MidnightDevont, also known as MidnightSoma, TheRedRubyDragon, xXObsidianRosexX, or simply by Tara (mostly called by friends), is an abridger & editor from Manchester New Hampshire, who started out as simply as voice actress, mostly known for the role as "The Great" Rukia in the early adaptation of Bleach Soma Abridged by Semisoma1, also later known as TheAzureCrow. MidnightDevont currently goes by the pronouns "they/them".


Pre-Abridging History[]

MidnightDevont started out as an editor before abridging, known under the name RavenSohma for the site AnimeMusicVideos.org. She has been editing since mid-2002, starting on Windows Movie Maker, later moving on to Adobe Premiere & then acquired a MAC where she started editing with Final Cut Pro. Having won 3 awards for AMV making. Midnight has been a fan of anime almost as long as she can remember, her first being Sailor Moon. Midnight stated in an interview that she wanted to be a voice actress since she first watched Funimation's dub of Fruits Basket & stated that she "admired" the dub.


MidnightDevont started their path into abridging with Arufonsa1 with Fullmetal Alchemist the Abridged series. Midnight's first roles being Rose & Lust, the series was short lived due to Devont's laziness but the first 2 episodes gained Devont a fair amount of popularity. During the time Midnight was working on Fullmetal Alchemist Abridged they received a private message from Semisoma1 {also known as Semisoma01, later known as TheAzureCrow or BlazingAzureCrow} asking for permission to make an FMA Abridged of his own. Midnight said "sure" & continued to talk to him over AIM & their friendship grew quickly, slowly into a more intimate relationship.

Midnight's next project started with Semisoma1, an abridged series called Bleach Soma Abridged  where Devont primarily did the voices of "The Great" Rukia & Orihime. Midnight then went on to voice a variety of voices in other abridged series such as Negima Abridged, RogueAbridger's Rurouni Kenshin abridged series, & some parody series' such as Gurren Lagann Sagas. She later laid off from Bleach Soma Abridged due to personal reasons (one of them being the relationship status of herself & Semisoma1, as things had gotten a bit more serious between them). Midnight then went on to primarily focus on 07-Ghost Abridged which was created along side CanadianJutsu, as well as scripting & editing along with Zeromaster for a project called Katekyo Hitman Reborn Abridged. Midnight has also been noted to be the only female member or guest appearing female abridger of Just5Guys. Midnight is a co-writer & voice actress for Black Butler abridged, voicing Finnian, Maylene, & Midnight's personal favorite upcoming role as Madam red.

MidnightDevont is an Active Anime fan who Loves Death Note & many other anime series'. Midnight has cosplayed in many cons & enjoys playing with their Nintendo DSi or Wii that easily distracts them. Midnight a kind person but can kick you in the butt sometimes. Midnight once had a Voice demo that was submitted & posted on Youtube under the original Midnightdevont account, which then resided in TheRedRubyDragon, until that account was suspended & went on to create the account xXObsidianRosexX, where 07 Ghost & other videos of their's reside. An account on Youtube exists Called RedladyDevont where Midnight would post Kuroshitsuji related stuff & Reviews on Anime so viewers don't have to. Once more, Midnight has loathing feelings for the Death Note movies & the Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni (When They Cry) dub. Midnight has since appeared in the Bleach parody known as "Tide The Parody" by the Animeniacs (also posted on RogueAbridger's youtube channel), where Midnight returned to her once beloved role of being the Great Rukia!

MidnightDevont self admits they watch many Abridged series, mostly those of their friends & the "Standard ones" such as TeamFourStar's work & LittleKuriboh. Midnight's favorite? well, to tell the truth, Midnight doesn't feel it is simple to pick one. it would probably end up being bias.


As of 2023, Midnight has taken up podcasting in the form of the Codename Anime Podcast.
