Glad Oda Non's second character is voiced by Kikuko, she always looked boring in the artbooks and really needed an interesting voice to spice her up. Same thing with Yuu getting cast as Siggy. I'm not sure on LunaLuna's voice, but if the character can go from sultry to childish, it's good that the voice actress can follow suit. I think that's most of the main cast now, aside from the returning characters.

What are the chances of this even picked up for any stream? And if it does, it is vital to see the interim OVAs that haven't been licensed it, but those certainly won't be streamed.

Frankly, I don' t think even AT-X in Japan will broadcast Queen's Blade Rebellion uncensored. We may not see the uncensored version until the home video version arrives (probably late this fall in Japan and spring 2013 for the Media Blasters release (if they're still around!)).

Why not? They broadcast the other two seasons just fine, albeit in 4:3. I really hope they don't do that again.

Seems like a long shot to me, but CR has pulled off at least one stream for each of the past couple of seasons that I considered a long shot. (Nisemonogatari being the most recent example).

CR currently has both QB seasons (neither one was a simulcast, I don't think), so perhaps that suggests getting a simulcast of Rebellion isn't totally out of the question?

I wonder if she's related to Natsu... I certainly don't see any familial resemblance.

I think if they did simulcast Rebellion, it would be the censored version (the version shown on other stations). Since CR never replaces whatever shows they initially obtain, it would be best for fans if they simply wait to license it through MediaBlasters, as the first two QB streams are MB's dvd rips. I would not hold out for the OVAs on CR though

Yeah, except I don't have a huge faith in MB's continued survival. I hope they last long enough to pump out Rebellion but I'm not betting the farm on it.

I don't think MB will do a Geneon and go six feet under as well.

If they want to corner the ecchi market, picking up Qwaser, Manyuu Hikenchou, and Ladies Versus Butlers would be nice moves. If sex sells, why not go for broke with the top titles?

Well, if Media Blasters isn't around to pick this up, I have a feeling somebody else will.

Best anime ever.
I'm looking forward to Branwen. I get to hear Belldandy's sexy sounds.

:/

Because schlock like this exists in the anime world, shows that actually have artistic merit get shafted.

However, both Queen's Blade TV series have sold quite well on home video in Japan (and I believe has done fairly well on home video here in the USA), so that's why they're producing the third Queen's Blade TV series now.

That means nothing. All it proves is that Otaku don't care about artistic merit or worth.

Looks like you're getting your entertainment from the wrong industry. How many threads have you hopped into to declare "rarr, this kind of show is killing anime" and when does it become soapboxing?
