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.
February is going to end in less than 2 hours so I figured I’d get this post on the February 2011 issue of Megami Magazine up, also known as volume 129. With Madoka dominating the anime scene this season, it’s no surprise that she’s the cover girl of this issue. She’s even holding onto a heart-shaped box, which I guess was for Valentine’s Day. There’s actually quite a bit of ecchi in here, but as usual, ecchi posters will be linked rather than shown directly. Since I’m tired and sick today, this’ll be a short post.
It seems I forgot to write about Megami Magazine Vol. 128 last month, so this will be the first of 2 Megami posts this week. As with a large portion of Megami volumes past, Nanoha has once again invaded the cover of the magazine. The occasion this time is the announcement of Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha A’s The Movie 2nd. Since I enjoyed the first movie, and I think the A’s series is better than the original, I’m really looking forward to the second movie.
The posters in the volume has a mix of characters from both the previous 2010 fall season and the current 2011 winter season. I was quite happy with the selection. Ecchi (ages 15+) images are linked, click at your own discretion.
It looks like I’m behind on magazine posts again, so it’s time to catch up. Volume 14 of Nyantype Magazine is very Nanoha-centric as you can probably guess from the cover page. This is mainly because this volume came out around the time the Nanoha movie came out on BD/DVD. As with my previous magazine post, very ecchi images will be linked. By clicking on them, I hold no responsibility if your boss/coworker/friend/lover/parent peeks over your shoulder.
One of the only reasons I watched MM! (in fact, the only reason) was because I thought one of the characters, Mio Isurugi, was cute and unique. I liked her so much that she even made it to 3rd place on my list of top 10 girls of 2010. Your first impression of her from the first few minutes of the series is that she’s just going to be another petite, short-tempered tsundere, but Mio takes the “tsun” of “tsundere” to the extreme. Rather than lash out with verbal abuse and a few punches, Mio takes pleasure from beating and torturing the main character, Tarou, to near-death. Add to that the fact that Tarou is an extreme masochist and you have a comical relationship unfold.
After what has felt like ages, I can finally get back to making regular posts again. My computer is all fixed and I don’t have anything I need to complete until February (yay). Today I have here the 127th volume of Megami Magazine, also known as the December 2010 issue.
Normally you’d think that a bishoujo magazine released in December would have a lot of girls in sexy Santa outfits, but Megami has a different take on things. Since December is one of the coldest months of the year (if you live in the northern hemisphere), Megami was nice enough to include lots of images to help warm you up, including beach and swimsuit ones. As usual, ecchi images aren’t shown directly (in case someone peeks over your shoulder), but now I’ve included links to each one to make it easier to get to.
Misaka Mikoto (aka biribiri, railgun) from To Aru Majutsu no Index II and To Aru Kagaku no Railgun makes her first Nyantype cover appearance on volume 13. I’m a bit surprised that they didn’t go for a 4th Nanoha cover considering the Nanoha movie just came out on Blu-ray/DVD, but I guess having a third of your covers be from a single series would be too much.
The cover of Megami Magazine Vol. 126 has both Index and Misaka on the cover. At first I thought that Misaka might have been the mini-Misaka that accelerator is taking care of because of her red cheeks and overly happy look. A closer look reveals that she’s wearing shorts under her skirt though, indicating that she’s the railgun.
It’s been a while since my last Megami Magazine post, so today I present to you volume 25, the October issue.
I hope everyone in Canada enjoyed Thanksgiving today. I spent most of the day studying and I don’t think I can memorize any more so here I am writing a blog post. Somehow I’ve managed to keep up with the new series airing this season and I think I’ve seen the first episode of everything that isn’t a sequel. Now it’s time to decide which series to follow and which ones will get the axe.
Thoughts: I’ve heard a lot of good things about the Bakuman manga, but the first episode of the anime failed to impress me. The animation wasn’t great, and it was only mildly funny. I do realize that this is supposed to be one of those growing up or coming-of-age stories so it might take a while for the plot to really take off.
Status: Will watch a few more episodes.
