It's not just Queen's Blade. Several other shows that were in my queue suddenly have no episodes(Majikoi Oh! Samurai Girls, Chu-Bra to name a couple). Seems to be shows that have a lot of fan service...

I note these shows also appear to be missing from the alphabetical listing.

If it was not for Queen's Blade Rebellion missing, I would think perhaps it had to do with expiring licenses (although CR had been notifying us of that it the Site News section of the forum).

On the bright side, Majikoi Oh! Samurai Girls is available at TAN, and all episodes are free to guests. It is also available at Hulu, for those that are in the U.S. and want the option of 480p instead of 360p. That is still cold comfort for people who were subscribers here at CR, however, as unless they subscribe at TAN, they have to watch ads and be satisfied with lower resolution video.

The first two Queen's Blade series are available at Hulu, although it appears the second series is available only in dub format. Again, a downgrade for CR subscribers, and this time people in Canada are left out.

Unfortunately, I don't know of any legal streaming options for Chu-Bra.

It makes me wonder what other series are missing that no one has noticed yet. A quick check of a couple of other Media Blasters titles shows that Moribito is still listed, but Ikki Tousen appears to be missing from the alphabetical listing, and as with the others mentioned, once the page is found, no episodes are present.

If this indeed turns out to be due to licenses expiring, I am going to be a bit miffed, as that would mean CR had fallen back to their old ways of not notifying us in advance.

I can't help but think that the removal of Queen's Blade Rebellion must have a been a snafu, but I expect we'll see a response on that later today.

Cobra the animation is another series affected by this.

I think it would be more accurate to say that episodes of these series are hidden, as the episodes are still available from google links (as per above comment).

My guess is that someone was fiddling with the Mature content filter and it's currently broken.

It looks like something went a little crazy.
We're correcting this issue right now.

Apologies for any inconvenience.

Edit:
We have pushed a fix & they should be available again in the next 2-4 hours, just waiting for caching to expire.
Apologies again.

Awesome, thanks!

A quick fix for this is to google crunchyroll and the episode you wanna watch.

I don't see them in the app on the Boxee Box. Search does not find them.
