5/5 loved all about her" with 11v-21%. After that, there was "2/5 was never that great" and "1/5 was bad all around", with 6v-11% and 3v-5%.
Great to hear lots of people liked my Irma! Wonder why she was rather low in the popularity scale then...

Next poll, there was some controversy or somesuch about Patreon not long ago, so tell us, do you fellas use it?

Moving on, here's a rather short chapter... where Elina makes a surprising declaration?

Enjoy!

Queen's Blade Unlimited Story: Chapter 1-1(e)

First of all, in our ongoing quest to translate everything QB under the sun (as if that was something only a couple guys could pull off?), we got a twitter now: https://twitter.com/QBTranslations! We might translate there stuff like the funky tweets from the official Unlimited account, so check it out if you wanna!

Also, some news about Unlimited's upcoming OVA! Considering how the author of our novel is cowriting the script and the announced chars match the story so far, it's quite likely that the OVA is intending to follow the official story, for a change! Plus, more to come late February.


Now, for the previous poll about "soft" or "fit", "balanced!" took it with 49v-59%, and after that "soft!" with 18v-21%, followed closely by "fit!" with 15v-18%.
Guess balance is where it's at, huh? Can't complain myself, my Menace was the representative there :3

Next poll --let me preface it by saying I wasn't the one suggesting it :3--, one more about my Irma-chwan!

Storywise though, it's time for the new heroine and hero (?) to meet?

Enjoy!

Queen's Blade Unlimited Story: Chapter 1-1(d)

On the resolutions poll, "they're not my thing" won with 15v-50%, followed by "usually do well" with 7v-23% and "pretty much never complete them..." with 3v-10%. After that there was "usually do poorly" and "I don't make them" with 2v-6%. Then, last was "I always apply them!" with 1v-3%.
Hm, guess it's a bit of a silly yearly tradition to follow through... though then again, trying to improve oneself is kind of commendable as well?

And since we recently noticed that new-ish pic from F.S., what do you go for anyways?

Now we're back to Elina again, what did she have in mind when she confronted Claudette?

Enjoy!
