[books] New Queen’s Gate character Iroha (yes from Samurai Spirits/Showdown!)

Heisei Democracy has picked up on a listing on japanese online bookstore MangaOh Club for a new Queen’s Gate character: Samurai Spirits’ own Iroha, illustrated by a great artist Iidzuki Tasuku (aka TentenHuuhuu). Shingo at HD commented that this’ll mark the first actual fighting game character to hit the Queen’s series. Though the Queen’s Gate spin off is still somewhat of a fledgling series, I wonder if this will probably become a regular occurrence? QG does pull characters from an alternate universe separate from the Queen’s Blade series (ie characters that we’re already familiar with…though i don’t know where Gate Opener Alice comes from), so this may be possible. I’m sure a lot of people would love to see maybe Shana or one of the Dead or Alive girls (perhaps Kasumi or Ayane? if we’re to keep with the characters with weapons theme, though there are others) make it to the series. Anyway the release seems to be set for an April 18th street date, priced I think the same as every other Queen’s series book out there. Cool stuff.

extra thoughts: I would love to see Balsa from the anime Seirei no Moribito make it here! She is an awesome character and fighter, though I doubt she’ll make an appearance cuz she’d probably whoop on you so bad for trying to cast off her clothes…

    That’s pretty awesome, I’d like to see what else they’ll come up with for Queen’s Gate :3
