Aoi Nishimata Illustrations – Vivid

August 29, 2011 By: Nopy Category: Artbooks

Many of you already know that I’m a big fan of Aoi Nishimata, so it should come as no surprise that when preorders for her Vivid artbook came up, my credit card was already out of my wallet. Aoi Nishimata is a female artist who has worked on characters for visual novels including Shuffle!, Ore-tachi ni Tsubasa wa Nai, Final Approach, Tick! Tack!, and Really? Really!

Released back in December 2010 by Kadokawa Shoten, Vivid is a collection of Aoi Nishimata’s illustrations stretching back to 2001. The book contains 144 pages, mostly of full colour illustrations, a bargain for 3000 yen.


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.


Megami Magazine Vol. 134

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.


Ore-tachi ni Tsubasa wa Nai Review

July 04, 2011 By: Nopy Category: Anime

“May peace prevail in the world.”

That is the motto used by the main characters of Ore-tachi ni Tsubasa wa Nai, Takashi, Hayato, and Shuusuke. Its meaning is clear, but its significance is kept shrouded in mystery.

The thing that first drew me to OreTsuba were the character designs, which were done by one of my favourite artists, Aoi Nishimata. A lot of Nishmata’s work is for eroge, and OreTsuba happens to be one of them, so before the anime even aired, I knew to expect a lot of fanservice. If you can’t handle dirty talk, panty shots, or accidental exposures, then I can tell you right now that you won’t like OreTsuba. Beneath all of that fanservice, however, there is a story about the struggle to restore  peace to a fragmented world.


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.


Megami Magazine Vol. 132

May 25, 2011 By: Nopy Category: Megami Magazine

The May 2011 issue of Megami Magazine (volume 132) has one of the nicest covers (I think) in a long time. If you don’t recognize this pink-haired girl with doggy ears, she’s Princess Millhoire F. Biscotti from the anime Dog Days. I think she’s absolutely adorable (and it helps that Yui Horie is her voice actress) so I think whoever chose the cover for volume 132 did a good job.

There are quite a number of posters covering the spring season this time as well as some from the previous season. You can see them all below. As usual, any ecchi material is not previewed on this page, you will need to click on the links 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.
