YMMV: JesuOtaku

  • Base Breaker: 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.
  • Broken Base: As mentioned on To Boldly Flee's YMMV page, Hope's portrayal of Edward from Cowboy Bebop 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.
  • Critical Research Failure:
    • The Witchblade review. When listing off differences between the anime and comics (in voiceover form with Nash, a casual fan of the comics, 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 Masane is a temporary bearer, not the intended recipient of the Witchblade.
    • Her retrospectives on Digimon Adventure mentions that the series was meant to be only thirteen episodes, which has been long debunked in the Digimon fandom.
  • Creator's Pet: 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 Sucker Punch with Film Brain and Revolutionary Girl Utena with Kyle. Jesu throughout the Sucker Punch review physically abuses Film Brain (a rare case of Double Standard: Abuse, Female on Male 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 (The Nostalgia Critic frequently being bullied, Todd chasing after Lupa until To Boldly Flee, etc), this never happens to JO, which is highly glaring.
  • Crosses the Line Twice: The Penguin Lottery 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.
  • Dude, Not Funny!: Her abusing Film Brain in the Sucker Punch crossover counts for some sensitive souls. Several fans took note and complained that considering how TGWTG generally avoids the Double Standard: Abuse, Female on Male (Or just brings to mind harsh memories of being abused), the fight here was extremely one-sided.
  • Fan Hater: One of the causes of the general Broken Base around her.
  • Foe Yay: The thing between her and Bennett The Sage, even by TGWTG's standards and that's saying something.
  • He Panned It, Now He Sucks: Like any internet critic, she's had her share of this.
  • He Really Can Act: Well, she:
    • Her cameo in the Brows Held High review for 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 here.
    • The amount of characters' voices she can display during any of her Let's Plays, cornerstones of her Saturday stream session, is astounding.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
  • Nightmare Fuel: The intro to her Higurashi review. She says hello, brings out a cleaver and laughs like a demon.
