Megami Magazine Vol. 135

July 29, 2011 By: Nopy Category: Megami Magazine

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.

Nice sheep.

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.

  1. Oh, goodness, where can I get my hands on that Madoka fanbook?!

  2. Hm… Yea the first HanaIro poster looks a bit off. I still like it though, but because it’s HanaIro.

    Love the Yune one.

    Also, basketball loli one is kind of cute, but more creepy than anything else. Haha.

  3. Key-Fan says:

    Only the A-Channel Poster appeals to me, so I’ll skip this volume :/

  4. The chibi Boku Ga Tomodachi art is nendoroid promo art :D!

  5. I see idomaster is dominating the news.
    i have yet to watch it, but it looks like the k-on character design to me. not that its bad.

    the posters are alight, nothing really captured my eyes.

    5
  6. I like the pink Steins;Gate poster very much.
    Those outfits are nice I want to see cosplay of them!
    And I wouldn’t mind if the Steins;Gate girls suddenly appeared in Idolmaster either.

  7. I really like the Madoka art it looks so gorgeous. Again, I liked HanaIro’s candid shot and I kind of wish too that Tsuruko has her own section. As for Yune’s shot, I don’t think they gave her the much justice. She’s cuter than that.

  8. This is such an exceptional issue, usually I only like a few posters but this time I like quite a bit I will end up tracking down most of these posters.

  9. @bobbierob:
    As far as I know, it’s only available in this volume of Megami Magazine.

    @Yi:
    It is really creepy, especially when you consider how old they are.

    @Key-Fan:
    That’s too bad :/

    @David:
    Now that you mention it, I think I remember seeing a prototype nendoroid of the dark-haired girl.

    @Fabrice:
    With a dozen idols all in one place, there’s no reason why it wouldn’t be popular. I’m not a big fan of the K-ON style (except when it comes to Azunyan), so Idolmaster isn’t really my thing.

    @Kuuki:
    Maybe Mayuri will get them all to dress up like that in one of the episodes.

    @Snippett:
    It would be nice if Tsuruko got her own poster in the next volume, then I’d have all three girls from the series. I haven’t seen Croisee past the first episode, but I would imagine that there are some more artistic outfits that Yune could’ve been wearing.

    @Miette-chan:
    Good luck, I hope you can find the ones you want.

  10. I like the Idolmaster poster, I think its a funny show about the downsides of the Idol industry :D

    The Ro-Kyu-Bu! poster is just too much, just too creepy X< I watch this show, but I try to overlook the inappropriate parts of it ^^

    The denpa poster could have been done a bit better, Meme is too small compared to Erio and overall it looks so crowded there.

    The Madoka fanbook seems to be a very nice extra in this megami volume

  11. @Fabienne:
    I dropped Ro-Kyu-Bu after seeing what it was about. I was so excited about it initially because the designs were done by Tinkle, but now I’m disappointed.

    Meme really does look small compared to the other girls, it’s a shame they didn’t put that image on a larger poster.

  12. Is it just me, or there aren’t as many ecchi pictures in this volume as I would have expected from a Megami magazine? Also there’s no mention of Nanoha in this volume (or maybe you haven’t shown it this time round?) :o

    The Madoka fanbook is a nice addition. There are quite a few pretty pictures there, and I like the one with Sayaka and Kyouko in a sea of many Kyubehs lol.

    12
  13. The Steins;Gate ones are my favorite this time around, especially liking the Idolmaster parody one. Not too much otherwise that appeals to me this time around. That Madoka fan book looks like a great extra though.

    13
  14. @Q:
    I actually think there’s a normal amount of ecchi images in this one, but it varies a lot from volume to volume. You’re the first commenter to notice the lack of Nanoha. I was actually surprised as well that there wasn’t a Nanoha poster or extra anywhere. This is the first Nanoha-free Megami in a long time.

    @Persocom:
    The Steins;Gate one is rather amusing, especially with Idolmaster on the back. The Madoka fanbook is nice, but I wish there were just a few more pages to it.

  15. shit shit shit i feel like killing myself for missing this volume. i think its probably one of the best volumes i’ve seen.
