  • Colbert Bump:
    • Whenever she invites an anime YouTuber on to the Weebcast, that person usually sees a significant increase in subscribers. In particular she helped give one to Geoff Thew of Mother's Basement and Subsonic Sparkle.
    • Has admitted that this is what she aims to do with her videos. Digi has admitted that she's always been interested in more obscure media and what appeals to her personal tastes. As such she will usually push her viewers to watch an anime not a lot of people care about that she loves or YouTubers she really likes that don't get that much attention.

    • In her controversial rant on anime YouTubers she was able to give one to her favorites such as Best Guy Ever, Mumkey Jones, My Japanese Animes, Subsonic Sparkle, etc. noting that everyone she told her viewers to check out gained a 1,000 subscriber boost.
    • After she mentioned Planet With in her video Why Crunchyroll is Ineffective Anime Support, some of her viewers became interested in it.
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes:
    • After Zankyou no Terror finished airing she made a video expressing her 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 her fans who called out Digi for expecting the show to be good early on. This video no longer appears on her channel though it is unlisted.
    • Those who give her a certain amount per video on Patreon have access to a Google Drive that contains video files for every single video that she never uploaded to YouTube.

    • Usually tries to prevent this from happening as she has a Vimeo account where she'll upload backups of her videos in case she gets into copyright trouble.
    • On February 15, 2021, she announced that everything she had uploaded as Digi would delisted from her channel as part of her rebranding, and explicitly encouraged fans to circulate the tapes by giving them a three week grace period to download the videos.
  • Promoted Fangirl:
    • Her inspiration for making a living off of her videos came from JonTron.
    • She's commented a few times on Anthony Fantano's videos, at least cementing herself as a fan. She 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 her videos will be taken down due to a copyright claim but none of her videos have ever been permanently removed due to copyright and she'll usually fight to get them back up. Though it's more of Google's copyright robots than lawyers per se.

  • Sleeper Hit: The Pleeb and the Weeb was simply something she launched with Endless Jess for fun during Radcon 2016. However when she told her fans she'd make it into a full series if it was successful in Kickstarter, the results certainly weren't what she 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 she unfortunately couldn't get her panel into the convention's programming.
    • Actually wanted to do an analysis video on Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann but after one of her colleagues Best Guy Ever made an analysis, she dropped the idea because she thought that Best Guy Ever had covered everything important.
    • Digi was actually looking to make another long video series after The Asterisk War Sucks. In contrast to The Asterisk War, she wanted to do a series on a show that was either mediocre or a show she really liked. Initially ERASED was considered, but since Digi hated it more than she thought she would she felt doing another series on a A-1 Pictures show would have been redundant. Her 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 her fans believe that she loves the studio. However, her 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 she doesn't have any plans on revisiting the 2003 anime, she decided against the idea.
    • Was originally going to do another episode of Random Ass Recommendations on her After Dark channel but ended up cancelling the series altogether. Remnants from the second episode are available to her Patrons however.
    • Had planned to do a video on Steins;Gate after her No Game No Life analysis, because of similar plot and character elements. The idea was to create a two-parter, but after she realised she had made most of her points in the first video and that video underperformed, she decided not to.
