Dengeki’s “Visual Arts” publication of autumn 2012 has released – serving as the absolute least impressive issue of the studio centric magazine line to date as it lacks in all areas aside from, perhaps, bust size.
Starting first with the main reason why these magazines are ever worth purchasing, this season’s particular edition has a tapestry which, unfortunately, when compared to those included with earlier installments, is far inferior. A bishoujo is certainly fine too – although the previous two rounds of this special volume booklet would be equipped with tapestry imagery much more rewarding upon the eyes.
Now secondly, there simply is no else worth even recognizing beyond that – the pages of this magazine are littered with photographs leaked long ago, or even some which have been officially released, albeit forever ago.
And then onto the final savior, salvation remains a world away sadly – the manga chapters lining this issue are notably poor in illustration caliber on a few pages and the occasional panel, yet these side-stories are so dull, they’re not even worth the effort of examining to begin with.
The sole positive in this all is that the cute Natsume Rin will apparently be branding the face of Dengeki’s “Visual Arts” of winter 2012 – and seeing as she’s the single one on the cover, this may hopefully mean a special item themed after her will be paired alongside the seasonal lackluster magazine.
