The 110th volume of Megami Magazine features Saki and Nodoka from the mahjong anime “Saki” on the front cover. I’m not following Saki right now, but from the images that I’ve seen it looks like more than just mahjong goes on in the anime.
The posters this time around were pretty nice, as you can see below:
On the first page are the moe girls of K-ON. Personally, I liked Mio at the start, but by the end of the series, my favourite character had shifted to Mugi. It makes me sad that they decided not to include her in this poster :(
Like I said before, I really liked the animation in Tayutama, but the story just couldn’t keep me watching so it’s nice to get some posters I can put on my wall.
Yay for Haruhi-chan!
I haven’t seen Basquash before, but from the size of those oppai, I’m guessing there’s quite a bit of fanservice in it.
It’s funny how there seems to be so many more female fighters in Valkyria Chronicles than in real life. I’m not complaining though, especially if there’s more Alicia.
Yoko doing cosplay is always a plus. I like the chinese dress best out of the four. In case you’re wondering where all the costumes are from, it’s actually from Yoko’s first album which you can read about here.
Here’s the first of the Saki posters in this volume. It looks like it belongs on a dakimakura instead of a poster, but I like it, she looks so cute with those bunny ears.
On the reverse side of the bunny ear girl are the girls from Queen’s Blade. Strangely enough, even though they’re in bathing suits on the beach, they don’t seem to be flashing as much skin as in the anime.
I can’t wait for the Kowarekake no Orgol anime to come out. If any of you don’t know what it is, it’s basically something being put together by amateurs (not a production studio) that has a similar story to Chobits. From the trailers on youtube, the animation quality looks even better than some work that actual anime studios have put out.
This volume’s Girls Avenue girl has some big assets :)
I wonder how those two can stand the smell of wet dog.
This is the image that they used on the from cover of the magazine. Unfortunately, they decided to just use a generic background which is a bit upsetting. They could have at least drawn in some scenery or something.
Ever play strip poker? what about strip mahjong? Here’s undeniable proof that there’s more going on in Saki than just mahjong playing. Poor Nodoka looks like she lost a few too many times.
I’m not sure what’s up with this duck outfit, it looks kinda weird.
Cal’s a bit too young for my tastes. I wonder if Phantom will get to the point where Cal becomes Drei, she looks way cooler that way: http://gelbooru.com/index.php?page=post&s=view&id=148924
In the non-poster parts of the magazine there’s some stats and bios of all the Queen’s Blade characters. I’m sure fans would like to know the actual measurements of their favourite girls.
I still haven’t gotten around to watching the second season of Hayate no Gotoku 2, but it looks like Hinagiku is in it quite a bit, all the more reason to watch it soon.
In case anyone was wondering what the voices behind the characters of K-ON actually look like, here they are.
There was no large poster in this volume, but I did get some nice K-ON stickers instead (oh joy -.-).
Some info on Kowarekake no Orgol, which will be coming out this summer.
Weib Schwarz really does have a lot of advertisements. I’m thinking of actually getting some cards now, they look nice, and the gameplay is explained in the anime Weib Survive (Weiss Survive).
Utawarerumono fans probably already know this, but the OVA came out last month.
Besides not having Mugi in a poster, and replacing the regular large poster with some stickers, I actually liked this volume. My favourite posters would be the Tayutama one, the one of Yoko, the bunny-ears girl, and the Kowarekake no Orgol one.
