Today we’ll cover the 144th volume of Megami Magazine for May 2012. The cover is of Saki – episode of side A. I’m surprised they didn’t go with a prettier anime, but I’m sure Saki fans would enjoy this. Unlike the last volume, quality seems to have improved this time, though the ecchi level has remained high. So as usual, in order to keep this site over-the-shoulder-peeking friendly, ecchi images can only be viewed by clicking on the text links.
Today we have volume 143 (April 2012) of Megami Magazine, just before the end of the month. The cover this time around features Shinobu from Nisemonogatari eating one of those weird donuts that looks like it’s wrapped in something.
The ecchi level is high in this volume so some of you will probably want to pass on getting this one (or get your wallets out *wink*). As usual, any objectionable (ecchi) images are hidden in the links rather than shown directly on the page in order to protect those visiting from public places from embarrassment.
Since I abandoned the anime screenshots project a few years ago, I’ve received several comments from people wanting it back. After much deliberation (amongst me, myself, and I of course), I’ve decided to start it up again to see how it goes. This time instead of weekly posts, it will be seasonal, covering some of the more interesting screenshots of the past few months. For those new to the Anime Screenshots column, it’s basically a collection of screenshots that I took while watching anime that I felt were worthy of sharing, as you can see below.
Hello everyone, here is Megami Magazine volume 142 (March 2012), the last post I will be making on my blog…
until I write the GMAT of course. I am falling behind on my study schedule so I will be going into hermit mode for the next few weeks, but I will return by mid-April.
This volume once again features Idolmaster on the front cover, though the series is nowhere near as prominent as Nanoha. There were surprisingly fewer pin-up posters in this volume, which you can check out below. For newcomers, links to images are ecchi and may be assumed to be NSFW.
Volume 141 (February 2012) of Megami Magazine once again features Nanoha and Fate from Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha. The cast of Nanoha has been absent from the last few volumes, but with the second movie coming out this summer, we’ll probably be seeing a lot more of them soon. This volume contains a few goodies, but first lets take a look at the pin-up posters. Ones with more racy images are hidden in the links, so click at your own discretion.
Now that all of the new series this season have aired, it’s time to go over my thoughts on each one and decide what to watch. I have seen at least one episode of every series listed below, but most of them have gotten 2 or 3 episode views before I came to my decision. I have excluded sequels of series that I have not seen since I would not be able to follow what is going on.
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.
Soon after getting my new camera, I realized that it’s not the equipment that determines how good a photo is, it’s the skill of the photographer. For the past few months I’ve been (very slowly) leveling up my photography skills, and after a few tips from Aka of Tailgrab.org(y) I finally have something presentable. That explains in a nutshell why I haven’t posted a figure review in 4 months.
With the final season of Zero no Tsukaima set to air next season, I thought it fitting to review a figure of my favourite pink-haired tsundere. Before the re-release of this Louise figure by Alter was announced, I bought a pre-owned one from MFC, making this my fourth Louise figure. She was originally released in May of 2009 for a retail price of 6800 yen. The pose is based on an illustration of Louise that was used in a cardboard cut-out included in Megami Magazine’s Zero no Tsukaima artbook (I will also be reviewing this before the season starts).
I know I haven’t been posting much (or at all) recently, but like I said in previous posts, it was because I had a ton of deadlines to meet and exams to write. I finally finished everything on Friday and spent the weekend partying (meaning I played video games with friends and ate ice cream). Now that I’m all done celebrating though, I figured it was time to get back to blogging. So for my first real post in a long time, I present to you volume 118 of Megami Magazine.
Once again, Nanoha is featured on the cover of the magazine. I liked seeing her on the cover at first, but now it’s starting to get old. I’d prefer seeing some other anime on the cover now.
