HOUSTON, April 17, 2012 — Sentai Filmworks is pleased to announce their acquisition of the season’s hottest swordswomen in Queen’s Blade Rebellion. With series composition by Hideki Shirane (Dream Eater Merry, Kill Me Baby!) and music by Masaru Yokoyama (Kimikiss: Pure Rouge, Freezing), five out five rebels agree that this series will kick some royal booty!
Power corrupts, and it when it appears that the once noble Queen Claudette’s ways have turned to oppression and heretical persecution, it’s up to a new generation of warriors to step up to the plate armor to bear arms and bare their naked fury in open rebellion! The odds may seem unfairly stacked in favor of the Amazonian ranks of the queen, doubly supported by her power of writ and assassins. But the incredible wits and assets of the dazzling array of daring damsels willing to risk their gorgeous skins and put their lithesome bodies on line against her, might just expose a few unexpected weaknesses in the queen’s support! It’s the wildest fantasy ever as an unprecedented force of fabulous female fighters… from Elven alchemist to half-demon berserker, from undead pirate captain to dragon maid… all come together with the goal of stripping the queen from her throne in QUEEN’S BLADE: REBELLION!
Queen’s Blade Rebellion will begin release through select digital outlets soon with a home video release to follow.
