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:

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.

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~?

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?
