Queen's Blade Vol. #3 - Review

The end of the first season of Queen's Blade isn't all that much of a surprise since it's the end of a first chapter overall. Over the course of the season we've been introduced to a lot of characters who have fought in battles with each other and several of them have added to what Leina as the lead character is capable of. The bad characters have been introduced and we got a look how things operate in the heavens while spending a lot of time with a particularly bad angel. Nanael had a greater focus in the second volume but here she's pushed to the side in order for everyone else to stand out.

 With the four episodes here, Queen's Blade covers a fair bit of ground for getting us to the point where they're ready to enter the capital and begin the real fight to determine who the new queen is. There's little in the way of new characters and fights related to that here, but there is at least one, and one of the weaker ones at that. The opening episode introduces us to a dwarf named Ymir who has come to seek revenge against a weapon maker named Cattelya who she claims is making inferior materials. Ymir is certainly cute and all but Cattelya really takes it down a few notches by having breasts that are bigger than, well, Ymir. There's no surprises with story here as they end up fighting, but it's hard to watch Cattelya. The women of Queen's Blade all generally have large breasts, but ones like this just make you cringe and wince. Read More...
