I wasn’t able to pick up last month’s issue of Megami soon enough to do a timely review, but we return this month with a look at the latest the bishoujo anime pinup magazine has to offer. As was the case two months ago it seems Megami has once again outshone the competition from Comp Heroines with another great issue! Check it out for particularly delectable offerings from Bamboo Blade, Kodomo no Jikan, Dragonaut, and more.

Megami proves once again in this issue that they have the industry contacts and production infrastructure necessary to produce what is unquestionably the highest quality magazine of its type on the market. Particularly notable are a Lucky Star version of the bunny girl Haruhi illustration that inspired FREEing’s Haruhi figure line; really nice bedtime versions of Tama-chan and Kokonoe Rin; the usual impeccably illustrated POP story; and my personal favorite (of course) the Uno Makoto-illustrated offering from Dragonaut.

Those are just the tip of the iceberg of an issue that is all around quite solid, with almost all A and B-rank posters. The primary extra is a Shana pencilboard featuring the cover illustration, which I don’t particularly mind because it frees up poster space; A poster is wasted on some sort of StrikerS thing but there’s way less Nanoha in this issue than last issue so I can’t complain too much on that front. The Girl’s Avenue featured artist this month is Fujima Takuya.

Apologies for the low light conditions and the glare, I was shooting in the one room in my apartment with a space heater this evening and the lighting isn’t exactly ideal… Those looking to score a copy of the magazine can support HD by ordering at J-List (reserve subscription, individual issues) or Amazon.co.jp.

I wonder if this means we’re going to get a line of giant Lucky Star bunny girl figures in the near future. :3
