[Books] Choose your next Queen’s Blade fighter (part 2)

Well the voting is over, and the winner for the fan’s pick was Type-C black (supabota you got your pick!), with Type-C white coming in a very close second. In fact it was so close that they’re considering doing something with Type-C white as well. Anywho the next part to this is now to come up with a name for her. When coming up with a name they’re asking for fans to come up with both a title and name (so for example something like “The Steel Princess Yuumil” or “The Angel of Light Nanael”).

For those who can type in Japanese, here’s the site for your brainstorming pleasure:

[Figures] Latest Shining Wind figures (niiiice!)

Yay new Shining Wind figures~
Shine na Blog recently updated with nice news for Shining Wind fans as well as progress shots of three new figures to be coming out, two presumably by Kotobukiya and one from Orchid Seed. First off is that the latest Shining Wind artbook from Tony has been selling very well, and merchandise makers who have taken a look at the book have come to the producer of the series (the guy who runs Shine na Blog) asking if they can create some goods based on the artwork found within. No reason for a guy to refuse, right? So it looks like there’ll be quite a bit more Shining Wind goods coming in the future.

 

So first good news out of the way, next comes the good stuff, the new figures. I think the latest two are based on artwork in the new book from a maker, and the other one is from the Fan Festa software for PC (one of those things that has a collection of desktop themes/wallpapers/screen savers/etc). The third figure is based off a short novel surrounding Shining Wind.

 

First up is most likely from the artbook, and from the goods makers. According to the site she’s 90% complete and it sure looks like it. She is Celestia, Elven Queen of the Forest Kingdom of Astraea. Xecty was made in her image.

 

 

The second figure is a maid version of Clalaclan Philias which is roughly 60% complete and looks like she’s based off the Fan Festa stuff.


hires version at moe imouto

 

They are both totally :drool: I can’t wait for them to be painted! They may be the best Shining figures yet imo… I especially like Celestia’s flower ornament thing in her hair…

 

The third figure is Shiina Kanon, and she is from Orchid Seed. The illustration she’s based off of is the Tony illustrated cover of a short novel based on Shining Wind called “Another Link – Onifuuji no Kenshi” (the demon exorcist fencer or something like that, referring to Shiina).

 

She’s rockin the twin tails for your TT lovers :P

[Books] Choose your next Queen’s Blade fighter

Sure has been awhile since I last had any other update besides Cherry Girls lol. Anyway a little while ago Hobby Japan held an event where fans could submit their own designs for a Queen’s Blade character. HJ has chosen a design from those submissions and seems will be giving the design her own book, but before that they want fans’ opinions on how to adapt the original design for the Queen’s Blade universe. To this end they’re holding a survey for fans to choose out of three designs, two with alternate colors. Cool stuff.
