The OVA will tell the story of a beautiful warrior named Elina, who will be voiced by Kaori Mizuhashi, and how she finds herself embroiled in a fight with Airi, to be voiced by Kanae Ito, over an amnesiac boy named Michel.

Its official tagline is "More strongly, more violently reboot!" which refers to how the OVA will dig back into the first series' origin from nine years ago, while also depicting never-before-seen views of the "Queen's Blade" world.

Japanese publishing company Hobby Japan is credited with the original work. Miyagomono-ya Hans, on the other hand, is responsible for the original concept and supervision. The animation is done by Fortes under the direction of Gabi Kisaragi, while Ryunosuke Kingetsu takes on the writing of the script in collaboration with Okita.

Osaki is assisted by Takayuki Noguchi and Yukiko Ishibashi with the character designs, both of whom are also credited as chief animation directors for the upcoming OVA.
