For those who follow me on Twitter, you know I was rolling up the walls (the power of happiness gave me the strength to accomplish this feat) because I got my first edition of Sylph via my subscription with Fujisan. No more do I have to freak out about missing an issue or having to buy off…amazon.jp *barf*
Rather than keep the love to myself, I figured I’d do like @chungky and scan in some stuff for you guys to oogle at (@ chungky, you rock BTW for sharing your magazine stuff x3).
Unfortunately…the pictures came out huge! :O I’m definitely going to resize future pictures so they aren’t so massive! (I took up like 3% of my available free picture upload on this one post!!!! That’s how flippin big they are! *lol, that’s what she said*). The reason I say this is because below the cut is IMAGE INTENSIVE! If your computer can’t handle pictures of this calibar, it’s best not to click. I don’t want to be responsible for exploding your computers…(or the massive nosebleeding from the bishi overload x3)
That said, these are scans of the color page in the March Edition of Sylph ~ I did scans because they were in the beginning of the magazine (meaning it wouldn’t crease up the spine ~).
Hope you enjoy ~
Here’s the free shitajiki :3 It’s of Dear Girl Stories ~

Bishi man candy card game? WANT!
New Sylph Releases
Sylph telling us what new titles will be coming out in February (I have a blog post about that here ~)
Love Hijikata’s expression in the upper left corner. Totally want to put the caption TONIGHT – WE DINE ON TURTLE >:U
For a second, I thought Saitou was pinching Heisuke’s nose. I’m like, whut!? That’s more affection you’re displaying there than in your own arc in Jurenka!
The title pretty much says it all. Sylph is still fanboying about Hakuouki. It also talks about a DRAMA CD and the 2nd manga volume, which is coming out in February.
Dear Girl Stories: the Movie
An advertisement for the Dear Girl Stories movie (this was the movie that I mentioned in an old blog post x3). BTW I have no idea what the pickle in the bottom is supposed to represent…And I hope the screenshot in the upper portion isn’t something kinky. That man in the black better be dressed that way because he’s a superhero – and not someone in bondage…
DGS: 4Lovers Only Event
From what I can make out, this is a promotional event for DGS: 4Lovers Only. In the April Edition of Sylph, you get some stickers you can put on your body and in the May Edition of Sylph, you get something only described as a “Soul Stirring Set” *tentative title* :3 I’m curious as to what that is hohoho ~
Fujoshissu! Drama CD information
Basically Sylph is advertising their newest edition to their DRAMA CD line. In the February Edition, I believe they had sample CDs of this DRAMA CD bundled with it. I don’t really follow this series but it looks entertaining. I need to get the first volume to figure out what’s going on because it gets kind of crazy following each girl’s relationship!
Brothers Conflict article
Sylph must really be happy about Brothers Conflict. I mean, look how huge this article is!
That doctor on page #3 has me worried. He better be a pediatrician or else those toys in his pocket are going to look REAL suspicious. Especially if he has those toys while standing in the McDonald’s Playpen around >___>
I like the fat squirrel the protagonist has as a pet. Dear goodness – it’s HUGE! My dog would jizz herself if she could go chase that thing around xD
Also, how many effin brothers this chick got!? D: I wouldn’t be surprised if the mom knelled over dead once the 12th kid shot out of her Va-JJ. Was the whole neighborhood on her because none of those brothers look alike o__O
Ah, and this article answers a question you gave me earlier, @chungky. Turns out this is being developed as a game for the PSP :3 They’re going to do a Poke’mon thing and split the game into 2 version – Passion Pink (PP) and Brilliant Blue (BB).
Lol, I want your PP xD
Another otome game – Miyako. Am I the only one who looked at the main female character and thought CHIZURU!? (Hakuouki). And when I looked at the dude above her, I thought HIJIKATA!? (Hakuouki) IN CEREMONIAL GARB!? To the guy next to Hijikata cosplaying as a priest, A SESSHOMARU WANNA-BE!? (Inuyasha).
Awww, that blue hair monk dude reminds me of Fushigi Yuugi’s Chichiri. Chichiri was so awesome :3 Great comedic relief from that one!
The guys I’d probably chase after in this game would be the happy looking Green Hair Boy and the grumpy looking Red Hair Boy ~ I would so laugh if there was a route for the chicken thing with pants xDDDDD (it’s Japan…it’s entirely feasible!)
Besides talking about the game (which is going to be released for the PSP), this article also mentions that this series is going to turned into a manga. It’s first chapter will be in the April Edition of Sylph ~
Yamato Kareshi article
Whut!? Yamato Kareshi is an otome game :U But there’s no chick in the manga! I thought it was just about a bunch of dudes doing random stuff for the sake of doing something.
BTW love the fish necklace!
It’s a cell-phone based game ~
Advertising for Girl’s Style
I haven’t seen Starry Sky yet but key-chain is just plain cute =O
Lol, I like that guy just randomly nomming on those roses. It’s a good source of nutrition. Sometimes I even get a caterpillar :9 You won’t judge because I have a good looking face ;D
How many flippin’ Harukas are there!? Hasn’t that world been in peril enough!? (how about sending some of those bishies into this world?)
Really cute girly stuff <3
Here’s the last page. Fufufu, I love looking at all the cute stuff Sylph shows off. But then I’m sad by the realization I can’t get any of this stuff ;__; (without breaking the bank). Uta no Prince-sama gets some love in the upper left hand corner. Is it true that there’s going to be an anime adaptation? I hope it doesn’t suck like the manga did…(
well, it didn’t suck but if you were hoping for romance, it’s best to look elsewhere…which is sad, seeing how this is based off an otome game).
Cool that Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep is on there. Man, I’m so behind in the KH universe. But I don’t want to play the Little Mermaid world again in KH2 >___< It’s pain! Pain with Disney characters!
The game right next to it – Beast Master and Prince – is drawn by the same artist who drew the illustrations for the Petit Four video game. I want to get the artbook for Beast Master and Prince...the artwork is so sparkly @___@ Plus it’s bishi-tastic <3
I’ve never watched Durarara (
yeah, I live under a rock) but those charms are cute <3 Lol, why does that helmet have cat ears? Oh Japan, you just have to put cat ears on everything, now don’t you? xD
I have no idea what Alice x Cross is other than the fact it’s some sort of card game (this is the box that’s located underneath the Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep panel). This box has Hakuouki based cards @___@ Heck, if Magic the Gathering (or whatever those card games are called) had hawt stuff like these cards, I’d totally play the game! Go my sexy steeds! Blind your opponents with your sweaty abs! xD Oh no! Go into a defense position! Cover your face!
Lol, there’s “My Kare” next to Alice Cross. Ura Kare…psssft ﾌﾟｯ(※థэథ)∵.*.∵ (good memories)
x3 How I wish we could get different color PSPs (and DSs!). I’d love a light light blue color ~ would look way more feminine than my masculine black PSP xD
Well, that’s it for the color scans in the beginning of Sylph. I plan (maybe…I’m weird and may forget ^^;) on doing snippits of series I follow (by snippits, I mean like summaries consisting of barely 5 sentences). If there are any requests, just let me know and I’ll do a snippet of it (I’ll try anyway – if it’s of a series I’m not following, I may end up butchering the snippet xD). For a list of titles in the March Edition, please check here :3
As usually, I DON’T DO RAWs ;D
Thanks for reading ~
