    "I'm gonna be upfront here and say that I am probably a horrible person for enjoying these shorts a bit too much. Kudos to them for being able to make jokes about things that you shouldn't make fun of, yet somehow still make it funny. this is probably the best animation channel for the absolute worst kind of humor xD"

    "I love Dom's vids. They are easily relatable, especially for Asian-Americans like myself, and they're really funny. Well, at least when they're supposed to be *sheds tear during "Break-ups" series*"

    "this is an artist i feel doesn't get enough traction. she doesn't have the flashiest art style out there and it may not be to everyone's taste unless you're into macabre like i am. but her use of music to tell a story is impresive! i also love how the characters she's created grow with each chapter"

    "many people will say that isn't uncommon to find a youtuber you can relate to, but there are few youtubers out there who share their deep problems for the sake of awareness. Jaiden is one of those. as an introvert, i love how her videos can bring to light some of these issues, even if it is in a light-hearted animated format."

    "so i originally stumbled upon rebecca after her video collab with tomska and jaiden. i then left with the thought of "WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN AND WHY HAVE I ONLY HEARD ABOUT YOU NOW?!" seriously, her animations are smooth and her storytelling is so engaging. the only reason i give her a 4 is because her videos only come out once every few months, making me wish i could watch more :("

    "mike inel. never has a man been able to make me both laugh, die of diabetes, and cry in a span of 3 minutes. "Draw with Me" is so good, and it's what lead me to his channel. that and his work on Katawa Shoujo. what made me stay is his "What if x was an anime" series because he puts effort into his character designs. the only reason i can't fully recommend him is that it is an anime style and not many people may enjoy that"
