History[edit | edit source]
Boco first started watching abridged videos in 2011. She discovered them via TeamFourStar when she found a highlight video of theirs whilst idly browsing YouTube instead of doing school work.
She first became interested in creating abridged content in 2012. She had decided on a show but at the time she did not have the money for the editing software or DVDs, so she decided to stay with the Lets Plays she had been making since 2010.
In 2014 she once again became interested in abridging and, on the seventh of August, she joined AbridgedForums to ask tech-related questions, however, she never became active. Later in 2014, she created the skeleton of her first script. This script never went on to become anything.
In July of 2015, she created the channel Seio Academy to host her abridged content since she didn't want to risk losing her personal channel to copyright strikes.
In late December of 2015, she wrote and completed her first script, a Christmas special using the Christmas episode of Kampfer. This never saw the light of day, which is better for everyone, as according to her, "It was filled with poorly constructed sex jokes".
In March of 2016 she was recruited by QuizGuru along with Spritestuff and Xtravmon help write a parody of the Phoenix Wright anime before it came out, she barely had anything to do with the writing process though since she had to leave to record her podcast, and when she came back the writing was done.
In April of 2016, she began writing on the first of a series of planned one shots intended to be the bad first videos that every abridger has, this was Girls und Panzer: Und Shot.
In May of 2016, Boco and Jacob Angelstar were recruited by QuizGuru to help assist with writing on his series, Epicly Abridging Gurren Laggan the Encore.
At the end of June 2016, Team Four Star announced their Tenkaichi Ironman Budokai Abridgathon contest, and, when most of Boco's friends were snapped up by other teams or started their own, she decided on the anime Princess Princess since it was one the anime she owned, it would be easy to make fun of and that no one else would do it, this would be the first video she finished, it did not place and now Boco will openly say that is very bad in multiple ways. During TIBA Boco would join the unofficial TIBA Discord Server (Later known as ABcom) and become acquainted with more content creators such as Darkmoon and PyrOMG. She would later go on to become one of the mods on the server when it started getting more traffic.
In November, writing began for a AbCom community project written by Quizguru, Dusty Sox, Darkmoon, SuperNinja5506 and herself. This project has since been transferred to The Abridgers' Lounge discord server, nd has yet to come out and is now on indefinite hiatus.
In December of 2016, DokotorAppleJuce brought an idea of doing a round-up of all the abridging content that came out that month to the mod team of AbCom, Boco volunteered as a Judge and thumbnail designer, this series was called The AbCom Abridged Round-Up. It is now called the Abridged Rewind after being transferred to The Abridgers' Lounge.
In February of 2017, there was a large difference of opinion between the owner of AbCom and a majority of the mods (including Boco). This lead to the demodding of the mods involved and the eventual creation of AbLo, where Boco is now a mod.
On October 19th of 2017, an update video was released on the Seio Academy youtube channel detailing its future. Boco stated that she would not only be uploading abridged content on the channel. She didn't go into much detail but did say that there would be other anime related videos. She also detailed the upcoming releases on the channel and teased two new projects with the projected release date being, "sometime in 2018".
In April of 2018, she released episode one of Hakata Tonkotsu RaMENT in collaboration with SuperNinja5506 of MagicAbridged, and also debuted the re-branding of her channel to "EyeCandy Productions" citing that "I felt the old name limited what I could do too much"
