With yesterday’s release of the July ’08 issue of Megami Magazine things are officially heating up in the countdown to issue 100! The sticker price was raised to reflect the presence of additional extras, and unlike last issue there are no Nanoha filler posters to be found – just pure original poster goodness, and a lot of nice ones at that. Read on for a look at one of the best Megami issues to appear in recent months:

The extras included in this issue are a double-sided pencil board featuring original Kara no Kyoukai art from TYPE-MOON artist Takeuchi Takashi, Clare-chan Gekijou ~The Comics~ (a 4-panel manga compilation by Shiranagi Masa), and an extra large double-sided poster featuring Ikkitousen Great Guardians and Zero no Tsukaima 3.

Personal highlights from this issue for me include the Kanokon Chizuru poster (despite some wackiness around the eyes), the large Ikkitousen GG poster, scoops on Zero no Tsukaima 3 and the Sekirei anime, the Blassreiter poster (yes, that’s original Niθ art), and the Sekirei anime poster. It’s a good month to be a fan of ample endowments (though I can’t help wishing there was something from RD as well…).

This month’s Girl’s Avenue features the work of Hiiro Yuki, illustrator and artist of the Otogi Juushi Akazukin manga. Next month’s Megami will have a Zero no Tsukaima focus, and will continue gearing up in preparation for the 100th issue celebration coming at the end of July. If this issue is anything to go on it looks like they’ll be pulling out all the stops for the next couple of months, and I can’t wait to see what’s in store!
