This volume of Megami Magazine features the girls of Toradora on the front cover (yay!) As you can probably tell from my other posts, Toradora is one of my favourite series so I was really happy to see Ami, Minori and Taiga on the cover ^.^
There were a lot of good posters this time around as you can see:
I found Fuuko to be a bit annoying, but her conversations with Tomoya were hilarious.
Index’s battle costume is awesome. Too bad they didn’t have Mikoto or Kuroko dress up as well.
I think the goth-loli fashion looks weird in real life, but it looks really nice in anime.
It’s nice to see that Nanoha still makes some appearances in Megami Magazine every once in a while. I’m still waiting for the movie to come out.
I’ve heard of a root beer float, but I’ve never seen whipped cream on melon soda, much less with a naked girl on top. Akikan sure does provide a lot of strange fanservice.
That’s a scary dog sitting on the girl o.o
Rin sure knows how to tease people, but at least Kuro seems to be enjoying herself.
This is my favourite poster in this volume. I like how the three of them have their hair tied up in ponytails, and although I have a bunch of Toradora posters already, more is always better.
This girl was also in the previous volume. I looked up the title and she’s from an eroge called “Tayutama – Kiss on My Diety” which is being aired as an anime this spring. The plot seems kinda dumb, but the character designs are nice, so there’s probably going to be more posters to come.
Queen’s Blade will also be airing this spring, but it seems more like an excuse to show off scantily clad women fighting with swords.
If anyone knows where I can find the wallpaper for the Hayate no Gotoku image above, I’d appreciate it if you left a comment here pointing the way :)
There were several pages in this volume that featured the main female cast of Toradora. I liked the little chart they have at the top left beside Minori and Taiga that shows everyone’s relationship with each other.
Ami and Minori get their own pages here. With the way things turned out in episode 24, I wonder if anything will happen between the two of them ;)
Clannad After Story turned out to have a happy ending, which is good since everyone is happy now, but I thought it basically turned the last part of the series into filler since it’s actually a “what if” scenario.
Myself;Yourself Sorezore no Finale is being released on April 30 for the PS2. Nowadays it seems that the only games that come out for the PS2 are dating games.
After watching a few episodes of Haruhi-chan and Churuya-san, I’d have to say Haruhi-chan is better. The animation in Haruhi-chan is more detailed (they don’t have dots for eyes) and it’s actually funny, unlike Churuya-san which just makes no sense at all.
There are a lot of risque figures that are/will be available. Sometimes I wonder what the girlfriends of the guys that collect more revealing figures think about them (if these girlfriends even exist).
Here’s some more anime merchandise in the form of posters, DVDs and alarm clocks.
This is the first time I’ve heard of Chaos (character operating system). At first I thought it was some kind of program that turned your operating system on your computer to some anime theme, but it turns out to be some special cards for some game.
Weib Scharz is also now selling Lucky Star cards.
The large poster that came with this volume seems to be bunny themed.
On one side are the girls from Kannagi in bunny costumes.
On the other side are Minori and Taiga from Toradora in bunny costumes. It’s too bad they’re missing Ami in this poster, she’s my favourite character :(
This volume of Megami Magazine is my favourite so far, mainly because it has more Toradora stuff. But besides Toradora, I didn’t think there were many bland posters this time around and there was some variety of shows both old, current, and upcoming.
