It feels like it’s been a year since I’ve actually written about Megami Magazine in the month that a particular volume is for. When I asked what you guys wanted to see more of on Nopy’s Blog, many of you said you liked the magazine posts so I’ve been churning them out recently. Megami Magazine volume 124 is the last magazine I have right now since it’s the September issue, but I’ll be getting October stuff sometime next week. The cover of this volume has Yoshika and Lynette from Strike Witches riding some brooms. It makes so much sense (witches ride brooms after all), but seems so wrong without those leg propeller things.
This volume has a lot of swimsuit posters, which I found kinda weird considering it’s the September volume, the month when summer starts to end.
The first poster is of Ryouko from Ookami-san. Considering her nickname is supposed to mean wolf, there is a surprising number of cats in her room. The poster itself it decent, but Ryouko’s left foot looks like it belongs to a gremlin or something with toes that long.
This Asobi ni Iku yo poster is rather simple, but nice. I can’t remember what this activity was called, but it looks fun.
I think this is the first time I’ve seen an Amagami SS poster of someone other than Haruka. I can’t tell if Kaoru is supposed to be dressed as a nurse or not here.
If you like bikinis, then you’ll definitely like the following posters:
This one is from Sekirei,
Mio’s usually very stylish, but I think Mugi wins in that category here. I like her white bikini and her braids, Mio just seems a bit clueless.
Chise’s face seems a bit off in this poster.
Here’s one for the Index/Railgun fans.
This is a funny poster of Shino from Seitokai Yakuindomo. I’ve never seen those breast pads in real life, but they show up in anime sometimes.
I was a bit disappointed with this Kowarekake no Orgol poster. The concrete wall seems too plain (ie: not enough cracks), and the buildings outside look really vague.
This volume comes with the BRS OVA on DVD.
There’s also a booklet with some info on huke’s BRS illustrations. You can see more pics of the BRS extras in Ari’s post.
The large poster included this time is of Kanade from Angel Beats looking very geeky.
On the back is the same image from the cover of the magazine.
There was also a Chaos card included in this volume. In case you’d forgotten, Chaos is short for “character operating system” and is a card battle game that you can play with other people.
For hidden images, read this post (numbers 04, 07, 12, 14, 16, 17).
Image 12 was featured in this volume’s Girl’s Avenue. It was illustrated by Mamoru Naruse (成瀬守) of a circle called The Flyers. They seem to illustrate mostly moe and eroge characters. Image 14 was kinda ecchi, but I liked all the vines and flowers.
This volume is really the summer volume of Megami with all those swimsuit posters, though in my opinion they should have released it earlier in the year. It’s a good volume to pick up if you like anime girls in bikinis or if you simply want a copy of the BRS DVD.
