Megami Magazine Vol. 161

July 02, 2014 By: Nopy Category: Megami Magazine

On to the next speed-post, we have Megami Magazine Volume 161, issued back in October 2013. Some of you may be asking, “but Nopy, where’s volume 159 and 160?” Well, due to a little mix-up and me moving to Toronto, I didn’t realize that I hadn’t gotten 159 and 160 until a few months later. By that point, both volumes were already sold out so there’s nothing I can do about it now.

Back to volume 161 though, the cover features the two lolis of the Monogatari series: Mayoi and Shinobu. It’s a refreshing change from the usual sexy covers that Megami Magazine usually employs, and it’s a treat for Monogatari fans. As with the previous Megami post, this will be shorter in order to give me time to catch up with my backlog. Posters will have the titles of the anime they’re from underneath, followed with a brief overview of all of them at the very end.

Nopy’s Top 10 Anime Girls of 2013

December 30, 2013 By: Nopy Category: Anime

Another year comes to a close and it is time again to list Nopy’s top 10 anime girls. This is the fourth year in a row that I’m making this post, so you guys should know the drill by now. Any girl in a series that aired this year and that I watched is eligible for my list. I try not to select girls that had a shot at the list in previous years. My criteria for selection is overall likability, meaning it could be anything from they look cool, have interesting personalities, make me laugh, or are just pure awesome. Here are my top 10 anime girls of 2013:

10. Ryuuko Matoi (Kill la Kill)

Ryuuko just barely made it onto the list with the help of the last few episodes of Kill la Kill. With only one transformation, she was starting to get boring, but now that we know she and senketsu can change into different forms, it makes her so much cooler (not to say she wasn’t already cool). Her guts and determination to avenge her father make the battles worth watching and who could ignore that outfit.

Summer 2013 Anime Wrap-up

Hishashiburi, minna!

I wasn’t able to get around to my Summer 2013 round-up post so it looks like now I’m doing a wrap-up post. For those wondering where I’ve been, doing an MBA is more work than I thought. I finished my finals for the first term on Friday and I have this weekend off before school begins again on Monday (yes, having a weekend now counts as “time off”). Its been a productive weekend with me being a shut-in by only going to 2 of the dozen or so networking/social events and spending the rest of my time playing Atelier Meruru and catching up on anime. These aren’t complete reviews, but as my professors all say, “you should be able to sum up everything into one sentence or a 30-second elevator pitch,” so these paragraphs will give you a good impression of how I saw each series.
