• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

 Jacob 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.

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

Despite efforts to keep the Desu Des Brigade alive, he made the decision to officially leave the Brigade. This news, however, led to the Brigade's outright breakup.

He also has a live stream, here. Additionally, he also often appears on Nash's long running Radio Dead Air internet radio show, which can be found here.

Jesu Otaku provides examples of the following tropes:


  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 his review of Digimon Tamers.
  • Running Gag: His gripes about GONZO and their varying production values.
    • From his live stream, Boyd being blamed when something crashes or doesn't work properly on the stream.
    • From his playthrough of Path of Radiance, the silly voices he uses for characters.
    • Also from his 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 him 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, his weekly anime review continued for the first time since July, with the fate of rest of the Digimon reviews left uncertain.
    • He recently stated on his new Formspring account that they will continue, but they'll come as they're done, like Linkara's History of Power Rangers.
    • His "Month of Mayazaki" didn't quite fit in just one month, probably because he 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 his eternal soul by making fun of something so depressing.
  • The Smart Guy: For the Desu Des Brigade.
  • Squee: Not himself, but his snarktitles don't pass the chance in the Ouran High School Host Club review.
  • 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. He did one for 2011 as well.
  • Turn the Other Cheek: He actually did this at the end of his review of Eiken, much to Bennett the Sage's disappointment.
  • Wall Bang: Does this before reviewing Eiken.
  • Who Names Their Kid "Dude"?: Asked this via snarktitles in regards to Jacuzzi Splot ("No really, WHAT were his parents on?")
