Megami Magazine Vol. 130

March 24, 2011 By: Nopy Category: Megami Magazine

I was in for a little surprise when I opened up the March 2011 issue of Megami Magazine, also known as volume 130. Unlike all of the other volumes that just come with a pretty anime girl (or girls) on a dull cover, this one has SPARKLES! In this volume, Megami decided to embed some tons of bright, multi-coloured, sparkly stars in the cover. You can only see some of them in the picture because of the angle, but they fill the whole page. I think it’s rather fitting considering they featured the girls from Idolmaster on the cover this time.

Enough about the cover though, lets see what kind of posters they have this time around (ecchi images linked):

The Winter 2011 Chopping Board

March 14, 2011 By: Nopy Category: Anime

I don’t usually do this, but this season I’ve decided to drop two series from my watch list halfway through. At the start of the season I was following 10 series (9 if you discount series with 2 minute episodes): Dragon Crisis, Gosick, Haiyoru Nyaruani, Kimi ni Todoke 2, Kore wa Zombie Desu Ka, Level E, Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Star Driver, To Aru Majutsu no Index II, Yumekui Merry. My usual rate of anime consumption is somewhere between 4 and 7 series at a time so this season’s plate of anime was a lot for me. I managed to keep up with all of them at first, but over the past couple of months I’ve decided to drop Dragon Crisis and Level E from my watch list.

Megami Magazine Vol. 129

February 28, 2011 By: Nopy Category: Megami Magazine

February is going to end in less than 2 hours so I figured I’d get this post on the February 2011 issue of Megami Magazine up, also known as volume 129. With Madoka dominating the anime scene this season, it’s no surprise that she’s the cover girl of this issue. She’s even holding onto a heart-shaped box, which I guess was for Valentine’s Day. There’s actually quite a bit of ecchi in here, but as usual, ecchi posters will be linked rather than shown directly. Since I’m tired and sick today, this’ll be a short post.

Winter 2011 Anime Round-up

January 19, 2011 By: Nopy Category: Anime

It’s been two weeks into the new anime season, and that means it’s time to head to the chopping board. I’m fairly certain that I’ve seen all of the major new anime airing this season and have now decided on which ones to keep watching and which ones to drop. Here are my thoughts based on the first or first two episodes of each series.

Beelzebub

A naked baby that electrocutes everyone around him when he cries, and is raised by a high school delinquent sounds like a wild and crazy idea that would make a great anime. Unfortunately, Beelzebub just didn’t have what it takes to impress me. By the end of the first episode it seemed like the anime was trying to follow something along the lines of teen parenthood, but I just couldn’t take it seriously.
