Considering the struggles anime voice actors are facing in the current climate, many are attempting to get creative with their free time. 34-year-old voice actor Yuki Kaji—known for voicing Eren Jaeger in Attack on Titan among other roles—is using his time constructively, and his latest project is a YouTube channel dedicated to reading aloud.
The channel just opened on April 7, but as of this writing it already has over 37k subscribers. Kaji shared a message on his official Twitter at the time of launch, saying, “What I can do now. I have opened my YouTube channel and will start reading aloud in parallel with Twitter. After talking with my fellow voice actors, I have taken action. I hope you live your days warmly and pleasantly in this inconvenient time as much as possible.”
He also shared an introductory video on his channel, starting with, “Reading aloud is a wonderful culture. I am still immature, but I wish I could reconfirm its charm and learn from it. I will read it with all my heart, so I hope adults as well as children will enjoy it.”
His first official reading video will be posted soon.
