Seitokai no Reference Dropping

Wednesday, January 13th, 2010

Seitokai no Ichizon chronicles the hijinks of a five-girl student council. Each girl represents a different fetish: one is a loli, one is a sadist, one is a tomboy, one is a pussy, and one is a male. Every day in the student council room, these five girls continuously screw around and drop references until […]

Actually, Lucky Star is a Comedy

Saturday, November 7th, 2009

This is a slice-of-life picture. If you don’t get it, you’re looking it at wrong. Ever notice how Lucky Star is a comedy? Ever been told that if you’re not watching it as a slice-of-life anime, you’re watching it wrong? Ever wished that Baka-Raptor would write a post on how that’s the stupidest shit in […]

Two Problems with Maria†Holic

Saturday, February 28th, 2009

1. Punchline Overkill Holy shit, it’s like I’m watching Lucky Star all over again. Cut the bullshit punchline reinforcement and move on. Even Kanako’s lesbian observations are getting on my nerves. REALLY?!?! Perhaps some viewers have difficulty picking up lesbian innuendo. Not me. My lesbian mangekyou sharingan identifies lesbian innuendo 100x faster than Kanako and […]

No Receipt? No Return.

Friday, December 26th, 2008

The day after Christmas is a magical time when people flock to stores to return all the crappy gifts they’ve received. Certain anime personalities would like to make returns as well… Lelouch: Hello, I’d like to return this stupid-looking hat. Baka-Raptor: Do you have a receipt? Lelouch: No Baka-Raptor: No receipt, no return. Lelouch: Take […]

I Hate Animals

Saturday, December 20th, 2008

Animals are only good for three things: breakfast, lunch, and dinner. They used to be good for manual labor, but nowadays there’s nothing an animal can do that a machine can’t do better, faster, cheaper, and without shitting all over the place. Why does anime portray animals as cute and lovable? They’re stupid and self-indulgent. […]

RaptorCon 2008

Sunday, September 21st, 2008

I was planning to report on Anime Weekend Atlanta, but Hoshi broke her sacred vow to suck up to me by not finding me a place to stay. Luckily, I discovered another convention right in town! Best of all, it was conveniently located in my new apartment (not this overpriced dump). I hopped into my […]

Non-Haruhi Shows that Need a Second Season

Wednesday, May 21st, 2008

Ouran High School Host Club II: Auron High School Host Club Auron would be the perfect apology for the first season’s unbridled gaiety. Scene 1: Auron breaks the host club’s precious vase/knee caps. Scene 2: All the girls fall hopelessly in love with Auron. Scene 3: Auron rejects them all because he’s not pedophile. Scene […]

Talk-A-Raptor 01: The Swooping Descent of the Dark Emissary!

Monday, May 5th, 2008

Help Find Kibure! 100 Reasons to Vote for Baka-Raptor Don’t expect me to update for about a week. I’ve got a writing assignment to work on (which it’s almost as lame as Michael’s “I didn’t update because I was reading” excuse). Deal with it. This video is worth at least five written posts. If you’re […]

Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei: An Anime Comedy that’s actually funny

Wednesday, April 9th, 2008

When it comes to animated comedy, America tosses Japan the proverbial “football in the groin.” [vid]1zaGTWKtjBY[/vid] I’d take an episode of The Boondocks, South Park, Family Guy, or The Simpsons over any anime comedy (in that order). I’m not saying that anime isn’t funny. I laugh at anime all the time, but most of those […]
