Okay, I know the header is not really a good indicator of the show but when I ordered the series in October and it gets pushed back as much as the next Duke Nukem game (Yes I know that is coimg out on 6/14 as of this posting, but we will believe it when I see it), the only thing I can say is FINALLY!!!!
the story is about a world where every 4 years a tournament is held to determine who would be the most powerful and gorgeous queen. Women warriors complete in sanctioned battle watched over by an angels to determine who would be the most worthy to be the queen. The story, while having a large cast of characters, seem to focus on two fighters, Leena a noble daughter who wishes to make her own way in the world, and Tomoe a warrior priestess who is fighting to save her country from corruption and to avenge her fallen sisterhood. As the two warriors travel to Gynos (no comment), the capital city they will meet other fighters and have many experiences. But in the shadows the Swamp Witch and her minions strive to destroy the Queens Blade and rule over all.
While there is very strong fan service in this series, and very strong innuendo (definately not for kids), it does have a well written story which gives you a good background of the people and the world they are in, and a well developed cast of characters (and I mean they each have a good backstories)and you actually have a good first season. It was well dubbed and and there are 12 episodes with 6 ovas, bringing the total to 18 episodes (the OVAS are like Kohime Muso where the characters are resurrected in a 20th century high school setting) And with the second season first disk coming out in may I actually am looking forward to seeing how the tournament progresses.
Till next time
