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.
While Nyantype Magazine started out with rather poor quality pin-up posters, it seems that they’re finally starting to get the hang of it with some pretty decent ones in volume 12. The cover features Yoshika and Mio from Strike Witches.
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.
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.
It’s been a while since I covered a volume of Megami Magazine and I had some time today, so I figured why not take a look at volume 122, the July 2010 edition (I’m only 2 months late). The cover features three popular characters from K-ON: Yui, Yui, and you guessed it, Yui. The only real difference between the three Yui’s besides the clothes is her hairstyle. It looks like she had her hair tied up as a baby, twintails as an elementary schooler, and her regular hairstyle as a high schooler. I guess the amount of blush gets lower and the length of her eyebrows increases with age too.
