My Top 5 Japanese YouTubers


I started watching Japanese YouTubers when I was prepping myself for Japan about 4 years ago. I wanted to get used to listening to actual Japanese speakers use the language rather than rely on anime the whole time. Watching the videos definitely helped me improve my listening but I soon found myself unable to stop watching their videos.

***These YouTubers are not arranged in any particular order.***

PDRKabushikiGaisha

PDR created this channel as a spoof of his younger brother PDS's YouTube channel. I don't remember how I came across Duncan exactly, but I think it was around the time I was going around Youtube looking for people who made videos exclusively about Japan. PDR or Duncan (yes, he has an English name as he is only half Japanese) is the only Japanese YouTuber on the list that has amazing English. It's always surreal to hear him speak in his distinctly British accent as he had spent some time in the UK when he was younger. While he mainly vlogs in Japanese on his main channel, you can expect English subtitles and distinctly Western style humour and great editing. I used to binge watch him all the time. He also has an English channel (he doesn't update often) and a collab channel with his wife Mimei who is also a YouTuber.
 Here's one of his Q&A videos:

Fischer's (フィッシャーズ)

This is a gem of a channel I came across thanks to YouTube's autoplay function. This channel mainly focuses on the various antics and adventures of a group of friends. From hilarious pranks to investigating haunted spots there are various videos for you to enjoy. While the channel mainly features the group's leader, Silk Road or Shiruku and Ndaho (both screen names), you'll see the other members like Peketan, Motoki, Masai, Daama and Zakao appear on the channel occasionally too. Unfortunately, the videos do not have any English subtitles. :(

I love this video they made for YouTube Fan Fest 2016:

Gyu Channel (恭チャンネル)

This is another channel I don't know how I came across. I believe the first video I watched from Kyouichiro's channel was him making giant pudding. After that, I just couldn't stop watching him do food reviews. However, he doesn't just eat. He's also a great singer and he does various voice impressions. Kyouichiro's channel doesn't have subtitles either, but unlike Fischer's channel, it can be pretty hard to enjoy and follow unless you have an understanding of Japanese. Kyouichiro has also appeared in various Japanese entertainment shows. 

Here's Kyou-chan's super catchy channel intro:

Yuka Kinoshita

This Youtuber was featured in my Oogui post. She's one of my favourite YouTubers. I can't explain why it's so mesmerizing just to watch her eat. Yuka does a lot of food reviews on her channel. She also does livestreams where she eats large meals while hanging out with her fans. She's appeared on various Japanese eating shows on TV and even has her own gaming app. Yuka has English subtitles on her videos so you should definitely go check out some of her videos!

If you're wondering what's so good about watching someone eat, Yuka has an adorable personality. Her random comments throughout the video, awkwardness and sometimes clumsy nature are what make her videos so fun to watch.

Here she is eating 10 packs of Sedaap Indomee:

Avantiz (アバンティーズ)

This is a fairly new YouTube channel that I've subscribed to. I've seen them suggested by YouTube a few times but I refused to check them out because I was enjoying Fischer's videos. It wasn't until they did a collab with Fischer's that I decided to sub to their channel. They do basically the same things as Fischer's. There are lots of wtf moments and messing around. If you like watching Japanese guys do stupid things then this is the channel for you. However, just like Fischer's they don't have subs either.

 I haven't been watching them long enough to recommend a video, so here is a one of their pranks: 


***

Hajime Syacho was on this list but I lost all respect for him after news of his cheating came out. It just goes to show that you really can't judge a book by its cover. He seemed like a really good guy. You can read more about the scandal here

Another YouTuber that I would have liked to add to this list is Maru the cat's channel but I thought I'd just list a bunch of humans instead.

 If you watch other Japanese YouTubers similar to the ones I've listed above, do share them with me and I'll check them out! I'd love to subscribe to new YouTubers. 😍

Played Go Stop for the First Time


Recently, I had the opportunity to sleepover at Nuri's house during the weekend. I had never been to her house and it had been a while since I had met up with her so I thought why not?

The Story Game


My uni mates and I have two separate Skype chat groups. One for chatting and the other for what we call 'The Story Game'. In the 'Story Game' chat group, we each get a turn to post one sentence to progress the story. It was inspired by a game with the same rules but in the game you only get to use one word for each turn.

I'm not very good at explaining these things. You just need to know that this chat group has been going for a while now and we have restarted the story a couple times already because the content became a little too.... rated. Not that I mind, but sometimes it's difficult to continue where someone left off, especially when it's about a duck and a dog that are in love.

Yeah. We have crazy imaginations. 



Anyway, I've been hopelessly into Ultraman. I've watched Ultraman Dyna, Ultraman Cosmos and many of the movies. So I was kind of interested in getting Ultraman involved in the story somehow, which is how the story ended up progressing in the way that it did. (Not that it's my fault).

To summarize the story, this crocodile was transported to duck haven and was gonna kill all the ducks. 


I was so excited to get Ultraman and kaiju into the story. Little did I know, things were not going to end up going the way I wanted them to. (⊙△⊙✿)


 Thanks, Kelly. Thank you so much. Amazing. Wow. Great. 


A wild Hon Mun appears and makes things worse. (⊙△⊙;;;;;;;)

Our regular group chat
Just when I thought things couldn't get any worse, Yap, my fellow yaoi lover appeared out of nowhere and made it even MORE worse. 


I wonder if Ultraman would be able to come out of this in one piece... At least leave him his dignity. 
(;w;)
