Nyantype Magazine Vol. 32

July 25, 2012 By: Nopy Category: Nyantype Magazine

It seems that my issue of Megami Magazine for July might have been lost in the mail, but on the bright side, I have a copy of this month’s Nyantype Magazine. Its been a long time since my last Nyantype post so now’s a good chance to see if anything has changed. The July 2012 issue or volume 32 features Kuroyukihime from Accel World in her butterfly avatar form. The pin-up posters are shown below and as usual, any ecchi content is in the text links.

It seems that Nyantype continues to include a 3-page poster in their magazines. The first poster is once again of Kuroyukihime, but this time in her school uniform. Her right leg seems awkwardly disproportionate to the chair, but otherwise she looks pretty with the light streaming in from the windows behind her.

Fate got the reverse side of the poster in a pose typically found on dakimakura. I love seeing her without her hair tied up and the illustration itself has nice clean lines and good detail.

More of Fate is seen on the next poster but in her adult form. She looks fantastic in uniform with a freeze frame of her transformation in the background. I wish Bardiche was a bit more prominent though, it seems like an afterthought in this illustration.

Hyouka really didn’t impress me, but the animation looks nice, and this illustration really captures that. The only thing they really missed here was that water refracts light.

For some reason this one seems flat. Maybe it’s because of all the relatively straight lines or the lack of gradients. Otherwise it would’ve made a decent poster.

This poster was pretty funny. It appears that Nyaruko has angered an octopus after eating some octopus balls and hitting it on the head.

This is one of the better posters in this issue. The amount of detail in Strike Witches illustrations in both Nyantype and Megami is amazing.

I was rather disappointed with this Sankarea poster. While Sanka is supposed to be pale, she looks like one solid colour with little shading. The same goes for Mero.

A rather simple poster, but I’m sure Iori fans will like it.

Everything from the shading to colours and line art were done exceptionally well in this illustration of Gruier from Mouretsu Pirates.

I think a little too much emphasis was put on a certain body part in this Kore wa Zombie Desu ka poster.

The line art could use a bit of work, but otherwise this one looks good. Given what kind of anime Dakara Boku wa H ga Dekinai is, I was actually expecting this to be a bit more revealing.

This poster seems to be a mix of 2D and 3D graphics. It looks stunning to say the least.

Simple and clean, but still nice.

Amil and Rouna looks a bit chunky in this illustration. Other than that, I think it looks nice and I love the bread in the background.

As far as beach illustrations go, this one is above average with the shimmering water and the streams of light. The characters also look nicely drawn.

I wasn’t too fond about how dark this illustration was. While it does help to highlight Mikoto’s face (and drool), it does too much to hide everything else.

Your standard Queen’s Blade fanservice at work here.

One of the figures featured in the figure section of the magazine was of Menma from Ano Hana. The sculpt looks perfect and I’m tempted to order one.

One of the things that only started showing up in the magazine in the last few issues I reviewed was the mecha girl section. I’m glad to see that it’s still around because some of the designs look fantastic. This issue features Nyaruko equipped with some kind of heart-shaped equipment on her back.

The back cover contains an ad for Nazo no Kanojo X. Did anyone actually watch that show?

Included with the magazine was the 3rd edition of Nyantypes’s Nanoha illustration collection. As you can probably guess from the title, it contains all of the Nanoha illustrations featured in the magazine for the last year or so.

I would love to have B2 sized posters of these two lovely illustrations showing Fate and Nanoha in yukata. Their hair is also tied up in a matching style, which is a bonus.

The collection also has the other characters including Hayate and her gang.

My favourites were the StrikerS images which seemed much more colourful than the other illustrations and featured the girls in a variety of outfits.

The B2 sized poster included in this issue has Nanoha in a beautiful blue and lavender dress on the first side. The ribbons at the top and falling feathers really help to add to the image. I was really happy with this poster.

The reverse side has more Nanoha, but in an art style different from the anime. I’m actually not a fan of the style, but I have to admit that it’s a wonderful illustration with a very dynamic scene.

Comparing this volume to my previous Nyantype Magazines, there is definitely some improvement in illustration quality. Deformed and disproportionate characters aren’t immediately obvious, but they’re still there which means there’s room for improvement. This particular volume seemed to have a very heavy focus on Nanoha, probably in celebration of the 2nd movie coming out in theatres soon. My picks for the top three posters are the Mouretsu Pirates poster, Hyouka poster, and Strike Witches poster. The illustrations in the Nanoha collection were also nice and the large poster of Nanoha in her dress is definitely a keeper. For Nanoha fans, this is a must-get volume.

  1. Hi nopy! Which series is this Mikoto from and is it watchable – if you know? :P I dunno where Iori’s from too >_> I’m just always behind one season ^^ well, at least I finished Fate Zero and Kora wa zombie desu ka of the dead :D
    Hope you’re well!

    • Mikoto is from Nazo no Kanojo X, an anime about a guy with a drool fetish and a girl that drools a lot. I didn’t think it was worth watching.

      Iori is from Kokoro Connect, which I think is a great series. It’s about a club with 2 guys and 3 girls that end up randomly swapping bodies due to some kind of magic. It’s only up to episode 3 right now, but the drama is really starting to look good.

  2. Nyantype, a change from the routine I see.

    Several nice posters and illustrations on this issue. I found the Nyarko one amusing. That Nanoha and Fate in yukatas is really nice, I need to go track down a digital copy of those two.

  3. There’s a lot of posters/pictures from the Nanoha series! Among all the posters shown, my favorite is the Hyouka. I guess I like posters that shows interaction among the characters.

    • It seems Nanoha isn’t just big in Megami, but in Nyantype as well. The Hyouka one is nice, it’s very detailed and has a nice atmosphere around it.

  4. several nice posters this time, like Shining Hearts, Hyouka and Mouretsu Pirates.

    If you can get over the drool thing Nazo no Kanojo is actually an entertaining and unique romantic anime. I guess the drool makes it hard for some folks :p

  5. Oh so it features accel world this time.
    but I must say that they arent really appealing, maybe the Hyouka or Nanoha, I thought they would put at least a K-ON! given the release of the BD

  6. Don’t plan to buy the Menma figure, though I already pre-ordered the Saber one :D

    I haven’t watch the anime yet but the Strike Witches illustration does look pretty amazing. And Nanoha and Fate’s pics in yukata are nice to look at too.

    • I stopped watching Strike Witches after the first season, but I do like the artwork that comes from the series. It’s on a level higher than most anime artwork.

  7. Always enjoy seeing what’s in these magazines, and lately I’ve been really considering subscribing to one or two of them. The only thing is it’s quite hit or miss on the contents. I suppose it’s worthwhile for the few posters I would use, such as the Strike Witches one in this I quite like.
    Persocom recently posted..Kamikaze Girls

    • I know what you mean. A lot of the posters I would probably never put on my wall, but I keep up with my subscription for the ones that do stand out and I really want. It takes away the risk of missing a great poster.

  8. It’s been a while since I last saw Fate in her adult form, and even rare have I seen Nanoha & friends in their high school age!

    I’ve found that quite a few of my recent nyantype issues have been looked at by CBSA – the Oct issue has taken over a month and still not here (via SAL) whats the longest you’ve seen a shipment delayed after being flagged by customs?

    • If its been a month, the CBSA may have sent it back to the sender. They won’t delay shipment for more than the max time that the shipment is allowed to take (depends on what shipping method you chose).
