Taking a look within Dengeki’s Visual Arts’ issue of spring 2012, it’s quite a disappointment as it carries no significant news on Angel Beats – and the remainder, dedicated to Little Busters, shares nothing new.
Making for quite a weak magazine indeed, this publication simply retells information already leaked or revealed some time earlier. The book’s main feature is Little Busters! – yet there’s nothing to be excited over in respect to that front as one can see. A page within simply retells us the dreadful fact we found out a few days back – of all the skilled anime studios, none of them were selected. Rather, it was JC Staff who are responsible for Little Busters! – a studio which makes a spectacular series about as often as one will win the lottery.
Several still frames of the animation and relevant character designs are shown – yet none are particularly impressive save for the one of the fellow standing with an environment of lush green all around him. As for the character designs, they exhibit the young variants of a few of the more prominent cast – which is interesting, however the sight alone does nothing to inspire eagerness for this anime.
With details on Little Busters’ coming animation out of the way, the magazine merely turns to some typical staff interviews and miscellaneous information from various Key titles which one could likely find on the internet. There’s of course also the immensely depressing Angel Beats! “project” announcement page which tells of a soon to arrive Tachibana Kanade PVC figure – a page which went far greater hyped by Dengeki than was necessary.
Overlooking some more trivial pages, there’s a few short manga chapters from assorted series – the only noteworthy aspect of any of them being a panel in which Yui-nyan of Angel Beats! gets her flat chest fondled. However even this brings quite some dismay, as apparently, Yui-nyan wears a bra.
The final and greatest feature of this lacking booklet is one not even directly related to it – a tapestry included as an extra which features Little Busters’ adorable Russian loli character, Kudryavka, soaking wet and entirely undressed. This illustrative decor certainly appears far better in person than was anticipated – and it’s quite sizable, overall making for the single reason one would want to purchase this magazine.
