I'm more likely to have Queen's Blade on my list, rather than RAINBOW Nisha.

Opinion: I make no excuses. This series sounds downright vapid. But, the girls look cute, and every now and then I like to watch a series and just veg out. I'd call it a guilty pleasure, except I'm a man who proudly admits he's a Sentai fan. Its possible I'm past the concept.

Going past five episodes? ...Why? I've got better stuff to get with my (very) li…
