Thats right Curt aka cloudsora messaged me the day before yesterday asking if I wanted to come with him and Rich aka Aareate, and Alan(not a staff member) to Tokyo Kid in the Garage Mall at Harvard SQ. Of course I said yes, me being out of school and taking some personal time before I begin hunting for work as a photographer I had the time so we met at 1:30 today. Well that was the plan if theres one thing that makes me worry for Curt's future it's that even if he's making the plans he has the innate ability to be late (though not by much). So we get on the train and head in, nothing worth while happened on the ride in just us talking so Curt started playing his new MGS Peace Walker for his new PSP (lucky S.O.B.).
So anyway when we got to Harvard SQ we headed right for Tokyo Kid and god do I love it there! We don't really have that many anime specialty stores here in MA which is always a bummer but the ones we do have are nice and Tokyo Kid is definitely one of my favorite stores (its just to bad whenever I go I never have as much muney as I'd like to have to get the MG models). Well I myself had $30 on me today (from selling the Beck manga I don't read to Curt) so i couldn't really get much but I did manage to get some stuff I've wanted. First off a Celestial Being phone strap from Gundam 00 which is all I got at Tokyo Kid but after that we went to the Newbury Comics next door where Curt proceeded to buy (6) almost every boxset in the store (including some I'd love to get my hands on myself) because they were cheap (120.00 exact) but I did manage to get something there; the first 3 volumes of the Chobits anime and if you were to ask anyone that knew me they'd tell you I love chobits and clamp in general so I was happy when I got these.

no mater how hard I tri I cant leve this site oh well gess I do got sumthing intrasting for you this week and that wood be I resently wotched the pre relese ep of the new season of Sekirei Ironicly dubed pure engagement and I say this is a ironic title becuse its got a dule meening to it IE bolth a fighting wise and love wise witch are to inportent aspects of this aime but befor I get into the new season hears the story behind season one
Minato Sahashi is extremely intelligent, yet due to his inability to cope under pressure has failed the college entrance exam twice. As a result he has been branded an idiot and loser by many. One day after talking to his yet again disappointed mother he comes into contact with a girl named Musubi who was under attack. The girl runs but takes him with her and soon finds that Minato, while unknown to him, is an Ashikabi, one of the mysterious set of masters that have the genetic trait that can become partners with some of the 108 cute girls, buxom women, and bishōnen(cute boy) called "Sekirei". The reason for the partnership allows the Sekirei to use all their power to win in the competition held by the mysterious MBI corporation.
I know not mutch to wrap your brain arownd but the storys got a nother LV of depth to it witch is the main reson im watching season 2 now I gave season 1 a 8 over all but just from the fist ep of season 2 I gave it a 7 witch meens this anime as a hole has the potenchol of a 10 thanks to the deep story that is being claverly hidden beneth the fan sevus (witch mind you thare is a a ton and I meen that in the mesherment scale not just as a play on words)
now for the story behind season 2 its just the cuntinuation of season one lol(did you think thard be another hole Synopsis for a anime with lil to no time skip )

At this point your thinking: "Nick going on a hiatus!? Something Completely different!? Won't do any good!? Heard it before!? 11 times!?! (lol spongebob)
But before you go and double-check if your on Otaku Home allow me to assure you that you indeed are at Nick's Otaku Home Blog.
But where are my manners? Greetings to you! From the loyal followers to the "I accidentally found this place, lol what is it?" allow me to introduce myself. I am Aareate..or erm "Rich" if that is too hard to pronounce. It really isn't though, think of "R-8" and say that out loud or imagine someone with a Boston accent saying "R-8" which makes more sense seeing that I am from the Boston area.
But I digress... Now at this point your probably wondering: "Who the hell is this smuck?"
Wellllll, I'm a good friend of Nick and went to high school with him. And I've been asked to help contribute to his blog (read: asked a looong time ago and only now doing a first post). Now I've never done anything like a blog before and I'm not as savvy in the Anime Industry as my other blog-mates here. And seeing that I'd rather not just copypasta news stories from other sites here I figured I'd do what I know I can do. Review Gunpla Models!!!
I've got quite the reputation among my friends every Anime Boston to go and buy a ton of Gundam models and blow hundreds upon hundreds every year. So within the next few weeks (read: the next time im at my fathers :) ) I'll begin putting up reviews for my Gundam Model collection. I'll have many pictures showing the models in poses and such and give opinions about parts that gave me a headache and things i like about the models. So stay tuned for more posts by me starting with a review of the 2 Pack 1/144 HGUC Char Azbable Rick Dom and G-3 Gundam!!!

okay well iv finally seen the BD ver of eva 2.22 and i have to say im glade i held off on this review becuse this rely is the definativ ver of the movie like eva 1.11BD is the definativ of the prequel (kinda obveuse huh) so what Im saying her is not evin bother with the SD ver buy the BD when it comes over to the US even if it meens buying a blue ray player(I know I will)
okay now on to the movie itself the animetion in this movie is stuning esaly sum of the best Iv seen since well eva 1.11 they made shore to inpruve wall at the same time makeing shore it wood look simaler to the preveus and the way they do this is by makeing the CG look and move more realistic but still cell shaded and the hand drown cells portion of the movie looks great as usawell
the music was as good as youed exspect an eva sound track to be (and by exspect I meen knowing it will blow you away) the one oude this about it was this movie had two chariter songs one in the eva 1 VS eva 3 fight and one in the eva 1 vs zeruel fight and your probly whondering why this is wherd well most anime movies only have one chariter song EOE had come swet death and nuthing els but this one had 2 so this was a happy saprise
sadly the story is ware this movie is the weekest (thow even thow its the weekest pont its still strong) and the reson for this is becuse to do what they whanted to do in the 3rd and 4th moie they needed to get all the monster of the week eps that wher in the midol of the serres out of the way thust resolting in this movie feeling alil rushed but I persanaly think they did a great job passing themselfs on this and it alows them to do whatever they whant with the next 2 movies
so over all eva 2.22 gets 10 WTF FTW out of 10
