Hmmm, I wonder what kind of shorts they'll do.

7 shorts a.k.a what everyone expected from this....fanservice with frontal nudity.

Really, how many of you have actually watched this? Some of the clothing is on the skimpy side but that is it. The worst that has been seen is a bare bum during a single bathing scene. This is a PG show so far.

That said I was expecting the worst from this, watched it anyway and surprisingly it is passable, though hardly what you would call good. Doubly surprising given it is based on an MMO.

I mostly agree with you, but most of the major female characters have giant, barely covered tits. When they offer shorts on the blu-rays they're almost always either comedy or fanservice-based, Considering the nature of the show's character designs, I think it's safe to say that these will be the latter.

I really don't know why people so quickly dismissed Blade & Soul as another "boob show".

Yes, the majority of the characters are busty females, but despite all this the fanservice is still very limited. They're clearly trying to make a decent fantasy adventure series, not another lame fanservice boob fest.

Still, I agree that these bonus shorts will probably be fanservice-y. Most DVD/BD shorts are usually all comedy or fanservice, but that generally doesn't affect the actual show.

Series so far has been pretty serious in its storyline, with the silent and deadly (and sexy) assassin running around. I've only seen 2 episodes right now, but it looks good. Admittively, there been alot exploits of showing off the women's assets, but least they're taking it seriously in the story.

Shorts i can image will be too bad, hopefully not overhyped, oversexed ones. I suspect it could be like slightly comedical chiba like animations like they show in end credits so far of the tv show.
