VegetaSasuke0 started as a member of the abridged community in 2007 simply by being a fan of some of the first abridged series'. His early influences sited were Gozar, LittleKuriboh, Whiteash (FroLegend), Hbi2k, & Borinyukami . Starting out, he began editing his projects on a laptop with a bad built in microphone & Windows Movie Maker like most abridgers at the time did, shortly after he began dealing with copyright claims over his own parodies, one that was most known as DBZAR, thus losing his original account known as RockLee5000, then again as RockLee5001 & RockLee5002, then going through the process of other different accounts before finally settling upon his current username on January 25th, 2009. When creating the VegetaSasuke0 account, he settled upon a Saiyuki Reload & Gunlock abridged series since Whiteash (FroLegend) had vanished from youtube & there was no other Saiyuki Reload abridged series, this series spanned for three episodes, & while that series wasn't a very good fit for him. In 2009, VegetaSasuke0 decided to branch out & meet some of the abridgers that he admired, seeking out TwilightWolf183, FlameAlchemist35, Chromegloss55, the late EdricODoom, MidnightDevont, Semisoma1, & even Nowacking, that is how he met IAmKitsumi & SoulReaperHikuru, through various friends.
He then decided to open another side channel under the title of "AnimeParodiesInc" which was going to be for parodies & abridged series' that did not fit his main channel or any of his backup accounts. By 2010 he decided on doing a parody series, using a term called "Sagas", & started abridging School Days with girlfriend at the time, Kikyo228. He decided on putting his School Days abridged on the AnimeParodiesInc channel because he had felt that the channel needed some content, due to his lack of production on any of his one shot parodies, that series somehow became quite a hit with fans. Later on VegetaSasuke0 decided to get into contact with GrimReaperSakura, & do a Dance In The Vampire Bund Abridged, with Kikyo228 voicing one of the characters. By the first half of 2011, with six episodes spanning School Days TAS, Kikyo228 decided to go separate with VegetaSasuke0, forcing VegetaSasuke0 to cancel his series, as well as almost cancel his Dance In The Vampire Bund series, though fortunate enough to find a replacement for Kikyo228, the series lasted two more episodes before VegetaSasuke0 decided to leave the community out of fear of abridging being "dead". When he left the abridged community, he was deemed as "the abridging anti-christ" by himself, as well as other members of the abridged community. Though despite all of this drama, VegetaSasuke0 met a few friends from his drama, one being a young up in coming abridger by the username of Zerosigner, who at the time was a very big fan of his work, & wanted to be a School Days Abridger much like him, another would be UnforgivenRonin, who agreed with what VegetaSasuke0 had to say. Though with much gains, comes some losses as GrimReaperSakura refused to work with him from that point forward out of fear that her projects, as well as herself would be attacked for being aligned with him, although VegetaSasuke0 mentioned that she had an attitude issue, along with that she was a creative control freak & he was glad to move on from working with her because of those issues, but stated that if she worked on those issues, that he would be interested with getting into contact with her again in the future, simply put "The ball is in her court".
As of this writing, the only thing that VegetaSasuke0 works on now is an occasional episode of Gantz Sagas, as well as the revival of his School Days Abridged (which is close to being completed), but he is thinking about getting back into making more videos after his long hiatus from the parody scene. He has stated that he wanted to do something different with his channel, something like top 10 videos, or reviews, but he has yet to get too deep into either of those projects because he has a busy schedule. Though despite his retirement at the time, VegetaSasuke0 never stopped watching abridged series', & still enjoys some despite his responses to the community.
VegetaSasuke0 has various backup channels, with every backup he adds a zero to his name, the backups are VegetaSasuke00, VegetaSasuke000, & TheVegetasasuke0. Much like Zeromaster, VegetaSasuke0 also has separate channels for his own projects, such as VS0Dubs, VS0Commentaries, sv0amv, & amvsvs0. His twitter handle is @vegetasasuke0, in case you want to see his ramblings. He also has a Voice Acting Alliance page in case you want to contact him for scouting, but he mostly prefers private messages on any of his Youtube accounts.
For a short period in 2009 to 2010, VegetaSasuke0 had done interviews with various abridgers. These abridgers were TwilightWolf183, Midnight Devont, Chromegloss55, Nowacking, HokageTitan, Borinyukami, Acearius, & MegaLagann. Most of these interviews were hosted on the original channel for The Sagas Council, but since the channel was suspended, the interviews with HokageTitan, Nowacking, Acearius & MegaLagann were lost. One of the most noticeable moments from his interview series was actually an off the record conversation with Nowacking, where she explained in detail about her relationship at the time with Semisoma1, explaining that she "Did everything but sex" with him, which responded with VS0's longtime friend & fellow Sagas Council member HN5353 responding with "So you sucked him off but he got pissed off because you wouldn't f**k him", in which she responded with a simple "Yes".
Prank Calls Edit
Around the same time as his interviewing, VegetaSasuke0 had done a fair share of prank calls, pioneering prank calls for the abridged community with guest appearances from different abridgers & parody artists. Guest appearances include TwilightWolf183, FlameAlchemist35, Acearius, HN5353, Kikyo228, EdricODoom, Chromegloss55, & HokageTitan. He later opened up a separate channel for his prank calls called simply VS0Pranks.
In 2009, VegetaSasuke0 auditioned for HN5353's next big parody series known as "Dragon Ball GT Sagas", although it never became of anything, it did pave the way for future projects with the term "Sagas". Some time around 2010, VegetaSasuke0 started a group for the parody term known as "Sagas" with a group of people (one being HN5353), though at this time the only three remaining are himself, HN5353, & SoulReaperHikuru. The Sagas Council was going to include various other projects (like possibly Let's Plays, commentaries, as well as interviews), but instead resulted into nothing but ranting, despite the various other "Sagas" projects that they had going for them. Every so often they do a video or two, but the fanbase has since died out. The rant videos had started in late 2011, or early 2012 with a video called "We Hate The State Of The Abridged Community" which explained why the group hated what was going on, smaller abridgers being harder to find because of them being filtered out by the top abridgers like members of Team Four Star, as well as people like Nowacking & 1KidsEntertainment. When the video "Abridging Is Dead" came out, it resulted in the entire community turning their backs on the group, mostly because of some jokes that were taken a bit too serious, & more or less taken on as a rant. After the "Abridging Is Dead" video, The Sagas Council decided to continue with what the community thought they were already doing, & do more ranting. VegetaSasuke0 & HN5353 have gone as far as to dedicate multiple channels, as well as multiple series' to ranting, such as their famous "Alphabet Soup With The Sagas Council", which was them pulling names from a hat in order to figure out who to rant about next.
Due to The Sagas Council, VegetaSasuke0 has garnered a lot of hate over the years. Noticeable hate is by 1KidsEntertainment, who hates VegetaSasuke0 his quote for his Pokemon abridged, stating that 1kids' humor "Sucks balls". Another noticeable moment between VegetaSasuke0 & 1KidsEntertainment was an exchange over twitter when VegetaSasuke0's close friend EdricODoom passed away, VegetaSasuke0 called 1Kids out for trying to "profit" over Edric's passing. Another person with a long history of hating on The Sagas Council is TsubasaNoAMVPro, who even went out of his way to dedicate a video to them, calling them his "biggest fans". Violetishot (aka VioletStar/TheFallenStar143) who happened to be TwilightWolf's girlfriend at the time, was noted once for stating that she would "Blow VegetaSasuke0 away with a shotgun" if she had the chance. The Sagas Council have received such bad reputation that they even have an Encyclopedia Dramatica page, archiving their rise & fall. The Sagas Council also have a website for their history of videos.
On January 16th, 2017 VegetaSasuke0 returned to making discussion/rant videos with a video spoofing Donald Trump's slogan "Make America Great Again!", & replacing it with term "Make Abridging Great Again!", though the matters at hand are very serious, it is very different than the typical rant video, replaced with less of a raging tone, & more of an adult look on the matters at hand. He sent the video to ProfKranc (who does his own type of podcast where he & fellow abridged community members discuss the state of abridging), he mentioned how he was glad that someone else brought up the matter & that it needed to be made, stating that there are a lot of things in it that people need to hear.
On November 12th 2009, VegetaSasuke0 opened up another channel called "AnimeParodiesInc", based on inspiration from an old account that had been opened by his friend HN5353 a very long time ago. This channel would be where both of them would post a bunch of Dragon Ball Z parodies, as well as VegetaSasuke0's School Days Abridged, because it didn't seam to fit on his own channel at the time, along with the fact that he didn't want it to be overshadowed by any of the other content that he had on his personal channel at the time.
This channel was also going to be the home of one of his other projects, a Beck Mongolian Chop Squad Abridged Series that was due for release sometime in 2011, which was in the editing stage before the footage & lines were lost, though the script still remains in some form. VegetaSasuke0 has stated that he would also be interested at continuing this series at some point as well.
Comedic Style Edit
VegetaSasuke0, as well as the rest of The Sagas Council have a specific style that doesn't seam to be replicated very often. Their style feels at first like Family Guy in the sense of random references, along with a lot of jump cuts. They also tend to use a lot of black humor, noticeable moments include cropping black faces onto characters, along with cropping Katt Williams or James Brown into some of their scenes. They used to compare their style to Kevin Smith with "penis & fart" jokes, but have since been trying to evolve past that. A lot of viewers tend to find VegetaSasuke0, as well as the rest of The Sagas Council to have a very racial form of humor, which is very much frowned upon, yet they claim to make their videos for themselves & friends, so they refuse to care about what people tend to think.
VegetaSasuke0 edits with Sony Vegas Pro 10, records with Audacity & Adobe Audition. On occasion he will also use things like Adobe Premiere or Sony Vegas Pro 13, though he prefers 10 because it actually crashes less for him than 13. He rips & converts his video footage using Format Factory 2.96 (mainly because of lack of finding other good converting programs that are either free or are able to do what he needs), but on occasion he will use such programs such as AoA DVD Ripper, or Handbrake. He records using a Blue Yeti Microphone, though his environment is not the best for recording, he hopes that one day he will have a room or a home studio set up for both his music & recording purposes.
During the creation of his original parodies, VegetaSasuke0 used Windows Movie Maker much like any other starting out abridger, though he believed that all abridgers at the time recorded while watching a mute clip of the footage, in which doing so himself until he found a better method of doing things. One of the most noted things about VegetaSasuke0's editing style is his use of sound effects, one being the "woosh" sound, it is a staple of his that he uses throughout almost all of his projects & feels that it just fits his style & adds a comedic effect to it.
