Jonathan Rozanski (born July 21, 1992YouTuber and reviewer from Chicopee, Massachusetts, best known for his "Animated Atrocities" and "Admirable Animation" series. He criticizes TV episodes he finds distasteful or unpleasant and praises TV episodes he enjoyed. Along with his reviewing channel, Mr. Enter also creates gaming videos.), better known online as TheMysteriousMrEnter, John Enter, Mr. Enter, and formerly Brovania, is an American
Mr. Enter was born and raised in Chicopee, Massachusetts. He has a younger brother and two younger sisters. He is diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome and autism spectrum disorder (ASD), a developmental disorder characterized by significant difficulties in social interaction and nonverbal communication, along with restricted and repetitive patterns of behavior and interests. He is also diagnosed with Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), a disorder marked by depressive moods occuring when there is less sunlight at certain times of the year. During his school years, he was subjected to bullying and was often a loner, due to his social awkwardness. He had an estranged father and, in addition, Mr. Enter was verbally abused by his mother and his step-father when he was growing up. Out of both parents, he only kept contact with his mother - refusing to let his biological dad or stepdad around in his life. His mother passed away on October 25, 2021 from a prescription overdose at the age of 45. Mr. Enter considers himself asexual and aromantic, which allows him a unique perspective on issues of romance and sex. This is evidently seen in videos such as his "Homer Badman" and "Peter-Assment" reviews where he possesses strong opinions on the subject.
Religiously, Mr. Enter is an agnostic atheist. In both his videos and DeviantArt journals, he states that his "lack of belief in the afterlife greatly informs a crippling fear he has of death and oblivion," which he has tried to cope with as a strong motivator for him in his creative and professional life.
Politically, Mr. Enter identifies as a centrist libertarian and subscribes to horseshoe theory. In several videos, he displays equal frustration towards both the left and the right and is known to write long journal entries on DeviantArt to that effect.
Mr. Enter is also a fan of art, as shown by the thumbnails of his videos being animated in Microsoft Paint. Even his profile picture is an MS Paint drawing of him, suggesting that he is camera shy.
In October 2021, Mr. Enter's mother and great-grandmother passed away in the same week. Two months later, he contracted COVID-19, though his case was mild.
Mr. Enter often reviews episodes of animated TV shows but also reviews internet sketches and animated movies. He has a prominent moral compass and takes the concept of right and wrong very seriously. He used to be a "brony" reviewer, and an active member of the "Brony Analyst Community" on YouTube. During that time, he made reviews on every episode from the first four seasons of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. In a DeviantArt journal in 2015 titled "Willpower and Life", Mr. Enter announced an end to his brony review videos due to losing interest in writing them.
For his Admirable Animations, he reviews episodes from TV shows such as Courage the Cowardly Dog, Gravity Falls, Teen Titans, Samurai Jack, and Powerpuff Girls. Mr.Enter prefers shows originating from the late 90's era, late 2000's era, and 2010's era, reportedly preferring children's animation due to a "personal distaste for gratuitous sex, violence, and toilet humor which has become prevalent in modern so-called 'adult' animation." Nonetheless, he holds high regard for adult animated works that do not heavily rely on these things, most notably Bojack Horseman, which has since become his personal favorite animated show of all time.
For Animated Atrocities, his list consists mainly of SpongeBob (though he did review episodes from the show for Admirable Animations) and Family Guy, but he's also included films such as Chicken Little, Tentacolino, Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends (regrettably, because he loves the show and Lauren Faust), Ed, Edd, n Eddy, Cars 2, and Teen Titans Go!. He also includes dropped pilots, including The Groovenains or Bubsy as Animated Atrocities.
Mr. Enter has also created videos outlining the "Top 10 worst episodes" of a show. His lists include but are not limited to: "Top 10 Worst Patrick's a Prick Episodes", "Top 10 Worst Squidward Torture Porns", and "Top 11 Worst Episodes Reviewed". In addition, he has a "Top 5 most hated cartoon episode list ever." This includes the SpongeBob episodes "One Coarse Meal" and "Seahorse Seashell Party". At the top of the list is "1 Night in Gottlieb" from Allen Gregory, an animated show that he used to consider the worst to have been ever made until he reviewed Breadwinners, Mr. Pickles, and Adult Party Cartoon.
On April 5, 2017, he returned to his gaming videos as Challenge Accepted!
He uploaded his first vlog shortly after his "Truth or Square" episode on August 10, 2014. He addressed many points about his personal life and the future of the channel. It can be found here.
Criticisms and Controversies
Despite his popularity, Mr. Enter is considered by many to be one of the most controversial reviewers on YouTube. Criticism has been directed mainly towards the style, substance, and methodology of his reviews. His editing has been criticized by some to be of "poor quality", where Mr. Enter repeatedly uses footage from the material he is reviewing, essentially using it in a loop. His "transitions from one argument to the next" has also been criticized as being too short or abrupt. Despite this, the editing has vastly improved ever since he hired an editor to edit his reviews. This improvement is first seen in his review of the episode "Shop Talk" from MLP Tales. The majority of criticism however, is directed towards the substance and methodology, or the manner in which he reviews the subject matter. Viewers note a "disturbing amount of genuine rage, and harshness in tone and inflection" delivered by Mr. Enter in his videos, where he often shows extreme anger towards an aspect of the show or film, such as its animation, its characters or its writers "devoid of comedic intent and entertainment." Many also criticize Mr. Enter as being too "officious, proselytizing or imposing", regarding the manner in which he takes personal issue with the TV show's or film's morals or messages. According to many, he presents conjecture and opinions as facts that should be considered as such - chastising those who would believe otherwise. Some viewers describe his points, criticisms, and arguments as "too nitpicky", where he sometimes focuses the entire review mainly on the flaws, potholes, and oversights of the show or film. In addition, some also take issue with the way Mr. Enter handles criticism, and dismisses it as a "result of Asperger's syndrome", according to Mr. Enter. Because of this, many see his ideas as plausible, but overall criticisms and arguments as "unfair, unjust or invalid."
He has been criticized by some YouTubers such as MacboyReducX, DrunkenPunk800, Clay Claymore, TVBRobotnikReturns, RebelTaxi, I Hate Everything and Emer Prevost, due to how "extremely serious he believes cartoons should be taken", and what some have perceived to be a "poor sense of humor." According to RebelTaxi in his 68th Pizza Party Podcast, he considers him a "nitpicker". According to I Hate Everything, he states that Enter is some "f**king bulls**t.
Although not directly stated, it’s also heavily implied that YouTube Poop veteran EmpLemon, dislikes Enter and his content (for example, in EmpLemon’s YouTube Is on a Downward Spiral video, Enter makes a brief appearance, and very recently, he made a video essay parody, mimicking the review community, although EmpLemon claims the video wasn’t even targeted towards Enter).
On March 14th, 2014, Mr. Enter uploaded his 41st Animated Atrocities review. In it, he reviews the SpongeBob episode "Pet Sitter Pat", an episode written by Casey Alexander. In the video, he shows screenshots of tweets made by Casey on Twitter. In them, he states that he was actually fond of "A Pal For Gary". In response to this, Mr. Enter called him an "idiot" and "a f***ing moron". He later went on to reveal that this episode was his least favorite of the series. Because of this review, a huge harassment campaign was directed towards Casey Alexander on Twitter by some of Mr. Enter's fans, much to the harsh criticism from others. In response to the incident, Mr. Enter apologized and acknowledged his outrage as unwarranted, and he "plans to rectify it as much as possible."
On February 18th, 2017, a YouTuber named Dicaprio Delorean claims Mr. Enter's reviews were unoriginal, and closely resembles other reviewers such as RebelTaxi, Nostalgia Critic, and Jeremy Jahns (even though Mr. Enter cited at least Nostalgia Critic to be an inspiration). According to Dicaprio, Enter mostly "just repeated" RebelTaxi's review of Rapsittie Street Kids, Jeremy Jahns's review of Cars 2, and TheHeroOfTomorrow's review of The Night B4 Christmas. She also dislikes Enter's sense of humor, as she believes it to be "generic and cliche."
Despite these criticisms and controversies, further criticism has been directed towards Mr. Enter's fanbase. The majority of his fanbase defends Mr. Enter on the grounds of him dealing with Asperger's syndrome, depression, anxiety, stress, and a plethora of other mental disorders. They're also known for making their own Animated Atrocities Scorecards on DeviantArt and either have the same opinion as him or trying to be like him with their own opinions. Some former subscribers and viewers note that instead of aiding Mr. Enter to learn and grow better, they dismiss criticism as "hate" and "immature" and to simply "respect Mr. Enter's opinions as only opinions". However, many users (including MegaDoopTV) had criticized Enter due to his ongoing problems. Upon further inspection in regards to the name of his series, some critics have claimed that Enter stole the term "Animated Atrocities" from BigManX.
In 2019, Mr. Enter started a series of videos called "Nick O Rama" where he attempted to review all the original Nickelodeon animated shows that came out up to that point. Some users criticized him for not watching all the episodes of several of the shows to give them a fair analysis and review.
In 2020, Mr. Enter uploaded three videos of himself talking about his opinions on the COVID-19 pandemic, which received the most criticism of all of his videos. As a result, some speculated that Mr. Enter was becoming a member of the Alt-Right, which he was quick to deny. Mr. Enter later wrote a DeviantArt post that received even more criticism, which raised even more suspicions. In the end, all of his previous controversies caught up to him, and have caused him to lose subscribers ever since. His editor, Crimson Mayhem, left because of his beliefs. PhantomStrider also disassociated from him for this reason, as shown in the update of his collab video with Enter, where the thumbnail was change to not have Enter and Enter's channel is no longer promoted (though the video itself remains the same).
In mid April 2022, he gathered major controversy after his review on Turning Red, in which he stated that the film should not have as much of an upbeat mood as it does, as the film took place in 2002, less than a year after the 9/11 terror attacks. As a result, his take was panned by many people, feeling it was asinine especially since the film took place in Canada while 9/11 was an American terrorist attack, and mentioning it would've been unnecessary, as it’s a fantasy film about a tween girl who can turn into a red panda, and even trended on Twitter as a result. It also caused the comments on the Turning Red review to be disabled, and the video ended up receiving more dislikes than likes, a first for the channel. By early June, the dislikes had reached over 20.000, according to data extracted by Return YouTube Dislike. He also got criticized for saying that "cartoons were more diverse back then" and bringing up examples of 2000s shows created by white people that had POC leads/characters and a singular episode of the 2001 Canadian animated show Braceface focusing on the main character getting her period. Enter would post a Twitter thread seemingly reveling in the attention he got, along with his past controversies, and even mocked a few who criticized him, including his former editor Crimson Mayhem, drawing further ire and disgust from viewers.
