Animenz is a classically trained pianist well known for his virtuosic performance and transcription of Japanese animation (anime) music. With more than 1,100,000 subscribers on his YouTube channel and close to 1,200,000 followers on Facebook, Animenz’s unique renditions of popular anime tracks, marked with his distinctive style of variations, have gained a substantial following on the internet.
Animenz is an ardent fan of Japanese animation. His journey in transcribing and performing anime music began in 2009, when he wanted to play music from the anime “Chobits” but could not find the sheet music online. He started a blog to share his transcriptions and the Animenz YouTube channel in 2010 to share performance videos with fellow anime fans and music lovers. Since then, he has amassed a staunch online following and has performed internationally to acclaim since 2013.
