Volume 9 of Nyantype was released at the end of June and features Mio in her black bikini on the cover. Since this volume comes in the middle of summer, it’s full of swimsuit and summer-related posters as you can see below.
The first poster is of Subaru and Teana from the Nanoha series cooling down with some water. The use of see-through wet clothes is common in anime so I would’ve expected the artists at Nyantype to have been able to make this one look better. Some parts, like Subaru’s pants, look like they’re melting rather than just being wet.
I liked this Yuri + Kanade poster.
The first of the swimsuit posters has all the members of Houkago Tea Time on the beach.
Misaki from Kaichou wa Maid-sama seems to look cuter in these posters than in the anime. I like how they drew Sakura’s hand a bit larger to show distance, as well as the flowers in the back.
Here’s one for the Strike Witches fans out there.
I thought Mizuki looked weird with a tan. I also found it a bit strange that there’s a shadow of a palm tree, but Mizuki herself doesn’t have a shadow.
I really liked this poster. If you’ve been following my blog posts for a while, you’ll know I liked the character designs fro Mayoi Neko Overrun and that Chise was my favourite character. I’m glad to see Nyantype was able to keep the same artstyle here.
Seeing this Shana poster reminds me of how long I’ve been watching anime now. The season that Shakugan no Shana came out was the time when I started reading about anime before they aired, rather than just watch whatever people recommeneded. The thing I like about this poster is Shana’s wavy hair.
Another cute poster.
The Working!! girls seem to end up on the floor a lot when it comes to Nyantype posters. I guess it’s easy to draw floors for a poster, but do they actually fall down a lot in the anime too?
Included with this volume was a CD with some of the seiyuu from Strike Witches. I don’t know Japanese so I can’t tell you what’s on it.
For hidden images, read this post (numbers 05, 08, 09, 10, 13, 15, 18).
I wasn’t too impressed with the hidden images, they were all focused on fanservice.
If you like having swimsuit or summer-related posters, then this volume of Nyantype would be a good magazine to pick up. It snowed for a bit the other day so I know a lot of people here are wishing for summer to come back.
