Megami Magazine Vol. 106

I had so much paper build up on my desk during the last couple of weeks that my copy of Megami Magazine volume 106 got lost in all of it. This volume features Nagi and Zange on the cover and includes part 2 of the book-in-book section for Kannagi. There were some nice posters this time, but I don’t know where half of them are from, I guess I’m really falling behind on my anime.

Mmm, melon soda sure seems tempting. Has anyone else noticed how suggestive this Akikan poster is, a pop can in a very enviable position and a banana gun?

The ever fashionable Ami shows off her adorable Minori and Taiga purse straps.

It’s like they’re ranking Kaori, Mikoto, and Index here from top to bottom. Poor Index is at the bottom, but she doesn’t seem to mind.

Is it just me, or is Kuro missing some vital clothing?

Nanami really likes those gero frog things.

I’ve never heard of this anime. Is this girl’s cat ears and tail actually ears and a tail, or is that just her hair shaped strangely? Also, what are those strange things trying to strip her?

Out of the pull-out posters in this volume, I liked the Toradora one best since Ami is my favourite character. I also liked the one with the semi-cat-girl even though I’ve never seen the anime she’s from. My third favourite would be the Akikan poster for obvious reasons 🙂

Fans of Akikan and Asu no Yoichi will be pleased to hear that the first dvds will be coming out on April 15, and March 25 respectively.

There was quite a bit of info on Kannagi, all in Japanese though.

I really liked the cover of the Kannagi book-in-book, really nice art.

Within the book-in-book were a lot of screenshots from the anime along with information on all the characters.

The back cover also had some nice artwork.

As you may or may not know, the 3rd season of Zero no Tsukaima was censored during the tv broadcasts to help increase sales of the dvds which aren’t censored. The last volume came out on January 23, and the box set will be coming out soon on March 6.

One of the things I like about Megami Magazine is that you find things that you wouldn’t normally find anywhere else, like this Kemeko DX fighting game for the DS. Now i just need to figure out how I’m going to get a hold of a copy of this game.

Two new dating sims are featured in the PC games section: Flyable Heart and Oretachi ni Tsubasa wa Nai – Under The Innocent Sky. The illustrations for the second one were done by Aoi Nishimata, the illustrator for the Shuffle! characters.

The back cover of the magazine features To Heart 2 and Utawarerumono.

This time, the large poster that comes with every copy of Megami Magazine features Nagisa from Clannad in her waitresss uniform.

The reverse side has Asuka and Rei from Evangelion.

There was also a bonus item this time, a double-sided Kannagi pencil board.

It was called a pencil board, but I prefer to think of it as a useless (though pretty) thin piece of plastic. This “pencil board” is too flimsy to actually use as a pencil board, and it doesn’t work too well as a mousepad either. I guess you can’t really expect any quality from a free item from a magazine.

I thought the quality of this volume was above average. There were some very nice pull-out posters and the extra Kannagi stuff was a treat (even though I don’t watch Kannagi). I also had a tough time deciding which side of the large poster to show on my wall. In the end I decided to go with the Evangelion side.

    Thanks for the review Nopy. Do you get Megami as a subscription?

    • Nopy Says:

      Yep, I save quite a bit on shipping having a subscription rather than buying the magazines individually. Not to mention that when I bought the subscription the Canadian dollar was worth a lot more so it cost me less.
