Hanasaku Iroha Review

October 03, 2011 By: Nopy Category: Anime

Going off to work as a waitress at a traditional Japanese inn in the countryside is every girl’s dream, right? Well, maybe if you were Japanese Cinderella. Hanasaku Iroha takes the basics of the Cinderella story (minus the prince and magic fairy) and tries to weave a story of understanding and friendship out of the dredges of despair and lonliness. I’m not going to describe the whole anime, so instead here’s the plot summary from MyAnimeList:

After her single mother decides to run off with a boyfriend to dodge debt collectors, the young and energetic Ohana is sent to live with her grandmother. However, her grandmother is the strict owner of a hot springs inn and requires her to work at the inn to pay for her living expenses. Although Ohana is unhappy about this situation at first, she decides to make the best of her situation and work hard. Ohana’s life is suddenly filled with fun, mischief, and drama!

Megami Magazine Vol. 137

September 30, 2011 By: Nopy Category: Megami Magazine

Today I bring to you Megami Magazine Volume 137 (October 2011). Since we’re in the transition period between the summer and fall anime seasons, this volume contains a lot of posters from recently finished and to-be-aired series. The cover for this volume features two characters from a new anime that just happened to be announced right in this magazine (which explained why I couldn’t find any extra info on it). More on that once I get to that section in the magazine, but for now, here’s a look at the pin-up posters. As usual, linked images are ecchi (NSFW).

Megami Magazine Vol. 136

September 11, 2011 By: Nopy Category: Megami Magazine

It’s time for another volume of Megami Magazine. Volume 136 (September 2011) has the most extras that I have seen in a while, and rightly so considering it costs 990 yen rather than the usual price of 780 yen. The front cover features Kurisu and Mayuri from the anime and visual novel Steins;Gate, both sporting cute maid uniforms and nekomimi. I’ve noticed my Megami posts getting longer and longer, so I’m going to try cutting back this time by just introducing the characters and anime in each poster, followed by my overall thoughts at the end. As with every Megami post, ecchi (NSFW) pictures are in the image links, so click at your own risk.

Megami Magazine Vol. 135

July 29, 2011 By: Nopy Category: Megami Magazine

Today I bring you volume 135 (August 2011) of Megami Magazine, 36 volumes and 3 years after my first post on volume 100. While the girls have changed, not much else about the magazine has. There are still tons of bikini’s, panty shots, and extras. Idolmaster fans will probably like the cover of this volume.

Below are the posters included in this volume. Ecchi images can be found in the links. I’ll make this poster shorter since I’ve had a long day.

Magami Magazine Vol. 134 cover featuring Erio from Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko

The 134th volume (July 2011) of Megami Magazine covers just about every anime in the spring 2011 season, great for anyone who enjoyed the season’s lineup. The cover features one of my favourite characters, Erio Touwa from Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko.

Below are the pin-up posters in this volume. Click on the text links to see the ecchi images.

Megami Magazine Vol. 133

June 29, 2011 By: Nopy Category: Megami Magazine

It looks like I remembered about the June 2011 volume of Megami Magazine just before the month ends. This volume came out in the midst of the Spring anime season, so if you’ve enjoyed the anime recently and want some posters, you might want to consider ordering. The cover features the Shana clone, Aria, from Hidan no Aria. I thought it was great how they used bullet holes to feature some other characters.

The posters you’ll find in this volume are shown below. As usual, ecchi content isn’t directly shown on this page, click the links if you want to see them.

Sping 2011 Anime Round-up

May 09, 2011 By: Nopy Category: Anime

It seems like ages since I’ve done a real post, but part of the reason was that after I had gotten all my IRL stuff sorted out, I had a huge backlog of anime and unread emails/articles. I’m happy to say that now that backlog has been diminished to something more manageable, I can get back to blogging again. I think I’ve seen the first episode or more of every series (minus sequels) airing this season, so here are my thoughts on all of them.

Megami Magazine Vol. 131

April 22, 2011 By: Nopy Category: Megami Magazine

It looks like Nanoha has some competition when it comes to appearances on Megami Magazine covers. This is the second time that Puella Magi Madoka Magica has been featured on the cover. The first time, in volume 129,  had Madoka in her puella magi outfit, volume 131 here has Homura in a black dress.

Posters follow below, ecchi images are linked.
