Tsukiko Tsutsukakushi from Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko is featured prominently on the cover of Megami Magazine volume 157 (June 2013). While Tsukiko looks cute in the anime, I think she looks cuter in Kantoku’s original illustrations of her, as shown here. There also happens to be a nendoroid petit in the same pose as on the cover. In order to get this nendoroid you will need to order a copy of Megami Magazine Goods+ August 2013. For those not familiar with the Goods+ line, it’s separate from the main Megami Magazine and rather than focusing on posters, it includes random goodies like figures. Keep in mind though that a Goods+ volume costs twice as much as a regular Megami Magazine. Those looking for other Henneko goodies might want to check out the goodies section after the posters below. As always, any super ecchi content is censored by the text links.
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.
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 cover of Megami Magazine Vol. 146 (July 2012) features one of the more popular girls of the year, Kuroyukihime from Accel World. All of the series featured in this volume actually ended already so it’s a nice little flashback to what was airing during the summer.
As usual, anything over a certain ecchi level is contained in the text links.
It seems that my issue of Megami Magazine for July might have been lost in the mail, but on the bright side, I have a copy of this month’s Nyantype Magazine. Its been a long time since my last Nyantype post so now’s a good chance to see if anything has changed. The July 2012 issue or volume 32 features Kuroyukihime from Accel World in her butterfly avatar form. The pin-up posters are shown below and as usual, any ecchi content is in the text links.
With the second Nanoha movie soon to hit Japanese theatres this summer, the series has once again taken over Megami Magazine. The cover features Nanoha and Fate in their A’s movie outfits. Of course, they also took up a number of pages inside the magazine, but I won’t be covering those. If you happen to be in Japan this summer, you can check out the movie starting on July 14.
Moving on, the pin-up posters in this volume were pretty good, as you can see below. Note that anything ecchi can only be viewed by clicking on the text links.
Now that all of the new anime for the spring season have aired, it’s time for my seasonal round-up of the best and worst. To those of you new to my seasonal posts, I preview every new anime (excluding some sequels and spin-offs) and share my thoughts on them. I also indicate which series I thought were worth continuing and which weren’t. At the end I pick three anime – the best of the season, the worst of the season, and the most under-rated. Naturally, my opinions are all heavily biased.
I would’ve watched this series for Kuroyukihime alone. She’s pretty and looks cool in her black dress and butterfly wings. The world that the anime is set in has me interested too, who wouldn’t want to be able to connect to the internet using their brain? The story follows a typical shounen plot, but that’s OK.
