FtMs don't really get to ride the troon train to riches. That's for dudes who were born with cocks, whether or not they even bother cutting them off.
As usual no one gives a crap about women, even when they try to turn themselves into men. If she tried to do some kind of project about her life as a FtM troon, I can only imagine how insignificant of an audience that would find.

Nobody likes a phony.

Hope is doing the Spoony thing. Average to below average knowledge of the subject, but good if not great presenter. She did put a spotlight on her, but like her chain-me-in-the-basement soulmate, she destroyed herself in the process. Her greed for the unlimited power in Otaku/Nerd community left her in the dust.

She was never satisfied with a position given to her, she always wanted more. Even getting a higher position in ANN wasn't going to satisfy her lust, she trooned, went to Crunchyroll (wouldn't be surprised if Zac didn't pull some strings for that to happen). Good thing Crunchyroll isn't made of easy manipulative morons. Like a Troon Icarus, she went down.

And funny thing is, I think she is self aware of everything happening to her. That's why she has so many pets. She needs some kind of therapeutical shit to keep herself in check. Wouldn't be surprised if she doesn't talk to them on daily basis.

He just reused an old channel he made while still at TGWTG. The account had 22k subs in 2014 too

So, riding on the former glory. Too bad her trooning didn't transition well in terms of views. Imagine some old subscriber (not following her on social media) who got notified that the new video is up, only to see an autistical troon face in the thumbnail.

She did radio drama during her TGWTG days. Even that shit was wayyy niche, but she didn't care. In her head she thinks she deserves a Biopic. I would watch it, even in empty Theater, but only if Kevin Spacey plays JewWario. Now that would be a perfect casting.

Please tell me they're talking about this somewhere? I'm thrilled JesuOtaku is obscure even by TGWTG cast off standards, but its a shame there's not much chatter about what amounts to a massive left hook to what's left of thier credibility.

JesuOtaku is average in terms of worst people on TGWTG. Her trooning just put her more in to obscurity. Relationship with Shadowman Todd will bring her back. But hey, if relationship with Todd doesn't work out, Uncle Linky will patiently wait his turn. Then she will be back, for sure.

It's well documented. Linky Like's the Girl Dick. Not the Boy Pussy. Hanging out with a FtM might make people think he's gay.

It's not a question of if, but when. They've shown a willingness to throw people overboard before.
I'm pretty sure he can make an exception. Hope can persuade people as it is well documented.
Hope is a villain from Law & Order: SVU at this point.

Her problem is she thought she was better than she actually was. Like a lot of Channel Autism types she got a lot of traction and views from people that went to the site, watched whomever and then checked her out like they did everybody else. In some ways that was the highlight of her career. And now she, and everybody else, is trying to play catch up to regain what were their glory days.

The problem is none of them have brought anything new to the table. They're not insightful. They're not entertaining. They've got nothing to offer and yet they still act like they did 10 years ago when they started off. It's not going to happen. The internet is full of people doing reviews. Why would any of them be any different?

Yeah, AngryJoe and Linsey are the only ones, outside of Doug who are still riding high. Rest of them are barely making ends meet. Hopes blip on the radar is long gone, she is in hot waters, but her social media presence, lack of self-awareness are ballooning her already large ego, so she thinks that she still has a shot.

FilmBrain, Dena Natali and LotusPrince are good example of this. They are still making pointless shit, thinking that views will magickly appear as long as they keep making videos. Change is hard, adapting is crucial, but then again, they got more important things to focus on, like CTC.

Zac's sister's blog was linked here recently. You realize seeing these posts that Zac's family didn't really have a high opinion about Hope.

Yet Hope retorted this about Zac on their Visual Novel Kickstarter page that was last updated back in 2018 with no release date as of yet.

The blog also went into detail about Zac's alcholoism. It was so bad that this is what his water heater looked like.

He had to know that it was easier to pay Hope off every month than to risk her pulling a Zoe Quinn, and turning the whole clickbait mafia against him. He should have just let her do it. They're all miserable, horrible people. It's hard to even blame Hope, he was possibly an even bigger groupthink cunt. After current year arrived, everyone our age got a good long look at what a cult of clueless, joyless assholes the big blog cabal people are, all you have to do is step back, stop replying to them, and say IRL obligations keep you away from social media. Just stop virtue signaling.

From my experience of knowing him since ANN's starting days, it couldn't have happened to a better person. Zac was the biggest gatekeeper of anime fan culture since the heyday of the anime boom during the early 2000s, from making fun of and actively discouraging anime fans from trying to make their own anime and manga grassroots stuff after being inspired by what wonders actually creative unrestrained animation and comics brought States side, was the greatest and earliest male feminist preaching on about how anime women are "repressed" and are nothing but "1950s housewives", and actively rallied to hate on the cute and kawaiisa of anime and manga that was made more pronounced in the late 2000s because he couldn't look cool with his hobbies and ego masturbate to it. This doesn't even include he actively promoted some of the worst fans of anime on Anime News Network, being Colony Drop, a bunch of entitled hipster consoom culture fags eager to whine and bitch like a bunch of embarrassing banshee fags to Japan about they wanted anime "their way", and cancelled a manga by merely calling it child porn on his scumfucky "totally not clause violating" Q&A editorial.

Knowing he fucking drank himself to death while his guilt and shame turned into its own monsters and ate him from the inside out, got his cats eating his fucking corpse and tearing his face off, got golddug and fucked up the ass by his own entitled fatheaded first world male feminist savior complex, as well as being natural female repellent by being a smug and hubris filled fat fuck hobby tosser, I say: good. It honestly could not have happened to a better person. These fuckers were predestined to become virtuesignaling spoiled faggotasses. Fuck them, and fuck Zac. He was a fucking leech who sucked the joy out of everything, much like how his husband is a fucking leech.

All this talk about who the worst Channel Awesome people were got me thinking: Who are some of the best?

When I say the best and the worst, I have 2 different aspect of that: content creation (how often a month and how well made it is) and how does content creator behave to the audience who is following that content creator.

In terms of Hope, I would say it like this: great presentation, but also lots of excuses and side project at the same time. Also, she likes to argue a lot with her audience and relies on whitenights to save her when she is "attacked by the mean people", just because she was provoking them in the first place. Manipulation is also a factor, as she likes to scam people for the money as well.

In terms of the best, during TGWTG I liked Linkaras work and on Spoony forums he was friendly enough. Doug, Phelous, Cinema Snob and Angry Joe we also among hardworking and overall good natured. Rest were medium, even ArmzGirl was making weekly content at that era and she was friendly as well.

At that time I strongly disliked That dude with the Suede (for bad content and leaving the site for a while), Luke Mochrie (son of the famous father and barely watchable at best), Sad Panda (fail at being funny and he loved to argue on social media and in the comments), Blockbuster Buster (do I need to say?), Bennet the Sage (He was alright for video game review, but once he transition to Bad Anime Critic it showed just how unfunny and forceful he really was).

Now a days, I would say that Doug and Brad are still holding up, Todd managed to improve overall, Phelous is still watchable. Most others don't know its time to quit and move on. Patreon, social media presence and CTC is what keeps their hopes high and ego in check.

My opinions of these people:
--Brad: Still watch Snob episodes every week. Kinda miss the days when he actually recorded them in his actual living room.
--Doug: My viewing is usually just the commercial special every November.
--Todd: The dude spent almost 45 minutes reviewing the Mission Earth album. Damn good stuff. Can't get enough of him.
--Phelan: Yeah, still watchable, but I've noticed he's starting to go downhill a bit.
--Linkara: Still a fan, but getting a bit burned out over the storylines.
--Joe: Still brings the venom every time.
--Bennett: In my opinion, he can be hit or miss. His Barefoot Gen review actually moved me to tears.
--Suede/Panda/Luke: Don't really remember them, tbh.
--Marzgurl: Can't stand her anymore.
--Hope/Jacob: Agree with you for the most part.

Doug I grew out of years ago.

Brad I still watch fairly frequently

Never really got into Phelous but some of his old horror movie reviews are alright

Sage is ok in small doses

I liked Lindsey before she got hyper woke

Spoony’s old videos (up to about his Ultima retrospective) I still enjoy

Never cared for or liked anyone else. Linkara I found obnoxious and hated his voice. Joe seemed too much like a try hard even by CA standards. Hope especially irritated me from the get go

Lordkat used to be a regular here, until a few years ago. He had a lot to share about TGWTG, until KickVic/I Stand With Vic Mignogna came about and he was constantly asked questions about Hope Chapman, which got him somewhat unwanted attention for that time he fucking brought her down to the ground and broke all of the pegs about her on his livestreams during Change The Channel.

It's also very subjective, but I've been around, let's just say, as a longtime lurker. Dude was awesome for fucking calling out Spoony and Hope, obviously, but he also was an expert on computer tech, enjoyed video games, did a livestream, and while he didn't exactly make that many waves, he had more work ethic and celebrity world savvy than most on TGWTG. There were things I disagreed with him on, and he did have his fair share of scandals and incidents, but that's all just water under the bridge.

For respect of his privacy and his new path he's taken in life, he's seen a shrink and has left both his niche on the internet and New York City into being a productive member of society. No further questions about where he is today will be accepted at this time. Thank you for understanding.

There are also some who left TGWTG before Change The Channel and the 19K USD Grift who were pretty cool but left for greener pastures.

Brad is still doing his thing and I will watch the new Snob episode every Monday.
Phelous is still watchable even if he strays too hard in to Dingo Cartoons and Bootleg Zones. So long as he doesn't do more crossovers with Allison.
Todd in the Shadows I can still watch and part of that is because he does actual research into the songs, the history and what led up to that band releasing their big hit.
Guru Larry because he's a funny bloke and he's still on the site because he thinks it's funny.
And Doug when he does his skitless reviews of whatever. While I don't seek these things out if I happen on them I'll watch them. They tend to be hit and miss. Any review that has skits however gets turned off.

As for others I liked Sage in a kind of "zero calorie background noise" way. He's no insightful and often times will deliberately paint an anime in a specific way to match the narrative he's pushing.
Spoony was great before he went downhill and lost his will to live. I, like a lot of people, wanted the old Spoony back but sadly we're never getting him.
Lindsay was good before she went woke and became everybody's favorite alcoholic wine aunt.
And finally Linkara when he first started at least spoke of the comics and had some insight. Now he just riffs them very badly.

As far as I'm aware I never really watched anybody else there on the site with any regularity.

EDIT: Just realized I left Brandon Tenold off the list which is a shame. He was on the site for a short while but I like his style and the fact he's a sarcastic bastard who doesn't go in for skits.
