Whether you were a little dude or a little chick, this song made you want to bench press the sofa, eat the entire box of frosted flakes including the box and Kamehameha your older siblings into OBLIVION for sleeping in or your younger siblings for... existing, pretty much, and if your parents had anything to say about it, well they could shut up and go back to bed because this was DRAGON BALL Z!!
She's chewing almost as much scenery as the DBZ intro!
Why do the girls just give up singing when they get to Sailor Jupiter? Did the ice cream truck pass by outside while they were recording or something?
"Sailor Venus! Sailor Mars! Sailor Mercury! Sailor Jupiter... [ice cream truck music is heard in the background] Can I have a quarter?
Her Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking moment in her Most Deliciously Evil Anime Villains countdown, while talking about Frieza. Saying that his crimes, "include blowing up at least two planets, exterminating countless races including the strongest of all, the Saiyans, killing countless more Nameks causing their elder to die of plain old grief, back to back in relishing the torturous deaths of numerous lead characters... and making bad jokes... (well okay. He actually has a pretty good sense of humor.) and under suspicion of batting for some other team I... really... don't wanna know about."
Then after a brief clip of Frieza "caressing them," she showed us this image.◊
And before that, she and her friends perform their combined Magical Girl attack... which summons the tree. JO tempts fate by asking if it has magic powers. The tree then lights up and starts playing "I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas." Cue Face Palm from JO.
The review of Master of Martial Hearts picking up where we left off...though after 12 seconds JO interrupts and says Sage has been smiling like that for the entire time between the two reviews (3 weeks).
The transition between Sage convincing her to watch the last episode and her reaction? A cheerful text screen, backed by the Green Acres theme: "And so! 30 minutes later..."
JO's sudden realization of hope (pun not intended), unintentionally sending Sage into a sudden depression. Doubles as a Crowning Moment of Heartwarming when we see her playing with the dog of one of her roommates.
The end of that review, with JO quickly summarizing the last 20 minutes of the film in an extremely over-enthusiastic manner while Oancitizen just keeps going "WHAT?!" at basically every single detail of it.
It's even funnier when it comes after Oancitizen finally managing a detailed analysis of the movie and possibly gaining a newfound respect for the medium. By the time Utena turns into a car, all that goes right out the window.
Akio's "death". That is all.
Also, the butterflies and rainbows that appear in front of Jesu and Oan whenever Akio leaps over the front of the car.
"And this is why people really don't like this movie." "I have entirely different reasons for not liking it." "Quiet you."
That scene with the cow and elephants. Or rather, JO's gleeful maniac grin before and after it, and how Kyle reacts to the scene.
From the commentary on the review:
Oan: The first screening was just a blur. I just remember "blah blah blah lesbianism, blah blah blah cars."
"So that's the best review I can give to this film. Kyle?" "Piss." "Okay, Thank you very much."
From her Digimon Tamers retrospective, describing the battle against Vikaralamon as everything going "bloody-hoo crazy!"
Also, trying to keep OF COURSE! out of the video, only to give in with an annoyed "You people and your memes." She reacts with annoyance when the gag returns.
Her various reactions/video reactions to the various ways that Tamers twists the many basic mythos elements.
The Metafiction Meter! It blows up first when Takato puts on goggles in order to accord with the TV show in a strange meta twist. The second time is when Ryo shows up, leading to a second self-destruct. "I just fixed it, You Bastard!"
JO giving a scenario that's "Good News, Bad News" in hindsight; something new that Hypnos has managed something that means that they can see what the D-Reaper sees. The bad news? This happens to be able to see the Digidestined while they are Bio-Merged with their partners, and, well, as JO and her snarktitles put it:
JO: This means the whole of Japan can see you BUTT NAKED TAKATO!
Snarktitles: A dramatic moment that turns REALLY EMBARRASSING when you think about it more XD
JO: Which Pokemon movies? Critic: [Dramatic pointing] AAALLL OF THEEMMM!!! JO: Aaah!
JO decides she someone more knowledgeable, and phones MarzGurl, who immediately starts listing every available anime in alphabetic order and only stopping to catch a breath when JO to her returns a few clips later, midway through "O."
Which convinces her she needs someone a little less knowledgeable than that:
Maven of the Eventide's... got nothing. She just wanted to know if there were vampire anime. And when she learns there's plenty, she rushes away to dive into it, leaving JO hanging.
At the end, when Nash comes up with something to recommend, JO's already gone.
The Witchblade review starts with JO remembering she has a job interview but has no clean laundry other than a Black Lantern shirt. What does she do, you may ask? She goes absolutely naked, with a picture of a cat censoring her.
JO: My god, if I can't make a good impression, at least I'll make a lasting one!
A scene with Masane jumping out of a helicopter and stumbling to the ground is accompanied by "And her kneecaps split off and flew twenty feet!".
While JO talks about the Gainaxing, a caption warns one of the characters "Protect yourself, man! They're ALIVE!"
To see if fans of the original American comic would like it, "I have procured a casual fan of the comic [Nash], currently in a state of cookie-induced calm." (It doesn't last.)
And then there's the Running Gag of Boyd (himself given a 90's Kid voice) being blamed for game crashes and other problems with the stream.
The silly names given to weapons she forges. Including but not limited to: a lance named Betty Crock, a wind magic tome named The Happening, an axe named And My Axe!, a bow named Ass Blaster, a fire magic book named Thermite, and a spear named Dragonfucker.
The beginning of her Paradise Kiss review has her modeling in a fashion show, with her cats as the judges.
The end of her vlog about The Avengers, where one of the cats jumps into frame and just... stays there while JO harps at it. Made all the better by the fact that it's not blocking her, and the camera's somehow focusing on both her and it so that a casual glance would lead one to assume it was a Mega Neko out of nowhere.
She starts off her Pom Poko retrospective by getting one thing out of the way: Magical. Raccoon. Scrotum.
The Fruits Basket Radio Drama extras. It starts off with the narrator (in-show, a soothing, welcome male voice) shouting at the listener while the snarktitles keep making bout faces.
Her having to black-box Todd's face, with the accompanying subtitles "Dammit, Todd."
Liam (the voice actor for Hatsuharu in the show) doing a fandub edition of "Call Me Maybe" as Haru to go along with the then-most recent radio drama episodes.
During the Howl's Moving Castle review, she mentions that this was the first appearance of Christian Bale's Batman voice. She then overlays Howl's "I see no point in living if I can't be beautiful" line over a scene from Batman Begins.
Made better by how the scene actually ends with Batman taking a dramatic dive.
A few moments in her Tales from Earthsea retrospective.
Her suggesting of a drinking game over Arren's narmy, mopey expressions followed by her ranting commentary text on Arren's clips.
Noting that the scar on the main girl only looks as if she slept on a keyboard.
On that note, the light scar leads her to remind the viewer of another failed fantasy adaptation and give us some time to comprehend that yes... Ghibli made its own The Last Airbender.
She's restrained from using red snarktitles throughout the Ghibli retrospective, but in this case they came back with a vengeance.
Her Highschool of the Dead review opens up to JO sitting down, saying how awesome it was to hang out with the Channel Awesome crew and make a movie with them. Then she goes on to say how she's so surprised at an event that supposedly happens in the aforementioned movie, but it's censored with a bleep effect and a black bar over her mouth that says "nope".
The face of despair she gets when she sees Sage, the very image of the ;A; emoticon.
The Rule of Three gag that she runs from Sage to the rooms of Linkara, Angry Joe, and MarzGurl, who are happy to take her in, only for her to look away for a second and see that Sage has taken their place and wearing their clothes. The third time she's seen running, she yells in an exhausted and even slightly bored voice.
When JesuOtaku asks Sage what he's done with the three. He states that he's done nothing. Cut to them in the hotel lobby playing a card game.
At the end of the video when JO becomes the next Sage, we have her hammyEvil Laugh. And her walking to the lobby offering to play a game with the three. When they ask her what she wants to play, she holds up something off-screen, causing the three to make a ;A; face and scream in terror.
Pretty much every moment that Angry Joe is onscreen.
Her Tom Cruise imitation in "Hollywood Drive: Concerning Hobbits."
This snippet from "Hollywood Drive: Unchained Misery:"
"[As her hand rises] What sad, fun-hating individual doesn't love everything about Tarantino's work, and doesn't find him to be the summital director of our age? [Pushes down arm] Stop that."
Her re-enactment of Jean Valjean's prologue reformation, which had her lip-synching to a sped-up version of the song. Also:
"Do you see the people's pores, sweating the sweat of sweaty men? It's in the movie of a Hooper who will not win Best Picture again!"
In the first DesuRattle, she reveals that her first episode of Fullmetal Alchemist was Night of theChimera's Cry, which she watched at midnight. Sleeping was not done that night. On the upside, it sold FMA as a quality series for her. She brings it up later in her Top 25 Favorite Anime List:
JO: My first episode was Night of the Chimera's Cry. That's right, the Nina Tucker story. And I watched this at midnight. In the dark. In the middle of nowhere.
From Anime Derby Summer 2013 part 1:
"Can't we have something that makes me feel good and warm and fuzzy inside?" *Gilligan Cut to Free!'s extremely good looking male protagonists*
Also her sarcastic paraphasing of the male fans' pearl-clutching:
"...with the male fandom insisting that Kyo Ani's 'high-end output' — Pfffft"
