Today I bring you volume 135 (August 2011) of Megami Magazine, 36 volumes and 3 years after my first post on volume 100. While the girls have changed, not much else about the magazine has. There are still tons of bikini’s, panty shots, and extras. Idolmaster fans will probably like the cover of this volume.
Below are the posters included in this volume. Ecchi images can be found in the links. I’ll make this poster shorter since I’ve had a long day.
Most of Megami’s Hanasaku Iroha posters have been of good quality, but this one seemed a bit off. Maybe it’s the girls’ super thin legs or Minchi’s broken wrist?
I was never really interested in Infinite Stratos, but this was a nice poster.
I am still at a loss as to why Erio is the only one that sparkles, it looks a bit out of place when she’s with the other girls.
This is one of my favourites from this volume. It has just the right amount of fanservice and the detail and quality are good.
Steins;Gate posters in Megami seem to be rather dark.
Leo’s waist seems to be a bit misplaced, but otherwise, this Dog Days poster was excellent.
It’s odd to see the Type-Moon girls together in their swimwear like this.
It’s not often you see basketball lolis with cameltoes.
If you recall, this poster of Anaru from Ano Hana is in the same format as the one of Menma in the previous volume. Maybe fans of Tsuruko have something to look forward to next month.
I absolutely LOVE the artwork in this poster. Forget that the black haired girl’s feet don’t look quite like they’re on the coffee table, the shading in the uniforms and hair is perfect, and the character designs are cute. If you guys don’t recognize this anime, that’s because it hasn’t aired yet, which is odd for something in Megami. The title of the anime is Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai and it is coming this fall.
I’m happy to see another Hoshizora e Kakaru Hashi poster, but again, there’s no Ibuki and Madoka’s bust seems to have shrunk.
This is average as far as Megami goes.
This poster made me laugh, mahou shoujo Rika and Satoko, and a little fairy Hanyuu.
The image for this poster comes from this volume’s Girls’s Avenue artist, Haruyuki Morisawa (森沢晴行, http://pixiv.cc/h-morio/).
I’ve never seen the clarinet as a sexy instrument (probably because I used to play it), but I guess it works. For anyone wondering, yes, reeds are tasty.
Once again, I am very disappointed in the Soft Tennis poster that Megami has included. While it doesn’t look too bad in my picture, the actual poster is very yellow, almost the same colour as urine.
The details in the cherry blossoms is amazing.
Is Yune a replacement for Victorique’s cuteness? Not quite, but she’s pretty close.
You can always count on Seikon no Qwaser to bring you ecchi content.
You can now add Manyuu Hikenchou to that list as well.
I’m happy that this OreTsuba poster has Asuka in it, but I wish it was a bit more colourful.
Of the figures covered in the magazine, the only one I have on preorder is the Madoka nendoroid. The Elsie figure looks nice, but I decided to pass on her.
The anime section lists Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai as an upcoming anime, but they only have the chibi characters here, so I’m assuming the anime styled characters might be different from what was in the poster above.
The back of this volume looks, oddly, more like a front cover than the actual front cover.
One of the extras included with this volume was this Madoka Special Fan Book with illustrations from various artists.
These two are my favourite.
The book is a nice thing to have, especially when you don’t have the time to browse through sites like Pixiv.
This time the large poster inserted had the front and back covers on it. I used to think that it was common for Megami’s large poster to have the same images as the covers, but this is actually doesn’t happen very often. The Steins;Gate side is probably the most pink the series will ever get.
Overall, I thought this was a very good volume. Except for the Soft Tennis poster and a few awkward limbs, there wasn’t much to complain about. The details in shading and even the line art was good in posters like the ones for Baka Test, Dog Days, Boku wa Tomodachi, and A Channel. This is definitely one volume worth the 840 yen.
