Here we have volume 147 (August 2012) of Megami Magazine. It might be 6 months late, but better late than never. The cover features mahou shoujo Nanoha and Fate from the second Nanoha movie, which was released in theatres last summer. I’m still waiting for it to come out on DVD/Blu-Ray so I can watch it. In case anyone has forgotten how my Megami posts work, anything over a certain ecchi threshold are not shown directly on the page, you’ll have to click on the links to view them. Generally swimsuits and any other clothing you can expect people to wear outside are fine. Provocative poses are maybes and if they need to cover themselves, then you have to click on the link.
The second-oldest Megami Magazine volume that I own is volume 18, published exactly 10 years ago on November 1, 2001. As with the oldest Megami Magazine I own, I bought this one simply for the cover, which features my two favourite characters from Denshin Mamotte Shugogatten: Shao and Kiryuu. I always like looking back on series that I have enjoyed and going through a Megami Magazine from 10 years ago is a good way of doing that. Note that I’ve censored any nudity, but ecchi (NSFW) images are still hidden in the links.
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.
