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!

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!

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!

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!

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~

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!

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.
