The anime premiered in 2009 and inspired two sequel television series and five original video anime (OVA). Crunchyroll streamed the third series, Queen's Blade: Rebellion, as it aired in Japan. Media Blasters released the anime's first two television seasons, and Sentai Filmworks released the third television series and Queen's Blade: Beautiful Warriors OAV on home video in North America.
