The cover of the August 2010 volume (124) of Megami Magazine is one of the sweetest I’ve seen in a while. Those of you who watched Angel Beats will surely remember the graduation episode; the cover of this volume features Yuri and Kanade at the ceremony together as best friends. It’s nice to see former enemies make up and clear up their misunderstandings. This volume of Megami has some impressive posters that you can see below:
I loved everything about this first poster, from the spectacular night-time background to the yukatas, and the way the moonlight shines on the characters.
Here’s Musubi in three different outfits. I like the hat she has in the middle.
This Ookami poster was interesting. The girls are dressed in some fancy clothes and dancing on stage. The outfits actually remind me of the AKB48 uniforms:
I’m kinda lost as to what the K-ON girls are doing here, but it looks cute.
I was considering whether to hide this poster or not, but since nothing’s showing and they’re not in suggestive poses, I figured no one would have any problems with it. That bed must be huge to be able to fit 4 people on it. The pink-haired girl looks a bit awkward with her head tilted at that angle and her right arm missing.
Haruka from Amagami SS appears here, but also in Nyantype. I haven’t seen any posters of the other girls so is she the most popular girl from the series?
I really liked this BRS poster, but then again, most BRS posters are good. The art style is very unique to the series. I think it would’ve looked a bit better if the chains were tighter and not just hanging off BRS.
This is a nice action shot, the expression on each of the girls faces fits exactly with their character.
Once again, here’s the image from the cover of the magazine but without all the text around it. I was impressed with how detailed the flowers are, and Yuri and Kanade look so cute together. The only bad thing about this poster is that the background’s so ugly.
Waterslides are fun.
This poster is part of the Girl’s Avenue section. It was illustrated by the artist Osamu Otani (尾谷おさむ). From what I’ve seen, he likes to use a lot of textures, making colours fade into each other rather than be separated by a clear line.
There wasn’t anything too special about this Kissxsis poster. I do like the dress that Ako is wearing though, she seems to be the more feminine one of the two.
There were several pages in this volume showcasing some collectable K-ON cards that are now available. I’m sure hardcore K-ON fans would want these.
This little extra was stuck into the front of the magazine. It’s a dust jacket for the first volume of Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha Movie 1st The Comics (that’s one long title). You just cut it out and put it around your manga. Unfortunately, I don’t have any Nanoha manga so I’ll be leaving this inside the magazine.
Those of you are are collecting those K-ON cards I mentioned earlier may want to pick up this volume of Megami because it contains one of the cards needed to complete the collection.
The details from the maid outfits to the restaurant set-up were well-done in this large poster. I wonder how Francesca managed to get that high up in the air though. You’d have to be running very fast to end up like that.
The back of the poster has Fate from the Nanoha series in a cute beach outfit. It looks like one of those images you’d find on bedsheets rather than a poster.
For hidden images, read this post (numbers 05, 11, 16, 17, 18, 19).
I was really impressed with 16, it was so detailed and it has that fantasy world feel about it.
My favourite posters in this volume were the first one with the Working!! girls, the one of Yuri and Kanade, and image 16. They all had really nice details and just looked great in my eyes.
