* BaseBreaker: One of the largest ones on the entire site, to the point of being blacklisted on TGWTG Secrets and in the Secret Treehouse as of 2013.
* BrokenBase: As mentioned on WebVideo/ToBoldlyFlee's YMMV page, Hope's portrayal of Edward from ''Anime/CowboyBebop'' has earned mixed reviews. Shortly after the episode where she became Edward, Hope Tweeted that the ratio was around 70% in favor of it, with 30% disliking it. Funnily enough, this was long after she herself had noted in her review of ''Bebop'' that the character is extremely tricky to play without veering into being annoying.
* CriticalResearchFailure:
** The Witchblade review. When listing off differences between the anime and comics (in voiceover form with Nash, a casual fan of the comics, [[CrowningMomentOfFunny slowly becoming more distressed as they go on]]), the majority of the listed differences are not supported by the facts of the show. To be fair, however, none of her errors are things that are blatantly inaccurate, and one of them is supported by what's shown and said in the series until you consider that [[spoiler:Masane is a temporary bearer, not the intended recipient of the Witchblade.]]
** Her retrospectives on ''DigimonAdventure'' mentions that the series was meant to be only thirteen episodes, which has been long debunked in the ''{{Digimon}}'' fandom.
* CreatorsPet: She is a mixed example (as she's regarded as being a good critic on her own), but this comes across primarily in her crossovers with other critics, especially in her review of ''Film/SuckerPunch'' with [[WebVideo/BadMovieBeatdown Film Brain]] and ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena'' with [[WebVideo/BrowsHeldHigh Kyle]]. Jesu throughout the ''Sucker Punch'' review physically abuses Film Brain (a rare case of DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale for TGWTG), and her crossover with Kyle drives him insane (and is brought up multiple times afterwords). Also, while most crossovers have one person suffering for something (WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic frequently being bullied, Todd chasing after Lupa until WebVideo/ToBoldlyFlee, etc), this never happens to JO, which is highly glaring.
* CrossesTheLineTwice: The Penguin Lottery [[spoiler:wherein she broadcasted her game of Zoo Tycoon, creating an exhibit with 150 penguins and 5 polar bears, and had the people watching her stream bet on which penguin would survive the longest. Accompanied by Yakkity Sax.]]
* DudeNotFunny: Her abusing Film Brain in the ''Film/SuckerPunch'' crossover counts for some sensitive souls. Several fans took note and complained that considering how TGWTG generally avoids the DoubleStandardAbuseFemaleOnMale (Or just brings to mind harsh memories of being abused), the fight here was extremely one-sided.
* FanHater: One of the causes of the general BrokenBase around her.
* FoeYay: The thing between her and Bennett The Sage, even by TGWTG's standards and that's saying something.
* HilariousInHindsight:
** In her ''Eiken'' review, Sage points out that JO would probably not have that much of a problem with it if the show were about a [[CastFullOfPrettyBoys a cast full of muscular pretty boys]] in revealing outfits and with big...endowments, to which JO awkwardly tries to change the subject. Skip ahead a couple of years, and JO sees ''Anime/{{Free}}''...which is pretty much ''exactly what Sage described''. And JO ''really did'' like it![[note]]Although that's more to do with the fact that the show's writers are at least ''trying'' to give it a plot and three-dimensional characters along with the manservice than the manservice itself[[/note]]
** At the end of the review of ''MasterOfMartialHearts'', to explain the severity of the show's SuddenDownerEnding while avoiding actually spoiling it, she compares it to the ending of ''SchoolDays'', feeling that there's next to zero chance of that ever getting officially released in America so it's okay to compromise and spoil that series' end instead. Nearly three years after the review was posted, [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2014-02-26/discotek-licenses-school-days-magical-heart-kokoro-chan Discotek revealed that they had acquired the rights to the School Days anime and would be giving it an American release the following summer.]]
* NightmareFuel: The intro to her ''Higurashi'' review. She says hello, brings out a cleaver and laughs like a demon.
* [[SugarWiki/HeReallyCanAct She Really Can Act]]:
** Her cameo in the ''WebVideo/BrowsHeldHigh'' review for ''Film/{{Melancholia}}'' had her switch on a dime from her familiar cheery self to heartbreakingly solemn and disappointed when Kyle lashes out at her in his depression.
** Her ''Katawa Seiyu'' auditions continue the trend of showing off Hope's acting skills, particularly her audition for Rin, which can be seen [[https://soundcloud.com/jesuotaku/sets/katawa-seiyu-demos here.]]
** The amount of characters' voices she can display during any of her Let's Plays, cornerstones of her Saturday stream session, is astounding.
* [[HePannedItNowHeSucks She Panned It, Now She Sucks]]: Like any internet critic, she's had her share of this.
** Her review of ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena'' proved to be very controversial in the show's fandom, and led to her old [[UnfortunateImplications homophobic comments]] that [[OldShame she'd disowned entirely by that point]] [[NeverLiveItDown being brought up]] and causing no end of problems for the TGWTG producers.
** In one week, she upset [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Bronies]], [[Franchise/StarTrek Trekkies]], and [[Series/DoctorWho Whovians]] by slamming ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls'' ([[ComplainingAboutShowsYouDontWatch before it was released, mind you]]), ''[[Film/StarTrekIntoDarkness Star Trek Into Darkness]]'' and "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS33E13TheNameOfTheDoctor The Name of the Doctor]]". Best summed up by [[https://twitter.com/eddievercetti/status/335849781849124865 this response]].
*** She also has done several twitter tirades about ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}' and its fanbase. When people responded, she tweeted a sarcastic comment of [[StrawFan "WHY CAN'T YOU JUST HAVE LITERALLY ZERO STANDARDS OR TASTE"]].
** ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' fans got quite upset with her when she compared Korra to Anakin Skywalker to the ''Franchise/StarWars'' prequels and acted like you were just kidding yourself if you thought she was a heroic person. And then she called her a "cunt" the next week, which got even worse backlash.
