Holden Bramley is an American YouTuber who made anime videos on his channel, HoldenReviews, which now goes by the name of Holden Casanova given that a notable claim of his would be that he is a devilishly handsome blonde-haired casanova.

He has made very few reviews in the past 3 years, and updates at a very slow pace. He also had a series called HoldenRants, of which there was only one episode. Many fans have given him the nickname of HoldenHiatus due to the lack of updates in the video department.

In 2018, Holden left YouTube as a whole to focus on his animation studio, Studio Lotus. And despite no longer making videos, he currently has 27,200 subscribers on his channel.

Holden was one of the four main hosts on the now-defunct podcast known as PodTaku. He frequently appeared alongside that of Arkada from Glass Reflection, Gigguk from the Anime Zone, and Jeanne from Anime Appraisal (that is until she went on a 2 1/2 year-long hiatus). He would also occasionally appear on its sister podcast, J-Taku, which is a podcast for talking about more specific anime-related subjects, rather than just having general discussions about anything like PodTaku.

Anime no Yume

Anime no Yume is (or was) a podcast which acts as a sort of successor to both PodTaku and J-Taku. Holden runs the podcast alongside Gigguk and Jeanne, and the episodes tend to feature any random guests that they want to bring in during each individual episode where they just randomly talk about anime and related things.
