The chick's smart. Like, seriously. Unlike the many other Caustic Critics
out there, she keeps a calm and respectful, almost adorable, concise analysis of the animes she reviews. Oh no, JO doesn't resort to cheap slapstick or meaningless rage- she keeps it pretty classy. And she doesn't even indulge in pretentious snobbery- in fact, JO usually keeps the reviews light-hearted and silly enough to make you feel comfortable. She can take even the most high-browed of concepts and break them down so even the most LCD-based layman can comprehend. And even though a lot of her reviews can get pretty long, it's worth the time to listen to what she has to say. It's almost like the Nostalgia Chick's style of reviewing, except JO has less on tropes and more on clinical reasoning.
JO is entertaining, she has well-written sketches, she obviously knows what she's talking about, and her analysis is usually objective enough to make you take her seriously. Her perspective on things is nice and interesting, and yet it isn't so far out there that you feel alienated.
But as awesome as she is, just don't listen to her VLO Gs
. I'm sorry, but to me, they seem to plod and on and on...I think I even looped it once just so it could help me get to sleep...but darn, if anyone knows how to make a reasonable, intellectual review, it's definitely Jesu Otaku.
JO, I LOVE YOU.
