[New April 2009] Queen's Blade (クイーンズブレイド 流浪の戦士)


Info: (Official) http://queensblade.tv/
Download: Fansub available through http://www.baka-updates.com/
Genres: Fantasy / Ecchi / Nude / X-rated
I've watched: 1 episode
Art style: Huge Boobs

Summary: In a world where the queen is decided every 4 years through a tournament, girls beat each other up, naked!!

First impression score: F-cup ~ That's about the right size...

Recognized voice talent: Aya Hirano (平野綾)~ she's too famous, Haruhi Suzumiya, Lucky Star, Nana. If you still can't recognize her voice, you've gotten a hearing problem. Rie Kugimiya (釘宮理恵)~ Don't tell me you can't recognize the voice of Zero Luise from Zero Tsukaima, Shana from Shakugan no Shana, or Taiga from Toradora.

Personal comments: When I say girls beat each other up naked, I literally mean girls beat each other up, naked! From the content I've seen in the first episode, it's already beyond R-rated, it's getting pretty close to X-rated. I guess the only difference between this and full blown Hentai anime is the fact there are quite a few famous and respectable voice actress that are staffing the voice of these girls.

What did I just watch?

Gratuitous fan service...Aya Hirano's voice

full frontal nudity...Rie Kugimiya

feels so strange to hear their voice in an anime like this, considering the relative innocence of their recent work. This show far outclasses the highest levels of echi found Zero Tsukaima.

I think in the Japanese anime voice acting community, it's really no big deal what they do. The famous people sometime also do hentai anime just for fun. Take Yoko Goto (後藤邑子) for example, who is the voice of Asahina from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, she has tons (I remember it was in the 100's) of other stage name that she use for doing hundreds of hentai anime and games. They do that mostly because they don't want to be directly associated with those works.

So in this case, the significant thing here is not the fact these famous voice actress are casting it, it's the fact they're using their most famous stage name in it.
