Queen's Blade Fantasy Game Books Get TV Anime

posted on by Egan Loo
Game features My-HiME's Hisayuki, Mahoromatic's Takamura, Hand Maid May's Hirata

The promotional sleeve wrapper on the Queen's Blade: Ōma no Jo-ō Arudora and Sentō Kyōkan Arein books (on sale on June 20) will announce that a television anime has been green-lit for the Queen's Blade combat picture book game series. Queen's Blade is Hobby Japan's Japanese spinoff from Flying Buffalo's Lost Worlds game series. In combat picture book games, players simulate turn-based fighting with books that each represent a character. For example, the two books above represent the twilight queen Arudora and the fighting instructor Arein.

The original game books feature characters designs by many popular artists, including Hirokazu Hisayuki (My-HiME), Kazuhiro Takamura (Mahoromatic), and Katsuzo Hirata (Hand Maid May). However, no announcement has been made on the staff of the anime. The game has already been adapted into drama CDs, novels, two manga series, and several anthology comics.
