Nyantype Magazine Vol. 3

March 04, 2010 By: Nopy Category: Nyantype Magazine

I don’t remember the last time I took a look at Nyantype Magazine. Since they don’t release on a regular schedule, I kinda forgot to review them after volume 2. Anyways, better late than never, so here’s a look at the 3rd volume of Nyantype Magazine.

This volume starts out with a pinup poster of loli Nanoha and her two non-magical friends. The one thing I like about Nyantype over Megami is that they always have one of these larger pinup posters that are 3 sheets long instead of the regular two.

On the reverse side is Mikuru dressed in some really nice clothes. Unfortunately for her, she forgot to check the weather report. I bet Kyon would be jumping for joy though.

I didn’t think Kurimu-chan was a very clumsy character from watching Seitokai no Ichizon, but I wonder how she ended up in that position with the milk only falling on her in what seems like groups of droplets instead of spilling across her clothes.

Is it just me, or does it look like an invisible hand is lifting up Haruka’s dress? There’s no way normal clothes act like that.

I never really got into the Strike Witches craze, but was the girl on the left always so… droopy? It also looks like one of her hands just disappears into nowhere.

I guess at least one good thing came out of Princess Lover :)

Can someone explain why they have microphones. I thought Koihime Musou was set in some ancient land or something.

Like I’ve said in previous posts, Horo always appears naked in posters. This only further proves my point.

It’s been a while since I saw Saki poster, but then again, this volume came out a long time ago. I was surprised at how fast everyone forgot about the anime, I guess it wasn’t really very good.

I wonder if To Aru Kagaku no Railgun will turn out like Saki after it ends. Anyways, I thought this poster looked a bit off, I think it might be the way Mikoto’s eyes are drawn, it looks like she’s cross-eyed.

The Sacred Blacksmith also seems to have dropped off the radar. Just goes to show that fanservice won’t save a bad anime.

I can’t believe that Kissxsis is actually getting a full tv anime and not just another OVA. It just doesn’t make sense to me to have an anime that teases you so much without a real plot.

The existence of Queen’s Blade also doesn’t make much sense to me. It’s kinda in that limbo zone between 17+ and 18+.

As for Asura Cryin, I thought it had some potential, but it just tried too hard to combine too many genres into one anime.

Fight! Ippatsu Juuden-chan is also one of those fanservice-based anime. As much as I liked the character designs, the plot wasn’t that good, and I’d bet that no one will remember it 10 years from now.

Shakugan no Shana was at least a decent anime. It had a plot that sorta made sense and it wasn’t jam packed with fanservice, just enough to keep people happy.

Besides the posters, Nyantype also had some pages dedicated to the Seitokai no Ichizon girls. I highly doubt you’d ever actually see them in the kind of situation shown above except in Ken’s fantasies. I’m still kinda upset that the anime is over, it was one of my favourites of the year.

When I watched Macross Frontier, I thought that Ranka would be everyone’s favourite character, but apparently Sheryl is more popular. I wonder if it’s because of her personality or her character design.

Nendoroid Luka came out a while ago, but I won’t be getting her for a couple months since I ordered her from an American store and they don’t release there until later :(

I watched the first episode of Kanamemo and it was too childish for me. I don’t get why they’d put an ad in Nyantype Magazine since it seems like it’s geared towards children.

Rather than coming with a free poster, this volume included this really nice Nanoha illustration collection. Most of these images have been used in Nyantype already, but it’s nice to have them all in one little booklet if you’re a Nanoha fan. The images come from all of the Nanoha series.

When I first watched Triangle Heart, I never would have imagined that the little sister in the anime would ever get her own series, or that it’d turn out as successful as it did. It’s a good thing that people liked Nanoha though, or else we wouldn’t have all this pretty artwork.

This volume had it’s high and low points. The poster of Mikuru was really nice, and I’ve hung it up in my room. The Nanoha illustration collection was also a welcome treat. On the other hand, some of the posters were less than perfect. Missing limbs and crossed eyes just make a good illustration horrible. Unless there’s something you really want in this volume, it may be better just to pass it up.

  3. I liked the nanoha illustration book~~
    Nyantype is montly or bimontly?

  4. @moemoekyun:
    The Nanoha booklet makes getting this volume worthwhile.

    At first Nyantype seemed to release randomly, but it looks like now they’re releasing bimonthly.

  5. Some nice artwork in there. Nyantype usually has some really nice Koihime Musou posters :D.

    The Koihime Musou poster is meant to be the 3 “sisters” (although Kanu, Chouhii & Ryubii aren’t actual sisters they swear sisterhood in the anime) copying the 3 Chou sisters who sing in the anime – Chouhou, Choukaku & Chouryou. There’s also the “Live Revolution” thing where they performed just before the first episode of Shin Koihime Musou aired.

    In the anime the Chou sisters are given a magical book, which Chouhou (blue hair) uses to enchant some Jewels that amplify their voice. A link here to the 3 Chou sisters. (I hope html works in the comments)

  6. @BioToxic:
