Added the fanmade Saeko Busujima and Assassin, from the Assassin's Creed games (thanks to Ninja Renegade and Okami31's images and Baofu's help):

Next, FF13's Lightning, and a few bugs corrected here and there.

Plus, did you guys see Vanquished Queen's anime trailer? Pretty sweet, and that first OVA is up for preorder too...

QB Exiled Warrior 9

After getting her sword broken last chapter, it's a good moment for Leina to meet the two girls obsessed with weapons:

Download it here, and enjoy!

...Also, this month's Hobby Japan announces Irma's new figure... and that's just it? Hm, I'll keep looking.
(Update: Apparently it only has info on figures and the VQ anime, too bad it's not the next books).

Queen's Blade Rebellion Bitoshi Senki Volume 1

Whew, now this was a lot of work, but here's a decently packaged compilation of the first volume of the Illustrated Stories. I revised the chapters translated by fiwasaki for a better flow, translated most of the blurbs (with interesting tidbits about Cyan), corrected the retcon from chapter 3, and even threw in the "Setra's Room" freetalks fiwasaki once translated, but that literally didn't exist anymore (lucky thing I'm a collector ^^U).

So, it's a great chance to remember the origins of Rebellion's story, or to start reading it if you haven't already. It's still missing a couple of blurbs and the profiles, but eh, good enough for now:

You can also get the CD accompanying it, that seemingly summarizes the story pretty well.

Rebellion story: Mirror/Sendspace
Drama CD: Mirror/Sendspace

Next, shall we start a little vanquishing?

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

Oh boy, I'm kinda losing my touch lately, right :p... Anyways, managed to at least translate Alicia, and add the fanmade Zatch Bell (thanks to RaCuGa for the pics):

Coming next, HSOTD Saeko Busujima and the Assassins from the Assassin's Creed series.

Queen's Blade Backstories: Zara and Alicia

Before we begin, in case you missed it, our buddy Charles made this proto-guide for the first QB books, if you like the game, be sure to let us know what you think!

And seeing as Alicia was scanned just in time, shall we start unraveling Grimoire's mysteries?

Queen's Blade Rebellion Endings (IV): Mirim, Annelotte & Aldra

First of all, here's the CD that came with the 3rd volume, don't miss it if you want to hear the quirky swamp adventures and the witch's sexy voice while doing her attacks (if I'm not mistaken, the last track, "defeat", is her "true" voice...) Get it here: Mirrors/Sendspace

And we end the Rebellion endings for now with this last batch. Maybe we'll get more info on Elina, Melona and others in a final Rebellion visual book...?

QB Battle 36.6

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

Go, Grimoire, go! Even after a week, both Alicia's and Zara's books are restocking and selling out like crazy, seems like Grimoire is off to a very good start.

Anyways, busy week, so I only translated and added the recent Zara (that plays similar to LW's Hathor):

I also corrected "Laila" not having her proper name, added "first" and "last" buttons when selecting chars and added a not-quite-elegant-but-definitive solution for any vertical scroll bars still appearing, a new editable parameter in the "system.cfg".

Coming next, Zatch Bell (now for real), and HSOTD's Saeko Busujima. Will Alicia be here too? It's hard to tell now, isn't it...?

Plus, I got the QBR Minis, and I have an extra Ymir and Liliana. Guess I'll put them up on Ebay...
