Hope Chapman, aka [=JesuOtaku=], is by far the most successful and analytical of the former Website/DesuDesBrigade, currently a member of Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses.

She produces a review segment simply entitled "The [=JesuOtaku=] Anime Review". Her review approach is very analytical, using a four-star[[labelnote:*]]From a minimum of one star to a maximum of four, with half-star increments, yielding 7 total possible ratings.[[/labelnote]] rating system. She tries to be as objective as possible and may give high scores to shows that she doesn't personally like. She also produced her "summer project", an audio drama adaptation of ''Manga/FruitsBasket'', every Wednesday throughout summer 2011 (and which can be found [[http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/ir/jo/fruits-basket-radio-drama here]] if you're interested). She is notable for her large amount of shows:

* [[http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/ir/jo/in In-Betweens]]
* [[http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/ir/jo/nl New Lyrics]]
* [[http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/ir/jo/jolp Various]] {{Lets Play}}s.

Since joining Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses, she gained a great degree of success previously unseen. Despite efforts to keep the Website/DesuDesBrigade alive, she made the decision to officially leave the Brigade. This news, however, was rather redundant as the Brigade disbanded.

Her videos can be found [[http://blip.tv/jesuotaku here]] on Blip.tv, [[http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/ir/jo here]] on Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses, and [[https://twitter.com/#!/JesuOtaku here]] on {{Twitter}}. She also has a live stream, [[http://www.justin.tv/jesuotaku here]] and she can be found [[http://www.formspring.me/JesuOtaku here]] on Formspring. Additionally, she has also often appeared on [[WebVideo/WhatTheFuckIsWrongWithYou Nash]]'s long running Radio Dead Air internet radio show, which can be found [[http://live.radiodeadair.com/ here]]. She set up her own website in December 2012, which has everything she has a major role in, such as crossovers and panels at conventions, [[http://www.jesuotaku.com/ here.]]

In January 2013, Hope announced that she'd be part of an adaptation of ''VisualNovel/KatawaShoujo'', named ''Katawa Seiyu'' being released on Website/YouTube. The trailer is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KNBlZiEfY8o here.]] JO herself has recorded auditions for several characters, which can be listened to [[https://soundcloud.com/jesuotaku/sets/katawa-seiyu-demos here]]. She has been cast as the voice of [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} Rin]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zz16z8-8hwo Tezuka]].

----
!![=JesuOtaku=] provides examples of the following tropes:

* AbortedArc: Has happened twice, as Hope has stated on Formspring that she doesn't do plot arcs in her reviews:
** The first was after the ''Highschool Of The Dead'' review, where it seemed like Jesu was going to make other people watch bad anime (like what Sage had done to her), but since then, nothing's happened.
** The second is from ToBoldlyFlee, the fourth anniversary video for TGWTG- at the end, it's shown that [[Anime/CowboyBebop Edward]] was still in Jesu's mind, but Hope jossed any hopes Edward would be back in her reviews.
* {{Adorkable}}
* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: In her in-universe [[LetsPlay LP]] of ''VideoGame/SuperMario64'', she does a first-person, diary-like monologue if [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Mario]] was actually an Italian plumber from...well...Italy, felt like he was hallucinating, and eventually became a thrill-seeking, [[AxeCrazy sociopathic]], [[EvilOverlord evil-overlord-to-be]] with [[AGodAmI a god complex]] who never "gets some" from [[LoveInterest Peach]].
** Her recent 'Penguin Lottery' can easily point to a more {{Ax Crazy}} side of JO.
* ArchEnemy: WebVideo/BennettTheSage, who subjects her to terrible anime in attempts to break her, because...that's not really clear.
** In the ''Manga/HighschoolOfTheDead'' review, it's revealed to be [[spoiler:a combination of CorruptTheCutie and PassingTheTorch once JO, like himself, finds a self-admittedly bad anime that she still wants to share with the world.]]
* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: A common thread in her written introductions for each of the villains in her "Top 20 Deliciously Evil Villains".
* AuthorAppeal: She seems to have a liking to adding emoticons anytime she has to add text on a clip.
** Taken UpToEleven in her review of ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'', where she takes great delight in abusing [[MemeticMutation Kyubey's face]] /人◕‿‿◕人\.
* AuthorFilibuster: She used her ''Anime/{{FLCL}}'' review as an opportunity to go on a rant about how StudioGainax are complete HACKS when it comes to making [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Psychological]] [[Anime/ThisUglyYetBeautifulWorld Dramas]] and that they should stick to [[RuleOfCool over-the-top goofiness]] and simple morals. She addressed this fact on her {{Twitter}}, and stated that the reason she did this was because ''Anime/{{FLCL}}'' was just way too simple for even ''her'' to talk about at length.
** Her ''Manga/HighschoolOfTheDead'' dub overview gives her a good chance to vent about why she loathes Stephen Foster's adaptive work.
** To avoid spoilers in her review of ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'', she instead decided to talk about how a DarkerAndEdgier {{Subversion}} for its own sake is not inherently [[TropesAreNotGood good]].
* BerserkButton:
** InUniverse, {{Moe}}, and now also an ecchi comedy about BrotherSisterIncest called ''[[Manga/OniichanNoKotoNankaZenzenSukiJanainDakaraNe Oniichan No Koto Na...]]'' [[LongTitle ah, screw it]]. She found it painful just to get through ''the first minute'' of the first episode.
** She also seems to have a real and legitimate hatred of people questioning her on why she doesn't care for ''[[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood]]''. To be fair, this is because people did this ''incessantly'' after she made her lukewarm feelings towards it clear. The same is true for the ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' manga and the episode "Boogie Woogie Feng Shui" from ''Anime/CowboyBebop''. Also, don't get her started on any recent work done by ADR Director/Scriptwriter Steven Foster.
** Also comes into effect when someone dismisses anime and/or manga as a legitimate art form, like [[WebVideo/BrowsHeldHigh Oancitizen]] did in their crossover review of TheMovie of ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena'':
-->'''Jesu:''' Do I have to [[Film/ThreeHundred Sparta Kick]] you [[DestinationDefenestration through a window]]? [[[KnuckleCracking cracks knuckles]]]
* BrainBleach:
** Probably needed it after ''Manga/IkkiTousen'', and even more after ''Eiken'', never mind ''Anime/MasterOfMartialHearts''...
** Subverted in her ''Anime/MasterOfMartialHearts'' review, surprisingly. Sage got a PyrrhicVictory there.
* BreakTheCutie:
** Usually calm and collected, JO was reduced to a fit of hysterical rage by the final fight of the ''Manga/YuYuHakusho: Dark Tournament'' [[LetsPlay video game.]]
** WebVideo/BennettTheSage 's goal for her. So far he's failed all three times.
** She was reduced to tears after [[ShipSinking her ship was sunk]] in the Franchise/{{Digimon}} Movie.
* BreakupBreakout: Not quite. Rather than leaving the [[Website/DesuDesBrigade Brigade]] after joining up with Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses, she still tried to be a loyal brigadier, and her new-found popularity did in fact bring in more viewers to the Brigade's site; however, her indecisiveness coupled with her AttentionDeficitCreatorDisorder caused her to grow increasingly distant from the Brigade, unofficially breaking off from it about a year from its official disbandment.
* BriefAccentImitation: Takes on a self-admittedly goofy Brooklyn gangster accent for the introduction of her ''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}'' review.
* BrokeTheRatingScale: JO gave ''[=KissXSis=]'' a -5/5 and ''Manga/OniichanNoKotoNankaZenzenSukiJanainDakaraNe'' a GTFO.
* CatchPhrase:
** "[[Manga/YuYuHakusho Sayonara, bye bye!]]"
** "On the technical side of things..."
** "All in all..."
** "That's not a metaphor."
* CatsAreMean: One of JO's cats (the calico) isn't very friendly, as seen in the review for ''Manga/FruitsBasket''.
* CheshireCatGrin / SlasherSmile: Sage looks ''terrifying'' at the end of the ''Manga/KoiKaze'' review. Seriously, he looks like the cat out of ''VideoGame/AmericanMcGeesAlice''.
** As is evidenced in her review of ''[[VisualNovel/HigurashinoNakuKoroni Higurashi]]'', JO is fully capable of doing this on her own, coupled with a ''[[CreepyAwesome chilling]]'' EvilLaugh.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}:
** It's not as apparent in her reviews, but if you watch her Let's Plays, especially the ''Videogame/StarFox64'' and ''VideoGame/SuperMario64'' ones, it becomes clear that JO is something of one.
** She also mentions in her ''Manga/AzumangaDaioh'' review that among her friends, she's known as the [[TropeCodifier Osaka]] of the group.
* CompanionCube: Her [[FunWithSubtitles snarktitles]]. Until they have a brief falling out about their use in the ''Anime/NowAndThenHereAndThere'' review, making up afterward. They were ''not'' happy when [[WebVideo/WhatTheFuckIsWrongWithYou Nash]] subbed in to review ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated''.
* CoolBigSis: She lets her little sister make cameos in the live-action intros (''Manga/{{BECK}}'' and ''Anime/PrincessTutu'' being notable examples), and off-screen shares some of the more child-friendly anime with her.
* CouchGag: TheTeaser of each episode has JO doing something relating to the subject: For ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'', she's dressed as Yoko and making a appropriately HotBlooded speech, for ''Manga/{{Mahoromatic}}'', she acts as a maid but can't keep it up and for ''Manga/{{Chobits}}'' she's [[BrainUploading installed her mind in a new body]].
* CovertPervert: JO may be very academic and studious, but she might have a dirtier mind then [[Website/DesuDesBrigade Vix]], as seen in "[[http://www.desudesbrigade.com/2010/05/pocky-spot-episode-22-2/ Pocky Spot 22]]":
-->"Kyoya, you're not quite dressed for the occasion; ''you have to take your pants off too!''"
-->"The correct response to this situation would be to grab his shoulders, throw him on the bed and ride him like a stallion!"
* {{Crossover}}: The number has been steadily rising since she joined [=TGWTG=]. Notable examples include:
** Her status as a regular on Nash's [[WebVideo/WhatTheFuckIsWrongWithYou WTFIWWY]] and Radio Dead Air. (He returns the favor by appearing on her streams on a regular basis, and also appeared in her review of ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated''.)
** A review of ''Film/SuckerPunch'' with [[WebVideo/BadMovieBeatdown Film Brain]].
** The ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena'' movie with Oancitizen of WebVideo/BrowsHeldHigh.
** Reviewing ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}: TheMovie'' with WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic.
** A role in the TGWTG fourth anniversary film, ''WebVideo/ToBoldlyFlee''.
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: Her "Top 15 Dub Themes", invoked in-universe. Topping the list was, but of course, ''[[Anime/{{Pokemon}} Pokémon]]''. Nothing specific, just ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}''.
* DeadpanSnarker: Her "snarktitles" in all of her reviews but ''Anime/NowAndThenHereAndThere''.
* DearNegativeReader: Released a full-length one over her Twitter sometime around mid/late-2011 in response to the frequent complaints about her aforementioned ADCD. It's now nearly impossible to find due to JO tweeting like a hamster on coffee.
* DespairEventHorizon: Bennett the Sage keeps trying to "break" Jesu by showing her horrible, sick anime. It eventually backfired when she got over it, but ''he'' got depressed.
* DoesNotLikeGuns: Makes it very clear in the Summer 2013 Anime Derby that she dislikes guns when she gives her opinion on how Stella Academy C3 treated the subject.
* DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale: Her crossover review of ''Film/SuckerPunch'' with [[WebVideo/BadMovieBeatdown Film Brain]] was a pretty severe example of this, as she clobbers him a fair amount for comedy.
* DrinkingGame: One for her weekly livestream [[https://docs.google.com/document/d/1y1cqaPK3ejGT4mqOAMjSxnqKqkb9IdLcZ9V4dmZA5zc/edit here.]]
* EroticEating: Subverted in the end credits for the ''Eiken'' review.
* EvilIsCool: {{Invoked|Trope}} as the main criteria for her "Top 20 Deliciously Evil Villains" list.
* {{Fingore}}: Her review of ''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}'' got a rating of "three and a half de-fingerings out of four".
* FakeBrit: [[invoked]] She makes fun of this trope at the beginning of her ''{{Anime/Hellsing}}'' review.
--> [[OnceAnEpisode Hello, and welcome to the [=JesuOtaku=] Anime Review.]] Your mission today is to sit right where you are and listen to me talk about vampires [[LampshadeHanging in a very baloney British accent.]] May God and Her Majesty be with you. Amen.
* {{Fanservice}}:
** She dresses in a bikini top and shorts for her ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' review intro, emulating Yoko.
** When reviewing the ''Anime/{{Witchblade}}'' anime--after eviscerating ''Manga/IkkiTousen'', ''Eiken'', and ''Anime/MasterOfMartialHearts''--she points out she doesn't ''hate'' {{Fanservice}}, but is sick of it being used in an incompetent or misogynistic fashion.
* [[FarmBoy Farm Gal]]
* FunWithAcronyms:
** '''P'''riggish '''M'''eryl '''S'''trife from ''Trigun''. She's-- hold on.
-->'''JO:''' That [[MenstrualMenace explains an awful lot]], actually!
** Ditzy Millie Thompson. ([[MushroomSamba DMT]])
* FunWithSubtitles: The "snarktitles" that point things out and make witty asides about the action on screen without JO's narration having to go off on tangents. Sometimes they undercut or make fun of her, too. While introducing the review for ''Anime/NowAndThenHereAndThere'', JO gets into a fight with them.
* GagBoobs: To make fun of the large breasts of one of the main characters in the anime ''Anime/{{Grenadier}}'', JO stuffed soccer balls up the top of her T-shirt, and as part of the joke, and even balanced a plate of food on them and ate from it. In her last Q&A, [[Website/DesuDesBrigade Vixen]] made a TakeThat to that, by doing the same with her ''real'' boobs.
* GagNose: In her ''Manga/{{Phoenix}}'' review, she points out a recurring character's bulbous and almost tumorous nose. She even plays the ''Film/{{Inception}}'' music while zooming the camera in on it to point out how bizarre it is.
* GenkiGirl: According to the cast commentary for ''ToBoldlyFlee'', Hope doesn't walk into a room, she bounces.
* HeroesLoveDogs: She's been shown playing with a roommate's dog, and her love for wolves is part of why she loves ''Manga/WolfsRain''.
* HeyItsThatVoice: [[invoked]] JO plays this game a few times, more notably in her review of ''Manga/JyuOhSei''.
* HurricaneOfEuphemisms: While summarizing ''Manga/IkkiTousen'', JO went through just about every synonym for [[PantyShot underwear]] (and a few breast mentions as well). It underscores that [[ThisIsGonnaSuck this review is going to be rough]].
* ItIsPronouncedTroPAY: YAY-zoo? JEH-soo? She's pronounced it both ways...
* KindheartedCatLover: She enjoys letting cats show up (i.e. her roommates' cats) in her videos.
* LetsPlay: ''VideoGame/StarFox64'', ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask'', and ''VideoGame/SuperMario64'' on the Nintendo64.
* MoodWhiplash: Directly after reviewing ''Manga/FruitsBasket'', JO reviewed ''Anime/NowAndThenHereAndThere'', an anime she considered too depressing to even make fun of.
* MotorMouth: Gets into this mode occasionally.
* MultiColoredHair: Once sported black hair with red highlights. Generally nowadays has red hair with either a brighter shade of red or blonde in her hair.
* NakedPeopleAreFunny: In the ''Anime/{{Witchblade}}'' review, as she has no clean laundry and a job interview:
--> '''[=JesuOtaku=]:''' By God, if I can't make a good impression, I might as well make a ''lasting'' one!
* NoodleImplements: She kept interrupting Nash's intro to his "Top Classic Doctor" review to ask him for yarn, raw meat, rebar and really sturdy bricks.
* NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer:
** The line "That's not a metaphor" is something of a RunningGag.
** A particularly unbelievable bit in ''Anime/MasterOfMartialHearts'' gets a "THIS IS A THING THAT HAPPENS" caption.
* PetPeeveTrope: [[invoked]] [[{{Glurge}} Forced drama]], {{Moe}} pandering, {{Ecchi}}, "Exactly like the Japanese version" dubs, [[EndingAversion shoddy endings]], {{Gorn}}, and [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot flat-out wasting the potential of your premise.]]
* PokemonSpeak: Points out Nyu's tendency to do this in ''Manga/ElfenLied''.
* PrecisionFStrike: Happens in the beginning review of ''Anime/FullmetalAlchemist'' when JesuOtaku is talking to people over her monitor about what anime to review for her 50th review. Sage shows up.
-->'''Sage''': Hi there.
-->'''Jesu''': ''FUCK!'' *changes channel quickly*
* PrettyFlyForAWhiteGuy: In the opening to ''Anime/SamuraiChamploo'' review and her first line of the ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'' retrospective. The snarktitles are not impressed.
--> ''Aow! It's August!''
* ReadingsBlewUpTheScale: JO's "{{Metafiction}} meter" blows up at least twice during her review of ''DigimonTamers''.
* RealWomenNeverWearDresses: The ''Manga/{{Mahoromatic}}'' review starts with her playing a maid, before she gives it up and complains "I'm in a ''dress''. I'm wearing ''make-up''. I hate all of you."
* RunningGag:
** Her gripes about {{GONZO}} and their varying production values.
** The silly voices she uses for characters in her playthrough of [[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Path of Radiance]].
** From her livestream, [[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Boyd]] being blamed when something crashes or doesn't work properly on the stream, and the people in the chat shouting "NAIL!" whenever Soren, who has the voice of Super Kami Guru, appears. It has gotten to the point where JO tells them early on to get it out of their system.
* SayMyName: JO at the end of the ''Manga/KoiKaze'' review, upon realizing [[WebVideo/BennettTheSage who]] sent her ''Anime/MasterOfMartialHearts''.
-->JO: '''''SAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGE!!!!'''''
* SecretTestOfCharacter: The end of the Anime/HighschoolOfTheDead seems to imply that Sage was using this anime, and possibly the other horrible anime he suggested, to this effect.
* ShooOutTheClowns:
** JO forwent her usual "Snark Text" subtitles during her ''Anime/NowAndThenHereAndThere'' review for fear of damning her eternal soul by making fun of something so depressing.
** Except in one short instance: Lampshading the intentional MoodWhiplash (From the director of ''Manga/FruitsBasket'', everybody!).
* TheSmartGirl: For the Website/DesuDesBrigade.
* SomethingElseAlsoRises: In JO's review for ''Manga/{{Chobits}}'', she gave it X "Good Mornings" with appropriate gestures.
* {{Squee}}:
** The snarktitles don't pass the chance in the ''Manga/OuranHighSchoolHostClub'' review.
** She confused WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic by squeeing at part of the ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'' movie.
--> '''JO:''' Sorry...I squeed.
* StupidSexyFlanders:
** From the ''Anime/CowboyBebop'' review, she has this reaction almost every time Faye Valentine's on screen:
--> "Seriously [[HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday I'm straight]] but [[EvenTheGirlsWantHer that girl]] is [[MsFanservice dead sexy]]."
** Elizabeth from ''Manga/{{Trigun}}''
--> "Wow. It's times like this I wish I could whistle. You could stop traffic with a body like that."
* {{Tomboy}}: From the way she dresses to the shows she likes, JO is pretty masculine. She makes it crystal clear in the start of her ''Manga/{{Mahoromatic}}'' review that dolling herself up is not a hobby of hers.
* TopTenList: Top X Lists, mostly. Top 20 Villains, Top 15 Dubbed Anime Themes, Top 15 Stupidest Izzyisms, Top 15 Nerd Jokes in It must have been our imagination.
* WallBang: Does this before reviewing ''Eiken''.
* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: {{Invoked}}: When commenting on the scenes that didn't get edited out of the Creator/{{Toonami}} showing of ''OutlawStar'', she snarks "Creator/{{Toonami}}: Women abuse...for kids! :D"
* WhatTheHellHero: Calls out [[WebVideo/BrowsHeldHigh Kyle]]- who, it should be noted, was reviewing Melancholia and thus had already crossed the DespairEventHorizon and was in a HeroicBlueScreenOfDeath- when he points out how any crossovers with JO would mostly involve Kyle as the ButtMonkey because he doesn't like Anime as much as JO.
* WhoNamesTheirKidDude: Asked this via snarktitles in regards to ''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}''[='=]s Jacuzzi Splot. ("No really, WHAT were his parents on?")
* YourMakeupIsRunning: Manages to cause her mascara to run while crying over Tai's UnluckyChildhoodFriend status with Sora in the [[Franchise/{{Digimon}} Digimon: The Movie]] review, despite not wearing any to begin with.
* YourMom: In the snark text captions of her ''Anime/OutlawStar'' review, when comparing the plot structure to a round robin story-telling game:
-->"I went to the store and saw..."
-->"Your mom! OOH!"
-->"Come on, Brad, can we get through ONE ROUND!?"
-->"That's what your MOM said last night! OOH!"
