Hobby Japan's Queen's Blade: Rebellion: Numachi no Majo Werbellia (Queen's Blade: Rebellion: The Swamp Witch Werbellia) book will bundle the third episode of the Vanquished Queens original video anime series. The tentatively titled "Rurō no Senshi Leina-hen" (The Wandering Warrior Leina Chapter) episode will be 30 minutes long and will ship on Blu-ray on March 29. The episode marks the first anime appearance of Werbellia in the anime.
The illustrated short stories in the original 2011 Vanquished Queens visual book depict the defeats in battle of various Queen's Blade characters. The fourth Premium Visual Book book containing the second Vanquished Queens anime episode and bonus anime extra titled "Airi's Midnight Snack Bonanza" shipped on July 31.
The Queen's Blade franchise began with Hobby Japan's fantasy game books, which are Japanese spinoffs from Flying Buffalo's Lost Worlds game series. (In these games, players simulate turn-based fighting with books that each represent a character.) The Queen's Blade books already inspired three television anime series and several original video anime volumes.
