Web Video: The Otaku Ascended
Stupidity ahoy!
—Their channel's slogan

Tsuki and the Video Master. They're a pair of nerds that review anime and episodes of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic on YouTube. They're also been known to do web commentaries they call "Let's Watch" for the latter, as well as episodes of the Mega Man cartoon, anime OVAs, Felix the Cat: The Movie, My Little Pony The Movie, and Rainbow Brite: The Movie. They've also been known to run live stream for many varied reasons, whether to stream anime, wrestling, or video games.

Their usual style is Vlog Series, but they have been known to veer into (partially) scripted Video Review Show territory as well. Overall, the series is peppered with full-on silliness, nerdy references, nerdy jokes, and well...nerdy everything. While their show has never been listed among the very best, they do possess their own unique charm that keep many viewers coming back.

The FIM fandom has sometimes likened them to Snips and Snails from that series. Whether you see any resemblance or not is entirely up to you.

At the very least, anyone looking for a break from the normal Accentuate the Negative-style reviewer may find how positive these two guys can be very refreshing.

The Otaku Ascended provides examples of:

  • Actually Pretty Funny and Actually Pretty Awesome:
    • They will admit it when an intended moment of humor actually works in even the worst works they review or Let's Watch.
    • They'll also point out moments intended to be awesome in otherwise lackluster works that are actually awesome.
  • Alternate DVD Commentary: Their Let's Watches.
  • And Starring: Brony Comms, whenever they crossover with them. They've done this twice, once for the FIM episode, Best Night Ever and for a Sonic the Hedgehog OVA, though that was just Shadrow.
  • Author Appeal: Tons. For one thing, My Little Pony practically took over the show at one point because the creators just got that distracted by it.
  • Bad Bad Acting: Without even trying!
  • Beauty Equals Goodness: No, this has not escaped their notice, and they point it out anytime they see it, such as in FIM where villains will be designed ugly.
  • Berserk Button: The Video Master is not a fan of the background pony known as "Daisy"
    • Photo Finish makes his hatred for Daisy look like a crush.
  • Book Ends: They begin and end each video with this introduction:
"I'm Tsuki."
"I'm the Video Master."

"Hi, I'm Tsuki.""I'm the Video Master."
