They claimed to have the original settings unchanged, but they can't get away without tuning the story a bit.

I really don't care for the new art style. Echidna got an upgrade, but that's really more of a testament to how much I normally dislike her design.

What a mistake.

Queen's Gate anime would probably be a licensing nightmare.

Alice is the one good thing about QG. Other characters are either stolen from other franchises, and/or shit.

I get what they're going for with the redesigns, and I think that it speaks to a lack of understanding as to why QB is over-the-hill.

Nobody wanted a darker and edgier QB, and the designs for Grimoire have been terrible. Inferior redesigns of the original cast is just putting dirt on the grave. If they were going to insist on not using Rin Sin's designs in order to signal that this was a rebirth, they should have grabbed a popular artist in a similar vein. Yaegashi Nan, Tsunako, etc.
>>
>>159246601
I like them all, specially the new Reina and Elina, the only one i don't approve is Melpha, holy yoga pants was the whole points of the character for me.
>>
>>159246601
Maybe the only the time the re-designs are actually better than the original.
>>
New Echidna actually looks like a dark elf now, that's an improvement.

They wouldn't be able to justice to Alice's fat ass and thighs in an anime anyway, lolis don't get fanservice anymore.

i dont want to be one of those people that complain everytime they change something, but they look like characters from a chinese bootleg show now
>>
>>159246522
>>159246601
They others are OK but what the fuck did they do to my Melpha? Also that Menace/Anakaris bit was pretty funny.
>>
>>159246601
On the plus side Reina no longer has the downs, so that's good.

Nowa now looks less like a small titty orangutan, but more like a Tony Taka character, so that's a draw there.

I do not approve of Elina losing her tiger stripes, and Melpha now looks more like a dumb, generic RPG character and less like someone's mom Larping as one, which kills the boner.

Everyone else is fine, really.
>>
>>159252088
I agree, and it's not just the artist. Her new costume looks boring and ditched the appeal of her old costume by not having a skintight white full body suit under her clothes.
>>
>>159246601
>taking Elina's ruff
Fucking unforgiveable
>>
>>159253532

Melpha came too early, before people could appreciate the ridiculous thickness she offered. She really would be the obvious choice for a mom to cosplay and embarrass her son.
>>
>>159246522
Melpha looks so generic now.

It looks like they "cleaned" up the designs and made everything shinier, but it only made the designs even more bland and forgettable. Echidna is the only one that kind of works.

Run-of-the-mill fantasy H game art
>>
>>159246522
>>159246601
I really miss F.S.'s art and Oda Non's.
>>
From the original the only girls of any note were Risty, Echidna, Cattelya and Menace anyways. The yandere sister's antics were somewhat fun though her design was unremarkable.

The rest of the girls are forgettable and blend in with so many others from a myriad of similar series. They should have identified their most unique, stand-out designs and built off them.
>>
I hope my slavefu gets more screen time.
this is a new anime season we're talking about right?
>>
Honestly worried about them toning down the service for some reason. I'm irrationally worried that they'll tone it down for a more serious tone.

They might get rid of Reina's and Nowa's god tier asses. I can't handle that shit man.

>replacing Hirokazu Hisayuki designs for a rebooted cash grab

Why, Why? He's one of the underrated designers out there due to Mai Hime, Queens Blade and Dendoh.

I don't know how to get upset over this
>>
>>159255904
It's better than 90% of new shows
>>
>>159246601
The new designs all look a degree more generic. Why would they do this?
>>
>>159257914
I thought the original anime designs were adapted by rin-sin? either way I liked them better.
>>
>>159257428
i'm very optimistic, since the new art shows wider hips for Reina and Elina

I really love this artist. I'm hyped but also cautious after what happened to 7sins.

Woah, woah. What the fuck is this? Please tell me I'm being rused here.

Agreed. Reina in particular is a huge upgrade.

Also where is Nyx?

Risty's redesign better be wild as fuck.

That's Anakaris from Darkstalkers you idiot, it's a joke.

I'm afraid of how Cattleya will look now, new artist can't seem to draw older women for shit.
>>
>>159258832
>I thought the original anime designs were adapted by rin-sin?

Yeah well I thought Hisayuki did the original designs when first saw it but other designers are involved. I am much worried Hisayuki will never get any work because his works are outdated.
>>
>>159258089
No it isn't
>>
>>159246522
I'd rather have a proper show for Sin.

>>159260385
It's dead. Though to be frank so was Queen's blade before they brought it back from the dead in this last attempt to make it as popular as it was in its peak.

>>159260385
It's too late, they ruined it
I don't even want to look at the figures now

Because the old designs were all over the place due to all the different designers all over japan working on them, consistency be damned.
Now they're all under one guy who know his anatomy.

>Now they're all under one guy who know his anatomy.

Well he's doing a poor job working on these designs and everybody hates it.
>>
>>159261436

>Now they're all under one guy

You realize that the designs of the first series were all adapted into a consistent style by Rin Sin, right? You don't have book Elina standing next to book Melona.
>>
>>159261600
They changed something, of course dumb peoples would hate it.
>>
>>159261757
Yes you're thinking of the animation chara designer for the anime. Here the original themselves are being reworked. That's a completely different thing.
>>
>>159246522
>>159246601
They already ruined Echidna. Dropped.
>>
On the plus side, it looks like Elina is the protagonist. I've always said that QB would have been much improved in terms of tone and story flow if she were the main character.

BUT WHY DID THEY HAVE TO FUCK THE ART?
>>
>>159263964
Elina is one of the worst QBs, a good design sure but terrible character. She's even worse as a protag the Hide and Seek manga showed as much.
>>
>>159263964
She already have the MC spot on a QB manga, but it was far from good.
>>
>>159246522
Why reboot? We need for a decwnt adaptation of Rebellion.
>>
>>159264514
Rebellion sucks compared to the original Queen's Blade
>>
>>159264639
I 100% guarantee you Rebellion will be better than this.
>>
>>159260053
Kaneko Hiraku's Cattleya was perfection, so I'm prepared to be disappointed.
>>
>>159264256
>>159264321

H&S was what showed her to be a superior choice for protagonist, though.

Reina was a typical grouchy goody two shoes on a quest to get stronger. I don't think that she was the absolute worst choice for protagonist, but she was definitely the most boring. That's one of the biggest criticisms that people have of the original series.
Elina was somewhat one-dimensional in the anime, but you'd have to make a concentrated effort to write a protagonist that way while writing more fleshed out characters around her. H&S Elina was more chaotic neutral. She wasn't a complete cunt who would never warm up to anyone not named Reina or Claudette, but she was a little unpredictable in regards to how honorable she'd be, and they turned her reaction face factor into something mildly genki.

Which protagonist sounds like a better base to build an interesting story around?
>>
>>159265036
Honestly Tomoe or Risty would make great protagonists, maybe something similar to the larger role they had in the Exiled Warrior manga. At the very least they would be better than Reina and Elina.
>>
>>159260487
>filename
but having a girlfriend and not being happy getting figs as a present is as not-4chan as it gets.
>>
>>159261320
rebellion had some QUALITY and less inspired designs, but there was nothing wrong with how the anime adapted them in general. vanquished queens was by a different studio. I wonder who will be animating this since arms seems to be dead.
>>
>>159266153

I'd put Elina or Nanael in the protagonist spot. I've never liked that butch Risty or her stupid hair.

I would agree that H&S isn't a must-read or anything, but it was more due to the fact it (along with the other QB manga) felt like it was never meant to run 120+ chapters and have serious progression through set story arcs with a serious conclusion. It certainly wasn't due to its somewhat playful take on Elina, and it was okay for what it was.
>>
>>159267003
You have it backward. It refers to the board, not the OP, who, as always, was a fag.
>>
>>159267237
I just meant character wise they actually have a stake in winning the tournament. Risty is one of the few that actually had a reason to even want to be queen.
>>
>>159267594

Motivations can be introduced.
