Nyantype Magazine Vol. 8

September 19, 2010 By: Nopy Category: Nyantype Magazine

Nyantype Magazine vol. 8 was released at the end of May. I picked up this particular copy while I was in Japan in June. It was nice to actually only pay the price listed on the magazine for once. Dishing out 780 yen for Nyantype makes it seem so much more worth it when you normally pay $20, which includes currency conversion and shipping costs. The front cover features Nozomi from the anime Mayoi Neko Overrun. There’s also a little window in the cover offering a sneak peak into something special that they included, but more on that later.

While I have been growing tired of all the Nanoha posters from both Nyantype and Megami, I actually liked this one. It seems really shiny for some reason.

Here’s one of Yui and Azusa from K-ON. I liked how the grass was drawn so that you could see individual blades, but they don’t take your attention away from the two characters.

I don’t watch Strike Witches so I don’t know what these two are doing, but it looks like they’re dancing or something.

I watched a few episodes of Heroman when it came out, the way they portrayed America is so different from American superhero cartoons. It’s usually a dark place where villians run free and it’s up to the hero to save the day. In Heroman, it seems a lot more peaceful, and the main character is a bit girly as you can see in this  poster.

This was a cute poster. While I still haven’t seen the Haruhi movie, I’ve heard that Nagato and Asakura are best friends in it.

The maid outfits and poses were really well-drawn in this poster. Things aren’t always what they seem though. If you haven’t watched Kaichou wa Maid-sama, then you might not be aware that Aoi-chan (on the left) is actually a guy.

This was a rather simple poster. Nyantype seems to like spilling various liquids on girls.

I’m not a fan of Hakuouki Shinsengumi Kitan, but this poster of Chizuru is good for Nyantype’s standards. The background is nice and everything about Chizuru is good except her legs. They’re longer than they should be and her knees look like blocks.

I’ve seen some of these banana floaty things before and they look fun to ride. I prefer Riko’s hair in a ponytail rather in twintails.

This isn’t a poster, but it’s included in the back of the magazine. It’s a mecha musume or mobile suit girl version of Nagato from Haruhi. This illustration was done by Mika Akitaka, who has done mecha designs for various anime and even has an artbook of mobile suit girls.

Now on to that special item that was seen through the window on the front cover. As you can see, it’s one of those holographic cards that change images as you view it from different angles. It features Ako and Riko from Kissxsis in their school uniforms.

As you change the angle, the image changes to show them undressing. I just showed the first two images here, but if you want to see them go all the way, check out the hidden images.

For hidden images, read this post (numbers 04, 05, 06, 08, 09, 11, 14, 15, 17, 24).

Image 11 looks cool, and I liked 14 because it has Yukina from Senkou no Night Raid.

I can’t say I noticed many drawing mistakes in this volume, and it had a good variety of posters to look at. The mecha musume included in the back and the holographic card were both cool. This volume was certainly worth the 780 yen I spent on it.

  1. Wow, that holographic card certainly is interesting, even if I’m not a big fan of KissxSis.

    The cost of shipping magazines is one of the reasons why I kind of wished I lived in Japan… xD

  2. @Ari:
    I know, I played around with it for a while because I like holograms.

    Living in Japan would definitely save a lot on shipping.

  3. I like the details in Kaichou wa Maid-Sama’s poster. Fluffy dresses. =W=

    I’ve been seeing a lot KissXSis pictures in the magazines lately.

  4. @flyzice:
    I think someone working at Nyantype is a KissxSis fan. That would explain why there’s so many posters.

  5. So many Nanoha posters indeed. Personally, I’m more tired of the KissxSis ones. I’ve never really liked the designs or the artworks from that series.

    The hidden images in this one include some real gems. 06, 14 are lovely. And it’s always nice to see Azusa + Yui, and Sanya + Eila.

    I’m not so much a fan of 06, but I really liked 14.

  7. Oops… I meant 05 not 06. The lingerie is really pretty. ^ ^
    I’m not a big fan of apron in 06.

  8. I’m liking image 11 the most in this issue. The Strike Witches one looks really odd to me. It’s probably just the different art style to the one seen in the anime.

    It’s nice being able to get the magazines at a cheaper price. Shipping on these types of items really bumps up the price.

    That makes more sense, 05 seems more like your taste rather than 06.

    11 is good, it looks like she just broke out of some kind of experiment. I’ve only seen a couple episodes of Strike Witches so I can’t remember the art style used in the anime.
