TokiKake Screening and Megami Deluxe vol. 1

So first off, if anyone else (in the Philippines) doesn’t know it yet…

And I reiterate:

I’m hesitant to post the screening times, but I’m sure anyone with a degree in Google-fu can get them, which I guess makes the entire point moot. Because there probably won’t be another chance like this, I’m going to try and get to all three screenings. Seeing as it’s a free showing, in 35mm no less (which apparently is loads better than DVD quality), however, I’m sure I’d be lucky to get to watch even it even once.


And in other news, I got myself a copy of DMP’s Megami Deluxe – an American version of what “it [DMP] determines is the best of the magazine.” [Wikipedia] It’s completely unlike a Megami since it only concentrates on the posters and rather than just throwing in a random bunch of posters from currently airing anime, it gathers a whole lot of them, then categorizes them into themes (ie: swim wear, school uniforms, etc.).
Seeing as some posters are from some older shows like Mahoraba, it didn’t surprise me that there were some shows I’d never even heard of before, like UFO Ultramaiden Valkyrie However, most shows are still relatively new – I’d at least recognized most of the series included, such as AIR, Kamichu!, Galaxy Angel, Ichigo Marshmallow, Negima!, FMP! TSR, and Shuffle!
Was this a good book? Yes, it’s definitely a step closer to bringing awesome stuff like Megami to the English-speaking community. Was this a good buy? I’d say… kinda. The book itself set me back 1,100 Php (over 25 USD) and while it did come with a huge 15″ x 41″ poster (dakimakura style, mind you), it was of Mai and Arika from Mai Hime and Otome, and that’s not really my thing.
However, the second volume’s yet to be released, and it will come with – get ready for this – a similarly sized poster from Nanoha A’s. FUCK YEAH. I seriously have to get that, no matter what the cost. According to RightStuf, it comes out on July 22nd, so go preoder it or something. Anyway, the rest of the pictures after the jump.

    Fans who like the many series would be willing to part with their US$25 for those good quality colored posters and pictures. Ah, seems like this issue is not for me though, no Claymore. (:

    Hynavian, unfortunately not. This is from really old issues of Megami, so yeah.
    Marcus, if only they were scans, orz. I have a scanner, though it sucks and I have no space to place it near my computer, so it can’t be connected to it. Not that I would debind and scan stuff though, richer people do that. And if you are interested in getting it, they’re still available online.
    Diego, Comic Quest in Megamall. I need to ask them to get a copy of the Megami DX volume 2 now for awesome loli Nanoha and Fate. Because they better :V
