Yes, you read the title right, and no, this is not an April Fool’s joke. Do I have something special for you guys, I have here volume 11 of Megami Magazine, which was released 10 years ago on April 1, 2001. Its been over a month since I started the History With Anime project, so I thought it was about time for another trip down memory lane. The thing I love about Megami is that it not only provides excellent artwork, it also acts as a record of the anime and games that were popular in the past.
As for why I decided to get this particular volume, you just have to look at the cover. Love Hina was the must-see anime for any teenage boy way back when. If you’re a guy and you went through your teenage years without seeing a single episode of Love Hina, then I feel sorry for you.
The magazine itself still has that Megami feel that the modern day volumes have, but there are some notable differences. First though, lets take a run through the posters. I’ve introduced the characters and anime/game for each poster because I know some of you probably won’t recognize any of them.
