QB Anthology 1

And final_agent brings us the last chapter (actually, the first one) of the Anthology vol 1, a story about Leina & Elina by little-known mangaka Sawaki Takahiro, download it here:

Supposedly, in the last page there's a pun by Setra about the "staff of wisdom" or "wisdom and strength", but we couldn't figure out how to explain it properly anyways.
Next is the revision of the whole volume, and then we move on to the next manga!

Queen's Gate Novels Summary (II): The Time Traveler

Resuming from last time, here's the second installment of the QG novels!

As before, note that there may be some NSFW pics, and even if the summary doesn't make sense at times, I still tried my best to get a coherent story out of the moonrunes.
We left Alice and Dorothy after they crossed the gate, but can they find Alice's mother, still missing...?

QB Anthology 13

Another chapter of the QB Anthology by final_agent, we're reaching the end of the first volume with a long, fanservice-y chapter about Elina and Leina drawn by hentai mangaka Shimamoto Harumi, get it here:

Edit: Updated the What is QB? page with QG Suchie-Pai's proper cover and release date.

QB Anthology 11

Final_agent brings us another chapter of the anthology, this time drawn by Koshijima Kazutomo (as usual, a mangaka known for making doujins), that pays a lot of attention to the details in Irma's story, about her attempts to take Leina down (of course, it didn't quite end like this in the actual story). Download it here:

Queen's Blade Rebellion Bitoshi Senki Upheaval

Here's the translated full volume of Upheaval, compiling the second arc of the Illustrated Stories for your convenience!

Besides the chapters found online and the extra chapters, it has some improved profiles and in-character explanations, so don't miss it. Also, I'm not sure if this was mentioned before, but "Bitoshi Senki" means "Beautiful Fighters' War Records".

Volume 2: Mirrors/Sendspace
Drama CD 2: Mirrors/Sendspace

The Drama CD that came along with it might be detailing the "embarassing adventure" the twins talked about in chapter 3... or who knows, really :p

I'm still working on the 2nd QG novel, it's coming soon-ish.
