Mike Inel Wiki Bio
Mike Inel – which is his real name – was born in the Philippines on 23 August 1988 – his zodiac sign is Virgo, and he holds Filipino nationality. He’s a YouTuber and a social media star, who is probably known best for his eponymous YouTube channel, which he launched on 11 October 2006; it’s today subscribed to by close to two million people, and numbers nearly 300 million views of all his videos combined – most of these are Mike’s original animations, while he occasionally reviews popular animes. He uploaded his first video “Draw With Me (WIP)” in 2008, which has since been watched over 500,000 times, and features Mike showing his fans some drawing tricks.
Mike is also using the pseudonym ‘manyakis’, under which he’s uploading pornographic animations on various websites.
Early life and education
Mike was raised in the Philippines by his parents, about whom nothing is known as he respects their privacy; it’s believed that his father worked as a cashier at a local supermarket, and that his mother was a babysitter. Because Mike hasn’t spoken of having any siblings, most people believe that he’s an only child.
He became interested in animation while still attending a local elementary school; Mike was initially a huge fan of animated films and animes, before he started thinking about creating animations himself.
He learned about the technique on his own when attending a local high school, while he was interested in a couple of other things during those four years, including playing video games and acting with the school’s drama club.
He matriculated in 2006, and then launched his YouTube channel, thus choosing not to pursue a college degree; Mike worked various jobs to financially support himself while making a name for himself on the internet.
Most popular YouTube videos
Mike is mostly popular on YouTube for turning animated series into animes, but also for his original animated videos; we’re going to mention three of his most popular videos, which have helped him attract many subscribers.
His #1 video “What if “The Amazing World Of Gumball” was an Anime” has been watched close to 80 million times since 18 January 2015, and the title is quite self-explanatory.
His second most popular video “What if “Gravity Falls” was an Anime” has been viewed more than 40 million times since 9 October 2014, and is done in a similar way to the above mentioned video.
Third of Mike’s most popular videos is “What if “The Amazing World Of Gumball” was an Anime (Comparison)”, watched close to 40 million times since 18 January 2015.
Mike prefers to keep details of his private life to himself, which is why he doesn’t have an Instagram account, however, there is a fan page made for him, which is today followed by close to 15,000 people, and numbers more than 300 pictures uploaded onto it. The pictures are mostly his own animations, as it’s widely known that Mike is yet to show his face on the internet, but there is still that one picture of him uploaded onto Facebook by a fan, which features the two of them at an anime-related event in the Philippines.
Mike launched his Twitter account in February 2016, and has since amassed close to 100,000 followers, while he’s tweeted over 200 times. Most of Mike’s tweets are pictures of characters which can be seen in his YouTube videos, while he occasionally just writes to announce the upload of his latest video.

This is mostly why there are various rumors circulating the internet, concerning both his past and present affairs, as well as his sexual orientation.
Some of his fans believe him to be gay, and this to be the reason behind Mike not speaking of the women whom he’s dated.

There are also some who believe that he’s today in a long-term relationship with a non-celebrity Filipino girl, while some think that he’s a married man; none of this has been addressed by Mike.
