This is my first Megami Magazine post since mid-May, so I’ve got a few volumes to catch up on. First, I’ll start with volume 120, which features Mio and Yui from K-ON on the cover. This volume came out in May, which was right around the end of the spring season so there are lots of posters from then in here. There was also a section with an interview of some voice actresses, but I couldn’t translate any of it. Anyways, here’s a look at what posters came with this volume:
Volume 119 of Megami Magazine features Misaka from To Aru Kagaku no Railgun on the cover, one of the more popular anime of last season. It’s actually a relief that they didn’t go with another Nanoha cover this time. The previous volume only included 16 pin-up posters, which was a bit short of the number Megami usually has, and this volume also only has 16. Hopefully the staff didn’t decide to cut back on the number of posters and we’ll start to see 20+ in future volumes.
Volume 5 of Nyantype Magazine came out a few months ago, and it looks like they’ve caught Nanoha fever as well judging from the cover. Hopefully they won’t go overboard with it like Megami does.
I know I haven’t been posting much (or at all) recently, but like I said in previous posts, it was because I had a ton of deadlines to meet and exams to write. I finally finished everything on Friday and spent the weekend partying (meaning I played video games with friends and ate ice cream). Now that I’m all done celebrating though, I figured it was time to get back to blogging. So for my first real post in a long time, I present to you volume 118 of Megami Magazine.
Once again, Nanoha is featured on the cover of the magazine. I liked seeing her on the cover at first, but now it’s starting to get old. I’d prefer seeing some other anime on the cover now.
Alrighty, for everyone that’ve been waiting patiently I’ve finally gotten around to another Megami Magazine post. This is Volume 117 of Megami Magazine, for February 2010, only 1 month later than usual (or 2 if you consider that Megami releases 1 month before the printed month). With all the hype over the Nanoha movie, it’s only natural that Nanoha would once again find her way onto the cover of Megami Magazine. By my count, this is the 10th time that Nanoha has been featured on the cover, more than any other character. She has appeared in volumes 68, 77, 82, 84, 88, 90, 91, 100, 112, and 117. When you do the math, that works out to be 8.5% of all the Megami covers. I think it’s pretty obvious that someone at Megami has a soft spot for Nanoha, especially when you consider that other characters like Haruhi have only made it on to the cover twice.
