Queen's Blade Grimoire: Snow White

For the poll about the Grimoire OVA 1, 4 stars won with 14v-30%, followed closely by a tie of 3 stars and "never saw it" with 10v-21%, then 5 stars with 8v-17%, and lastly 2 stars and 1 stars tied with 2v-4%. Gotta agree with "4 stars" there, myself :3 

Next poll, just take a look below and let us know what you think~!

Because, surprise intermission, here's our new Eiwa girl, translated for your eyes only!

And, since this time around we didn't cover her backstory, here you go!

Enjoy!


Magical Princess of the Mirror, Snow White

Within a magnificent lakeside garden, sang a princess, her skin as white as snow, her singing voice so enchanting that birds, hares and fawns, all gathered round in rapt attention to listen to her melodious performance amidst the flowers.
Yet, unbeknownst to them, trouble loomed over the tranquil sight as villains drew near.

"Heh-heh-heh, that the Apple Princess?"
"Heard she got banished by her stepmother, the Queen, but came back after she kicked the bucket from some illness."
"Poor kid. And just when we were about to conquer her land too."

These men were no mere rogues for they prided themselves kingdom-conquering thieves, unmatched in all of Mel Fair Land.
Be it chivalrous knight or well-off citizen, it made no difference to them for, so long as there were riches to take, everyone was a target.
Still, greedy as they were, they were no fools either, they'd come prepared with a group 30-something strong for their ambush on the Princess of the Apple Kingdom after all.
Though, there was one crucial detail they'd gotten wrong.
The Queen never died of an illness, in fact, her very sudden, and very unpleasant, "dethroning"... had been the work of the returning Princess herself.

As such, the villains were promptly decimated.
Some charred by lightning; others pummeled by an otherworldly mechanical doll or petrified alive with but a single glance.
The last surviving thief, leader of the band, sat before the princess and pled for his life. "*Whimper. P-Please, don't kill me. Had I known there were so many people in this world we couldn't even match up to..."
The Princess smiled, a warm smile that would have been comforting were the man in any other situation, and answered:
"Ufufu, oh but they weren't of this world. The Lord of the Thundercloud, Claudette, the Alchemic Automaton, Vante, the Bewitched Queen, Aldra... they all came to my aid from somewhere beyond this dimension."
"Ch-Cheating bitch... if it weren't for that weird power of yours, we would have won!"
The Princess smiled again, this time a horrifyingly cold and chilling smile, and placed her ominous dagger right up to the leader's throat.
"Magic mirror in my hand, tell me, who's the strongest beautiful fighter of the land... no, never you mind, we both know the answer to that. It's me. Snow White." "E-Eek~"
"Now then, eat this apple and kindly be gone. No need to fret, it isn't poisonous."The man took but ten steps, and was just about to run off, when the apple in his stomach suddenly exploded in a thunderous blast, scattering every flower petal in the vicinity.
"Not poisonous indeed, do mind the explosion though."

Snow White had easily rid herself of the villains, yet there stood another person, someone with an actual desire to fight her and, unlike the thieves just now, someone who would prove far more of a challenge.
"Ufufu, well then, whom shall I have you face? Or would you care for an apple first?"

Sure enough, will it be Snow White or this powerful new enemy who triumphs?

They won't know that unless they fight.

  2. Are you going to add Snow White to the game eventually? I don't mean to be rude, but I was just want to know because I wanted to be able to use her in the game.

    Thanks for translating her either way!
