QB Exiled Warrior 4

So this one took a bit longer than usual, but besides it having more pages than the previous chapters, our typesetter needs to rest his wrist, let's hope he's back into shape soon.

Anyways, here are the Musha-Miko and company: 

Download it here, and enjoy!

QB Battle 34.2

Just a light update for a break, this time.

Mirrors: App + Media + Extra (update) + Fanmade (update)
Sendspace: App + Media + Extra (update) + Fanmade (update)

Adapted Marvel's Colossus. It'd have been awesome if the artist who made Colossus' cover did the rest of the book, but oh well...

With that, we finally got all the Marvel Battlebooks (about time?). I hear Sabertooth, Doctor Doom, Daredevil, Fairchild and my favourite superhero, Deadpool, were supposed to be released as well, but it seems the series flopped pretty hard and they were scrapped.

Also, I've only seen an improved model of Alicia's figure in this month's Hobby Japan Magazine's scans. If that's the only bit of QB news we're getting this month, colour me surprised :S

Coming next: Juri Han, a few pesky bugs corrected, and since we just happened to hit another milestone, a surprise character to celebrate (yay for celebrations!)

Edit (08-28): I just knew that couldn't be all. Yesterday's C3xHobby 2012 event confirmed Grimoire's Alicia and Zara for November. Go Grimoire go!

Queen's Blade Backstories: Rebellion Aldra and Izumi

The HJ scans are somewhat tardy this month... but we'll get to those eventually. In the meantime, did you know that this humble blog just made 2 years this month? Thank you very much to all you guys who drop by regularly, and especially to those of you who comment and liven this up!

To celebrate, I thought it'd be a good time to start translating what I'm going to call the "backstories": those blurbs of text in the backcover of the books, that seem to be some kind of battle-oriented prologue. The idea was to go from newest to oldest, but I couldn't resist the puppy eyes below.

Were we missing the profile of the last returning character? Yes we were, and finally revealed in the third volume of the illustrated stories, here it is:

Corrected Rebellion Aldra's overpowered Hellfire, fixed some bugs with Dlanor and Night Owl, and added the fanmade Angel (thanks to Rumormonger Baofu):

Coming next, Marvel's Colossus.

The QB site was finally updated a few hours ago, so here are the juicy profiles of the new characters.
If you missed the Grimoire prologue, check the comments of the previous post for an awesome translation by Maku.
