Now that the new year is here, it’s time to present the January 2012 issue of Megami Magazine, or volume 140. There are a few winter and Christmas-themed posters in this one as you can probably guess from the snowflakes on the front cover, though not as many as you would think. As usual, text links to images are ecchi and/or NSFW, so click at your own discretion.
The cover for the December 2011 issue of Megami Magazine (volume 13) is one of the nicer looking ones with Sena and Yozora from Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai against a fall background. Considering the level of quality seen in some episodes of the anime, I’m glad that illustrations don’t suffer from the same problem.
For the most part, the posters in this volume were average and mainly contained series from this season with a few from the upcoming season. Any images not shown directly on this page, but are linked are ecchi and NSFW.
This comes a few weeks late, but here is this month’s issue of Megami Magazine, volume 138. The magazine seems to have shifted away from Nanoha and friends and is now regularly featuring the girls from Idolmaster on their covers and in their posters. Volume 138 has a good mix of just about everything, so if you’re looking for variety, you may want to consider getting a copy. You can check out all of the posters included in this volume below. Remember that linked images are ecchi (a.k.a. NSFW).
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.
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.
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.
