To Aru Majutsu no Index G’s Coverage

The October issue of Dengeki G’s Magazine is out, and we’re treated to a Mikoto cover! Courtesy of the fact To Aru Majutsu no Index comes back in October for a second season!!! This issue we get some peeks at the second season, and we also see some scenes from the To Aru Kagaku no Railgun OVA!

What peaked my interest was the announcement of the Shirai Kuroko figma! Unfortunately, you can only get it in the limited edition release of the To Aru Kagaku no Railgun. I was prepared to buy the To Aru Majutsu no Index game to get the Mikoto figma, but I believe the rationalization for that went along the lines of “It’s a fighting game, fighting games are universal! So it’s not really much of a waste to buy the limited edition! Plus Mikoto figma!!” My brain’s being a little more rational as it seems the Railgun game looks a lot more text-based. Plus, I really want Mikoto; don’t get it wrong, I’d like to get Kuroko too. I’m just more invested in Mikoto right now. So aside from all, I just want to say that I’m really looking forward to the second season of To Aru Majutsu no Index this week! I’ll be counting the days till Itsuwa’s television debut! Just a reminder, the To Aru Majutsu no Index game comes out January and the To Aru Kagaku no Railgun game comes out April-ish I believe. Hopefully I’ll be in  a good spot financially to buy both! On that note, I hope I learn enough Japanese (at least kanji) to appreciate the To Aru Kagaku no Railgun game. Oddly enough in terms of audio I know enough to get through your typical high school galge game-based anime. Think I watch like a lot of those; probably because of the To Heart franchise.

To Aru Majutsu no Index Fighting Game

In the tradition of Fate/Stay Night fighting game; To Aru Majutsu no Index is also getting a 3D fighting game. It’s great and all, but personally I’ve always been more of a 2D person. That’s not to say I completely hate 3d (I did systems alone just to play Dead or Alive 3 and 4) but I just think the game would be better as a 2D fighter. That aside, this little article comes from Dengeki G’s Magazine’s October issue. From the screenshots it looks like playable characters will consist of Kanzaki Kaori, Misaka clones, Accelerator, Stiyl Magnus, Tsuchimikado Motoharu, Index, Kamijou Touma, and Misaka Mikoto. Seems like it has a tag team system, but I really can’t say as my Kanji level is extremely elementary still. (*sigh* I really  need to find a good online Japanese teaching site). In any case, the major draws to me for this game can be summed up in two words: Misaka Mikoto! There’s the Mikoto bathroom poster you see in the screens there with her in her swimsuit, and better yet, the Misaka Mikoto figma! Sadly from what little I can gather, the figma is going to be bundled up with the special edition of the game much like how the Lily Saber figma was bundled up in the last fate game. The good news for me is that I finally have a job again so it’s not that big of a deal! Plus fighting games are universal so the amount of Japanese you know is irrelevant. You just gotta communicate with you fists!

Dengeki Gs April 2009 Issue

The extra for this month is a mini figurine of Feena.

 

 

One of the features of this month is the making of the figure

As you can see here the process starts with the creation of the prototype using molding clay and wire for support. Then each individual piece is molded, then colored and the the details on the face are done using decals made from the computer. Then mass production happens. On the last page you can see the figurines for this month in Dengeki Gs and Dengeki Hime (post for this coming up) featuring Feena Schoolgirl ver. and Cynthia respectively, and next month in Gs and Hime Estel and Beach Feena respectively. I’m pretty impressed at the process it takes to make one of these figures and the fact that it probably happens fast since they’re doing 2  for this month then another 2 next month. Wonder what the value of the prototype is? Well I know it’s a little fast, but based on the 1 person who actually voted I’ll be handling magazine posts in mini batches with trying to keep relevant articles together and putting everything else with the main magazine post. I’ll post the rest up the stuff in this issue in relevant batches.

Not bad, not bad, I for one am looking forward to the game. The reason the game’s featured on the cover probably has to do with it being ranked first this month as you can see on the image below

That’s all I got right now. I’m kinda stuck with whether I should scan the rest of the pages I planned to, or take a picture, or finding some other method of getting the images. The problem with scanning can be seen with the image above, the parts near the binding show up blurred. The problem with taking a picture with a camera is probably a slight decrease in picture quality. If anyone has a suggestion on getting better picture quality that doesn’t involve cutting out pages of the magazine I’ll try it out. (I’d take out the pages if I had a spare copy, but I don’t have that kind of money to buy an extra copy to scan)……..(unless you guys are willing to donate $15 a month for me to scan one) Well that’s just a suggestion, I can always raffle off the scan copy afterwards with its extras. In any case till I can figure a way out to properly get pictures, I’ll hold off on further images. Rest assured though, they will come out once a solution has been found!
