I only watched the part with Lilliana and Elina.

I don't get how Elina got all evil/crazy? She's not even trying to find Reina.

I watched the ep subbed in my language today, and it got quite better than I previously thought. Huit's friend is a newspapaer editor, and huit is his boss. Mirim's mom and sisters are actually mentioned in the episode, so she is not that out of character. And there's even an explanation why Branwen is fighting in the capital. The part with Luna Luna says something about a prophecy, but nothing more than that. I hope the story unfolds better from now on.

Just watched the first episode and... Well, for the moment it's clearly quite a mess, as some of you already noticed there are too many new characters introduced in such a short episode... And the ending theme is pure bullshit, how can this thing sucks so much compared to the precedent ones ?! Also, can't get used to the new cast, it's so weird, even for QB...

But good point: the "new" Elina saved the show for me, totally love her !

Are Claudette, Elina and Ymir the only recurring characters here? I hope there's more.

I also hope there's some sort of explanation of how Ymir's change in character (and design).

I've never watched Queen's Blade, and I have no interest in it. However, the strangeness may be a reflection of this season's director.

I'm actually surprised that few people have reacted to the choice of director. His works tend to be hammered by everyone - they're strange, clunky, trashy, porn-like (in terms of construction and poor attention to storytelling), often incomprehensible and irreverent toward source material. Most viewers have nothing good to say, and I'm inclined to believe that his works are intentionally dodgy.

Indeed, the one sequence of QB:R that I've seen has very amateurish, comically poor cinematography.

Nevertheless, there are those who find things to enjoy amidst the craziness. Clunkiness aside, there's a surreal/ephemeral quality to his OVAs through his strange pacing/jumping flow of time (some cannot be understood without familiarity with the original work since story concepts and characters are briefly presented with no context), and his use of audio can be simultaneously pleasing and awkward. It's lower echelon work for sure, but sometimes that can be a curiosity.

As long as the animation team keeps the character personalities in tact from the Hobby Japan stories and stick to the general story, I'll be satisfied (though I wouldn't mind a few changes to the execution of Branwen and Aldra). I wasn't going into the series with high expectations anyway.

Though, it's a shame this story arc doesn't have much in the way of yuri undertones; I'll miss those.

that's... pretty scary. I really hoped for an evolution over the last seasons with a focus in the story and better character development.

Having technology in QB just feels out of place somehow.

Think of it as a golem. Actually it wouldn't be bad if it was a clay golem.

Any bets the unseen Swap Witch has anything to do with the girls going evil?

nah, don't think so. Elina was always a sadistic bitch. Ymir is in for the money, and so will be Mirim. Claudette is actually doing something good for the continent getting rid of aristocracy and allowing science to flourish. Siggy... well, she is from the church, just doing her job. Branwen is being slaved. And that's pretty much it.

Other than the marshland witch, I've never seem queen's blade like a good x evil struggle.

Well, don't know excatly the original QBR story... But it's possible the Witch controls Ymir, Elina and Claudette using their "dark side", their defects in the same way she inflicted curses to girls of previous cast depending their personnalities (Risty's interest in treasures becomes perepetual hungriness, Alleyne's stubbornness forces her to be stuck in forest, etc...).

Of course this is just a personnal hypothesis nonsense, don't have evidences of this theory.

Spoiler for Frustration:

Pretty much most of the main cast will comeback with a redesign.
Some though have been "replaced", Melpha to Shiggy, Nanael with Lyra and so on.

Possible they'll have a comeback in the anime. More girls the better.

As far as I know, Nanael might come back as Lyra's mentor.
