Early Life and Online Beginnings
Very little is known about Angel’s life prior to his rise to fame online as he has shared very limited information when it comes to his childhood, family, and education. It is known that he was born as (just) the eldest of twins, five minutes earlier than his twin brother Issac. He is of Japanese and Hispanic descent. At a young age, he became very interested in video games, from Nintendo in particular. Wanting to share his passion and possibly gain a career from it, he decided to try creating a channel on YouTube in 2011. YouTube is a video sharing website, and one of the most popular websites online, rated second in terms of traffic by Alexa internet.
The website is owned by Google which provides advertising revenue to content creators through the Google AdSense program. Users can upload videos to the site for others to view, who then have numerous features available to them such as subscriptions, commenting, rating, shares, playlists, and more.
AnimeBroMii’s first video on his channel was an unboxing of the video game “Donkey Kong 64”, an adventure platform game which was created for the Nintendo 64 console in 1999. It is the first “Donkey Kong” game to feature 3D gameplay, starring the titular character as he explores an island to try and rescue his friends who have been kidnapped.
The player goes through thematic levels, while completing puzzles and mini-games. The game received universal acclaim after its release, becoming a top seller for Nintendo during that year. Over the years, AnimeBroMii became known for using plushies of popular Nintendo characters, to act out sketches for his videos. One of his most popular series is a versus series which follows his Nintendo plushie characters as they battle each other in a video game, often featuring or starring them.
One of his most popular videos of this kind is “Mario Kart: Double Dash”, which was released for the Nintendo GameCube in 2003, and is the fourth installment of the “Mario Kart” series, following “Mario Kart” 64. The game received positive reviews, with many praising its graphics and new gameplay features.
Other Projects and Recent Endeavors
While AnimeBroMii continues to cater to his followers on his main channel, he has also experimented with other types of channels as well.
He created an experimental channel called Angibon Chan, which was intended to be a video blog (vlog) channel, but after uploading a video, he decided that he would no longer continue the project. He also created the channel MarioSonicPlush, which was intended to feature sketches and storylines featuring his plush toys, but was also discontinued after the creation of four videos. In recent years, he’s been continuing his streak of creating versus videos featuring his plush toys playing popular Nintendo games, playing more popular current video games, while also posting videos of old favorites.
One of latest posts is gameplay of “Crash Team Racing”, in which he pitted his plush toy of Crash Bandicoot versus his plush Cortex. “Crash Team Racing” was developed by Naughty Dog, and created for the PlayStation which makes it one of his few videos which doesn’t feature a Nintendo game. The game is the fourth installment of the “Crash Bandicoot” series, and was praised by critics after its release. A remake of the game was later introduced in 2018 called “Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled”.

Personal Life and Social Media
Not much is known in terms of AnimeBroMii’s romantic relationships, as he hasn’t shared a lot of detail about this aspect of his life. Many believe that he is single due to the lack of a presence of any potential partner in his public accounts. Aside from being a big fan of Nintendo video games, he is also a big fan of anime. Some of his favorites include “Naruto” and “The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya”. He also enjoys going to video game and anime conventions during his free time.
He has an Instagram account which has over 16,000 followers, and uses the platform to give followers an insight into his life apart from his work on YouTube. As evident from his videos, he has a large collection of anime, video games, and related plush toys. He also boasts of being capable of changing his hairstyle to that of characters from popular anime shows if needed. He showcases a bit of behind the scenes work too, in short video clips, including his preparation, voice acting, and filming of videos.
