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.
It has been one hectic month for me so I haven’t been able to spend any time on the blog, but now that things have slowed down, it’s time to get through this Megami Magazine backlog again. Volume 152 (January 2013) was the last Megami Magazine to come out last year so it has a bit of a Christmas theme to it. The cover has Rikka from Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai sitting on a throne with a pet lion, pretty cool if you ask me. As usual, extremely ecchi content isn’t shown directly on the page, you’ll need to click on the links to see them.
Megami Magazine volume 151 (December 2012) features a lovely cover illustration of Goddess Madoka and “Prophet” Homura against a starry background. I have a soft spot for space shots and I love Madoka so I spent quite a bit of time just staring at the cover. I was expecting a Christmas theme for this volume as they usually do that, but there were no red santa hats this time. As usual, any posters that I think exceed a certain ecchi threshold can be viewed by clicking on the links.
It’s hard to believe that I have reviewed over 50 volumes of Megami Magazine, but here we are at volume 150 (November 2012). The cover page features Nanoha and Milhi, which actually works well since both of them have the same character design style. The lettering on the title is gold this time to celebrate the 150th volume. There are a few nice extras in this volume, but lets go through the pin-up posters first. Any posters exceeding a certain ecchi threshold can be viewed by clicking on the links.
Continuing on with my catch-up of Megami posts, here is Megami Magazine Vol. 149 (October 2012). An interesting fact I failed to mention in my last post is that I now posess over 1/3 of the Megami Magazines released so far. to put that into perspective, that’s over 4 years of subscriptions and tons of posters. After all of this time I’ve come to accept the fact that the majority of you visit my site from home, therefore I have decided to be a bit more relaxed with what’s censored. There will be more ecchi material shown directly on the page, but the questionable stuff will still be hidden in the links.
Feeling a little ronery tonight as you watch all the couples out there celebrate Valentine’s Day? Well maybe some bishoujo pics will cheer you up. For this week’s Megami Magazine post we have volume 148 (September 2012). This volume features characters from the summer and fall 2012 anime line-up so a few of them will still be familiar. As always, you will need to click on the text links to see posters over a certain ecchi threshold.
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.
Recently, there has been a lot of talk surrounding the transformation scene of Rebecca (Becky) from Dog Days. Two main opinions have developed from all of that talk. The first is that the scene is too sexually suggestive. The second is that transformation scenes like Rebecca’s are commonplace in magical girl anime and nothing to be concerned about. Both sides seem to suggest that magical girl transformations are starting to encroach on ero-anime territory. Considering magical girl anime were originally made for young girls, have transformation scenes gone too far in trying to attract male viewers?
