Melonbooks' Seiten Clearfile

So remember what we saw last week, that buying Seiten at Toranoana would get you an illustration sheet? Well buying her at Melonbooks gets you this clearfile:

I wonder if we'll be able to see the full versions of these one day down the road...?

Seiten reviewed

So our usual japanese fellow already got his hands on the newest Grimoire, and left us with a few new pics, she's looking great so far~

See more pics here!

Thursday, December 25, 2014

Vanquished Queens 3 (4)

For the Wonderland poll, Grimoire's Alicia beat Gate's Alice with 71v-85% vs 12v-14%. Hm, I guess Alice didn't show her true roots until her novels came, right...?
So next poll, Seiten yay or nay? I wonder if our perception of her will change when the lucky japanese guys preview her in a day or two?

And now, we're resuming VQ3, download this installment here! My pal sure is on a roll with these credits... so what village has Izumi gone and made angry this time?


Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, y'all!

Queen's Blade Rebellion Premium Visual Book

Edit: Apparently, buying Seiten at Toranoana will get you this poster... so maybe Melon Books will get another one? C´mon, not cooool...

For the poll about best armors, Leina won by a landslide with 60v-60%, then Ymir-Aldra-Menace with 16v/16%-7v/7%-5v/5%, then Nanael-Echidna-Risty with 5v/5%-4v/4%-2v/2%, and lastly a tie for final place between Claudette and Elina with 1v/1%. My partner sneakily chose the "show no results" option, was it harder to vote? Or, more exciting...?
So next poll, Wonderland duel of Alicia vs Alice, go~

So, remember when we released the "Shi" book? Well here's another one of these booklets, that actually predates that one by a bit, but eh :p

Download it from here (LQ) or here (HQ), and enjoy!

Next time, more VQ3!

Thursday, December 11, 2014

Vanquished Queens 3 (3)

Edit(12-12): Seiten previewed at last, translated the thing here~

On the latest poll about new artists, Takeda Hiromitsu and Mogudan took it with 13v-32% and 7v-17%, then Amami Takatsume and Syun Matsuena tied up for third place with 6v-15%, and lastly a tie with Yukimi and Hanaharu Naruco with 3v-7%, then last place for Bai Asuka with 2v-5%.
Then, next poll is about armors, not that easy now, is it...?

And so, one more installment, up for grabs here. Liliana's part ahoy! Probably my favoritest VQ so far, not for the reasons you might expect though. Oh, and lookie Sainyang down there, lol.


Thursday, December 4, 2014

Vanquished Queens 3 (2)

Last poll about Airi's true nature, "she's following orders" won with 44%-26v, then it was "kind, honest and misguided" with 37%-22v, and lastly an almost tie of "bad girl" and "polite evil" with 10%-6v and 8%-5v.
So next poll, the last preliminars of the "possible new artists", next time will be the semifinals...

And, we continue with more VQ3, feel free to grab it here! This time's the spotlight's on Yuit & Vante, who forego their ongoing VQ saga... or do they?


Thursday, November 27, 2014

Vanquished Queens 3 (1)

Edit (12-01): Replaced pics with leveled versions, less color-faded.

First, I posted one more chapter of Alice's novel! (proofreader help still wanted!)

For last poll about the anniversary, an OVA, a video game and more Grimoire won with 20v-23%, 15v-17%, 13v-15%, a double tie between more Gate and VQ at 9v-10%, then more manga, more promotional art and more concept art with 7v-8%, 5v-5% and 2v-2%. Other options included a Shizuka book (oh, don't we all), more figures and statues (don't they do a lot of those?), all of them (well, yeah), and more Cattleya (that was refreshingly specific).
Then next poll is about Airi; she won evil trio best buddy last time, so what's your take on her anyways?

And we finally start VQ3, about tiime~! My pal gave me these 3 pics as a download link too, so I might as well post it, since Blogspot's resizing is always ludicrous...
So we start with Melona's debut. But what a debut, dude! Leave it to F.S. to go well above and beyond the line of duty and get crap past the radar! (as the cool kids say) And I don't just mean... (see the end of the post for a hint)

Queen's Blade Anniversary : Commissions

Hello and welcome fellow QB Fans, my name is Final_Agent and I'm the mysterious partner that Leecher so often references in his posts. I handle proofreading, manga scanning, editing and various other odd jobs related to the QB series. Happy Queen's Blade Anniversary by the way!

By ManiacPaint

Happy Queen's Blade 9th Anniversary!

And today marks another day of celebration, once again!

To recap the current situation:
-Gamebooks: Seiten is scheduled to be released on December 27th. The HJ site should post their preview soon, and there's still the rumored Grimoire character by Kaneko Hiraku to be revealed.
-Visual books: Vanquished Queens 3 was released almost two months ago.
-Anime: The VQ OVA4 was released almost two months ago, we can probably expect them to release one or two more next year.

And, to follow the tradition from last year and two years ago, here are some pics of QB collections. I tried to ask a couple of our buddies, but they couldn't help much, so in the end we settled for like a four-way. First, the collection of our pal Alzrius:

Thursday, November 20, 2014

Queen's Blade: The Colosseum cards

For last poll about Spiral Chaos' attributes in a Queen, Beauty took it with 31 v-47%, then Kindness with 23 v-35%, and last was Strength with 11 v-16%. I guess the "beautiful fighters" have to be beautiful after all...
So next poll, the Anniversary is upon us, what'd you rather they do...?

Now, can you guess what game I managed to get my hands on just the other day?

Yeah, just like the other day I got the You'll QB thingie, I recently managed to buy a QB The Colosseum. The selling point of it is the exclusive art, of course: besides 3 other artists drawing Nanael (quite close to the real thing actually), Echidna and Tomoe, there's FS drawing Melpha, and Claudette's artist drawing Leina, in 4 poses each with a slightly "alternate" version to them.

Thursday, November 13, 2014

Spiral Chaos Freetalks: Dora (2 of 2)

So the poll about the evil trio, Airi won with 53v-41%, then was Menace with 39v-30%, then Melona with 35v-27%. I never expected Melona to lose in buddy potential, if only by a small margin... though well, the three of them can go for the title of best "Buddy-Body", no?
Then next poll, what's the best attribute for a Queen...? They also coincide with the Spiral Chaos attributes, to boot.

So on with Dora, can Jean even use her secret against her?


Next: Kotone! ...But first, allow us to have a nice intermission as a momentary reprieve from those crazy vids! Also the next anniversary is coming up, are we up to no good~?

Thursday, November 6, 2014

Spiral Chaos Freetalks: Dora (1 of 2)

Edit (11/07): Changed Seiten's pic to the one Presepe and Milestone show, yay cute zombies!

Well, the big news of the day is undoubtably that Seiten is already up for preorder, aiming for a December 27th release. As I say less often than I'd wish to, go Grimoire go~!

On last poll about new authors part 2, Tsukasa Jun and George Kamitani took it with 13v-27% and 10v-21%, then it was Hyung-Tae Kim, Tsunako and Miyama-Zero with 8v-17%, 5v-10% and 4v-8%, then a tie between Masashi Hiro and Imai Kami with 1v-2%. Hm, I didn't know many of these, I guess the next part will be harder to choose from.
So next poll's about the swamp trio, you could even call it a classic, heh.

And now, my mate was all too happy to release Lamica the other day, but we've been ignoring her partner in crime.
What's Dora's secret?


Thursday, October 30, 2014

Spiral Chaos Freetalks: Momo (2 of 2)

Last poll about Senran Kagura, "like it" and "big fan" won with 28v-33% and 25v-30% respectively, followed by a tie between "neutral" and "never heard of  it" with 14v-16%, then "dislike" with 2v-2%. Can't say I follow the series much (yet), but Hibari for best gal, right? Hm, maybe I just have a thing for weird eyes...

And here's another part of the "new artists" poll, we still have more options you guys suggested, but I figured I might as well not give too many options at a time and keep 'em more compact.

So, what will Momo learn from Jean?

Next: Dora!

Thursday, October 23, 2014

Spiral Chaos Freetalks: Momo (1 of 2)

For the previous poll about merchandising, "0 QB products" and "+10" won with 32v-43% and 18v-25% respectively, then "2-5 products", "only 1" and lastly "between 5-10", with 11v-15%, 9v-12% and 3v-4%. Hm, I guess that matches my latest inquiries, but isn't it still too little~?
So for next poll, apparently last week this Senran Kagura game came out, so my partner wanted to change topics for a change.

Anyways, here's Momo, the "QG that never was", no? Still, this is supposed to be the so-called "year of Wonder Momo", so I'd say we're right on time.
What will Jean learn from Momo?


Thursday, October 16, 2014

Spiral Chaos Freetalks: Leina (2 of 2)

So the Sainyang poll, "girl" won by a landslide with 63v-64%, then "nevermind" with 23v-23%, then "boy" with 11v-11%. I guess I'm a bit happy there were few "boy" votes, but lol, 1/4 of you don't even care :3
Then next poll, another poll about QB merchandise, just how much swag you guys have?

Well now, can the teasing onee-san teach Jean what strength is, or will we need to ask someone else?


Next: no wonder, Momo!

Thursday, October 9, 2014

Spiral Chaos Freetalks: Leina (1 of 2)

For last poll about more monster gals, the "meh" and the "yes please!" options won with 26v-34% and 24v-31%, followed by "a few" and "no more" with 18v-23% and 6v-7%, then the "no thanks!" in last place with 2v-2% (the actual answers weren't like this, but eh :p). Still, no real surprises here, monster gals are here to stay.
And well, here's the Sainyang poll; I didn't really want to do this one, but my partner was adamantly curious about it. I guess "in for a penny, in for a round", like Tarnyang would say.

Funny that we left our usual main character as the last QB, right? I guess that's life for ya.
Can Jean find anything to talk about with Leina?


Sunday, October 5, 2014

You'll Queen's Blade: Aldra's Citadel

So the VQ OVA 4 was ripped already (ain't them quick)... but nevermind that, here's a silly thing we just translated. What's a "You'll QB"? At the very least a set of figures with cards according to Amazon, that might have come with a map too when preordered with Amiami, according to this guy... but eh, I won't pretend it's a big thing or whatever, it is official and it's cute enough, so we're posting it.

You can download the translated cards here, enjoy!

Here's Leina:

Thursday, October 2, 2014

Spiral Chaos Freetalks: Junko (2 of 2)

So for more Alice stuff, I posted the whole chapter 1 there at Baka-Tsuki, battle at Moscow! My pal complained about it needing more polishing, so just blame little old me for getting impatient~

Also VQ3 was released and sold out in major online stores in just a day, the cover does say "everybody loves it", doesn't it :3

As for the poll, in the end the winners were Eroquis, Masamune Shirow, Ogure Ito, Inazuma and Rebis, with 11v-16%, 10v-15%, 10v-15%, 9v-13% and 6v-9% respectively. Tosh and Yui Toshiki tied at 3v-4%, then Kotoyoshi Yumisuke with 2v-3%, then a multiple tie with Yamatogawa, Shiwasu no Okina and Amazume Ryuta at 1v-1%, and Sawao dead last with 0 votes. Still, there were many other authors suggested, so I guess we're up for another poll like this soon.
So next poll, how's your stance on monster girls? Ain't them all the rage lately?

Now, will Jean and Junko come to realize their love... or something?


Next: Leina!

Thursday, September 25, 2014

Spiral Chaos Freetalks: Junko (1 of 2)

Edit3 (09-30): More preview pics of VQ3 here.

Edit2 (09-28): Another preview of VQ3 here.

Edit (09-27): VQ3 just came out in Japan (3 days in advance, even), lots of pics of the book and VQ4 ova already~

First, some promising news if you enjoyed our translations of the QG novel (and were too shy to comment? :3). We submitted it as a project at Baka-Tsuki, so if they don't turn it down and enough people get interested in it, it might be our best bet to get Alice's adventures going~

For last poll about the SC games, "played none" won with a resounding 52% (37 v), followed by "played both" with a 28% (20 v), then "played QG" and "played QB" with 10% and 8% respectively (7 and 6 v). I guess it's still more people having playing them than I expected~.
So next poll, Grimoire wishlist part 2, new ecchi artists everywhere. I figure if enough people vote "other" options, we can do a second round with those?

And now, this is technically the last QG, right? Her novels are quite solid though.
Can Junko raise Jean into a fine young man?


Thursday, September 18, 2014

Spiral Chaos Freetalks: Melpha (2 of 2)

In the repeating authors poll, Matsuryuu ended up winning followed quite closely by Oda Non (27 v/31%, 26 v/28%),  then it was Kaneko Hiraku (15v-17%), Akaga Hirotaka (12v-13%), then Kuuchuu Yousai got the least love (7v-8%). I sure wasn't expecting anyone overshadowing Oda Non, much less beating him... ^^U

So next poll, we go on and on about the games, but just how much do you guys even know about them?

Can Jean help Melpha take her mind off her worries?


Next: Junko!

Thursday, September 11, 2014

Spiral Chaos Freetalks: Melpha (1 of 2)

In the last poll about the rulers... why, did my Menace win? Yay, ain't she just the niicest? ...Ehem, so yeah, Menace and Aldra won with 31% (31v) and 26% (26v), respectively, while Claudette trailed behind with 20% (20v), then Mikado and Count Vance with 15% (15v) and 7% (7v). My pal did point out that the last Zero chapter could have turned the tides in favor of Claudette, can't deny that...

Then for next poll, we start the Grimoire wishlist series, Seiten should be about to get a release date, and what if the next artist was an old face...?

Oh, and last month this humble blog made 4 years, wee! (I always forget :p) Been one year since we started these craaazy freetalks, still one more left, we guess~

So,  what's been on Melpha's mind lately?


Thursday, September 4, 2014

Spiral Chaos Freetalks: Cham Cham (2 of 2)

So the previous poll about QB's mechanics, resulted in 35% (24v) who never tried and 31% (21v) who didn't get it, while 19% (13v) have no problem with it and 13% (9v) barely manage, hmm, I wonder what to make of it... In any case, here's a new poll about the QB rulers, Mikado didn't get much of the spotlight now, did she...?

Also, I might have forgotten to mention last time, Cham has a wild, childlike speech, so we had to make an effort to make her sound a bit like that while natural enough.

And again, happy times with Ch... wait, did something weird happen in this one?


Next: Melpha!

Sunday, August 31, 2014

Queen's Blade Rebellion Zero 11

Edit (09/01): The titles for VQ3's stories were just revealed, translated them here~!

Best chapter ever? I'm not saying that, but... In any case, it's Luna Luna's debut, and there's only the final chapter left, baby~
By the way, this chapter used to be called just "Naughty Pandemic", but I guess they dropped all the pretenses for the tank version?

Download it here, and enjoy!

Thursday, August 28, 2014

Spiral Chaos Freetalks: Cham Cham (1 of 2)

Last poll about QB/QG figures was quite close, with 38v (51%): Yes, 36v (49%): No. Whaat~, aren't they cute though? I got most of the Nendos myself... So for this next poll, a rare question about the original books. I didn't consider the mechanics that hard myself (if only a bit convoluted), but my partner disagrees, so what do you think?

Happy times with Cham Cham!


Thursday, August 21, 2014

Spiral Chaos Freetalks:Ymir (2 of 2)

So last poll, Ymir's weapons vs Cattleya's, Ymir's won by a bit of a landslide (38v, 56%) against Cattleya's (29 v, 43%), now I never expected Ymir to have that many fans. So, this next poll is about figures, how's that merchandise going?

Now then, time for Jean to learn about Ymir's secrets?


Next: Cham Cham!

Thursday, August 14, 2014

Spiral Chaos Freetalks:Ymir (1 of 2)

Edit (08-18): VQ3 + OVA 4 finally up for preorder, yay!

For last poll about ecchi/story ratio, in the end won the quite ecchi (30v, 43%), then balanced (13v, 18%), then the last 3 were quite close, with little ecchi (11v, 15%), lots of ecchi (8v, 11%) and no ecchi (7v,10%). What do you know?
So the poll this time, since we're beginning with Ymir, it's the eternal question for her~

And so, can Ymir whip Jean into shape?


Thursday, August 7, 2014

Spiral Chaos Freetalks: Mina Majikina (2 of 2)

So for the poll about Rebellion's tag teams, the Witch won with a 36.84%-21v, Eilin&Ymir and Tarnyang&Sainyang surprisingly tied with a 22.81%-13v, while Yuit&Vante lost with 17.54%-10 v. I guess the Witch still has it, then. So for next poll, a bit of a general one about story and ecchi!

And Mina second part, can Jean worm his way to her heart?


Next: Ymir!

Thursday, July 31, 2014

Spiral Chaos Freetalks: Mina Majikina (1 of 2)

First, in case you didn't see, a couple days ago the QB site was updated with the proper announcement of VQ3 and VQ OVA4's teaser, plus Seiten was given an actual page.

And for the VQ poll, in the end "I love it" and "I mostly like it" won with 52%-51v and 20%-20v, "I'm neutral", "I mostly dislike it" and "I hate it" ending with 11%-11v, 9%-9v and 7%-7v, a better reception to them than we expected. So for the next poll, since the Rebellion girls seemed to be favorites (according to the post the other day, in any case), how about choosing between the new gimmick they added, the tag team characters?

So here's the beginning of Mina's stuff, with the unexpected Chample butting in!


Monday, July 28, 2014

Queen's Blade Rebellion Zero 10

And here's Melona's and Izumi's chapter! Double-sized like last one, too! Oh, and forgot to mention the other day that the Exiled Warrior and Zero chapters from the Translations page should be fixed now, as well.

Download it here, and enjoy!

Thursday, July 24, 2014

Vanquished Queens: Original Collection

Edit (07-26): VQ3 book + VQ OVA 4 confirmed for September in this month's Hobby Japan Magazine!

This was supposed to be just a light intermission or some such, but our usual buddy got a bit hyped, so we ended up doing the whole thing! You might recognize it as the limited, rare 2012 QB extra thingie where we got the new Ymir VQ story, its whole name being "VQ Original Picture & Comic Collection", ain't that a mouthful:

Download it here, and enjoy!

As for the poll, in the end Rebellion won! (23v,37%) That was a bit surprising, though QB wasn't that far behind (19v, 30%) Then it was Grimoire with 12v-19% (go, Grimoire, go~), and lastly QG with 8v-12%. So next poll is, as expected from our release up here and the Vanquished Queens 3 that should be officially announced in no time, is VQ-themed!

Thursday, July 17, 2014

Spiral Chaos Freetalks: Nowa (2 of 2)

Update(07-18): A post by the man F.S. strongly hints that the next Vanquished Queens 3 book will contain some "Melona x Aldra, Menace x Anarista and Echidna x Menace" goodness and will be out by September! Kyah, awesome!

In the end, Kaguya's Boots (29v, 32%) and Gauntlets (25v, 28%) won! We didn't really expect her Greaves to get many votes, but surprisingly it went like: Sword (16v, 17%), Greaves (10v, 11%) then Bunny-Ears (9v, 10%). So, time for a new poll! Coinciding with all the Queen's Blade sites getting a revamp just yesterday, let's pit them all against each other!

And again, happy times with N... wait, did something weird happen in this one?


Next: Mina!... but we're having an intermission first to see if we figure out Chample's Okinawan. Like I noted in the previous post, we're having some trouble with a couple of his sentences:




So any help is welcome!

Sunday, July 13, 2014

Queen's Blade Rebellion Zero 12

We start the 3rd and last volume with the twins, and a couple cameos! We know last chapter was 9, but the tankoubon did this weird thing where it rearranged the order of the chapters for no reason, and we weren't cool with that. Also, this chapter was originally compressed of two, we didn't split it this time because we're cool like that. Plus, we improved the translation of the twins' attacks.

Download it here, and enjoy!

That aside, the next girl to get a freetalk after Nowa will be Mina, we're announcing it in advance because we ran into a little problem... its name being Chample:

See, we're pretty sure that Chample is supposed to speak Okinawan (and properly does several times)... but there's a couple lines near the beginning where it just looks like gibberish, like the line above. So, if any of you think you could help making sense of that, we'd really appreciate it~

Thursday, July 10, 2014

Spiral Chaos Freetalks: Nowa (1 of 2)

Update (07-11): Apparently Polldaddy does not prevent repeat voting past a week, so in the future, we'll have a poll per week. Everyone who wants a second vote, go on and take advantage and try to break the close tie between Kaguya's weapons!

Happy times with Nowa!


Thursday, July 3, 2014

Master of Queen's Blade Excellent Graphics: Airi, Cattleya, Nowa, Nyx

First, we got a new poll! After the failure from Blogspot's last time (that apparently isn't fixed yet), we've now switched to PollDaddy, that hopefully works a bit better. Now Kaguya should get the spotlight she deserves (and for good reason, she's still sold out in many places, even after all this time).

And for our intermission this time, we turned to the 1st Master of QB Excellent book, that still has some nice unstranslated data about our chars. It's the same place where we saw the early designs, too.


Thursday, June 26, 2014

Spiral Chaos Freetalks: Katja (2 of 2)

Maybe it's time for one of Jean's crazy plans...?


Next: Nowa... but not before an intermission (I hear it's exams time, can you tell? lol)

Thursday, June 19, 2014

Spiral Chaos Freetalks: Katja (1 of 2)

So, ready to take a lesson in dominance, from an apparent loli?


Thursday, June 12, 2014

Queen's Blade Rebellion & Queen's Gate Relationship Charts

Well this week we hadn't time for a video... but we brought something new for ya'! More specifically, the ultimate Rebellion relationship chart you might recognize from the witch's book... plus a rare QG one from a Spiral Chaos guide, courtesy of our pal Final Agent!


Thursday, June 5, 2014

Spiral Chaos Freetalks: Nanael (2 of 2)

Does Jean have the skills to be recognized by our picky angel Nanael?


Next: ...An unexpected intermission, oh.

Sunday, June 1, 2014

Queen's Gate Vol 1: Prologue (part 3)

And here's the prologue's last part! Things are just getting interesting~

Btw, if you were wondering what the "Flechette Needles" Alice used earlier were like, they're probably similar to this recently invented bullet.

It's the time for a certain cheerful rival to shine?


Saturday, May 31, 2014

Queen's Blade Rebellion Zero 9

Last chapter in volume 2, and it's an extra-sized one with the fight between Laila and Branwen!

Download it here, and enjoy!

Thursday, May 29, 2014

Spiral Chaos Freetalks: Nanael (1 of 2)

So the previous poll about the Queen's Blade Perfect Visual Book got screwed half-way through, probably because of some Blogspot malfunction I haven't been notified as of yet... so I guess no more polls for a short while, boo :( In any case, some of you allegedly didn't know what it was, so check it here, I recommend it: it has all kinds of awesome, obscure minutia about the series, and in english to boot!

Anyways, here's the cheeky angel! As usual, she's really roundabout about things, so understanding her lines proved to be quite the daunting challenge at times...


Monday, May 26, 2014

QB Battle 40.0

Update (07-19): Version 3 with a Suchie-Pai glitch corrected.

Update (07-08): Version 2 with a few bugs corrected.

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

She kept us waiting for a while, but here's the spoilt princess, Kaguya! She's mostly based on the old Lost World's Dalclion XII, and her skill with the sword might not be as fancy as it looks... but beware of her Hourai Shots, that can make short work of anyone! (in fact, her system's unexpectedly complicated, so I hope I didn't make any blunder with it ^^U)

Sunday, May 25, 2014

Queen's Blade Grimoire Seiten Profile

So here's the profile from the newest char! Thanks to the quick work from our pals Gabriel transcribing and Final Agent proofreading, we even beat the official announcement from the QB site scheduled today, yay! They might be adding something to the info here though, like the release date...?


Demon Monkey Necromancer Seiten

Thursday, May 22, 2014

Queen's Blade Backstories: Kaguya and Iroha

First of all, the new Grimoire was just announced, so feast your eyes on Seiten, the Demon Monkey Necromancer by doujin artist and QB newcomer Aoi Nagisa... Proper profile coming soon!

(Oh, and apparently the poll's been reset momentarily or something...? that's kinda awful, I hope it's back to normal soon :p)

And what brings us today is, the backstory from Kaguya, plus Iroha's for added effect. We were kinda expecting Kaguya to have Grimoire Conversations already, maybe Seiten up there will give us the pleasure?



Sunday, May 18, 2014

Queen's Gate Vol 1: Prologue (part 2)

Quite a "sui generis" "in medias res" we started with last time, right? That's kinda our author's style, but fortunately he explains things a bit in this part.

So, we left a girl in a diver suit (is she Alice?) fighting some nasty monsters, but what is she after?


Thursday, May 15, 2014

Spiral Chaos Freetalks: Maron (2 of 2)

Update: Today was announced that we'll see the next Grimoire char, a plump, sexy villain gal, on the 25th! Go, Grimoire, go~!

About the poll last time, Melona was the clear winner with 34 votes (40%), then Airi with 17 (20%), then Liliana and Menace with 11-10 (13%-11%). Dogura and Mime tied with 6 (7%), quite unexpected for a new gal, and Meena just got 0, too bad. So, this new poll is kinda straightforward, we just were curious here.

And here you go, the second part of Maron's idol journey-desuno! Can Jean make her realize her full potential?


Next: Nanael... but not before (yet another) intermission!

Spiral Chaos Freetalks: Maron (1 of 2)

Here's the second main char of the game-desuno! Did you know she talks like this? We had some trouble padding out her sentences, because this doesn't make sense in English-desuno!

Queen's Gate Vol 1: Prologue (part 1)

Update (05-05): Oops, two sentences starting with <> were missing at the beginning, my bad. Oh, and changed the post's title, or else the numbering wouldn't match later, tehehe.

So, remember years ago when I said I'd never be able to translate this? Well thanks to the inestimable help from our friend Gabriel, who went and transcribed the first book whole, this is no longer a pipe dream. So here it is, this time for reals, the start of the first chapter of the QG novel!

We'll begin with the prologue, proofread by our trusty Final Agent, and see how it goes from there.

Queen's Blade Backstories & Conversations: Werbellia

Well, with the Alice poll, QB to GQ was the most (41 votes, 53%), then it was the Spiral Chaos games (23 votes, 29%), then crossovers (9 v, 11 %). Artworks and MMD only got 3v (3%) and 1 v (1%) respectively, with the novels none. What, then the novels aren't that popular after all? Oh, but that just won't do. So, on another note (that might be quite related), in a few days we'll be starting a new project that could be huge... but we need a proofreader to handle it, as we kinda got enough on our plate right now. That's why, if your english is quite acceptable and you have some free time, start thinking it over, ok~?

About the new poll, we got one kinda centered on the Witch this time (with our new friends in there, to boot), plenty of options once again!

And finally, this is the first time we have this kind of double feature on just one character, so:

QB Battle 39.7

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

So here's the latest girl, the Witch! Be careful not to get caught up in her curses, or she'll literally sit on you, and you'll become her slave! I was this close to using our new friends the maids for the pic, but obviously this had to portray the very anticipated showdown between the villainess and the heroine...

On another note, this one might turn out to be a quite busy week after all, so keep your eyes peeled!

Spiral Chaos Freetalks: Alleyne (2 of 2)

04-25 Update: A couple days before we expected it, the usual guy already has previewed Kaguya... yay, go Grimoire go~!

Can Jean get the coveted 100 points from Alleyne?


Next: Maron! ...But not before a certain intermission!

Spiral Chaos Freetalks: Alleyne (1 of 2)

The poll about Holy Pose users ended 30% - 69% in favor of Sigui! I guess her winning was somewhat expected, but Melpha did put up a good fight. So, this next one has lots of options, and focuses on our somewhat barely known QG main char Alice! This poll has no further significance whatsoever~

In any case, here's the teacher elf, the last QB gal with a kiss!

Spiral Chaos Freetalks: Ink Nijihara (2 of 2)

I've actually been looking forward to this one! Jean has a little, a very little indeed, dream.


Next: Alleyne!

Spiral Chaos Freetalks: Ink Nijihara (1 of 2)

Edit: Kaguya previewed, translated the important bits here. Yay! Oh, and the poll ended 31-68% in favor of housewife Aldra... so here's another "comparison poll" for ya! (technically I could have included others like Laila, Nanael and the Witch there too, but let's not be picky)

It's the teacher's turn, so: Let's Engrish!

Queen's Blade Rebellion Zero 8B

So the Witch was released (at last), she was previewed here, plus the OVA here (spoiler for both the "true" and the "bad" endings there). So the next VQ OVA will have a story about Rebellion Aldra, plus the return of Echidna?

And second part of the Aldra arc, with the special appearance of the elegant pirate!

Download it here, and enjoy!

Spiral Chaos Freetalks: Aldra (2 of 2)

First off, new pics were unveiled about Kaguya, yay! Her proper preview should be coming soon as well:

And, how's Aldra's training going to end...?


Next: Ink Nijihara!

Spiral Chaos Freetalks: Aldra (1 of 2)

Lots of stuff in just a single day! For starters, there will be a signing event with Matsuryuu next 29th, plus today our laser sword-wielding new Grimoire Kaguya was announced for next month!

As for the video itself, I don't need to remind you about her "royal we", so... what does Aldra want of Jean? And, can he escape with his life?


Also about the poll, in the end it turned out with 54% that preferred the way it is, 5% that liked it better the way our pal Final Agent suggested, and 39% that liked it both ways. There might be some missing % there, but that means the line's staying the way it is, thanks for voting!

So, now we got another poll, just for fun this time, capitalizing on this rare chance where we're featuring a double dose of Aldras!

Queen's Blade Rebellion Zero 8A

And we're back with some Zero, been a while, and just in time to begin the Aldra arc!

Oh, and if you noticed the "8A" above, it turns out these were originally released as 3 chapters, but the tankoubon joined them all into one. Still, we thought the pacing and stuff really made more sense if released separately, so tl;dr: You're welcome~!

Download it here, and enjoy!

Spiral Chaos Freetalks: Jubei (2 of 2)

Kissing time for Jubei! Of course, that fits her modus operandi to a T, doesn't it now?


Next: Aldra!

Spiral Chaos Freetalks: Jubei (1 of 2)

And we're back with the videos, time for the happy and wacky Jubei to shine!

QB Battle 39.4

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

Here's our latest addition! Gretel has these mechanics where she can transform into Hansel only when she takes damage, so use Hansel's weird and safe moves with caution! Also, she can only do her "Pull Hair" move against opponents with enough grabbable hair, but that should be like all of the QB girls and most of the LW guys.
