B Tier

The Average Anime YouTubers Tier List
The Mediocre Class

Now coming towards the B-Tier of the ranking, the anime influencers added to the B-Tier are somewhat middle-of-the-road when it comes to the content and overall performance on YouTube. The Anime YouTubers in the B-Tier are not that bad, but they still fall short compared to the Anime YouTubers in the S and A-Tier.

Misty Chronexia

Mathieu Brunelle is a Canadian Internet Personality who hosts a YouTube channel by the name of Misty Chronexia, who mainly focuses on anime reviews in of the top 10 of some sort; it almost feels like the viewer is gazing through a giant anime encyclopedia and Vlogging which mainly features the influencer himself.

Swagkage is an American Anime YouTuber, and just as the name “Swagkage” suggests, the guy is obsessed with Naruto, an anime worthy of it being called one of the best Anime for anyone to watch. Swagkage, on his YouTube channel, mostly looks into Naruto-related content, for instance, discussing various fan theories over comparing power levels of different characters in the anime series.

However, the anime influencer does not make it past the B-Tier for me, as the content he provides is oddly specific and lacks verity, leaving a major chunk of viewers unserved.

C Tier

Below-Par Anime YouTubers Tier List
A Below Average Phenomenon

After the B-Tier, the next Tier is the C-Tier. This tier is the below-average Tier. Those anime YouTubers or influencers are added who, on the looks, may have the potential to do better but their current form otherwise; with everything said, let’s move towards the First Anime YouTuber in the C-Tier of the Tier List.

Chibi Reviews

Chibi Reviews is an American YouTuber who started his YouTube career way back in 2013 and almost nine years; the anime influencer has only managed to gain a total of 426 thousand subscribers because his YouTube content is mostly based on anime review videos and discussions of various anime news from around the world, as there is already a large number of a content creator making the same the content due to which it is fairly difficult to attract traffic, However, in my opinion, his YouTube content is fairly basic and lacks structure, he is added to the C-Tier.

D Tier

Worst Influencers
Full of Cringe

At last, we made our way to the D-Tier of the tier list, which consists of the worst content creators in the entire Tier List. Content being cringe, poor performance, and bad word of mouth in the community conclude the content creators in the D-Tier. These YouTubers have let down the fans and may even have discouraged the new audience from watching Anime—an absolute disgrace.

Cdawg va

Cdawg VA is an Anime YouTuber from the United Kingdom. He normally produces Vlogs and other anime-related stuff like reviews, rundowns, etc. However, I am not a big fan of his work. Firstly, in most of his videos, he talks in a third-person voice, which is pretty annoying and can come off as a cringe for most people. He is added to the D-Tier of the Tier List.

The YouTube channel first came into being in late 2006, and the track has only gained a total of 70 thousand subscribers because the content creator relays quite a bit on click baits, which can be annoying; he is added to the D-Tier of the Tier List.
