Queen’s Blade s2 05 – less tits, more plots

It is with much regret that I must report that Queen’s Blade s2’s T&A count is way down compared with last season.

It is also with much regret that I must report that when plots are going, tits aren’t showing. Or at least very little of them shows.

…So what? I’m actually enjoying the show nonetheless! I like seeing women on screen better than seeing men. Feel my stroking powerrrrr!
Thank God there are almost no male characters in this wonderfully girl-powered show. The only recurring characters are Cat-Staff, who’s quite funny, and Reina’ Dad, who practically never has a face.

The fight between Cattleya and Airi begs the question: does the Queen has something against Cattleya and hubby? What is it then? It’s obvious that Aledra is trying to kill two birds with one stone, or in this case, two chicks with one stone gaze (har har). What ends up is a touching scene of Lana fighting and distracting the queen and inevitably helping Airi, who turns out to have a soft spot after all.

They go back to Menace’s “lair” and she utters fan service cooing voice and gets an oil message. In last season, we never got to see her breasts much (not enough), and this time, still no bare boob messages and pinching the nipples and all that…Oh my, this article is now rated NC-17 for suggestive language.

Menace teases Airi and of course she is embarrassed. We get to see Airi’s cute side.

Reina? Oh, since Cattleya is gone, Ymir decides to take Reina’s sword up to notches unknown. Ymir realizes that Cattleya and hubby’s forging skills, which she termed, curiously, “Alchemist” skills, is superior than hers. However, she realizes that she has a way to add her own skills to it. So Reina gets the traditional hero’s power up item. I wonder if the sword will be Excalibur (see Fate Stay Night Anime)?

Surprisingly good action and actually intriguing plots for a show like this. But of course, I watched it for T&A, and inevitably, with more plots, there is less T&A.

Onto the next episode – Irma VS Risty.

Risty’s outfit looks better but I still think she’s an odd choice for that plot line.

Queen’s Blade S2 04 – Bet ya didn’t think…

That the pacing would work. Oh yeah, through the eye of this anime veteran, the pacing in this episode worked out just fine. Not only that, but they didn’t have too many commentaries on the side. When they shifted the view to a character outside of the ring, it’s usually because something important is going to happen.

This show maintains its high quality of drawing of female’s bodies and for you GAR loving girls out there, a well portioned body of Cattleya’s husband. But I’ll save that for later.

Most of us don’t like a character that preaches or shouts out silly one-liners all the time. However, Alleyne simply makes me smile. I guess yeah, it is because she’s actually freaking hot underneath that cape and that hat. She’s also a bad ass and fights just as well as she evaluates others’ fighting performance. An harsh sounding elf girl with some smarts and that body, she is definitely the focus of this episode. as faps are heard around the world, she fights her way to a near victory, but alas, silly butt naked Nowa loses the day for both of them.

I don’t really hate Nowa for it, however, because after all, she wears thick socks and is butt naked, not to mention she is a really inexperienced fighter not in the main plot. It’s no wonder that she’d lose! But that cute butt is a nice enough compensation.

Echidna is her usual sex-predator self, thirsting and teasing Nowa and that was intense. But the best part was the fighting animation. The people drew the stuff really put a lot of thoughts into weapon movements and clashes and all.

The script writers really did they job with pacing. As the fight between Alleyne & Nowa VS Echidna and Irma ends (with Irma acting like a tsundere), the plot goes on and thickens a little. But of course, because this is Enter the Dragon, female warrior edition, we come to more battles, this time featuring our main character, Reina/Leina VS Ymir, as well as some of our favorites, Cattleya VS Airi.

I personally find Lana not as necessary, but for a kid character, he’s not annoying, because he doesn’t say a lot! I think that’s a huge plus since I don’t like kids.Also, some people needs to see a strong mom-character with a pet shota. That’s just how it goes.

With some ties and entanglements played out, we come to the fights that aren’t really significant…Or are they? Perhaps Airi knows something about the whereabouts of Cattleya’s husband and maybe Reina, who holds the sword forged by Cattleya’s husband, will have some bones to pick with Ymir, or rather, the opposite is true.

In any case, I’m surprised the pacing and drama played out well enough despite being a fighting season. So much so that I watched the episode twice despite the low level of fan service!

Additional notes: How can you NOT love Kugimi’s show stopper singing performance? Mellow mellow!

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.
