While volume 10 had Fate on the cover of the magazine, volume 11 which came out at the end of August has Nanoha on the cover. You’d think that Nanoha would be first, but I guess they switched it around since Fate seems to be more popular. Like Fate, Nanoha doesn’t seem to have that innocent look anymore, though she doesn’t look quite as angry.
Nyantype Magazine Volume 10 was released at the end of July. They have Fate on the cover of the magazine, but she looks a lot meaner than I remember. I don’t know much about the Nanoha Force series, but from the looks of illustrations I’ve seen, the characters aren’t as cheerful as they used to be. This volume costs 880 yen which is 100 yen more than a regular volume, but I’ll talk more about that later.
Volume 9 of Nyantype was released at the end of June and features Mio in her black bikini on the cover. Since this volume comes in the middle of summer, it’s full of swimsuit and summer-related posters as you can see below.
Nyantype Magazine vol. 8 was released at the end of May. I picked up this particular copy while I was in Japan in June. It was nice to actually only pay the price listed on the magazine for once. Dishing out 780 yen for Nyantype makes it seem so much more worth it when you normally pay $20, which includes currency conversion and shipping costs. The front cover features Nozomi from the anime Mayoi Neko Overrun. There’s also a little window in the cover offering a sneak peak into something special that they included, but more on that later.
Moving on with my magazine posts, here’s the seventh volume of Nyantype Magazine. This one was released at the end of April this year, just a month after volume 6. Nyantype originally went with bi-monthly releases, but now they’ve switched over to monthly releases like Megami Magazine. The cover features Ako and Riko from Kissxsis sharing a popsicle. I’m starting to think someone over at the Nyantype offices really likes the Kissxsis series. Now on to the posters:
