Dirty Old Man Tanaka Joins Ranks of Virtual YouTubers in Japan

posted on by Jennifer Sherman

As a middle-aged man in a tank top and boxers, Tanaka no Ossan is a far cry from the typical appearance of a virtual YouTuber. Most virtual YouTubers in Japan are young, cute female characters. However, that did not stop 55-year-old Yoshio Tanaka from starting his own channel. In the video below, Tanaka introduces himself and his new YouTube channel.

Tanaka also launched an official website and Twitter account on Wednesday. The English name that appears in the Tanaka no Ossan logo is "Dirty Old Man Tanaka."

Although he just debuted, Tanaka already appeared as "special MC" on the GGTV program on Wednesday. The program is targeted at beginners playing Riot Games' League of Legends game.
