Queen's Blade Unlimited Story: Prologue & Chapter 1-1(a)

Edit: Oh, next will be Nanael's designs, not Melona's, my bad :p

For the poll about angels panties, Laila's weird panties took it with 39v-57%, followed by Nanael's classic polka dot panties with 20v-29%. After that, there were Kyuel's simple panties and Hachiel's vertical stripes with 5v-7% and 4v-5%.
Hmm, I wonder what would have happened if my Menace with her horizontal stripes had been there as an option~?

The poll this time is based on one that they did in the Unlimited twitter before, so why not, huh?

And lo and behold, here's the start of the Unlimited story! Unlike other posts where we try to release a finished thing in consecutive weeks, we'll try something new this time and post these as we manage to get them translated, interspaced with other stuff in the meantime.

So without further adeu, here's the two first installments we have of the brand new story!


Prologue: Story of the Beautiful Fighters

The Queen's Blade, a life or death tournament held once every 4 years, gathering Beautiful Fighters from across the land to compete.

In accordance with the practice set by the Founding Queen who gave new life to the Continent, only the strongest woman can be allowed to rule over all.

Thus, under the vigilance of an angel, any winner to an official Queen's Blade match may issue any one order to the loser.

Take away an adversary's precious weapon for yourself? Maybe enslave them instead? Or perhaps... demand the throne from the current Queen herself!

From the borderlands, a noble's daughter sets out in search of her beloved sister, Leina, who threw it all away to become a Beautiful Fighter, Elina's adventure begins here.

Queen's Blade 2007 Summer Designs: Airi (6)

For the poll about Unlimited Claudette, "great design but not Claudette" won with 37v-50%, followed by "great design and fits the character" with 19v-26%, then "bad design and not Claudette" with 11v-15%, then "okay choice for design and character" with 6v-8%.
Heh, gotta agree this time with the majority, the design might be cool and all, but is too different from the Claudette we know and love, isn't it...

This week's poll comes from yesterday also being Panties Day (8/2 = pa-tsu), so angel panties galore!

And here we finish Airi's sketches, including her absorbing move that would kind of become a bit more intimate in the anime and posterior adaptations :3

Enjoy!




Next: ...Oh, a rare irregular post, neat!

Unlimited Melona teaser

Since yesterday was apparently "bunny day" (because of one of the japanese pronunciations of 8 and 2, you see), the guys on Twitter posted a nice sketch of our bunny-eared slime girl:


Looking good, right?

More news as they come!

Queen's Blade 2007 Summer Designs: Airi (5)

Edit: One of our fellows, Sayo, commented in the poll:

I can't comment on the QBB blog itself (how about allowing comments using Twitter, guys?) so maybe someone could copy this there? Assuming anyone reads these poll comments in the first place... Anyway, I don't have a problem with new costumes in general. It's a girl's prerogative to change her outfit, right? My main gripe with these redesigns is that they all have basically the same body shape. There should be a much bigger difference between Melpha and Nowa, right? Having said that... This isn't Claudette. It looks like a completely different person. "Unlimited" shouldn't mean you can just do whatever you want!

We had never heard problems about posting comments, but though we can't really do anything about commenting from Twitter, we just changed the configuration to allow anyone to comment, even without a Google+ account or a "registered user" openID thingie.
If this becomes spam hell, we'll revert to how it was~

---

On the new Layton game poll, "what's a Layton?" and "considering trying it out" won with 13v-36% and 12v-33%. After that, "uninterested in the series" and "already preordered/playing!" followed with 6v-16% and 3v-8%. Finally, there was "can't stand puzzle games" with 2v-5%.
Oh, not a lot of puzzle fans around here, I see? If you ask me, it's a nice installment in the series, with some nice (and tricky) puzzles, charming characters and a handful of cool twists to boot...

Moving on with the next poll, obviously the talk of the week is Claudette's brand new look, surely worth some discussion.

Now here's a bit more of Airi, including the difference between a wraith and a ghost (funny considering how we haven't really seen any ghost in QB? Or does anime Shizuka count?)

Enjoy!

Unlimited Claudette joins the fray!

A.k.a. "I can't believe my older sister is this cute?!", maybe? (lol)

But yeah, after quite an image change kind of past the point of recognition (except for the thunder sword, that is), here's Claudette's new look:


"Elina... how lovely are thou..."

What do you guys think? Yay or nay?

More news as they develop!

Queen's Blade 2007 Summer Designs: Airi (4)

On the hours of sleep poll, "6-7" won with 26v-49%, followed by "7-8" with 14v-26%. After that, there was "6-" with 9v-16%, and "8+" with 4v-7%.
Hm, I guess I always sleep only a bit more than 7 hours myself, any more than that and I'm not sleepy the next day... :p

Next poll, how's about that new Layton game? This time it was me who pushed for the poll, but what can I do, I'm a fan of the big guy :3

Here's another installment of Airi tho! She sure ended up with a lot of expressions, huh.

Enjoy!

Queen's Blade 2007 Summer Designs: Airi (3)

For the Unlimited designs poll, "most are pretty great" won with 25v-31%, followed by 3 close choices, "love all of them!!" with 15v-21%, "only like a few of the new ones..." with 13v-18%, and "I'm sort of in the fence" with 11v-15%. Then after that, was "new designs?" with 5v-7%, and finally "hate every updated version!" with 2v-2%.
Guess I don't need to mention, I'm a fan~... though Melpha's was quite surprising indeed.

This week's poll is about hours of sleep! ...Oh, right, you know how Maria spent all day sleeping?

So, marching on with the wraith's designs, here are some of her not-very-common dematerializing tricks!

Enjoy!
