That visual has a lot more of what season three needed; Actual Queen's Blade characters. But while the redesign is nice, I prefer Airi with, I can't believe I'm going to say this, the smaller bust.

Not small, just, you know, smaller.

PLEASE let it be a new TV season instead of OVA's. We haven't had a QB season since 2012.

I have so many mixed feelings about "Queen's Blade Unlimited". While it's nice to see the series getting continued, I'm kind of really skeptical.

The two "Grimoire" OVA episodes were pretty disappointing for me personally, the first in particular I found to be terrible, so I'm worried about how the direction for this one will be handled.
.
Not to mention this being a complete reboot. While the original run had plenty of problems, I still found it to be pretty enjoyable when everything came together and it does set up the groundwork for all the better things that happened down the line. I just don't want to see all of that tossed aside for something fairly questionable to me at this point

Probably doesn't really help that I'm not exactly liking the redesigns so far, which is more or less my first impression. While not shown in the provided image (here's the initial one from a while back: http://imgur.com/DZCFP2g). Nowa looks way too young now, the long hair on Leina just looks off to me, and I don't even know what to say about Elina's new outfit. Airi being the only one looking more or less the same design-wise, though that new image looks to have increased her bust size considerably.

I want to be optimistic considering that I am a fan of this series, this could very well be a huge improvement all around with more on-point storytelling and better animation, but that skepticism is really nagging me at this point.

I hoping that someday they make 2nd season for Rebellion. I did not like it as much as the original series, but I want them to finish the story

Heck yeah and finally, more Queen's Blade! We have Seven Deadly Sins anime coming soon and now we have this great news. Since this is a new multimedia project, I can safely assume that the anime project will a TV anime instead of another OVA series. So happy for this!

Queen's Blade was basically the first anime i ever watched on the pc, so i'm quite glad its getting a new season. And the visual looks neat.

well i liked rebellion , but yea. they have to do a second season or an ova movie to wrap up that storyline. they cant expect to do the exiled virgin and its sequel the evil eye only to have their sequel to have a half assed conclusion like that. for one thing they never explained how leina got cursed in the first place. not to mention on how did aldra lost her memories and turned into "THAT!" then there is of course annolette's origins which is a massive question mark considering that aldra and her sister was supposed to be the only half demons in the country. hell after seeing possible image shots of the swamp witch herself , i was sure a sequel was a guarantee. hopefully this QB unlimited is connected to rebellion and not a complete remake.

They did explain that. She was on the pirate girl's ship and the Swamp Queen cursed her. Can't remember the specifics.

uh i watched all six eps of the vanquished queens ova and it never once said anything about that. the only one who was cursed back then was tomoe who was traveling with aldra to find her sister. hell, it sure didn't explained how did the supposed curse they did to claudette corrupted her into an even worst tyrant than her father. its as a lot of people said. before they even think of rebooting the franchise, they at least need to complete the storyline of rebellion.
