To anime fans, he probably needs no introduction. The Japanese-Australian YouTube personality Joey Bizinger, known throughout the anisphere as The Anime Man, is probably the most recognizable name in the anime-focused YouTube community, his channel boasting over 1.5 million subscribers at the time of writing. As anime has become more mainstream internationally, his fan base continues to grow, attracted to his videos in which he discusses and reviews anime, as well as other aspects of Japanese culture, all in an irreverent and humorous style.
In addition to creating popular videos on his channel, The Anime Man keeps busy with appearances at anime conventions (for example, Anime Expo in LA and NicoNico Choukaigi in Japan) and voice acting. In fact, he has the distinction of being the first male YouTuber to voice act in a Japanese anime, Pop Team Epic, earlier this year.
We sat down with The Anime Man at a coffee shop in Shinjuku to find out more about the unique set of circumstances and experiences that contributed to his success, his experience voice acting in Pop Team Epic and his thoughts on the Japanese voice acting industry.
