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 her role as "The Great" Rukia in the early adaptation of Bleach Soma Abridged by Semisoma1, also later known as TheAzureCrow.

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

Her next project started with Semisoma1, an abridged series called Bleach Soma Abridged  where she primarily did the voices of "The Great" Rukia & Orihime. She 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). More recently she has been focusing on 07-Ghost Abridged which she 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. She is a co-writer & voice actress for Black Butler abridged, voicing Finnian, Maylene, & her favorite upcoming role as Madam red.

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

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