When you look at something like Queen’s Blade Rebellion at face value, you do not think immediately “cash grab.” Or at least you hope to god that it is not. Then while you are watching it, it is very clear that the reality of the situation is clear; and it is exactly what you feared it might be. A complete nothing cash grab with no soul or style to speak of. Continue reading

Queen’s Blade: Utsukushiki Toushitachi Review

Queen’s Blade Utsukushiki Toushitachi ova anime poster 2010 dvd

Calling this a 3rd season would be a stretch.

One big example is Space Battleship Yamato 2199 in 2013, regarded by many as a suitable remake of the classic space opera from 1974. Here we have Ushio to Tora, a reboot of a 1992 10 episode OVA based on a 6 year long manga in 1990. I was not aware of their existence, but suffice to say, this reboot has succeeded in peaking my interest in the series. Continue reading
