Share this

Anime isn’t just cartoons. Like any form of media, it’s a place to be seen, heard, inspired, and more. 

Starting in 2013, my journey as a content creator has been a bumpy ride, to say the least.

I had some wins, tragic losses but more importantly, battles with anxiety and depression to the point I lost myself. So where does anime come into the picture?

Well, for me anime was my saving grace. Its various and sometimes outrageous stories allowed me to escape from my mind. Characters like Naruto inspired me to fight.

How could you not when a young boy with an actual demon inside of him reaches his dream? Anime allowed me to fall in love with content creation again leading to the life I have now.  Anime truly allowed me to find myself again.

Now, as anime has given to me, I want to give back to it and others. Both through my own content, and an initiative called Anime Onlies. You can learn more about that in the video below.

Better known as “Yaseenthatguy”, Yasin experienced exponentially fast growth when he started on Tiktok, as his followers immediately related to and found comfort in the 26 year old. As an advocate for mental health, something he shares openly with his audience, the mission became clear – to share his infectious energy, smile, and love for anime and all fandoms while creating a safe space for fans to express their excitement and love as well. With his 200k+ followers part of this journey, Yasin will now be heading up Anime Onlies, the new Anime section on the Nerd Initiative Network.
