Mother's Basement, real name Geoff Thew, is a YouTuber who makes anime and game analysis videos, as well as a self proclaimed "professional dirtbag." He's best known for the series What's in a Scene?, where he over-analyses particular scenes in anime and What's in an OP?, where he over-analyses the openings of particular anime. He's good friends with Digibro, and has made a four hour long debate on whether the anime series ERASED is any good.
