Hope Chapman, aka Jesu Otaku, is by far the most successful and analytical of the former Desu Des Brigade, currently a member of That Guy With The Glasses.

She produces a review segment simply entitled "The JesuOtaku Anime Review". Her review approach is very analytical, using a four-star rating system. She tries to be as objective as possible and may give high scores to shows that she doesn't personally like. She also produced her "summer project", an audio drama adaptation of Fruits Basket, every Wednesday throughout summer 2011 (and which can be found here if you're interested). She is notable for her large amount of shows:

Since joining That Guy With The Glasses, she gained a great degree of success previously unseen. Despite efforts to keep the Desu Des Brigade alive, she made the decision to officially leave the Brigade. This news, however, led to the Brigade's outright breakup.

Her videos can be found here on, here on That Guy With The Glasses, and here on Twitter. She also has a live stream, here. Additionally, she also often appears on Nash's long running Radio Dead Air internet radio show, which can be found here.

For an in-progress list of things JO has reviewed, see the recap page.

Jesu Otaku provides examples of the following tropes:

 "Kyoya, you're not quite dressed for the occasion; you have to take your pants off too!"

"The correct response to this situation would be to grab his shoulders, throw him on the bed and ride him like a stallion!"

  Hello, and welcome to the JesuOtaku Anime Review. Your mission today is to sit right where you are and listen to me talk about vampires in a very baloney British accent. May God and Her Majesty be with you. Amen.

  JesuOtaku: By God, if I can't make a good impression, I might as well make a lasting one!

  Aow! It's August!

  • Readings Blew Up the Scale: JO's "Metafiction meter" blows up at least twice during her review of Digimon Tamers.
  • Real Women Never Wear Dresses: The Mahoromatic review starts with her playing a maid, before she gives it up and complains "I'm in a dress. I'm wearing make-up. I hate all of you."
  • Running Gag: Her gripes about GONZO and their varying production values.
    • From her live stream, Boyd being blamed when something crashes or doesn't work properly on the stream.
    • From her playthrough of Path of Radiance, the silly voices she uses for characters.
    • Also from her stream, the people in the chat shouting "NAIL!" whenever Soren, who has the voice of Super Kami Guru, appears. It has gotten to the point where JO tells them early on to get it out of their system.
  • Say My Name: JO at the end of the Koi Kaze review, upon realizing who sent her Master of Martial Hearts.


  • Schedule Slip: JO's "Digimon Month", a month of reviews of the first five seasons of Digimon was intended to encompass August 2010. The Digimon Adventure review finally came out on August 20th (with part 2 only half-done until about a week later). It then took until November 6th for the first part of Digimon Adventure 02 to be released, followed by parts 2 and 3 on the 23rd (and part 2 half-done until the 28th). Following 02, her weekly anime review continued for the first time since July, with the fate of rest of the Digimon reviews left uncertain.
    • She recently stated on her new Formspring account that they will continue, but they'll come as they're done, like Linkara's History of Power Rangers.
    • Her "Month of Mayazaki" didn't quite fit in just one month, probably because she was moving IRL at the time.
  • Shoo Out the Clowns: JO forwent her usual "Snark Text" subtitles during her Now and Then Here and There review for fear of damning her eternal soul by making fun of something so depressing.
  • The Smart Girl: For the Desu Des Brigade.
  • Something Else Also Rises: In JO's review for Chobits, she gave it X "Good Mornings" with appropriate gestures.
  • Squee: Not herself, but her snarktitles don't pass the chance in the Ouran High School Host Club review.
  • Stupid Sexy Flanders:

 "Seriously I'm straight but that gurl is dead sexy."

"Wow. It's times like this I wish I could whistle. You could stop traffic with a body like that." (in addressing Elizabeth from Trigun)

  • Tomboy: From the way she dresses to the shows she likes, JO is pretty masculine.
    • She makes it crystal clear in the start of her Mahoromatic review that dolling herself up is not a hobby of hers.
  • Top Ten List: Top X Lists, mostly. Top 20 Villains, Top 15 Dubbed Anime Themes, Top 15 Stupidest Izzyisms, Top 15 Nerd Jokes in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Top 10 Cowboy Bebop episodes, Top 20 openings of 2010, and her top 25 favorite anime.
    • The Top 20 openings is intended to be an annual project. She did one for 2011 as well.
  • Turn the Other Cheek: She actually did this at the end of her review of Eiken, much to Bennett the Sage 's disappointment.
  • Wall Bang: Does this before reviewing Eiken.
  • What Do You Mean It's for Kids?: Invoked: When commenting on the scenes that didn't get edited out of the Toonami showing of Outlaw Star, she snarks "Toonami: Women abuse...for kids! :D"
  • Who Names Their Kid "Dude"?: Asked this via snarktitles in regards to Jacuzzi Splot ("No really, WHAT were his parents on?")
  • Your Mom: In the snark text captions of her Outlaw Star review, when comparing the plot structure to a round robin story-telling game:

 "I went to the store and saw..."

"Your mom! OOH!"

"Come on, Brad, can we get through ONE ROUND!?"

"That's what your MOM said last night! OOH!"
