There's something I little off-putting about an anime like queen's blade taking itself seriously but I'm still having fun. But where's cattleya and melpha?

I don't know, but I can't wait for Menace and Airi to show themselves too, how many episodes are there supposed to be?

Indeed. At least this story attempts to have a coherent plot to accompany the fanservice. Kanokon was just sexually suggestive jokes from beginning to end.

And of course, groups will be tripping over each other, trying to inflate their ego by having stuff like K-On worked on and released. (I've seen like five/six groups working on that.)

Kanokon was more like because it never tried to be anything more then a sex-fest. Queen's Blade is trying to have both over the top fanservice and storytelling, but is falling short on the second part so far, mainly because, well...it doesn't HAVE a story. "babes fighting to be queen" does not qualify as one. Kanokon didn't have a story either, but at least wasn't trying to have one.

Why do people think that just because an anime series don't have a code geass or death note quality story it doesn't have a story at all?

Because when a show usually has this level of ecchi then it doesn't, though this is one of the rare cases when it has both. It has nothing to do with Death Note or Code Geass.

You are just trying to simplify Queen's Blade's story. It's like saying Gundam 00 is just "Mans fighting for world peace" (yes, based on the first 2 eps, that's all people could make out, and by using your kind of judgement).

Seem like you don't want to think about the benefit of becoming the Queen, and the reason why they have to fight for that position, which is actually the show's story all about.
In fact, Kanokon does have its story, but it try too hard at fanservice that it became a mess, while Queen's Blade is doing the opposite. QB's plot is actually moving.

I'm not making I direct comparison, I'm just using those anime series because of there quality of story, I'm just talking about that type of quality of story.

Name one anime series with Queen's blade eechi that doesn't have a "story". No matter how bad or convoluted a story is, it's still a story. I'm not defending Queen's blade story, as right now it's very weak but anime is so much more than story.

Not trying to be a grammar Nazi here, but it's ecchi, not eechi.

Probably because to those people shows like Code Geass or Death Note are the only kinds they've ever really watched.

anime is like any other form of media entertaiment, different show has different way to satisfy their specific audience. Sorry to say this, but when people compare queen's blade compare to ikkitousen or kanokon, that's just dumb.

kanokon is a ecchi school drama comedy
QB is a ecchi action show...
they are two different typr of show

And ikkitousen of course has better story line than QB, because it is a spin off romance of 3 kingdom story...it's a story written in 14th centry... and been passed down all these years. it has been said since the 1st few page of this thread. DO NOT EXPECT QB has AMAZING STORYLINE

I think we've yet to see Risty's, Nanael's, Claudette's, and Elina's oppai, everyone else had a turn somewhere - Promo, EP1, EP2, OP, ED - unless you count doujins

It's a shame. Queens Blade don't have the greatest plot of all time, but it's fun, it's nice and got BOOBS. Don't need any other reason to watch the series, hehe.

BTW, Neko Arc rocks.

I was expecting ep 2 to be like ep 1, but apparently not. XD Not so sure about the story at the moment...will continue watching for a bit to see.

My stance on this show is that it is SO bad that it is good. The animation quality on it is fairly high, though the level of fanservice and eechi in it is insane! This is the type of show that you get your friends(unless you are very ronery) together and get a good laugh at stuff like exploding acid tits.

It's nice to have a fanservice anime for a change where I can actually savor quite a few of the character designs employed for the purpose. I don't usually watch a lot of fanservice-based anime because of a scarcity of truly appealing (for me) characters generally doesn't make up for the lack of a useful plot. Here though, while there are still quite a few girls I'm not that keen on, the likes of Tomoe, Menace, and a few others make it worthwhile.

But the real fun lies in observing all the holier-than-thou-ness this show seems to inspire in quite a few folks.
