Joey Bizinger (born: September 28, 1994 (1994-09-28) [age 24]), better known online as The Anime Man, is an Australian-born YouTuber of Japanese and Hungarian descent who makes videos about anime and sometimes about gaming related topics. He is good friends with fellow YouTubers, Einshine and SouL Animation, appearing in each other's videos multiple times. Joey is well-known for collaborating with other Youtubers like Lost Pause, Misty Chronexia, CDawgVA and even PewDiePie. He is currently dating Akidearest with whom he moved together in Japan.
Right now, The Anime Man is the most subscribed YouTuber in the anime community, excluding abridging channels like TeamFourStar, amassing over 1.7 million subscribers along with 267 million video views. He also has a second channel, simply called Joey, which he created back in 2016 and used as his vlog channel.
Joey was born in Australia in 1994. His mother is Japanese and his father is Hungarian. Joey was raised in Australia but often visited Japan. Due to his upbringing, he can speak fluent Japanese. In May 2016, he moved to Japan where he lives with his girlfriend. He considers himself an "otaku" and is 6'.
'#AnswerMeSenpai'is Joey's Q&A series where he answers his fans' questions, sometimes seriously, but more often humorously. To have the possibility of getting their questions answered, they have to put #AnswerMeSenpai in their tweet on Twitter or ask it under his most recent #AnswerMeSenpai video. Even then, most people won't get their questions answered, due to how many fans he has and just the huge abundance of questions which he receives. It's similar to Noble's #NobleSenpai and Akidearest's #DearAki.
This is Joey's series where he picks strange, weird, and screwed up things from Japan and he either rants about and/or discusses them in a video. These topics can revolve around Japanese culture, Japanese society, anime/manga or literally anything else that he considers screwed/hilarious/strange in Japan.

Monthly Otaku Collection
This is Joey's monthly series where he makes videos presenting all anime and manga DVD's, volumes, and other merchandise he bought that month. It's similar to Akidearest's Monthly Otaku Favorites.
Joey's Anime Rants is where he picks a topic in the anime industry, the YouTube anime community, in a specific anime or anything else like that, and he rants and complains about it for awhile.
Being part Japanese and fluent in the language, Joey occasionally does a series on his channel called Japanese 101. This is a series where he doesn't teach people how to speak the language, but discusses popular Japanese words and/or phrases, what they mean, and their origin. However, for those who are interested in learning how to speak Japanese (or any language for that matter) fluently, he has, on many occasions, given shout-outs for the language learning program which is called LinguaLift.

Similar to his friend Lost Pause, Joey started out on YouTube doing let's plays of various visual novels. He stopped doing this a few years ago when he felt they were overdone, not to mention that many of them were borderline infringing on YouTube's Community Guidelines with the near nudity that they tended to have.
One of the first types of videos that Joey made were anime reviews. He only did a few though, and he stopped doing them because he felt like they were terrible and that he wasn't very good doing actual reviews.

"And I'm not gonna be the first one to say this, and the last one to say this. But I think I speak on behalf of everybody who lives in Japan, has a Japanese family, everybody who loves Japan, and anybody who has only the most respect for the Japanese people, and the culture, and the places, and the way of life. I think I speak on behalf of every single person in saying, 'Logan, get the FUCK out of my country.'" - Joey's final criticism of Logan Paul, and his demand for Logan to leave Japan (My Response to Logan Paul's Suicide Forest Controversy)
