Web Video: JesuOtaku

"On the technical side..."

Hope Chapman, aka JesuOtaku, is by far one of the most successful and analytical of the former DesuDesBrigade, formerly a member of That Guy with the Glasses.

She produces a review segment simply entitled "The JesuOtaku Anime Review". Her review approach is very analytical, using a four-star 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 Fruits Basket, every Wednesday throughout summer 2011 (and which can be found here if you're interested). She is notable for her large amount of shows:

Since joining That Guy with the Glasses, she gained a great degree of success previously unseen. Despite efforts to keep the 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 here on Blip.tv, here on That Guy with the Glasses, and here on Twitter. She also has a live stream, here and she can be found here on Formspring. Additionally, she has also often appeared on Nash's long running Radio Dead Air internet radio show, which can be found 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, here.

In January 2013, Hope announced that she'd be part of an adaptation of Katawa Shoujo, named Katawa Seiyu being released on YouTube. The trailer is here. JO herself has recorded auditions for several characters, which can be listened to here. She has been cast as the voice of Rin Tezuka.

Sadly, in October 2014, she has decided to call it quits due to decreasing Ad revenue on blip and her new job at Anime News Network, leaving any still-running series abandoned. She is currently the head of Pango Dango Games, who are developing their first visual novel, Lovely Little Thieves, due for release later in 2015.
