The 156th volume (May 2013) of Megami Magazine has a nice mix of posters from the winter and spring anime seasons. The front cover features the main girls from Girls and Panzer in their beach attire. Girls and Panzer seems to be the featured series in this volume with a related freebie and being placed on the large poster. More on that can be seen at the end of this post. To start things off, below you will find the pin-up posters included in this volume. As usual, any super ecchi ones are censored and can be viewed by clicking on the links.
Megami Magazine volume 155 (April 2013) came right at the end of the winter 2013 season so there are a number of posters for completed series, but there are a few for series that are still airing. The cover features Akane from Vividred Operation in her transformed state. Her smile and pose really help to showcase her cheerful side and brighten the magazine’s cover. Before getting into the posters, just remember that any super ecchi content isn’t shown directly on this page, you’ll have to click on the links to view them.
Today we have Megami Magazine Volume 154 (March 2013). The front cover features Miho from the series Girls and Panzer on a camouflage background. I actually quite like the cover this time, it’s bright, cheerful, and of a high quality. There’s a good selection of posters this time, which you can see below.
Sena Kashiwazaki is one of the main characters from Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai. She’s smart, athletic, pretty, popular, and has no friends, which prompts her into joining the neighbours club. Kotobukiya released this 1/8 scale figure of her in August 2012 for a price of 6800 yen. There are a number of figures out there of Sena, but what made me decide to get this one was the butterfly that rests on her knee.
Volume 153 (February 2013) of Megami Magazine features To Love-ru on the cover. To be honest, I’ve never seen To Love-Ru and I thought the gray tones in the cover made it look dull so I didn’t really like it. Although this is the February edition of Megami, it came out in January, meaning that this one comes with the annual freebie calendar. First though, lets take a look at the posters included in this volume. Note that very ecchi content is not shown directly on this page, you will need to click on the links to see them.
With a new year comes a new season and a new batch of anime. After viewing all of the new anime this season, I have compiled all of my initial thoughts into this post. As with all of my round-ups, I take into consideration every new series and continuations of series that I have seen. Sequels of anime that I haven’t seen are excluded because I would just be completely lost.
Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai (a.k.a. ‘Haganai’ or ‘I Don’t Have Many Friends’) is a short 12-episode school harem comedy anime series produced by AIC Build and that aired in the fall of 2011. A lot of people seem to brush off school harem anime as rubbish, and considering the premise of some of them, I’m not surprised. The description of the series on MAL makes it sound more interesting than your average school harem comedy:
Hasegawa Kodaka has transferred schools, and he’s having a hard time making friends. It doesn’t help that his blond hair tends to make people think he’s a delinquent. One day, he runs into his bad-tempered solitary classmate Yozora while she’s talking animatedly to her imaginary friend Tomo. Realizing that neither of them have any actual friends, they decide that the best way to alter this situation is to form a club and start recruiting.
That is how “Rinjinbu”, The Neighbours’ Club, was formed, a club specifically designed for people who don’t have very many friends. As other lonely classmates slowly join their little club, they’ll try to learn how to build friendships through cooking together, playing games, and other group activities. But will this group of relationship-challenged misfits really be able to get along?
Volume 141 (February 2012) of Megami Magazine once again features Nanoha and Fate from Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha. The cast of Nanoha has been absent from the last few volumes, but with the second movie coming out this summer, we’ll probably be seeing a lot more of them soon. This volume contains a few goodies, but first lets take a look at the pin-up posters. Ones with more racy images are hidden in the links, so click at your own discretion.
Now that the new year is here, it’s time to present the January 2012 issue of Megami Magazine, or volume 140. There are a few winter and Christmas-themed posters in this one as you can probably guess from the snowflakes on the front cover, though not as many as you would think. As usual, text links to images are ecchi and/or NSFW, so click at your own discretion.
The cover for the December 2011 issue of Megami Magazine (volume 13) is one of the nicer looking ones with Sena and Yozora from Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai against a fall background. Considering the level of quality seen in some episodes of the anime, I’m glad that illustrations don’t suffer from the same problem.
For the most part, the posters in this volume were average and mainly contained series from this season with a few from the upcoming season. Any images not shown directly on this page, but are linked are ecchi and NSFW.
