May 2021 Posters

Too many stragglers — even if the girls are sexy and cute — can be too much of a good thing…

A new anime season with new shows has led to a nice uptick in sexy anime posters this month.  But most of them still lean towards cute (aka the usual tease and moe).

What’s up with the stragglers (aka posters not in a pool)?  Turns out that several of the smaller magazines for anime posters like Animedia, Dengeki G’s, Newtype and MC☆Axis used to get pools on a regular basis but not lately.  And this has been going on for a while.  Yet somehow, they are still in business.  But with a lot less anime posters.  And on top of that, there are even a few small magazines that I’ve never heard of.

And this month, there was a crazy amount of straggler posts. Dozens and dozens.  Too many for a single blog post, so starting this month, the straggler posters are also bookend-ed just like the Megami posters.  Might miss a few this way but it can’t be helped.

Anyway, some of the straggler posters are rather fetching so I will try to look for straggler posters worth including when putting together the monthly posters post.

Unfortunately, does not have tags for magazines, so I included links at the bottom for the straggler anime posters that should catch most all of the recent posters for each anime.

Starting with 2019, we are treating Megami as the benchmark for anime posters and including all of their posters in our monthly posters blog posts.  And any other magazine’s posters that get a pool in between the Megami pools will be considered as well.  But only selected posters or VHR (Very High Resolution) scans.  It really needs to look like something that might actually be found on an anime fan’s wall or it’s not really a poster.  So no walls of text or walls of images, unless there is some compensating service to make up for the distractions.  Also no posters from anime shows that are likely to never have any service or sex appeal of any kind even in their posters.

Also, because somebody asked in the comments, JBOX (aka J-LIST) has some of the magazines for sale.  Now mixed in with books for some reason.  They do sell out so you should buy them ASAP if you are interested.

Once again, Megami pools are the bookends including stragglers.
