Sony pulled the first Queen's Blade anime episode from the "Free TV" section of its PlayStation Network after the IGN website contacted the company about the episode's mature content. However, despite secondhand reports that say otherwise, the first episode is now relisted in the PlayStation Store's regular paid anime section for US$1.99.
The episode was listed in the Free TV section from Tuesday through at least 11:00 p.m. PDT Thursday. PlayStation Store Senior Manager Grace Chen even posted a blog entry about the "free episode of Queen's Blade" on Friday morning before the entry was edited.
Update: The same first episode is still streaming for free from Media Blasters' own website. Thanks, Paploo.
