Queen’s Blade S2 01 – My Staff and Rod shall be your comfort

Queen’s Blade S2 starts out quite differently from season 1 by filling the episode up with intrigue and intentions. As most of us know, it’s a service show borderline hentai that caters to men and some lesbians mostly. It is not for most people. In fact, one of my friends who recently started watching a lot of mainstream stuff downloaded the fan sub of episode one, season one, and as soon as he saw Melona’s milk attack, he turned it off.

It is easy to get distracted by the moments where the female warriors get naked or flirting with one another or gets shafted (you wish it were that Shafted) by an evil staff AKA Krauser III’s penis that can transform into anything, even tentacles, but looking past all that (I didn’t) and treating the characters and their personalities as just characteristics, you’ll see the valiant effort by the writing staff to produce a fantasy story beating with a real heart (that helps your throbbing penis), as well as an epic music piece at the beginning (that softens the stroke). One must remember that in a world with female warriors, covering up every inch of their (luscious and milky) bodies is not the primary concern; life and death and mobility is. Metal armors are simply not flexible and women, at least most of them, fight with speed, agility and flexibility (oh yes) as their primary weapons. When it’s women against women, it’s pointless to wear thick and heavy armors because that would only slow them down.

It is natural to have broken armor or torn clothing during fights. Just because it’s women doesn’t mean everything would stay on despite fierce clashing of swords (thank god clothing fall off). It is distracting and most people who can’t handle the truth thinks it as merely sexed-up action. But the truth is, if a person is fighting for live, even if she were a women I doubt she’d care about exposure (not in this case, anyway).

As for the plot, we finally learn that the reigning Queen is possibly more sinister than she first appeared. However, as most anime veteran probably noticed (if they actually watch it) that she’s not fully in control of everything. There are devils manipulating behind the scene. These devils aren’t from the same camp as the minions of the Witch of the Swamp and as of now, their goal isn’t known.

As for the warriors, everyone has her own agenda and some are grand, others seem insignificant by comparison. In life, our goals differ, but each person’s goal is important. When interests clash, friends turn into foes and love turns into hate. Sometimes it goes even more complex than that; as defeating your own sister may help her to see your point of view. But in any case…

YES, I LOVE THE SCENES WHERE CLAUDETTE AND ELINA WERE NAKED IN THE PRIVACY OF THEIR OWN ROOM, AS WELL AS LISTY’S HOT BOD. GOD DAMN THEY WERE HOT!

Plot, great voice acting, good animation and naked women. what the fuck more do you want? Oh and there is a loli and a shota, sheesh, it’s like a buffet for everyone! Just cave in and dive in yer hyprocrites!

Episode Rated: 3.5 strokes out of 5

Additional notes: oh and, the archbishop of Melpha’s religion is Dante…a wink to Dante the inferno maybe? Send me to hell immediately!

Uh…There were men? Men aren’t needed!

  1. That’s an interesting way looking at a soft core porn anime. It may be true that they’re trying for something more, but I think it’s better to just stick to T&A.

  2. It’s rather surprising that such a show would have a heart and a decent plot…Maybe I should pick it up? Maybe this will be the show that the audience (men and women) will stay in their seats after jacking off?

  3. No, it’s NOT hentai…It’s just naked women in anime with extremely simple and easily guessable plots. But worth your masturbatory efforts if you can’t get a girl.
    nice coverage.

  4. I’m a girl and I don’t dislike this too much…hehehe.
    Seriously though, get a female writer and cover some women-oriented shows!

  5. As a fan of “Fantasy Females” (who’s first true heroine was–‘scuse me, IS, Pam Grier), I’m loving the living hell outta QUEEN’S BLADE. I look at it as (see if you agree on this) “What XENA-WARRIOR PRINCESS Could’ve Been”. Sure, the nudity and fan service and yuri-yuri luvin’ might turn off the whiny “Dragon Ball Z-raised kids”, but that’s GOOD. Once they get past that, just like on XENA, you’d find (a) one hell of a story with the writing to back it up; (b) some damn good acting; and (c)photography and/or artwork that can make a Hollywood cinematographer bust a nut! In other words, this show is the total package. (Especially this 2nd Season.) As for the fight sequences, throw all XENA references out the window and think Italian Amazon Movies of the ’70s, Japanese Samurai/Ninja Females of the Made-for-VHS ’80s and ’90s, and anything from Edgar Rice Buroughs like TARZAN and JOHN CARTER FROM MARS with the women who populated THOSE stories.
    QUEEN’S BLADE is just the latest in that long tradition. It’s just that, with it being animated and with all the fantasy-based nudity and poses, it’s much more pure.

    And, like you stated, it’s NOT Hentai: In the Woman-Powered World where this story takes place, the boobs and buns are just THERE. Yea, when folks fight (for real), clothes get shredded, and that’s life. So, there you have it. (Now, if Media Blasters can bring forth the REST of the series instead of keeping us waiting for nearly 7 months between volumes—thank GAWD for Fan-Subs!)

    1. @ Lawrence Wise (a.k.a. OSMOSIS) – man, you know a lot of stuff that I don’t. That’s awesome! But yeah, I was a Xena fan. And of course, the director of Xena went on to direct Hollywood Blockbusters. Xena had a great story behind it. QB has a great story underneath and it’s strength is the backstory for all the characters.

      Yep, if a woman is fighting for her life, forget about getting naked – it’s about stayin’ alive! So glad you agree.

      Well, let’s all try to support a show that blends female warrior fantasy and a great story, eh? Thank you for commenting!

  6. Nobody’s going to read this or care, but it’s not Dante THE Inferno, it’s DANTE’S Inferno; it was written by Dante about the protagonist, who shares his name, journeying through the seven rings of hell. Dante is not AN inferno, he wrote ABOUT an inferno, hence Dante’s inferno.
