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.
One of the more comedic anime to air during the Spring 2012 season was Kore wa Zombie Desu ka? of the Dead, the sequel to Kore wa Zombie Desu ka? Produced by Studio DEEN and lasting only 10 episodes, this anime continues where the first season left off and continues to add more characters and more craziness.
Ayumu Aikawa, a normal teenage boy turned cross-dressing zombie-masou shoujo, finds himself caught up in battle after battle as old enemies return and new ones take to the stage. Thankfully, his harem of Eucliwood Hellscythe (the necromancer that saved him and turned him into a zombie), Haruna (a genius masou shoujo), and Seraphim (a vampire ninja) are still living with him. His “outer harem” of Yuki ‘Tomonori’ Yoshida (a vampire ninja), and Sarasvati (a vampire ninja idol) also make frequent appearances.
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.
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.
Volume 15 of Nyantype came out a while ago, but I haven’t had time to get around to it until now. The cover features the adorable Nymph from Sora no Otoshimono. The posters this time around cover characters from series from both last season and the current season. As always, ecchi images are linked and not directly displayed.
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.
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.
