Y: Ruler of Time (Nikolas Freeman) is a manga reviewer for Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses and [[LordKat LordKat Live]]. On TGWTG he has a review show called ''Read Right to Left'', with many explanatory notes about manga tropes and Japanese culture, and a newer show called ''Small Page, Big Screen'' where he looks at [[FilmOfTheBook movie adaptations of manga]]. On [=LordKat=] Live he hosts the podcast ''Weekly Manga Recap'' with RolloT and occasional guests. Also an avid fan of [[TVTropes this very site]], which he [[JustForFun/NotableReferencesToTVTropes references regularly]]. Can be found [[http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/ir/yrt here]], [[http://www.lordkat.com/wmr here]], [[http://blip.tv/y-ruler-of-time here]] and [[http://readrighttoleft.blogspot.com/ here]].

!!Tropes:
* ArtisticLicenseReligion: He stated that Christianity was founded in Europe, while it was technically founded in the Middle East. This is understandable since it spread throughout Europe early on. He also stated earlier that he knew very little about Christianity outside of popular culture references.
* BadassBeard
* BerserkButton: It was pushed hard when he learned of ''Film/DragonballEvolution'' calling ki attacks [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender airbending,]] and it took a punch from [=LordKat=] to knock him out of it.
--> '''Ruler:''' '''''WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS HYPER-CONDEMNED SHITCURB OF A MOVIE?!'''''
** He also loves to bash ''PrinceOfTennis'' and ''{{Naruto}}'' at every opportunity.
** His reaction to RolloT calling {{Gantz}} a Shonen Series during Weekly Manga Recap is something to behold.
** And, of course, don't call ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' an anime. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W-agFEAgDXc&feature=related Just don't.]]
** '''Sasuke'''.
** And now, '''Manga/{{Bleach}}''' and Creator/TiteKubo. However it's because Bleach was the first manga series he read and was angry to see it going bad.
*** The revelation that [[spoiler: "Old Man" Zangetsu was actually a representation of his Quincy powers]] led to a LONG rant on Weekly Manga Recap. He was not happy.
** Manga involving bad parenting does not amuse him.
** He SNAPPED when he got to the last five chapters of UsagiDrop.
** Kazumasa Hirai, after reading Wolf Guy and the second half the Spider-Man manga.
** Frosch from ''Manga/FairyTail'', as his entire character is agreeing with people with the same line "Fro thinks so too!"
* CatchPhrase: "Until then, forget what they taught you in school and always [[TitleDrop read right to left.]]"
** "And feminism marches on..."
* {{Crossover}}: With JewWario in one issue of ''Read Right to Left'', to review (the Sentinel chapters of) ''Manga/FrankenFran''.
* CurseCutShort: His reaction to not being in the ''WebVideo/TGWTGYearOneBrawl''.
* DeadpanSnarker: Many of his analysis include very funny lines without cracking in the middle.
* FailedASpotCheck: The review of ''Alive'' ends with the lights going on and a masked man with a knife sneaking into his room. When he turns the lights back on, he looks around the room and somehow misses the masked man even though he's ''standing in plain sight not even bothering to hide.''
* FascinatingEyebrow: Just look at the opening to RRTL!
* FlatWhat: [[https://twitter.com/#!/yruleroftime/status/172465179341230081 His reaction]] to [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2012-02-22/warner-develops-live-action-film-of-tite-kubo-bleach-manga news]] of a Warner-developed live-action Manga/{{Bleach}} movie.
* HeelRealization
** When wondering how PrinceOfTennis got almost 400 chapters in Jump, he suddenly realized it's because of the Fanservice and the girl readers.
--> '''[=YRoT=]''': *Facepalm* "This series is sustained by the fangirls..."
* HotBlooded: This is the man who almost broke his mike through shouting when Sasuke reappeared in {{Naruto}}.
* HeroicBSOD: The end of PrinceOfTennis 3.
* LamePunReaction: In his ''Manga/FrankenFran'' review: When talking about how Sentinel Vengeance III's vengeance fetish cost him the chance to finish the other Sentinels, he says that "from there, the problem keeps ''*raises a finger*'' cumming up !". He then weakly laughs before JewWario says he should be ashamed of himself, to which he admits he is.
* LesserStar: Has become this for Weekly Manga Recap as of late, thanks to the Weekly Shonen Jump podcast remembering RolloT more, almost to the point of acting like there's two RolloT's hosting the podcast.
* LostInTranslation: Touches on this in his review of ''SchoolRumble''.
* MisaimedFandom: Addressed in-universe by Y Ruler of Time in "Reaction Shots" with various series:
-->'''What To Take From It''': Death is but another aspect of life, but the nature of the soul is eternal and [[FantasticAesop meddling with it can have consequences]].\\
'''What We DO Take From It''': [[Manga/{{Bleach}} BANKAI!]]
* OneOfUs: Mentioned above, he mentions this site quite frequently.
* RatedMForManly: His Top 5 Badass MAN-ga Characters list.
* RootingForTheEmpire: {{Invoked}}, when he mentions that some of the villains in ''Manga/OnePiece'' are so good they almost make him want to root against the Straw Hats.
* ScheduleSlip: He averages one new video every couple of months or so.
* StraightMan: To RolloT whenever they're in a podcast together.
* UnfortunateImplications: Y Ruler of Time [[{{in-universe}} points this out]] in the manga ''Alive'' when the supervirus they're dealing with came from '''Africa''' after a man ate a '''monkey''' and they call the virus '''Black'''.
* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic: [[{{Invoked}} Referenced]] in his ''Manwha/LetsBible'' review. (The said manga itself is also an example.)
