Jessi on Queen's Blade

Jessi, she of the one-ep reviews, has finally gotten around to reviewing Queen's Blade. (I wasn't sure if she'd skip that one.) She put it in the Hall of Shame, quite properly IMHO.

But on her blog she says:

Completely over-the-top fanservice show, about women who fight to become queen of the land. It's so goofy that I've actually watched every episode so far, just because I need a little comedy in my life. At least there's no shitty male lead to piss me off! Also there's a demon who shoots acid from her boobs.

That makes her the only blogger I read who admits to watching the series.

I sure as hell haven't been. One ep of it was enough for me. I've thought about trying one of the later ones just to see who's around. (And maybe in hopes of seeing the angel spill her jar of cream.)

UPDATE: Pete responds.

(As I'm posting this, all the comments on this post seem to be gone, even though it shows 5 comments. I don't know what's going on. I myself didn't do anything.)

UPDATE: The comments are back. Appears to have been a transient glitch. (I deleted my comment #6 which asked where the other five had gone.)

1 Please keep her limitations in mind. Her reviews of Arashi and Sekirei were rage-inducing (in Belinda guise they were a little softer in tone but equally idiotic).

2 Steven, how many Rushunas would you rate Cattleya?  Actually, might be better to measure her in Komoes (Eiken)....

3 Really?  Idiotic?  My "limitations"?  That's really the most insulting thing I've heard so far regarding my reviews.  If you disagree with me, that's fine, but when I say, in summary, that a first episode is so completely disjointed as to be off-putting and that it seems to be the fault of the production team, that's an honest criticism and it's based on watching a heck of a lot of anime (much of it in full, despite the s1e1 moniker).  Also, when I point to the fact that a fanservice series that features large-breasted women and frequent shots of their underwear as well as a pathetic male lead who has a pretty girl literally fall into his lap is pandering to its intended otaku male audience, it's because I honestly can't see who else would be interested in it on a large scale (and I do have a friend who reads the Sekerei manga, but she knows full well that she's in the minority, just like me and Queen's Blade).

Anyway, I have no problem with you disagreeing with me.  Heck, I disagree with the author of this website  more often than not, but I don't go around calling him idiotic or implying that he has some sort of mental problems just because we have a different view of something.

Also, after having just watched Episode 9 of Queen's Blade, I would have to say that Cattleya is in a league of her own when regards to her chest.

4 Jessi, I apologize for my reader's language.

5 No need to apologize, you've been nothing but respectful.  Sometimes people just need to choose their words a bit better.

6 Database index corruption.

Not sure why; we're running an up-to-date version of MySQL and there's no sign of hardware errors.  Ran an index scan and everything's fixed now.

We do have twice-daily backups, anyway.
