Hobby Stock beat the official Queen’s Blade site to the scoop today, presenting preorders for a pair of new October-release QB books: Claudette, the oldest sister in the family of Hisayuki Hirokazu (Wikipedia) designed characters also containing Reina and Erina, and Merona, an F.S designed ooze creature who looks like a bunny girl but the official character page emphatically states isn’t. In other news, the official site updated today with word that Nanael is to grace the cover of an [ERO] hug pillow, notable for its ability to be customized like a kisekae doll to your choice of costume (front side only) which they will custom print for you based on your specifications (you don’t change actual clothing on the pillow). Preorders for the 120 x 50 cm, 15,000 yen pillow are now open and shipping is expected in December; a proxy service will likely have to be deployed for those desirous of the item as it’s only available to be shipped inside Japan.

I’ve never been too enthralled by Hisayuki’s characters, but the F.S designs catch my attention every time…
