Hey everyone, this is like a bootleg version of the Quick Picks that BigHeart711 and I do for US manga and anime releases. Plus, this idea was inspired by FinalDasa's weekly poster roundup. Now this time, it's all about magazines from Japan. Some magazines are release a month earlier like Megami and Nyantype.

I'm not an expert since I cannot read Japanese. The only magazine projects I can do without learning Japanese is Megami and Nyantype because the issue numbers are easy enough to follow and keep track. Weekly Shonen Sunday and Shonen Jump are big and confusing.

Now then, let's go over these awesome magazine covers I found. I might not recognize a lot of the characters here. I don't watch a lot of anime or read a lot of manga.

  • Name: Dengeki Daoh
  • Publisher: ASCII Media Works
  • 電撃大王 2013年 11月号
  • Release Date: 2013/9/27
The character on the poster is Manaka Mukaido from Nagi no Asukara.
Same magazine as above, but this one was released on 10/26/2013. I don't know who is the poster girl. I'm guessing it's Kōko Kaga from Golden Time. Don't take my word for it.

I put the September version because I'm a big fan of Nagi no Asukara.
Megami #163

@takashichea: I think it would be great if you'd make a blog about those blogs of yours since it's starting to be mission impossible to find some of them and they contain great amount of useful information.

Yeah, that's a good idea.

The magazines I'm taking care of are

The main problems for me is the issue numbers, my inability to read Japanese, and finding good to hi res magazine covers. and I have Megami and Nyantype up to date. I have Earth Star Magazine up to date since it was a small catalog.

I would like to do Newtype, but I just don't know where to start adding the issues without having landmarks for me to work around.

I did this blog to highlight some of the magazines that we don't have in the database.
