YMMV / The Otaku Ascended

  • Broken Base: Some like their pony-related vidoes. Others, don't, and wish they'd concentrate more of their anime reviews.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: They both expressed disappointment that The Nostalgia Critic never reviewed Felix the Cat: The Movie. Lo and behold, a few months later, he did.
  • Hype Backlash: They're one of the only reviewers to say anything negative about Rescue from Midnight Castle, because they weren't fond of Tirac being a Flat Character of a villain who acts For the Evulz.
  • The Scrappy: After season 3 of Friendship Is Magic, they now consider Chad Rocco to be the embodiment of everything wrong with the current brony fandom, with his continuing to watch a show he hates just so he can whine about it, and stooping to personal insults about people who still like the show.
  • So Bad, It's Good: How some view them. To quote one user comment on Equestria Daily:
    "They are awful... no chemistry, no timing... and yet, I find this absolutely hilarious! Keep it coming!!!!"
