  • Big Name Fan: Obviously of K-On!, but also one of the biggest advocates for Psycho-Pass, Berserknote , Shirobako, Gintama, Hunter × Hunter, YuYu Hakusho, Ghost in the Shell, Log Horizon, and most works by Hiroyuki Imaishi.
  • Colbert Bump:
    • Whenever he invites an anime YouTuber on to the Weebcast, that person usually sees a significant increase in subscribers. In particular he helped give on to Geoff Thew of Mother's Basement and Subsonic Sparkle.

    • Has admitted that this is what he aims to do with his videos. Digi has admitted that he's always been interested in more obscure media and what appeals to his personal tastes. As such he will usually push his viewers to watch an anime not a lot of people care about that he loves or YouTubers he really likes that don't get that much attention.
    • In his controversial rant on anime YouTubers he was able to give one to his favorites such as Best Guy Ever, Mumkey Jones, My Japanese Animes, Subsonic Sparkle, etc. noting that everyone he told his viewers to check out gained a 1,000 subscriber boost.
    • After he mentioned Planet With in his video Why Crunchyroll is Ineffective Anime Support, some of his viewers became interested in it.
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes:
    • After Zankyou no Terror finished airing he made a video expressing his disappointment in the show. However the video stirred a lot of controversy from the large fanbase the show generated as well as That Anime Snob and his fans who called out Digi for expecting the show to be good early on. This video no longer appears on his channel though it is unlisted.

    • Those who give him a certain amount per video on Patreon have access to a Google Drive that contains video files for every single video that he never uploaded to YouTube.
    • Usually tries to prevent this from happening as he has a Vimeo account where he'll upload backups of his videos in case he gets into copyright trouble.
  • Promoted Fanboy:
    • His inspiration for making a living off of his videos came from JonTron.
    • He's commented a few times on Anthony Fantano's videos, at least cementing himself as a fan. He later on got to work with Fantano on his review of BABYMETAL's self titled and even got interviewed on Fantano's podcast.
  • Screwed by the Lawyers: Every now and then one of his videos will be taken down due to a copyright claim but none of his videos have ever been permanently removed due to copyright and he'll usually fight to get them back up. Though it's more of Google's copyright robots than lawyers persay.

  • Sleeper Hit: The Pleeb and the Weeb was simply something he launched with Endless Jess for fun during Radcon 2016. However when he told his fans he'd make it into a full series if it was successful in Kickstarter, the results certainly weren't what he expected. The Kickstarter exceeded its goal in only a few days and as of right now all of the stretch goals have been reached right now as well.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • Was going to host a panel on Hiroyuki Imaishi at Otakon 2015 but he unfortunately couldn't get his panel into the convention's programming.
    • Actually wanted to do an analysis video on Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann but after one of his affiliates Best Guy Ever made an analysis he dropped the idea altogether.
    • Digi was actually looking to make another long video series after The Asterisk War Sucks. In contrast to The Asterisk War he wanted to do a series on a show that was either mediocre or a show he really liked. Initially ERASED was considered but since Digi hated it more than he thought he would he felt doing another series on a A-1 Pictures show would have been redundant. His next consideration was Myriad Colors Phantom World since it was another mediocre show airing at the time and Digi wanted to toss a curveball by talking about a Kyoto Animation show since many of his fans believe that he loves the studio. However his coverage of Phantom World ended up being a short video.
    • Wanted to making an analysis comparing Fullmetal Alchemist 2003, Fullmetal Alchemist, and Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. However since he doesn't have any plans on revisiting the 2003 anime, he decided against the idea.
    • Was originally going to do another episode of Random Ass Recommendations on his After Dark channel but ended up cancelling the series altogether. Remnants from the second episode are available to his Patrons however.
    • Had planned to do a video on Steins;Gate after his No Game No Life analysis, because of similar plot and character elements. The idea was to create a two-parter, but after he realised he had made most of his points in the first video and that video underperformed, he decided not to.
