Megami Magazine (メガミマガジン Megami Magajin?) is a Japanese monthly magazine which focuses on bishōjo characters from anime and Japanese computer and console games. It is known for having many posters, pinups and large pictures among the articles. Digital Manga Publishing released compilations of what it determined to be the best of the magazine beginning in Summer 2007.[2]

Spin-offs[edit]

Along with the main Megami Magazine line, Gakken also publishes several other titles using the same name or content.

Girls Avenue[edit]

Girls Avenue was a section in Megami Magazine where an artist was featured and one of his or her illustrations was included as a pinup poster. As of Megami Magazine volume 150, the Girls Avenue section has been discontinued and is now released as a series of art books.[3]

Megami Magazine Creators[edit]

Megami Magazine Creators showcases the artwork of individual artists typically involved with manga, games, and anime. All of the illustrations featured are printed full-page, but there are no pinup posters. Most volumes of Megami Magazine Creators include a large double-sided poster.[3]

Megami Magazine Deluxe[edit]

Megami Magazine Deluxe is published quarterly and features full-page prints of illustrations found in the regular Megami Magazine volumes. Most volumes of Megami Magazine Deluxe include a large double-sided poster.[3]

Megami Magazine Goods+[edit]

Megami Magazine Goods+ is expected to first be published in August 2013. Each volume will include extras that are of greater value than those found in the regular Megami Magazine.[3]
