Tokyo Necro's Shinya Ōsaki redesigns characters with returning cast

The staff for the Queen's Blade Unlimited anime revealed the cast, staff, visual, and 2018 debut date for the original video anime (OVA) project on Thursday.

The returning cast members and characters include:

Hobby Japan is credited with the original work, and Miyagomono-ya Hans is credited with the original concept and supervision. Gabi Kisaragi is directing the anime at Fortes, while Ryunosuke Kingetsu (Samurai Girls, Vanquished Queens) is penning the script in collaboration with Eiji Okita, the writer of the Queen's Blade novels. Shinya Ōsaki (Tokyo Necro) of Unknown Games is credited with the original rebooted character designs, and Takayuki Noguchi (Queen's Blade 2: The Evil Eye, Queen's Blade: Grimoire) and Yukiko Ishibashi (Queen's Blade: Rebellion, Vanquished Queens) are credited as character designers as well as chief animation directors.

Other staff members include:

The tagline for the new project is, "More strongly, more violently, reboot!" According to Miyagomono-ya Hans, Queen's Blade Unlimited returns to the origin nine years ago, while simultaneously depicting a never-before-seen Queen's Blade world.

Aside from the new anime, the franchise will also get a new figure line tied to a new story. The anime's website teases "new battles" for "18 beautiful warriors."

The first Queen's Blade anime adapting Hobby Japan's combat picture book series based on the Lost Worlds game premiered in 2009. The franchise has since inspired two additional television anime and multiple original video anime, manga, and novels. Media Blasters released the first two anime series in North America, and Sentai Filmworks released the third series and the Queen's Blade: Beautiful Warriors OVA.
