    • I consider it a spoiler to listen to music from an anime I may someday watch. Let’s hope Yuki-nee works on something I’d never watch, like El Cazador de la Bruja II.

  1. Now I realize why you seem a bit brooding at times: you’ve taken way too many awful courses. It’s amazing you’re not suicidal.

    BTW, I always thought Baka-Raptor’s name came from the fact that the T-Rex was so stupid he thought he was a Raptor.

    • Who said I’m not suicidal? I did jump off a bridge that one time.

      The comic from the video explains all there is to know about the Baka- part, but the Raptor part has just a little more to it. The missing link is buried somewhere in this site…

  2. Interesting idea. I consider the worst period in my blog’s history to be the three months in 2008 when I didn’t watch any anime but ran my blog as normal. Hopefully you’ll fare a lot better than I did, and I do think your format allows for it (plus your ridiculous post backlog). FIVE MORE YEARS!!!

    Also this beats the shit out of the 4th anniversary post I was planning… maybe I should start over…

  3. Not going to be a problem for your blog considering the humongous amount of unpublished posts you have, but I hope your eyes get better

  4. Sorry, Baka-Raptor, I couldn’t finish the video because I kept getting asked by people around me whether I’m watching RWJ, whatever the fuck that is.

    1 year without anime, eh. Interesting enough, considering what Dez691 said . . . .

    • Awwwwwww fuuuuuuuuuuuck, a little digging shows that RWJ is Ray William Johnson, the guy Maddox objectively critiques in this video:

      I’ll show up in the next video with a different haircut.

    • Manga is perfectly fine, which would certainly make my anime ban less harsh if I ever read manga that wasn’t the basis of a finished/fillerized shounen anime.

  5. why would you not want to watch anime for a year? more importantly, are you sure you’ll hold out?
    ps. i used to like dinosaurs too.

    • Used to? Where did you lose your way? Jurassic Park III? (I didn’t see it.)

      I’ve been putting off other things for anime for 10 years. I can take a year to catch up.

      • take up a sport)
        i liked dinosaurs when i was 12. then i found out they are very boring, espeacially cause they don’t exist anymore. i went on to cuter real things like racoons. btw, jurassic park 3 was okay from what i remember.

  6. hey sir dinosaur

    you can technically still watch Wakfu, since it’s drawn in France
    (embed fail)

    equivocation! fuck yeah

  7. man good luck with this!

    I personally don’t think I could ever do such a thing unless I had something else to waste my time on all day everyday XD

  8. Within two weeks then, you’ll be watching anime again…

    C’mon, you can’t stop watching anime, otherwise the balance in the universe would be compromised.

    Is this some evil plot to extinct humans and put dinosaurs back to rule mother earth?

    • I will be watching anime within two weeks. It’ll simply fall under one of the exceptions. Don’t get excited though, the exceptions will not be abused.

  9. I think I am a fan of The Ghost of Pizza-Raptor. of course, as a lover of dinosaurs, this made me smile way too much.

    But…no anime for an entire year? I…would not be capable of that. You are stronger than I.

    • That would be impossible. If I can’t think about jerking off, there’s no way I’d be able to read Claymore. I can give up anime, but not the Claymore manga, not in a million years.

  10. Probably you’ll change your decision within 2 weeks after seeing Madoka Magica 😛 (I havent seen it yet,telling from all the hype it has got!)

  11. Your artist ability is quite amazing, I assume the reason you never followed up on that to become an profession artist is because you don’t want to work in burger king?

    • In high school I had to choose between art and music. I chose music. But even if I chose that as a profession, I’d still be flippin’ dem burgers at Wendy’s.

  12. Most depressing episode of Talk-A-Raptor? Probably.
    I hope you have some astounding plan to avoid living the (barely, marginally) most boring year of your life.

    Like a fiendish MLM plan. Or a desire to actually come into the next console generation. Or an ill-concieved plan to abandon all pretenses at lucrative employment and lose like thirty pounds and take on Manny Pacquiao for his most recent Super welterweight world champion title.

    • Plan? That would just make things more depressing.

      It’s about time to upgrade consoles, if I want to keep up with my lifelong pace of perpetually being 5 years behind on gaming.

      Boxing is out of the question. Raptors/T-Rexes/Deinonychus have terrible reach.

  13. Anniversary! Bring out the cake and other anniversary-like things!

    I’ll bet you two old burritos and some pocket lint that you won’t make it through the year.

    Would The Boondocks count as anime?

  14. This is all a cleverly disguised post to cover up the fact that you’re pulling in too many hours at the firm isn’t it? ISN’T IT? 3000 billable hours it is!

  15. Everything like this sounds hard until you try it. Then it turns out, meh. You didn’t need it after all.

    Besides: Naruto will still be going, and it will still suck, there will only be one new Evangelion movie, and pretty much nothing else will change drastically in that year.
